Dear 4th graders and families,

The class is looking forward to making a Thanksgiving craft with their buddies on Monday. We will also have some visitors, Mr. Tom Stanton will be visiting GSC with his falcon. A few of the upper grades will have the opportunity to to see bird adaptations in person.

The 4th grade class's basket theme for the Christmas Bazaar is gift cards. All proceeds from the basket sales come right back to GSC, so please consider contributing.

On line math and reading sources can be found by clicking on the link below. Students received a username and password that is glued into the front cover of their HW copybooks. There are digital versions of most of their math and reading books plus tools to help with understanding concepts.


Thank you for choosing GSC for your child!

Have a great week ~Mrs. Coughlin
