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.
