We have had a busy week at GCA! Our students have been learning about pumpkins and the Preschool Blue class even got to make a volcano out of one! Wednesday was Karate Day and many of our students were able to learn some of the basics of Karate. We are looking forward to the preschool field trip to Mrs. Rogers farm on Friday the 26th! Please join us for Gethsemane Church's annual Oktoberfest on the 27th. It is always a lot of fun!

Highlights from the Kindergarten Lion Cubs!

We had a "teachable" moment on Tuesday. We were reading our Scholastic magazine and there were some subtraction problems on the back. They wanted to know how to subtract right then and there! I explained and did problems together with drawings. Every single student caught on and they all wanted more problems. We have a very bright group of "guys"! I'm proud of all of them!
