If you have not already submitted a RSVP, there are a few seats left and we would love for you to join us Friday night for an evening of fellowship and celebration. Conversely, if you submitted a RSVP and will not be attending, please help us be good stewards of our funds and let Michele Bandy (Mbandy@GRACEChristian.net) know as soon as possible so that the caterer can be informed and your meal can be cancelled.
We still need 6-8 people to help with set-up and clean-up before and after Celebrate GRACE. Please consider filling one of the few remaining volunteer positions.
The Celebrate GRACE Auction Closes Thursday Night!

On March 2nd and 3rd, the entire GRACE faculty attended NCTIES, the North Carolina Technology in Education Society conference. We’re bringing back tons of great ideas! We’re working on writing up a post of our favorite takeaways, but in the meantime, here are a few shots of our faculty enjoying their learning. 🙂
Technology is fun!

Congratulations to the eight GRACE artists who placed in the GFWC State Art Competition. This is the final GFWC Art Competition and includes the best artworks from the State of North Carolina. All contestants in the State Competition had advanced by previously placing first or second in the Raleigh Competition and first in the District VI Competition.
Teen Tech Week is a national initiative encouraging libraries to showcase their digital resources. At GRACE, Mr. O’Brien has been busy planning activities for the week of March 20th. See the schedule below to see what this year’s Teen Tech Week will feature.
Monday, 3/20: Student Maker Faire
Bring in and display a project that you have made. You can leave your creation on the table in the main hallway all week to show other students what you have been building.
Tuesday, 3/21: Hour of Code
Come to the library during your elective period to try some easy coding. This will be a gentle introduction to writing code with Anna and Elsa of Frozen, or BB-88 from Star Wars.
Wednesday, 3/22: Robotics
Bring your lunch to the library to gain a hands-on demonstration with robotics from guest speaker Gabriel Vanderkin.
Thursday, 3/23: Dead-Tech Deconstruction
Ever want to bust open old electronics to see how they work? We will be opening different types of old technology to have a look inside. Hosted by the GRACE Maker Club, in the library after school.
Friday, 3/24: Retro Lunch & Raspberry Pi
Visit the library during your lunch to check out the Retro Pi, and hear how students created this cool gaming system out of one of our Maker Club Raspberry Pi boards. You’ll also have the opportunity to play some SNES style Zelda, or possibly other retro games.
