Support the 2017-2018 GRACE Annual Fund Campaign
The 2017-2018 Annual Fund Campaign will last from October 9th-20th! Gifts to the Annual Fund allows GRACE to invest in critical resources in many areas of school life including academics, athletics, fine arts, safety, security, and technology. Each day during the campaign we will highlight a different aspect of GRACE and how the Annual Fund supports each one.
Please prayerfully consider how you can be a part of this year’s Annual Fund Campaign. Strong parent participation is a key factor in us gaining access to outside foundation funding. Every gift, regardless of the amount, counts toward our goal of 100% participation. Please make your commitment (or let us know about the giving you are already doing) by filling out the 2017-2018 Annual Fund Commitment Card.
Day 4: We are Thankful for the Arts
In a culture that is seeing more schools defund arts education, GRACE is committed to giving each student at every grade level a solid foundation in the arts. Elementary students are engaged weekly in vocal and instrumental music as well as art enrichment classes. Middle school students build on these art and music foundations with the addition of dance and theatre elective classes. Students in high school have a variety of electives to choose from in each of the above areas as well as being able to participate in the strings ensemble or the chapel band. Performance opportunities exist with all the fine arts classes. Fine arts students learn perseverance and teamwork and the value of being part of something bigger than themselves as they work individually and in ensembles to develop the gifts and talents bestowed upon them by their Creator. Previous investments in the annual fund allowed for a complete overhaul of the upper campus chapel to created a better performing arts venue for GRACE students than existed before.
