READY FOR HOMECOMING!
GRACE students, families, faculty and alumni – we hope you’ll join us for the big Homecoming Game on Friday at 7 p.m. against Arendell Parrott Academy. We will have a pre-game Tailgate Bash for the entire family including food trucks, inflatables, carnival games and more from 5:30 – 7:30 at the Athletic Field. In addition, we will have giveaways including rally towels and megaphones for the first fans in attendance. That night we will honor our 2019 Homecoming Court, GRACE Alumnus of the Year and Distinguished Honorary GRACE Alumnus of the Year. Look in your inbox for an email from Michele Bandy, Events Coordinator, for more information about Homecoming 2019.

COLLEGE CONNECTIONS

Calling ALL parents! Do you love what you do? Are you willing to share your passion for your career with GRACE juniors? If so, please contact Cathy Cole (CCole@GRACEChristian.net) in the College Counseling Department and let her know! We would like to invite you to come to GRACE (11 am – 12 pm on Monday, Tuesday or Thursday) to present and answer questions for 15-25 minutes in each of our Junior Seminar classes.   

Also, on the second Wednesday of each month between 8 – 9:15 a.m., the College Counseling Department will host College Connections – a drop-in meeting for any parent (in any grade) who has questions related to the college selection and application process. Mark your calendar and plan to attend October’s connection event on October 9th.
