CHRISTMAS STORE

Parents, after the Thanksgiving holiday break, Christmas activities will abound at GRACE. A favorite holiday tradition is the Christmas Store on the lower campus where students shop for a Christmas gift to be given to their parents/guardians. Every item is one dollar and students will shop either December 12th and 13th with their class during the school day. If you have a student in grades TK-5, please make sure to send in $2 with your student in an envelope marked “Christmas Store” by December 12th.

Volunteers are needed to help run the store. If you’d like to sign up, please click here.

GIVING TUESDAY!

As you’re thinking through your end-of-year giving, please consider giving a donation to GRACE Christian School. All donations are tax-deductible. To make a donation, or to find out more about giving to GRACE, click here.

JINGLE MINGLE

If you love to bake and want to show off your skills, then now is the time to get your “holiday bake on!” We are asking for volunteers to sign up and bring 2 dozen of their favorite homemade or store-bought cookies, bars, brownies or candies on Monday, December 9th. To sign up to bring treats, please click here. If you’d like to volunteer to help during the morning of the Jingle Mingle (we need volunteers for both upper and lower campus), please sign up here.

DON’T FORGET TO RE-ENROLL!

If you haven’t already, don’t forget to re-enroll your student for the 2020-2021 school year. Enrollment is now open to the general public, and many of the classes are beginning to fill up. Have an enrollment question? Please email kfowler@gracechristian.net.
