Best of all, thanks to the generosity of an anonymous donor, all gifts to GRACE will be matched, up to $100,000! That means your gift to GRACE – whether through the Online Auction or during Celebrate GRACE – will be doubled!


VOICES AROUND THE WORLD GALLERY

The Voices Around the World gallery was inspired by four different books read by groups of 9th-grade students during the third quarter. These books presented different cultural perspectives, most of them were true stories, and they all addressed real issues—refugees, child labor, famine, poverty, etc. Through these books, the students encountered a variety of “voices around the world.”

The Gallery exhibits reflect our increased understanding of other cultures, raise awareness of challenges or injustices experienced by different people groups, and inspire interest in reading these books. Stop by on Thursday, March 8th from 8 – 4 p.m. at Upper Campus Room 111.

YEARBOOK ORDERS & SHOUT OUTS

Now is a great time to place your order for your GRACE 2019-2020 yearbook. To order, go to www.jostensyearbooks.com and search GRACE Christian in Raleigh, NC. You know you’re at the right place when you see the GRACE Eagle! And don’t forget that you can put your mark on the 2019-2020 Yearbook with a SHOUT OUT. For only $5, you can have your words immortalized for years to come. You can thank a coach or a teacher, tell a friend how much they mean to you, or quote a favorite movie or TV show (appropriate for printing). Be clever because it is your SHOUT OUT. Print out the order form, write your statement on it, attach five dollars, give it to Miss Hawks, and you’re done. Please turn these in by the end of February. We look forward to seeing what you bring us.
