NEW SENIOR INTERNSHIP PROGRAM

GRACE families – does your place of employment offer internships? Want a neat way to give back to the GRACE community while also helping your business? Consider participating in our GRACE Senior Internship Program. Find out more by clicking here or by emailing Laura Jacobs at ljacobs@gracechristian.net.

STRAWBERRY UPDATE

Mrs. Boyd wants to say THANK YOU to so many GRACE families for ordering strawberries over the last two weeks! It looks like the season is winding down, so she will not have strawberries available next Saturday but may have a limited number to bring to GRACE this Wednesday evening, 5/13. Please email mboyd@gracechristian.net if interested.

REMINDERS

CHAPEL LIVE

Mr. Whelpley will be holding chapel live on our Social Media channels. Upper Campus chapel will be on Wednesdays at 12:30 p.m. on Instagram Live and Lower Campus chapel will be held on Fridays at 9 a.m. on Facebook Live.

LAST CALL FOR THE 2020 YEARBOOK + DIGITAL YEARBOOK SIGNING NEWS!

It’s not too late to a 2019-2020 yearbook! You can still place your order by going to jostensyearbooks.com and searching for GRACE Christian Raleigh. Can’t remember if you ordered a yearbook? Email bhawks@gracechristian.net and she can check for you! If you plan to order a yearbook, we would greatly appreciate it if your order could be placed by May 20. It will make the distribution much easier if they have all come in through the Jostens website, and we aren’t trying to deal with cash payments through car windows. We have about 60 left in our supply, so order soon.

Also, despite the challenging circumstances of COVID-19, the yearbook signing tradition continues! This May, Jostens is introducing a digital yearbook signing platform that provides students with a fun and interactive experience that results in a printable permanent keepsake. The platform is scheduled to go live on May 15th – we’ll send the link out once it’s live.
