#WhatsUpAtGRACE August 14, 2018

Welcome to the first full week of the 2018-2019 school year. Thank you for your patience as we get settled with your students.

The August 14, 2018 WhatsUpAtGRACE newsletter has several opportunities for getting involved at GRACE. Be sure to check out the dates and deadlines in this week’s edition. 

Please take a minute right now to re-link your Harris Teeter Vic card so that every shopping trip you take will raise money for GRACE! Harris Teeter requires you to re-link your card every year – links to their website are included in today’s newsletter.

If you missed a previous edition of the weekly newsletter, they are all posted in GRACE News on the GRACE website. We also encourage you to keep up to date with all future events by consulting the GRACE Calendar.
