Amazing GRACE | November 3, 2020


GCS T-Shirts and Hoodies

GCS T-Shirts and Hoodies are available for purchase! GRACE's Parent Teacher Fellowship will use all profits collected from shirt sales to support our GRACE community through staff appreciation luncheons, meals/gifts for GRACE parent bereavement and new child celebrations, teacher coffee carts, new family support, Moments With Moms, Donuts for Dads and Family Fellowship events, to name a few.
All shirts ($12) or hooded sweatshirts ($25) will have "GCS" as shown in the letter and color options below. All listed sizes are for unisex shirts. Sizes run small, so if your student is between sizes, please order the larger size for the best fit. 

To order, return the order form that was sent home with your child, or you can place your order online using this form. Please note: You will have to complete an order form for each child! 


Operation Christmas Child

We are excited to announce that the annual tradition of participating in the Samaritan’s Purse Operation Christmas Child will continue this year. Lower Campus students will be sent home with a box on Friday and Upper Campus students can pick theirs up at the front desk. Please bring your filled boxes on November 20th. Click here for details on how to pack a box!

Also, this year we created an online opportunity for families who would prefer to build a shoebox online. Click here to start an online box today!

Is your student missing a shirt? Water bottle? Jacket? Upper Campus has lost items from this year, as well as from the February/March period before the transition to VLE last year. If you can’t find an item, please send your student to look for it in the Lost and Found. Any items not retrieved will be donated on November 13th.
Also: remember to please label the inside of bags, boxes, PE clothes and coats with a Sharpie and we will do the best to get them back to you.
