It's Homecoming Week!
 

Homecoming may look a little different this year due to COVID-19 and the restrictions and safety measures that are in place to keep our campus safe, but what is important is that the students are able to celebrate together as a community and show their Eagle pride.

To share in this year’s festivities and be a part of the celebration, you’re invited to join us online. All Homecoming activities will be streamed live on Facebook, so be sure to follow us on Facebook. See the schedule below for times and a list of events. 

Note: All events are closed to outside guests with the exception of our alumni award recipients,  Homecoming Court parents, and senior parent parade spectators.

Biblical Worldview Integration

A few weeks ago, Head of School Eric Bradley sent an email to all GRACE teachers requesting they share an example of how they integrated a biblical worldview into their lessons that week. We thought our GRACE community would enjoy reading some of their responses. We plan to share a few responses a week over the next several weeks.
 
"We read the verse 'If I go up into the heavens, you are there. If I make my bed in the depths, you are there.' We discussed how God uses even the earth's deep layers to sustain the rest of creation. I asked them why it was important for us as scientists and Christians to study plate tectonics. They were in awe that God created our planet with such complex processes to sustain life and decided that we can use our knowledge of plate tectonics to help predict volcanic eruptions and keep people safe." - Hannah Eichorst
 
"This week we have been multiplying whole numbers in Math class.  Throughout the year, we have talked about how God created Math. (For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. Colossians 1:16). This week we read Matthew 14:13-21, which is the account of Jesus feeding the five thousand.  This was a great example of how God is the author of multiplication and that 'he is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine.' (Ephesians 3:20)" - Mary Allison Tessneer
 
"In Spanish classes, we are listening to different Spanish songs and choosing our favorites for a bracket for a competition called "Locotubre." It is a competition going on among Spanish students all over the world, so we have been talking about the blessing of creativity that God gives us to be able to create music and videos and how that seeing and/listening to creative things bring our minds back to God." - Paula Welch
