We’ve got spirit yes we do, we’ve got spirit, how about YOU!?! Make plans to join us for GRACE Homecoming, proudly presented by Dr. Kelly Ritter Orthodontics. Homecoming is a great time to come together with the GRACE family - past and present - and celebrate all the wonderful things God has done in the life of the school.
We kick off GRACE Homecoming, presented by Dr. Kelly Ritter Orthodontics, with Spirit Week - from October 4th - 8th. Our students will dress in a theme for each day.
Monday, October 4: Pajama Day
Tuesday, October 5: Neon Day
Wednesday, October 6: Jersey Day
Thursday, October 7: Red, White and Blue Day (No political promotions)
Friday, October 8: GRACE Day
Volunteers - Make it a point to help out and serve anywhere from 30 minutes up to 2 hours. All volunteer names will go in a drawing for a GCS tailgate swag pack full of GCS logo gear. Sign up to volunteer here.
Homecoming T-shirts - T-shirts will be on sale at school for $20 each the week of homecoming on a first-come, first-served basis. Quantities are limited to stock on hand for youth and adult sizes.
Parade - On Friday, October 8th at 12:45-1:00 p.m., we’ll be hosting our Homecoming Parade at the Lower Campus parking lot. High school students will create movie-themed floats, middle school students will walk with their classmates, and the TK-5th grade students will cheer on the Homecoming Court as they pass by in their shiny convertible cars.
Tailgate Bash and Football Game - Lastly, we’ll culminate our week’s worth of fun during our Homecoming Tailgate and Varsity Football game against St. David’s. The tailgate begins at 5:30 p.m. and will include two large inflatables, carnival games, face painting and balloon artists along with a BYOT (tents, tables, and chairs) tailgate celebration. The alumni awards will begin prior to kickoff at 6:45 p.m. and the football game kicks off at 7 p.m. At halftime of the game, we will be presenting the coronation of our Homecoming Court.
Parking & Shuttle Service - Parking at the Athletic Field is reserved by parking pass only. Drop off and pick up is allowed starting at 5:00 p.m. until the end of the game. Shuttle service is available at the Lower Campus portico area and overflow at the Upper Campus student lot area (see the shuttle map for details).
Homecoming Dance “Night of Hollywood” -The dance will be held October 9th from 7:00-11:00 p.m. at the Upper Campus Student Center. Come dance the night away at an outdoor, open-air vintage Hollywood-style set high school dance. Tickets are $30 and can be purchased here.
