GRACE Auction

Next week is the last week to contribute items to the GRACE Auction gift baskets! If you've signed up for an item, you can send it in and your child's homeroom teacher has a basket to collect the items. 
If you haven't signed up to contribute an item yet, we need you! As a family or business, donate to the auction through an auction item, experience, tickets to a sporting event, vacation home time, or other. See your classroom or grade-level sign-up for ideas to donate. (Psst: We have lots of openings for the Professional Sports and Summer Fun baskets if you have connections there for donations!)
On March 22 through March 30, register and start the bidding at the GRACE Auction, which will be open to the entire GCS community. 

GRACE Gala - Buy your tickets!

Join us the evening of March 31st for the GRACE Gala and enjoy live music, a silent auction, and dinner with the GCS community. Purchase tickets here. You aren't going to want to miss it!
