The Winter Athletic Season is right around the corner! Please read the 2017-2108 Winter Sports Opportunities for important information regarding TRY-OUT DATES, PRACTICE LOCATIONS, and HEAD COACH CONTACTS.
If you did not participate in a fall sport, please make sure that the athletic paperwork is filled out and a current physical is on file.
It’s week two of the 2017-2018 Annual Fund Campaign that started last week and will conclude on October 20th. Gifts to the Annual Fund allows GRACE to invest in critical resources in many areas of school life including academics, athletics, fine arts, safety, security, and technology. Each day during the campaign we will highlight a different aspect of GRACE and how the Annual Fund supports each one.
Please prayerfully consider how you can be a part of this year’s Annual Fund Campaign. Strong parent participation is a key factor in us gaining access to outside foundation funding. Every gift, regardless of the amount, counts toward our goal of 100% participation. Please make your commitment (or let us know about the giving you are already doing) by filling out the 2017-2018 Annual Fund Commitment Card.
Day 7: We are Thankful for Athletics
GRACE has a full slate of athletic opportunities that begin with students in 6th grade. The mission of our athletic program is to provide an atmosphere where student-athletes can develop their physical, mental, social, emotional and spiritual gifts through the avenue of athletic training and competition. Participation in athletics allows instruction in character, integrity, discipline, hard work and leadership. GRACE emphasizes the importance of good sportsmanship as part of our challenge to every student to “live a life worthy of the Lord and please Him in every way, bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God.” (Colossians 1:10)
The Annual Fund has supported GRACE’s growing athletics program in a number of ways, including a complete redesign of the Physical Education space in the Activity Building, upgrades to the weight room, and improvements to the changing rooms.
