Kindergartners & Seniors Discuss their Futures

Last night, kindergartners graduated. Tonight, it’s the seniors turn at our 15th Commencement Exercises. We wish both groups of students well as they pursue their dreams and seek God’s path for their lives. Recently, we asked a few of our youngest graduates what they wanted to be when they grew up. As it turns out, there are seniors graduating with the same dreams.

 

Summer Reading Olympics

Welcome to the Summer Reading 2018 Olympics! This summer there are TWO challenges!

  1. SUMMER READING: Record the titles of books you read over the summer. Use this Summer Reading Log.
  2. OLYMPICS EVENTS CHALLENGE: Read books in specific genres or themes indicated on the Olympic Event Sheet.

Books can be listed on both the Summer Reading Log AND the Events Challenge sheet. This begins on the last day of school (May 25th). Your Reading Log and Olympics Challenge sheet will be due on Friday, August 17, 2018.

Parents, we’ve compiled this Summer Reading Parent Tips to help you keep your readers engaged over the summer.

 

 

Bundled School Supplies

If your student is entering TK-6th grade for the 2018-2019 school year, you can now purchase your child’s school supplies online.  No more worrying about finding the correct type and brand of product in the store (or multiple stores) as your GRACE PTF has done the homework for you. GRACE now has a storefront through The Write Stuff where you can order exactly what is needed from your child’s supply list.  Your PTF has worked with The Write Stuff to make sure the brand, color and dimensions match what is included on the lower campus supply list for next year.

Upon purchase, kits will be shipped directly to your home. If you purchase by June 30th the kits will ship free of charge — after that date an additional charge of $5.95 will be added.  The last day for ordering supplies through this online store is July 14th.  See the flyer below, check out our storefront via the link above, and spend those days of school supply shopping relaxing by the pool!

The supply lists for next year have been posted on the GRACE website at the bottom of the Summer Work & Supplies page if you would prefer to do the shopping yourself. Note: Only lower campus grades (TK-6th) are included in the online store as students on the upper campus have different enough schedules to make bundling next-to-impossible.

Matific Math Games Results

During the month of February, GRACE fourth grade classes participated in an online math competition, Matific Math Games. The competition encourages a growth mindset in math, sharpens their math skills, challenges students in analytic reasoning and discovery, and improves student math confidence as they earn stars. We are excited to announce that:

  • GRACE Christian School was one of the Top 15 schools in the nation.
  • Mrs. Schaeffer’s class ranked #6 and won a pizza party and $300 of Matific resources.
  • Eli Stewart won a medal for being the top scorer at GRACE!

PTF End of Year Luncheon for Staff and Teachers

A few times a year, GRACE’s PTF organizes a lunch to let our GRACE faculty and staff know how loved and appreciated they are. But it takes parents volunteers to help make these events successful. Our end-of-year luncheon is scheduled for Friday, May 11, 2018.

Please consider signing up to bring food or beverage or volunteering to help set up/tear down to make our end of year faculty/staff appreciation lunch a special time for the people who pour into our children all school year. Please note:

  • Food should be dropped of during morning carpool, already cooked/baked.
  • If at all possible, PLEASE use disposable/throw-away containers/dishes. If you have to use another dish that you want to get back, please mark it with your last name and “upper or lower“ so we can get it back to the correct campus for you to pick up on Monday.

Thank you in advance for your help!
