Community Service Day 2019 Recap

Thank you to the many parent volunteers that transported and worked alongside our high school staff and students for our 2019 Community Service Day. Nearly 300 staff, student, and parent volunteers spent last Wednesday working for a variety of community-based ministries as part of our annual service day. Meanwhile, back on campus, 7th grade students packed over 10,000 meals with Rise Against Hunger and helped GRACE cross the 100,000 meals packed threshold. 

Celebrate GRACE 2019 Recap

Thank you to everyone who attended the March 29th Celebrate GRACE Fundraising dinner. We had a wonderful evening of fellowship and were reminded by the staff, student and parent speakers about what a special place GRACE is. 

Thank you to the GRACE Stream Team for recording this event capturing the heartfelt testimony of each of our speakers.

As of April 1st, the combined giving from Celebrate GRACE, the October Annual Fund Drive, and year-end gifts has allowed us to reach 78% of our 2018-2019 annual fund goal of $300,000.  If you can help us reach 100% we encourage you to use this Online Donation Link and make your contribution.

Thank you to GRACE student Emily Hodges for capturing so much fun at the Celebrate GRACE Photo Booth.

 

 

#WhatsUpAtGRACE April 1, 2019

Please take a few minutes to read the April 2 2019 #WhatsUpAtGRACE newsletter; there are a lot of updates! Don’t forget Pajama and Storytime night tonight in the Lower Campus Library!

Thank you to everyone who attended Friday night’s Celebrate GRACE Fundraising Dinner. If you missed the dinner, but still want to make a donation to the GRACE Annual Fund, you can do so via our online donation link

State of GRACE

Before the advent of daily emails and other forms of electronic communication that allow information to flow real-time, the GRACE Head of School and the Board of Trustees conducted an annual “State of GRACE” meeting where the financial status, student accomplishments, and other relevant school information was shared, questions answered, and future plans revealed.

Even with the ability to communicate to the GRACE family daily, we believe there is value in restoring this annual tradition and taking the time to provide a comprehensive picture of the State of GRACE to our families. Rather than asking you to come to an event on campus, we have created this State of GRACE Document for you to review that will give you a broad overview of who we are, where we are, and where we are going.

At the end of the document, you will find a link to an optional registration sheet for a series of Head of School meetings with Mr. Bradley, the purpose of which is to provide opportunities for individuals to share questions or dig more deeply into the topics discussed in the document.
