GRACE: The Best of the Triangle!

Over the last week, GRACE Christian School has been honored by Cary Magazine and Cary Living as one of the best private schools in the area. These awards are voted on by thousands of magazine readers – and school rankings are one of the most voted upon categories.

We are thrilled to see GRACE honored and are thankful for all our community members who voted.

College Connections, Issue 5

Happy New Year! The January issue of the College Connections Newsletter has links to some great articles for all high school students about excelling in their public speaking and learning to be coachable along with information about what a gap year is and how to make the most of it. 

For parents of 9th-11thgrade students, there is an article about how to interpret PSAT scores. If the article leaves you with more questions than answers, I invite you to attend a free PSAT seminar this Sunday, January 12th at NCSU hosted by our friends at Collegewise. This one-hour seminar will help you better decipher and understand what your PSAT score is telling you. 

Already, 39 seniors have received at least one offer of admission from a college they have applied to. NCSU and UNC-Chapel Hill will release there early action decisions at the end of this month and we look forward to celebrating with more students. Seniors, don’t forget to update Naviance with your admissions decisions!

SCREENAGERS

GRACE parents, grandparents and teachers: reserve your spot! On Monday, January 13, GRACE will be showing the documentary “SCREENAGERS” at 6 pm at the Upper Campus. SCREENAGERS addresses the most pervasive parenting issue of our time head-on—depicting teen struggles over social media, video games and internet addiction. (Students will have their own viewing of the film that week, as well.) The film empowers kids to best navigate the digital world and provides practical resources to help them do it. Tickets are free but we request your RSVP by clicking here.

KEEP GRACE HEALTHY!

Parents and students: We are excited to get back to school and embark on the second semester. It is, however, flu season so please, parents, keep your students at home if they show signs of illness or have been diagnosed with the flu. Students, remember that washing hands, sneezing or coughing using a tissue, and not sharing food or drinks can really help to keep the germs at bay. We thank you for your efforts to keep our school family healthy.

AMAZING GRACE, INDEED

Did you see the latest issues of Cary Magazine and Cary Living? GRACE was voted as one of the Triangle’s “Best Private Schools” in both the “Maggy Awards” and “Diamond Awards.” We agree! Go Eagles!

You can help us find the right families for GRACE by writing a review on Facebook, Google or Niche, and letting your friends know about our upcoming Open House Sessions.

SCHOOL SNAPSHOT

Check out some of our teachers feeling festive this Christmas season! Looking good, everyone!

Last week, our GRACE PTF baked treats for our teachers and staff as part of the annual Jingle Jangle! We’d like to thank all our parent volunteers who do so much to care for us.

Parents, see this note below, shared with permission from TK teacher Mrs. Murphy:

Wonderful PTF,

I was excited about today’s cookie exchange going into work and expected the workroom only to have a few plates of yummy treats. Instead, I was surprised and ecstatic to find TWO rooms with huge tables FULL of treats and goodies! I cannot tell you what a blessing this was to me! This is my first year working at GRACE, and little did I know how much this simple act of love and kindness would bless my heart. You may think as you were standing in the kitchen baking that this was not very much…but let me just say it meant the world to me. Your sweet hearts were being the true hands and feet of our Lord and Savior. A servants heart is like no other and I am blessed to have you all in my life. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for the amazing ways today in which you blessed me. This community of parents make me feel loved, valued and KNOWN every single day. 

In Him, Dru Murphy

GRACE’S SCHOOL PROFILE 
Have you ever wondered how colleges compare the high school experience of different applicants? A key part of the process is using each high school’s “profile” to interpret the transcript. The GRACE School Profile is sent with every transcript to every college as a way of assisting in the process of evaluating our students’ academic accomplishments. This document is a great overview of the GRACE mission, culture, and values along with key academic information and we invite all GRACE families to look through it.
