Save the date! On October 17 from 5:30 – 7:30 pm, all Grace Christian School and Grace Baptist Church families are welcome to join us for our fall potluck supper. Families that attend should bring a dish to share that will feed 6 – 8 people. If your last name begins with A – L, we ask that you bring a dessert or salad to share. If your last name begins with M – Z, please bring a main dish to share. GCS will supply the drinks and fun! There will ice-breaker games and prizes for getting to know the most new friends.

Grace Christian School has dedicated an entire week to celebrating a love for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.  Throughout the week of October 15th-19th, students in K-12 will participate in several activities to enrich their learning in these four disciplines.  Please watch for a full schedule in the coming weeks.
