Dear Elementary Parents,
We are thrilled to welcome your family to Grace Christian School. The 2011-2012 learning adventure begins on August 17. As a school, we are very honored to partner with you and your church in the process of educating your child.
The High School Student Council members met this spring to discuss ideas for a theme for the coming school year. We were so blessed with how God led these discussions and the amount of prayer that was involved in the process. For the 2011-2012 school year they have chosen “R.A.D.I.C.A.L. Love” as our school theme.
II Timothy 2:22 teaches us to “…flee the evil desires of youth, and pursue righteousness, faith, love and peace, along with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart.” What a wonderful truth to teach our children! We are blessed to be indwelt by, loved and cared for by our loving, heavenly Father, the God of the universe. We are free to stand strong in Him and pursue righteousness through every experience of life. What a blessing!

We are excited to welcome Mrs. Kim Metzger to our elementary faculty. Mrs. Metzger will be teaching our Half Day Kindergarten class this year. You may remember that she has three children here at Grace and substituted in multiple classrooms last year. Returning to Elementary is Mrs. Stacy Christensen who will be teaching fifth grade with Mrs. MacDonald. We are very excited to have Mrs. Christensen back as part of the Elementary faculty. Miss Stephanie Wright will be teaching the full-day Kindergarten with Mrs. Pauls and lastly, Mrs. Greta Gionet will be the Elementary Instructional Support Teacher. I am very excited about the coming school year and the incredible opportunities that God has placed before us at this time.
As we look to the coming year, we desire to continue strengthening the link between home and school, working with you to meet the spiritual, academic, and physical needs of our students. In an effort to ensure that your child is placed in an educationally balanced classroom which best meets his/her needs, our faculty has prayerfully and cooperatively prepared classroom lists for the upcoming school year. They have based their decisions on the balanced mix of the following criteria: academic issues, behavioral and social issues, and male/female balance. God has blessed us with a faculty who deeply love our Lord. They are committed to offering the best education possible for your child. Class lists will be posted the evening of the Back 2 School Ice Cream Social.
Please note the following special events which have been planned to welcome and inform our Grace family:
August 11 Back 2 School Ice Cream Social
August 15 New Parent Orientation – 7:00 p.m.
Aug. 17 – 19 Kindergarten Conferences by appointment

I am looking forward to seeing each one of you at the Back 2 School Ice Cream Social on August 11. What a great way to get back into the swing of the school year!
A great strength of our school is the prayer and support of our parents. Thank you for your decision to partner with us for the coming school year. I look forward to getting to know you and your family even better.
