Greetings Grace Families,
I trust you have been able to get outside and soak up a bit of this amazing weather the Lord has blessed us with. Spring weather is another reason to look forward with hope to the day we can all be together once again. Yesterday we celebrated our Grace Teachers on Teacher Appreciation Day by placing a sign in their yard with a handwritten note and treat on their doorstep. I am sure you will agree that the teachers are what make Grace Christian School the place we all know and love. I also want to thank all the volunteers who helped pull off this surprise to make the teachers feel honored.
I want you all to be aware of what we have planned for our Class of 2020 and how you can be involved. On Tuesday May 12th we will be having the first ever Senior Drive. This will take place in the main parking lot at GCS. Each senior will have a personal poster hanging outside under the overhang in the main parking lot. From 9:00AM until 11:30AM this will be open for family and friends to come by and look at the collection of posters and also to drop off a card or gift to a senior. Then at noon the Class of 2020 will line up in their cars and drive around the building and out the south parking lot while receiving a “Yeti dog” meal as they depart. This is trying to incorporate a few of the traditions we have for our seniors at the end of each school year. We will hold to the state and muni mandates by doing the senior drive while still helping our seniors celebrate.
Then on Wednesday May 13th we would invite you to watch the GCS Graduation on our livestream or on local TV channel 19 or 35. We will be having a Drive-In ceremony with only the Class of 2020 and their family invited. We would love for you to watch and enjoy this time of honoring our wonderful seniors as we celebrate all that God has done through them with their time here at Grace. Obviously this is something we have never tried before, but it is our hope that the Class of 2020 will feel the support and encouragement from our whole Grace family.
Keep your steadfast focus to finish this school year well. We will be at summer break soon.
Grace Christian School
