Welcome back to your weekly Two Minute Tuesday! Here is what is happening at GCS:
School Supply Lists are Updated
You can view them on our website or on our Grace Christian School APP. If you don’t already have the app, be sure to download it. It is available on iPhone or Android.
School Supply Shopping
As you shop for your school supplies, don’t forget that there are several stores where you can shop and a portion of what you spend benefits Grace Christian School. A new opportunity to earn money for Grace is to shop at Office Max and mention our school. They will give 5% in credit back to our school just by purchasing qualifying supplies. Also check out all of our other available funding partnerships: https://www.
