Parent Discussion, March 21, Grace Prep 7:00 PM upstairs
We all know how important media choices are in our lives and the lives of our students. Most parents would be surprised at the explicit and obscene content in much of today's popular music, and many don't know what their kids are listening to. As part of his Senior Legacy Project, Austin Yarrish will host a discussion about the influence of music and lyrics. The discussion is designed for parents. Come and learn more about this important topic and support Austin's senior project. Hope to see you there! 
Senior Legacy Presentations
Seniors will present their Senior Legacy Projects on April 3rd-5th. We encourage all junior parents to attend at least one presentation so that they can be ready to guide their student through this experience in their senior year. If you have any questions please email Deb Moyer at  debmoyer2@gmail.com .
All Students:  please wear  business formal  for the two days of these presentations. This will count as your chapel formal days for the month of April.

"My wife and I have been using the Scrip program when our children were at Nittany Christian and have been using it since its inception at Grace Prep. Here is a short list of the benefits that we have found with the program:

- Buying gift cards helps you to budget and plan for your expenses. You know what you are spending and don't fall into the trap of excessive credit card spending.
- Buying gift cards from the numerous companies on Scrip is a great way to give Christmas and birthday presents.
- Planning a major home improvement project or appliance purchase, why not buy Scrip cards for Lowe's, Home Depot or Sears for example?
- For years while our children were attending Nittany Christian and Grace Prep we used the Scrip percentage that was attributed to us the purchaser to help pay for our children's tuition (a big help when you are sending four children through private school).
- Now that are children have all graduated we still purchase Scrip gift cards and donate the Scrip percentage back to the school and receive a tax deduction for the donation. What an easy way to bless the school by simply purchasing gift cards for necessities such as groceries and gas.

Grace and peace,
Bryan and Stacy Spang"
