Here's the Scoop!





Thanks to Coldstone Creamery for sponsoring our Fall Family Social.  The ice cream was amazing and we had lots of fun!
Our Trip to the Cathedral
Grace students went to the Episcopal Schools Celebration at St. John's  Cathedral in downtown Jacksonville on Wednesday.   Below are just a few glimpses into their experience.

A Little Shout Out to Ms. Alyson

 Ms. Alyson has been working as an assistant in PK3 since August, but did you know she's actually a former teacher of Grace?  She stopped by school to visit in August and asked if there was anything she could do to help us out.  We sure are lucky to have had her for a couple of months, but today is her last day at Grace.  We are sad to see her go, but she has promised to pop in again to visit soon.
Have you heard?  The Grace Fund is an annual campaign that helps bridge the gap between tuition income and operating expenses of the school.  Efforts are concentrated in the Fall, but gifts are accepted year round.  Parents, grandparents, alumni, Trustees, Vestry members of the church, and friends of Grace are asked to make a tax-deductible donation each year.  Be on the lookout for more information in the upcoming weeks.  Join us in saying YES to Grace!
Sign Up to be a Part Of SERV Club 
(Students Engaged in Right Values) is a service club at Grace that makes crafts for unwed mothers and their children.  They meet on the second Wednesday of each month from 3:15 - 4:30 with Mrs. Porter.  There is a one time fee of $30 for materials for each student participating.  You can pay in the front office, or online by logging into class notes.

Due to the nature of the ministry, this opportunity is extended to girls in grades 5-8, but is limited to the first 12 students who respond.  Please sign up in the front office if your daughter is interested in participating.
