Grace Episcopal Day School
Please mark your calendar for the Grace Family Picnic. Bring a picnic blanket and/or your own chairs. This event will be similar to the ice cream socials of the past. We'll have hot dogs, chips, and ice cream available, or you can bring your own picnic. This is intended to be a fun, low key way to socialize outside with other Grace families.

Amazing Artwork
Congratulations to Ivan from Mrs. Hite's Kindergarten class! After learning about the famous author and illustrator, Eric Carle, students drew a beautiful butterfly similar tot he one in The Very Hungry Caterpillar. Not only did they read the story, they practiced sequencing, patterns, and mixing colors. Beautiful work, Ivan!
Congratulations to our new Artists of the Week from Mrs. Hines' 4th grade class, Mateo and Hope. They each used a crayon resist technique to create a beautiful picture of two koi fish swimming in a pond. These pictures are drawn from a birds eye view and salt was used to add texture to the water.
