Connecting People to God's Grace


Hello Grace Family!

What a wonderful week of God's Grace! A couple of the highlights for me included:

1) My Titan Family joining me for dinner at Culver's on Tuesday! The staff at Culver's was so blown away by the way Titan Nation showed up that they encouraged us to come back anytime! Around $850 was raised for the Class Trip! Thank you for your support!

2) Students in 7th and 8th Grade getting out in the community to Rake a Difference. They cleared leaves and debris from former Grace Principal Mr. Nolte's backyard and current teacher Miss Reimers yard. Thankful that they had this opportunity to serve.

3) PIE had a meeting on Thursday to look at different ways to invest the abundance of blessings from TOTT back into things that will enhance the student experience at Grace. Stay tuned for more details on what those plans entail.

4) I had an opportunity to finish editing the Portraits taken on Grandparents Day. It was awesome to look through these pictures and be reminded of the JOY that fills this special day. Here is a link to all of the Portraits that were taken that day. Feel free to download and share as you see fit. GRANDPARENTS DAY PORTRAIT ALBUM

Next week we have a few activities packed into a few short days.

1) Staff Sumo Wrestling is being planned for Monday at 2PM - this was the reward the students chose as the ultimate prize for reaching their TOTT goals. Parents are welcome to come and spectate if they are so inclined :).

2) The students are singing at the Thanksgiving Worship Service at 12:00 pm on Wednesday next week. They will sing at the beginning of the service and then be dismissed. You are welcome to join us for that special worship service.

3) There is no school Thursday or Friday for Thanksgiving Break. I pray you have a wonderful time reflecting on all of God's blessings with family and friends.

The annual Christmas Shoppe preparations have begun! For those families that are new, every year the ladies of our Church host a thrift shop-style Christmas store for the school kids. First week in December, each class will be given the chance to walk through the store and shop for parents, grandparents, and siblings. The items are strictly donation-based, so if you have things lying around the house (new or gently used) that you haven’t quite gotten into a garage sale or to a donation drop box, please consider bringing them in for the Christmas Shoppe!
