From the desk of Dr. Ricks

Parents and Friends,

I hope that you are having a great weekend and are ready to get back to our routines. Standardized testing went very well last week. I know that the students are glad to be done, but I think they enjoyed the no homework nights of testing!

This week brings the 4th grade Medieval Feast and Middle School field trips. The 5th grade is practicing for their play, and overall, spirits are high as we work our way towards summer.

Please note that due to the inability to fire the students' pottery because of a faulty kiln, we have rescheduled our art show to Monday, May 14. We will send the updated information tomorrow so that you can make plans to attend the art show with your child and see the amazing things that Grace students are accomplishing with Ms. Ginny in our art space!

Here we GROW again!!!


Our Librarian, Mrs. Dee and her husband, Mr. Tommy built and donated garden boxes to help our students learn about planting and growing. We are excited to see what the Kindergarten classes planted and eat the "fruits" of their labor.
