A Message From Dr. Ricks

Parents and Friends,


It's been cold outside, but warm inside from all the learning and fun activities going on. Bulletin boards were initially a bit bare when we came back from school as Christmas was taken down, but new art and writing have gone up. Fourth graders finished a wonderful "Winter Warm-ups" creative writing project, the second graders are busy researching their biographies, and Kindergarten and First Grade students have been working with all the fun activities that go along with celebrating the 100th Day of School!


This Friday is our annual Family Fun Basketball Night. We have lots of information in this week's Weekly Words, so please read on! We would love to have you bring friends who want to have fun and spend time with our great Grace family!


Have a wonderful week,

Dr. Beth J. Ricks

Head of School
