A Message From Dr. Ricks

Parents and Friends,

Welcome back to school after what I hope was a wonderful and exciting winter break spent with family and friends. The second half of school year is well underway with staff and students once again actively engaged in teaching and learning. We are excited about the educational challenges that lay ahead of us and know you will continue to assist us in our efforts to make Grace Episcopal School the best it can possibly be. Mark your calendars for Family Basketball Night which will be held on Friday, January 22. This is always a great evening of fun, food, and prizes. It is also a time of "homecoming" when alumni visit and reconnect with teachers and friends. I am looking forward to seeing everyone there!
