Newsletter - September 2023

Principal's Message

Dear GCA Family,

We are off to a great start this year and have a lot to look forward to over the coming months. We are coming into the 2023 - 2024 school year with renewed hope and enthusiasm, and look forward to a school year where we are able to show our very best. I am looking forward to building on what went well last year, having an opportunity to change what did not, and working with our very competent staff to provide an excellent, faith-filled education to our students. I am encouraged by this year’s theme, which is; “Rooted and Growing in Christ.” It is truly my privilege and honor to serve this wonderful school, its talented students, staff, and supportive community.

September is always a time of change for us. We have new students, new classes, new schedules, new teachers, and new routines. Please remember that in placing our trust in the Lord, and working together, we will build the relationships which are essential to growing spiritually, academically, emotionally and physically. As a school community we are committed to excellence in all areas of student development, and will continue to pursue the growth of student leaders who are responsible, life-long learners.

As always, please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.

God Bless,

Mrs. Heather Barber, Principal

Grace Christian Academy
