GCA NEWSLETTER - DECEMBER 2023
Greetings GCA Family,
As December approaches, we wanted to take a moment to extend warm wishes and share some thoughts with you during this special time of year. The holiday season is a time for reflection, gratitude, and spreading joy, and we are grateful to have you as part of our Christian school community. First and foremost, we want to express our appreciation for your ongoing support and commitment to our school's mission and values. Your dedication to providing your children with a Christ-centered education is truly inspiring, and we are honored to be entrusted with their growth and development.
December is a month filled with celebrations, traditions, and opportunities for spiritual growth. It's a time to remember the birth of Jesus Christ and the message of hope and love that His arrival brought to the world. We encourage you to take this time to reflect on the true meaning of Christmas and share its significance with your children. As a Christian school, we strive to create an environment where students can learn, grow, and deepen their faith. We believe that education is not only about academic excellence but also about nurturing the whole person, including their spiritual well-being. We are committed to providing a supportive and caring community where students can develop their relationship with God and embrace His teachings.
During this holiday season, we encourage you to engage in meaningful conversations with your children about the importance of faith, giving, and serving others. Together, let's emphasize the values of compassion, kindness, and generosity that Jesus taught us. Whether it's through participating in charitable activities, reaching out to those in need, or simply showing love to one another, let's make a positive impact on those around us. We also want to remind you of the importance of self-care during this busy time. Take moments to pause, reflect, and find peace in the midst of the holiday rush. Create opportunities for your family to come together, pray, and celebrate as you build cherished memories that will last a lifetime.
As we approach the end of the year, we want to express our heartfelt gratitude for your continued partnership and support. Your involvement in your child's education is invaluable, and we are grateful for the privilege to be a part of their journey. May this December be filled with joy, love, and blessings for you and your loved ones.
Wishing you a Merry Christmas and a blessed New Year!
With warmest regards,
Grace Christian Academy

CAN YOU HELP A FAMILY IN NEED THIS CHRISTMAS?
This year GCA is partnering with a Head Start Program in Callahan to provide Christmas Gifts to children in need. We are participating in the giving tree program to provide gifts to 25 children who are from 15 months old to 5 years old.
If you would like to help a child in need, please follow the link below to choose which child you would like to help. Please purchase 3 or more gifts for the child, wrap the gifts, add a tag with the child's name and bring them to the school by 9:00 AM, Friday, 12/08/23.
Please be sure to include your child in this process so they can share in the joy of giving.
We would love to see each child on the list receive gifts this Christmas.
Thank you in advance for your participation.
Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven. Matthew 5:16
