May 2nd – 6th

Teacher Appreciation Week

Let’s show our teachers just how much we love and care for them!

You may do this in so many ways — draw a picture, write a letter, give them a big hug, buy a small gift, or just say “THANK YOU”! This will make your teacher feel SO special.

Thanks for all you do — we appreciate all our GCS families!

Get Yours Before They’re Gone!

Elementary Professional Development

A key trait of a great teacher is their commitment to continually learn. Even as the school year comes to a close, GCS Elementary teachers began a 45-hour course that will grow and sharpen their skills in teaching reading. This hybrid online/facilitated course provides our teachers a collaborative opportunity to connect course content to classroom instruction.

High School Leadership Class

Students in Mrs. Bishop’s Leadership class got some hands-on business and marketing experience last week. Helping out the front office, students counted, sorted, and filled spirit wear orders as part of their merchandising unit. These students learned that it takes multiple counts to verify correct numbers, and fill the order accurately, with multiple quality control checks.

As they were filling orders, the students learned the hard way that attention to detail is of the utmost importance. They got to the last 3 orders and realized that they had incorrectly filled some orders and had to start back at the beginning. “It was really frustrating,” said sophomore Kinley Scott. “We thought we were working so well and trying to figure out where our error was, and having to work backwards was really time consuming.”

LSP End-of-the-Year Meetings

Parents of students that are part of the Learning Support Program (LSP) should anticipate an end-of-the-year meeting to review progress, develop and/or revise goals, and set projections for next year. These meetings are a great opportunity to highlight the student’s individual growth and plan for future needs. Collaboration with parents also supports the framework for student success.

Any questions about meetings can either be directed to any of the Learning Support Program teachers or our LSP director, Lauren Morrison at

We have two new designs of spirit wear sweatshirts available in limited quantities available both online and in our school office. We also have recently restocked both our t-shirts and sweatshirts recently so as the weather gets hotter and the air conditioning gets colder, we have got you covered! You can either shop in the school office daily from 7:30 am – 4:00 pm or order online!

Visit the Grace Shop

We are now a CASHLESS venue. For additional convenience, we have a system in place for your students to be able to have their FACTS account billed. In addition to this option, students can also purchase GRACE Gift Cards from the Concession Stand or Risen Grounds Coffee Shop. 

Host a GCS International Student

Is your family interested in hosting one of our international students for the upcoming 2022/2023 school year?

  • Host families provide a room, meals, transportation and lots of love and support!
  • Students have their own spending money and health insurance.
  • Learn about another country as students share his/her culture with your family.
  • Students are high school students (9th-12th grade).

 Thank You to Everyone in Attendance at
our 1st Annual Night of Champions

Honoring the Past, Cultivating the Current & Forecasting for the Future

Night of Champions


The 1st Annual Night of Champions Legacy Funding Event was a clear testament that God is forming a cloud of witnesses for Grace Christian School. We couldn’t be more inspired. Lee County and beyond is speaking loud and clear — quality Christian education is a priority for families today and for future generations.

Honoring the Past

Grace Christian School is what it is today because of the tireless service and selfless investments of previous generations. This year, we have established the Allan Delano Strickland Service Award and the Samuel J Wornam III Legacy Award in honor of two individuals who have made lasting impacts on our school and our students.

The first recipient of the Allan Delano Strickland Service Award went to the honoree of whom the award is named, Allan Strickland.


The Samuel J Wornom III Legacy Award was established in honor and memory of Sam Wornom, and an award gift was presented to his wife, Sandra and daughters Lesley and Laurie. The first recipients of this award were Jeff & Beth Yow and Charlie & Debbie Welborn.

Cultivating the Current

Thank you to the 250 in attendance, and to our event sponsors who provided for the event costs. The generous support of our sponsors allowed for all funds raised to go directly to the mission of Grace Christian School.

One of the many evening highlights was hearing directly from students and recent graduates about how GCS has impacted their lives. The stories undoubtedly stirred feelings of gratitude among the GCS parents in the audience. Those parents were then asked to think back to the day they decided to enroll their children at Grace and imagine if they had been told, “Sorry, there’s no room.”

That’s what many parents desiring quality Christian education for their children are facing today. It’s up to us to provide for the next generation.

Thank You to Our Impact Sponsors

  • Comfort First Heating & Cooling
  • Myres Animal Hospital

Forecasting for the Future

God is growing Lee County and has placed the blessing and responsibility on Grace Christian School to provide quality Christian education for the families moving here. To do that, GCS will be embarking on capital campaign for a major expansion. Please watch for details and prayerfully consider how you can invest in our mission.
