Grace Weekly Bulletin-August 17, 2017

All School News…


Important Announcement from the Financial Office:

It is very Important that ALL school families set up their FACTS School bill account this week.  Because Federal law mandates that there is a 10 day window to draft your account, you are still able to choose the 5th for a draft date if you complete it by  Friday, August 18 .  After  Friday , you will have to choose the 20th.  Of course, this also may effect the amount of months in your payment plan.  Please call Lisa Payton in the Financial Office with any questions or needs in completing this very important process.

My Hot Lunchbox

If you happened to miss the My Hot Lunchbox information at the Back to School Expo, here are the instructions on how to set up an account and the menu for the month.  If you have any questions, please contact the office of the Upper or Lower School.

From A Great-Grandmother...To You...

I can't honestly say that I was particularly looking forward to it...

...even though the Parent Expo is very important to our school. After all these years, I knew very well how hot it was going to be in our gym, even with the giant fan turning in the ceiling.

But all that changed with my second conversation of the event.
