Hello Grace Academy Families,

Summer Reading
Students, log your reading hours this summer and receive a prize when we return to school in August!

Used Book Sale
Parents/students are responsible for purchasing textbooks for classes. Please see the course descriptions on our website for needed textbooks. In an effort to make book buying/selling easier for our current and new families, we are holding a “book store” from June 19-August 17 on campus. If you have Grace Academy used books that you would like to sell to other Grace families, please complete the following steps:

Check the book list on our website to make sure the book you own is still being used for next school years classes. Label EACH book on the spine with the name of the class it was used for, including grade level, how much you are selling it for and who to make the check payable to.

Example: 6-8 Spanish I, cost of book, your name

All checks must be made out directly to the seller. Checks will be dropped off in the office and the office will contact you once you have sold books.

Drop off your books anytime M-Th from 9:00-3:00 and place in the K-5 cubbie area on the grade level and subject-specific shelves beginning June 19.

If you have books to buy, come shop, write an individual check for each book purchased and drop off the checks at the welcome desk. No cash or credit cards please.

Only Grace Academy books can be bought or sold, no other books please.

Girls on the Run Coaches Needed for Fall 2017 
We need you! Girls on the Run is a chance to get outside, laugh, jump and cheer. Mostly importantly, it’s a chance for you to help girls realize their full potential. You do not need to be a runner to coach, just have a passion for promoting healthy lifestyle and self-esteem for young girls! Practices are 2 days a week for little over one hour. Training, curriculum and materials provided and coaches daughters’ are guaranteed a spot. Fall 2017 season will start the week of September 18 and end with the GingerSnap 5k on Saturday, December 2. If interested or if you have questions, please contact Bonnie Grote, GOTR Union Council Director at: bonnie@girlsontherununion.org
