Walk With Grace

Students from preschool through 8th grade "Walk With Grace" each year in the annual all-school walkathon.  This year's event is scheduled for Friday, October 5,.

  • All Grace students participate in the Walk, regardless of pledges raised.
  • Our goal is to raise $20,000.
  • This year we will tithe (10% of all money raised) to World Vision, a global Christian humanitarian organization that partners with children, families, and their communities to tackle the causes of poverty and injustice.
  • Students will participate in a “hands-on” service project the week of the event
  • Parents are encouraged to volunteer. Contact Brian Schultz to join the parent volunteer team.
  • PK, JK and SK will be dismissed at 11:30am on October 5. Grades 1–8 will be dismissed at 11:45am, before lunch. (Only children staying for extended care will need a lunch that day.)
  • Prizes will be awarded to top participating classes. Families compete for special prizes, too. (More info in the packet and in Principal Notes during September.)
