Finding the right school for your child is a very personal decision. We know that the foundation of learning starts at home, and pours over into the school and teachers who nurture and teach our children.
As we began to look for the right school for our daughter, we struggled to find a school that was willing to see her as a “whole child.” We knew that she was so much more than a test score. As a momma (and an educator) my heart was truly heavy. I knew we had to find the school that would see her as the funny, smart and loving child she is. Through this process, we were directed to Grace Episcopal Day School. The moment we stepped on the campus we felt a sense of “community.” Grace truly saw our daughter and loved her. We knew we found our home.
The Grace Fund is conducted annually to financially support the needs of this school we all love. This fund helps bridge the “gap” between tuition revenue and the actual cost of educating each student. Additionally, the Grace Fund helps regulate the cost of tuition, which is necessary for remaining competitive among the top independent preschool, elementary, and middle schools.
Our goal this year is to raise $40,000 with 100% participation from our families, staff, Vestry, and Trustees. If you have not had the opportunity to give to the Grace Fund before, now is the perfect time. If you have a tradition of giving to Grace, thank you, and we hope you will be able to maintain or increase the amount of your previous contributions.
We are grateful for Grace and all they have to offer. Please say yes to Grace with us and consider giving a gift from your heart. With your help, we look forward to meeting and exceeding our goal.
