  1. Classes started on September 16th and as we head in to the 6th week of class, we are glad to report that things are looking exciting for the upcoming year.

  1. This Friday is PICTURE DAY @ GRACE! A LifeTouch photographer will be present to take your student photos from 9:00 to 3:00 in the HSB Gym. We would like all our students (and teachers!) to get their photo taken for the 2016-2017 GRACE yearbook. You may also purchase photo packages direct from LIfeTouch. They do a very professional job! Flyers are available at the HSB on Picture Day! There will be a make up day on December 2nd for those of you that cannot make it this Friday.

  1. H2O Ladies Fellowship has its next meeting on Friday, October 28th and meets in the Family Room from 10:00-11:00.  We call this H2O / Home School Helps & Opportunities.  It is a time to exchange ideas, learn from other home schooling moms, ask questions and just enjoy the community of moms at GRACE.  Anyone is welcome.  The H2O meeting topic is "Homeschooling with Little Ones and/or Big Families".  If you have young children, they may play in the area nearby, so that you don’t have to resort to child care.  Coffee, Tea and muffins are served!

  1. Girls of GRACE Book Club just started on October 14th and will continue to meet the 2nd Friday of each month in Room 2 over the lunch break, from 12:00-12:40.  Join us as we share the books we love with each other!  Get new ideas from your friends for books you will want to read next!  Bring your lunch with you and we’ll eat as we chat about books. The next meeting will be on November 11th.

       Regular Items:

  1. Pizza Lunch happens the first Friday of every month.  You get a slice of pizza and a choice of 3 sides for only $3.00.  Drink, bowl of tossed salad, fresh fruit, dessert, and chips are the items to choose from.  Come and enjoy.  Lunch is served in the gym.  You may eat with your children, or with other parents who may stay for lunch.

  1. BAD WEATHER ALERTS:  We certainly hope we won’t need to worry about this anytime very soon, but in case of bad weather that would necessitate school closing, check your local radio and TV stations for the HSB (Home School Building) to be closed.  This information would be posted early on the morning, usually by 6:30-7:00 a.m.  In the event that Wyoming Public Schools close, the HSB automatically closes for the day, which means we will NOT have classes in the building.
