Our Grace Community School Song and Dance Week Performances!
This summer we continued our tradition of learning a special song and dance routine for Song and Dance Week, and the kids outdid themselves!
We chose a song most of the kids were familiar with, “Can’t Stop the Feeling,” from the Trolls movie. We worked hard every day during the week practicing our dance moves and recorded our videos on Friday. Here are the results — thanks for watching!
School Spirit Week was a big success! We showed our school spirit by wearing something special each day to school. Each of our locations took and posted photos for two of the days. Here are our photos!
Monday: Necktie Day (North Fort Myers, Port Charlotte, Fort Myers)
Tuesday: Hat Day (Lehigh Acres, Skyline, Golden Gate, Naples Park, Cape Coral Miramar)
Wednesday: Sunglasses Day (Bonita Springs, North Fort Myers, Cape Coral Miramar)
Thursday: Slipper Day (Port Charlotte, Skyline, Golden Gate)
Friday: Finale Day (Fort Myers, Lehigh Acres, Bonita Springs, Naples Park
We’ve been here more than 30 years in Southwest Florida. In that time we have helped thousands of students in our nine Grace Community School locations. Each one of these special kids has been part of our community, with parents, grandparents, and relatives. Sometimes we are blessed enough to hear how the Grace Community School experience has impacted our families. We love hearing from our parents and grandparents!
Here’s what a few of them had to say.
What Does the Community Say?
“When my daughter arrived she was loved and welcomed. I had started potty training and she was doing ok. As she started going to Grace, slowly the days grew where she would come home with the same clothes until now it’s been amount 3 months since I’ve brought pampers and my daughter isn’t even 3 years old! She also has come home with a bigger vocabulary, an urgency to read and is counting! They have opened her up and allowed her to feel like she has even more family and that is a good feeling for a mother like myself.” – Natalia L.
Gracie made a music video! Without further ado, here it is: the Grace Community School Song with Gracie and her friends! Enjoy!
About Grace Community School
When it comes to your children, you want no compromises. There are things you can settle on, but childcare should not be one of those things. Since 1986, Grace Community School has been offering the best childhood education that money can buy, for less than the competition! We accept children from infants through age 11 (for after school and summer camp), with full pre-k and kindergarten programs.
Grace Community is no babysitter. Our school days are filled with active, engaging, intensive learning; organized games, music instruction, and more. We are proof positive that a program can be academically advanced, developmentally appropriate, and fun at the same time. Bright children graduate from pre-k at Grace Community School reading at the fifth-grade level. Even average children are reading at the first-grade level, as proven by nationally-recognized standardized tests. This is because our phonics education program is second to none. At Grace Community School, children learn to read as young as three years of age. Students not only learn the letters, but more importantly the sound that goes with each letter, along with a clue word to help them remember. By breaking the alphabet down into smaller sections and providing individualized instruction, children learn quickly and progress through the Reading Circles at their own pace. Because the kids learn at their own pace, they are never pushed too fast or held back; the instruction is always right at the child’s individual level. The result: kids who read! The certificates and books the kids take home keep parents informed of their children’s progress, and the kids love them!
Grace Community School also has advanced math instruction along with a variety of certificates and levels to celebrate our student’s mathematical achievements. Karate, dance, and music classes are available, too! Most importantly, Grace Community School provides daily non-denominational Bible instruction and curriculum-integrated character development study – an uncompromisingly Christian education.
We have kindergarten, too! You can choose Grace Community’s top-notch learning program, which builds upon what your child has learned during pre-k, continues the fantastic Bible instruction, and helps your child to achieve ever-higher levels of academic and developmental success. Just think about how advanced your kindergartener will be after graduating from Grace Community’s pre-k and kindergarten programs. You can continue giving your child the education and care he or she deserves, including Grace Community’s all-important reading program. An uncompromising education shouldn’t be unaffordable. We understand how tough things are in this economy, and we want to help. Grace Community School has a variety of ways to help parents via our financial aid program, multi-child discounts, and referral program.
All this, and a whole lot more: free registration, free breakfast, lunch, snacks, and drinks, free after-school transport from some local public schools, free school newspapers, free weekly photo program, free yearbook, and free twice-annual musical programs. Isn’t all that free stuff wonderful? For that reason we often hear “That sounds too good to be true.” But you can see it for yourself! We invite you to call any of our nine beautiful facilities. We’d love to give you a tour so you can see firsthand how Grace Community School can offer the ultimate in early childhood education for less money than competing daycares. We look forward to serving you and your family!
