This Year’s Christmas Program Will Be Spectacular!
It’s that time of year again: Christmas! We love Christmas, and one of the reasons we love it so much is because of our Christmas programs. It’s a Grace Community School tradition!
Each Christmas we celebrate with a special performance by our students. They work really hard putting together and practicing for these shows.
Our Christmas programs are musicals: our students will perform a selection of Christmas songs. We’ve got costumes, dancing, and something special from our Dance Class (scroll down for more on that).
Here’s what you need to know!

Grace Community School Dance Class Recital
This is big! The Christmas Spectacular! program will feature a dance recital by the Grace Community School Dance Class. Our Dance Class will have special outfits (boy and girl versions) and their own song to show off their dance moves.
👉If you want your child to participate in the dance recital, you will need to sign up for Dance Class as soon as possible so they will have time to practice.
New Christmas Whale Shirt
Coming soon! Dress code for the Christmas Spectacular! 2017 program will be this new Whale Shirt along with dark-colored bottoms.

New Video Stuff!
Instead of DVD’s, we will be doing digital distribution of this year’s Christmas program videos.
You’ll be able to “pre-order” program video with just your email address right from the Grace Community School App. Once you’ve put in your information, you’ll get the link to the video and photos emailed directly to you.
We have a new camera for onstage close-up video of the programs, so expect this year’s program videos to be even better than previous shows!
