Kindergarten at Grace Community School for $10 Per Week!

Dear Parents and Grandparents,

Each year, we at Grace Community School have the bittersweet task of bidding farewell to our extremely successful Pre-K graduates as they go off to kindergarten, often to the various public schools (including charter schools) in our area. We are sad to see them go, but happy that they have done so well in our program.

But this year, we would like you to reconsider. It is because your children have thrived in our school that we would like to make this special offer available to you:

Kindergarten Tuition at Grace Community School for $10 Per Week!

Why go anywhere else? Here’s how that works: before and after school care at a public school costs $55 per week. Lunch is $10 per week. Breakfast, snacks, and drinks are another $10 value. In addition to before and after care from 6:30 to 6:00 pm, Grace Community School offers extras like our weekly photo program and free annual yearbook. That leaves less than $10 out of Grace Community School’s $85 weekly charge going towards tuition!

There are ways to pay even less for your Grace Community School tuition, like our referral program! Refer a student to any one of our nine locations, and you get $100. It’s that easy. You can even do this for multiple families – there is no limit to the number of referrals you can make. Refer two families, that’s $200. Three families, that’s $300! Don’t your friends, family, and coworkers deserve to know about Grace Community School? The Grace Community School financial aid program is yet another way to get a discount on your child’s tuition each week. More information about these programs can be found in your school’s office and here.

This Grace Community School student is graduating kindergarten tomorrow. She is very proud of her reading skills. We are, too! Do you see why College Can Begin at Two is much more than just a slogan?

It is no secret that children who attend the public school don’t learn to read until late elementary school (if then), while our average Pre-K graduate is reading at least at a first-grade level. Tragically, a student who enters the public school coming from Grace Community School risks throwing away their substantial educational advantage. Even more important, the public school will not continue the moral and character development begun at Grace Community School, especially, that achieved through our Bible instruction program. Indeed, much of what is public schools teach will contradict what your child has learned at Grace Community School, as well as at home and church. The entire public school environment is debilitating to children accustomed to a Christian learning environment.

Even spending just one more year at Grace Community School will be an immeasurable blessing to your child and your family. With a price this low for kindergarten, there is no academic, spiritual or even financial benefit to sending your child off to public school. Won’t you stay a little while longer with us?

Sincerely yours,

Your Family at Grace Community School

A New Whale Song AND New Whale Shirts!

We’re having trouble containing our excitement, because we have two incredible things to share with you.

First, after much ado, we are proud to share with you our brand new Whale Song! Have a listen:

Will you be able to get copies of this song? YES! We will have a CD available for purchase soon. We will let you know when that is available. This song will also be featured in the spring graduation program.

But wait, there’s more! Our new 2016 Whale Shirts are finally done and will be going on sale this week. Here they are:

The 2016 Whale Shirt!
We are very pleased with how the design came out. This will be the dress code shirt for that spring graduation program, Jungle Jive!, but you can wear them now. Ask your Grace Community School location’s office for these shirts.

What do you think about our new song and Whale Shirts? Let us know in the comments!

We Want Your Videos!

We’re having a video contest, and giving away a free week’s tuition! We’ve had hundreds of parents submit written testimonials to us over the years, (If you’d still like to do that, you can find an online form for that here) but people have told us that they feel self-conscious writing something down on paper, or that they feel they don’t have enough to say.

So this time, we’re making it easy. All you need is your phone and 10 seconds. We’ll even give you something to say.

All you need is your phone!

Just record a 10 to 15-second video on your phone of yourself telling us why you or your children love Grace Community School. That’s it! If you can’t think of anything else to say, you can just record yourself saying, “Grace Community School: we’re more than a school, we’re family!” We will judge videos on creativity and enthusiasm, so don’t hold back. Email your video to video@gracecommunityschools.com, and you will be entered to win a free week’s tuition at Grace Community School. Grace Community School will share some of these videos on our Facebook and other social media sites. We will be accepting submissions all month, and choosing a winner after March 31st.

To get you started, here’s one I did:

Again, that email is video@gracecommunityschools.com We hope to see your video soon!

Ahoy!

Pirate Week was a blast!


We love our theme weeks here at Grace Community School almost as much as the kids do. Check out our video:

Celebrating Academic Excellence in Mathematics at Grace Community School

We’ve got something exciting for you!

On this blog we have previously talked about Math Circles, Grace Community School’s unique educational system for teaching math concepts and skills to our students. Because this program has been so successful, we are pleased to announce a new accompaniment to Math Circles: Math Achievers.

Like our Reader Achievers program, Math Achievers celebrate students who reach various milestones in their education. These include learning their shapes and patterns (Level 1), counting to 50 (Level 2), passing all the Pre-K Math Circle levels (Level 3), and counting to 100 (Level 4).

You will see photos of our Math Achievers featured on our social media channels like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

For more information about Grace Community School’s mathematics program, including printable practice materials, visit the Math Instruction page on our website.

Our preschoolers can read! Why not do your friends and coworkers a favor and give them the gift of a Grace Community School education for their kids?
As the Southwest Florida economy recovers and the influx from up north continues, you have an opportunity both to do a good deed and get rewarded for it. You can get that $100 just for telling your coworkers about all the great benefits at Grace Community School. Don’t let your working associates’ children lose out on high reading scores and great Biblical values they can only get at Grace Community School. Have you heard the saying, “What goes around, comes around?” It’s truer than you might think. God rewards those who help His children, and there are much more than just monetary blessings from referring someone to Grace Community School.

2016 Yearbook Advertising

The 2016 Grace Community School yearbook is coming soon!

We would like to let you in on a special opportunity. Each year we give our school family the chance to customize their yearbooks. Many people decide to feature their child, send a special message, or even advertise their business.

Feature your child in the 2016 yearbook or advertise your business! There are lots of ways to make your yearbook special.

These yearbooks are awesome. Our yearbooks are very high quality, better than many public school yearbooks. Even better: each Grace Community School child gets a free yearbook for his or her family. Additional yearbooks will be available for purchase. It’s a great way to remember your child’s years at Grace Community, and all the friends they have made and fun they had. It is also a fantastic place to display your parental pride by taking out an ad congratulating your child on a job well done!

You can place a dedication, feature your child, or place a business advertisement in the upcoming 2016 Grace Community School yearbook for as little as $19. Make a memory that lasts a lifetime. This special opportunity only lasts until March 4, so please hurry!

Make this yearbook the best ever!

Advertising forms are available in your location’s office or at this link!
