How to Never Miss a Grace Community School Update

Stay informed: Don’t let your child miss any of the fun events at Grace Community School!

We stay busy here. There is always something new coming up: a party, a dress-up day, a new class (like our Art Classes, just started!), a yearbook deadline, a social media contest.

There’s a lot on your plate. Who can remember everything going on? We do our best to keep parents and grandparents informed about fun and/or important news, but we understand that how busy you are. Some of the main ways we keep parents informed are our signs in the office and in the hallway, notes by the sign-in/out computer, and notes on the kids’ papers. But sometimes things still fall by the wayside.

You can like us on Facebook, and follow us on Twitter and Instagram. We are very active on social media. Still, things can get lost in a busy newsfeed. That’s why we have one other way to keep you informed: our email list!

We get it: you’re busy!

Many of you are already signed up for this, but if you’re not (or you want someone else to get updates, too), it’s easy: click here to access the sign-up form, fill out your information, and click “Subscribe to list.” That’s it! You’ll get an opt-in email from MailChimp. Click the link in the email, and you’re all set.

In addition to more frequent updates as needed, once a month we publish the Grace Community School Email Newsletter that recaps what’s been going on with a roundup of useful links, photos, and videos, and information about cool stuff coming up. We just put out our April issue. (You can find it here if you want to get caught up!) Now you’re ready for what’s coming next at Grace Community School. Any questions? Leave a comment below or send us an email at email@gracecommunityschools.com We look forward to keeping you updated!
