Today is Not that Day!

At 3:30 am this morning, I awoke with this horrible thought:  it is the middle of July!  If you're a mom or dad of school-aged children, then you already know where I'm going with this, and it's probably perfectly clear to you why I awoke in a semi-panic.  Summer is half over.  The summer that literally just began five minutes ago is already half over.  Perhaps this thought was brewing in the back of my mind because of my brief trip into Hobby Lobby yesterday where I saw, that's right, Thanksgiving decorations on display.  How is that even possible?  Honestly, putting up Thanksgiving stuff in July makes me feel anything but thankful.  In fact, it makes me grouchy.

Ready or Not - It's Back to School!

The 2017-2018 school year is just around the corner and Gramercy Christian School is excited to continue our partnership with parents in raising disciples for Christ through Bible-based education!  Thank you for sharing your amazing children with us!   Ready or not, the school year begins on August 28th with a half-day for all students (see attached school calendar).  The school supply list has been emailed and the Spirit Store is up and running and available for you to purchase GCS uniform and athletic gear.  The Spirit Store is closing Sunday, August 13th so don't wait!  Gramercy is welcoming aboard a few new faculty and staff members as well and we are grateful for God's faithful provision and perfect timing in the filling of these positions.  Our new Kindergarten teacher is Andrea Purvis who will be joined by Tammy Gurganus as the Kindergarten permanent T.A. Although we hated to see Mrs. Cornett and Mrs. Pruitt retire, we are looking forward to launching a new Kindergarten d ...
