Welcome to the Grace Parents Association (GPA)! As a parent of a Grace Episcopal Day School student, you are automatically a member of the Grace Parents Association (GPA). The GPA is made up of dedicated parents and teachers working together to support and strengthen our school. Together we share ideas, organize school and family events, and assist in fundraising efforts throughout the year.
There are numerous opportunities for you to volunteer your time and talent. Our fundraisers and events this year include the Annual Fund Drive, Boosterthon Fun Run, Spring Book Fair, Annual Auction, Ice-cream Social, Skate Nights, Chick-Fil-A Nights, Bunco Nights, Valentine’s Day Daddy/Daughter Dance, Grandparent's Day and Teacher Appreciation Day.
We look forward to your participation in these scheduled activities.
We also participate in programs in which companies return a certain percentage of your total purchase directly to our school. Check with Target, Lands End, RPM Automotive, Campbell's Soup Labels, Box Tops, Capri Sun juice boxes, and Woodchuck's Furniture.
Parents are also encouraged to attend the GPA Coffees that will be held on Wednesday, September 19, Monday, December 3, and Wednesday, February 20. We are excited this year to make these meetings a fun time for parents to fellowship, have coffee, and get the latest information on school activities and programs.
Look for more information about these events on the GEDS interactive calendar and in your child's Wednesday folder. Plan to attend our Parent/Faculty Information Nights on August 28th (4th-8th grade) and on August 30 (PK3-3rd grade).
