The 2018-19 new school year festivities started off on August 9 with Back to Grace night. The GPA family celebrated being back together, saw the cheer squad perform, and took time to pray for a couple members of the family who are battling cancer. The rainy weather forced kids, big and little, to play Knockerball inside, but it didn’t deter the fun!
On Wednesday, every secondary student arrived at school to find a handwritten note of encouragement on his or her locker! Friday morning was an all-school assembly which concluded with several epic tug-of-war battles – first between the freshmen and seniors, and then the sophomores and juniors. The seniors claimed the overall student championship with a win over the juniors. Their victory put them in the battle for ultimate bragging rights against the GPA teachers and staff. Even outnumbered by the faculty, the seniors took home the 2018 GPA Tug of War title. All in all, a great way to begin the school year!
