In peace I will lie down and sleep, for you alone, Lord, make me dwell in safety.
– Psalm 4:8

We are committed to providing timely, accurate information. If you notice any error or lack of clarity, please send us a feedback. If you’re getting more than one Weekly Roar to the same inbox (and would like to stop this occurrence), please send us a note here.

Release of Information
Don’t know where you read or saw that in your email? Perhaps you’ve already deleted our precious Weekly Roar or it’s already buried under a ton of emails! Well, good news! You can always access previous Roars here.
As we’re getting ready for the school year to begin, we are working on updating links and forms. One of those forms is the “No Media List.” If you’re new to Grace, the “No Media List” is a list of students who’s families have opted out saying the school does NOT have permission to use their student’s photos on social media, pamphlets, website, etc. Whether you’re opting in or opting out, please take 2 minutes to fill out this form before September 6th, 2019, Media Form. Thank you.
