Summer Reading

By GEDS / June 27, 2018

Summer is the perfect time to read! You may already have seen our summer reading idea lists for our Grace students (if not, scroll down for links); but what’s Head of School Jen Danish reading this summer? “Each summer, I collect a stack of books that I hope to read in the advancement of my work in schools. Now that I am entering my third year as a Head of School with the desire to read texts that speak to all of the ways we can strengthen our work, the wish list has grown even larger! With the biggest challenge of finding the time in my day to read, I have set a new intention this summer. I hope to read every morning for at least an hour before I head to the office. It’s my freshest time of day and it will also allow me to fit in some…

Grace Episcopal Day School Graduation

Graduation 2018

By GEDS / June 12, 2018

Sending our Grade 5 Gryphons out into the world at the end of their final year at Grace is always exciting and emotional. Some of our favorite traditions are the last-day-of-school “Clap Out,” when the whole school lines the halls to celebrate our Grade 5 students as they walk out of the building one last time; our Grade 5 BBQ filled with moving tributes from Mr. LaPietra to each student; and graduation itself, followed by the schoolwide picnic afterwards. We welcome family members, friends, alumni and their parents, our Board, spiritual leaders, and other Friends of Grace to these festivities.

Final Chapel and Grade 5 Prayers

By GEDS / May 31, 2018

Yesterday we celebrated our final chapel of the 2017-2018 school year. We thanked Ms. Sheldon for her dedicated service this year and heard a really interesting story from Reverend Susan about Good Samaritans in today’s world.   We also had the pleasure of hearing our Grade 5 students share their prayers, all of which included personal recollections of their time at Grace and their hopes for our community’s future. We are happy to share their wonderful words with you below. Dear Lord . . .  When I first came to Grace I was in preschool. I stepped into a classroom full of smiling, warm faces and immediately made a friend. It was at that moment that I knew Grace was the place for me. I am thankful for Grace because I’ve made so many friends that I would never have and experienced emotions that I would never have felt. My…
