Earlier this week, I sent an email to our current families about The School of Grace Annual Art Show and Silent Auction. Soon after, I received this response from one of our parents:
“Thanks to you and the staff for all the hard work you have done and will do this week to make the Art Show a success. It is one of my favorite events. I vividly remember touring SoG with my oldest daughter when you were preparing for that year’s art show. I left thinking, “I want my child to be part of this.” I had not felt that way about any facility I had previously toured. It was evident that this was about children and allowing them to grow and thrive in the most developmentally appropriate way possible. Most facilities and programs I visited touted having Smartboards in their classrooms or teaching the entire Kinder curriculum to their students in the pre-k 4/5 year old class. Those things did not impress me, either as a parent or an educator. SoG did and I know I have given my girls the best possible start by sending them to you! I can’t wait for May 1st when I can celebrate with my children. They love sharing their work and the pride and excitement they feel is so evident. A thousand thanks for the extra hours you all spend putting it all together. It is very appreciated. -Ann G.”
On Sunday, we will gather as a preschool family to celebrate children. Come join us at 12:15 for the reception. I am certain that you will see children who have been allowed to grow and thrive, whose creative ideas are encouraged and who are proud to share their work.
