Mrs. Gay teaches Talks about the Beaver Creek Tribe

Mrs. Kellie Gay came and visited with the 4th and 5th grade students about her experience of joining the Beaver Creek Tribe in Lexington, SC.  Mrs. Gay has a great grandmother that was a full-blooded Indian; therefore, with this heritage, her family decided to officially join this Indian Tribe.  

This was a wonderful way to top off learning about Native American Indians.  Thank you so much Kellie for bringing learning to life!!

4th & 5th Grade Indian Projects!

BTS Kick-Off....BLESSED!!

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” 
– Jeremiah 29:11
We are very excited to report that we had a wonderful kick-off on Tuesday evening for our Building To Serve campaign.  We had a great crowd and over $100,000 committed for the gym project in just one day!  
How amazing would it be for the campus of Grace Ministries (Grace Church and Grace School) to look like this one day..... If you were not able to attend, we will be sending our BTS packets out next week.  

Interact Students Help Rotary & KAH

The Bainbridge Rotary Club supports the Kids Against Hunger organization out of Cairo, GA.  On Tuesday, Rotary hosted a meal packing day for our club and invited the GCA and BHS Interact clubs to participate.  Grace was excited to take 8 students, and within two hours they bagged up enough packets to feel over 7,500 meals.  It was a great service day for GCA

Harsimran Singh and Sam McRae
MIkayla Buckhaulter and Jared Duke
McKenzie Brown, Addie Elkins, and Clay Wells
Mrs. Shiver even helped out!

Physical Science Fun

GCA'S Physical Science class was charged with doing a presentation and demonstration of a colloid.  Jeb Smith selected an Oobleck mixture of cornstarch and water.  

The students enjoyed the gooey consistency; however, by adding a strong force with high speed it turns into a solid.  In the picture you see the students enjoying the liquid side of the Oobleck, but then Jeb put the tub on the floor and added his force and speed. 
He was then able to run on it. 
Cool, crazy fun!
