Our 5K needs some swag.

We need some GREAT items to give away next week in our SWAG Bags that each runner will receive when they pick up their packet! 

When you click the button, you’ll see names of businesses that have donated coupons, gift cards, or merchandise to us in past years.  Please sign up if you are able to stop by and ask them for a donation!

We can use items to go in SWAG bags or just to hand out. Here are some ideas:

coupons | gift cards | certificates | granola bars | water bottles | fun items (pens, promotional items,  small toys, etc.) | items for prizes

We have about 150 runners and volunteers, so that's the quantity of each item needed. If they are interested in setting up a tent and handing out items, there is a small fee for that and we would LOVE to have them! 

A general flyer about our 5K to give to businesses when asking for donations is HERE.

Parenting Focus for October: Family Devotions

God calls us as parents to prayerfully parent. “Prayerfully Parenting” provides advice and school-wide goals for parents to strive for.

Visit this page to access resources and information about the goal for each month by clicking on the image.

The goal for October is to have a family devotional once a week for the whole month of October. Your kids are never too young or too old to benefit from a devotional time with you!

HealthScreenings w stethoscope.jpg

State-mandated
health screenings

Nov. 6-7

On Tuesday and Wednesday, Nov. 6-7 Metroplex Educational Consultants (M.E.C)  perform state mandated health screenings at GCA. Not all of our students are required to have these screenings this year and some will be required to have only one or two.

If your student is required to have a screening, a form letter will come home with the screening needed highlighted. There is no cost to you and M.E.C. will file the appropriate paperwork with the health department. A staff member will be present during these screenings. Parents are welcome to be present with their students.
