A taste of many cultures
Thanks to all our families that made it out to the Grace Christian Academy annual cultural fair. We had quite the mixture of food, song, poetry, and dance as we experienced the cultures of Ireland, Israel, Papua New Guinea, Australia, United Arab Emirates, and more! Irish potatoes, hummus and pitas, Egg Drop Soup, Arepas, Banana pancakes, and fresh fruit were only a few of countless dishes that helped students and parents alike get a taste of the many different cultures represented at our fair.
Parents, extended family, and friends packed the gym to enjoy a great rendition of "O' Canada" by Preschool 3, Koala Bear poems from Pre-K 4 as they shared about Australia, Irish song and dance performed by Kindergarten, greetings from around the world by 1st grade, a reciting of the 10 commandments from 2nd grade from their studies about Israel, and a performance in Mandarin by 5th/6th grade. As a Lutheran school located in the diverse, multi-cultural city of Chicago, we know how important it is for our students to learn about the many people, places, and cultures all around the world. Cultural Fair was a great way to celebrate various cultures and showcase all of the hard work our students have done over the last several weeks. If you missed any of the fun, please check out our Facebook page for video recordings of these wonderful performances!
We have had a great fall getting back into routine as we welcomed a new teacher to our staff and 23 new students this year. Through the generous support of CLEF (which also helps to provide many of you with financial aid!) we were matched up with some great website designers in order to give our website an updated look. After several months of hard work, we are excited to finally launch the new site!
So, enjoy the new design as we share with you all the great stuff happening at GCA! From academics and sports to teacher information and calendar updates, we hope our new site lets you easily find the latest Grace news along with all the information you need most! And don’t forget to send us all your great pictures so we can proudly share them with the rest of the Grace community!
Whether you are a parent of current student, a parent of a potential new student, one of our outstanding alumni, or part of our team of amazing supporters, we want to thank you for stopping by! Please feel free to look around, send us comments or suggestions, or as always, stop by the office to say hi and tell us what you think. Again, thanks for being part of what God is doing at Grace Christian Academy in Little Village!
