Grand Rapids Christian Middle School Principal's Corner

One of our GRCS core values is "Connected Through Relationships." This core value is described this way:

"Developing a strong, personal relationship with Christ, as well as intentional, meaningful and respectful relationships with their teachers, other students, their parents, and their church are essential building blocks in a student's education. It is through meaningful relationships, developed in a Christian context, that students mature in their faith and fulfill their God-given potential."

Some of the strongest relationships and faith mentorships that our students have are with their grandparents and other grand friends.  We look forward to celebrating our annual Grand Friends' Day next Friday, October 5!  This is one day in particular where we recognize and celebrate being connected through relationships. It is one of my favorite days of the school year as grandparents and other friends of our students connect and enjoy learning about what our children are learning in our Christian School community.

The schedule for Grand Friends' Day at GRCMS on October 5 will look like this:

11:45 - 12:45 - Luncheon in the Gym for Our Guests
12:45 - 1:00 - Help them Find their Grandkids / Friends
1:00 - 2:00 - Guests visit the school (students with homerooms or grade levels)

If you have any questions about this day, please call the office at 616-574-6300. We look forward to a great day of connecting the generations and of celebrating relationships that God has blessed us with in our grandparents and grand friends!
