PRIMARY/ELEMENTARY ACTIVITIES

Living History Night – Students bring history to life through their presentations. Younger students work on group presentations while the older grades make live presentations of those characters as “living wax figures” that come to life.

Christmas Musical Play – Students in the music classes work on and present a grand performance in which the students sing and speak their lines to communicate the true meaning of Christmas.

Grandparents Day – Our students eagerly look forward to the day when grandparents come to Grace Prep. Students make group presentations and then the grandparents join the students in their classroom.

Daddy Daughter Dance – While the girls look beautiful in their pretty dresses and their hair done so wonderfully, the beauty that really lasts is a daughter experiencing a special evening with her dad, grandfather, or uncle. The dinner and dance is like “prom” to these young girls.
