Your friends at Grace Academy would like to wish you a glorious, rewarding and productive new year. Around Grace, this time means a chance at a new beginning.
To quote a New England poet and exquisite thinker, Ralph Waldo Emerson:
“You have done what you could—some blunders and absurdities have crept in. Forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day. You shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.”
It is with this sage advice in mind that board members are weighing a host of ideas for the upcoming year. One idea that received unanimous support was creating a newsletter/blog to help build a more cohesive community of friends and families who support the efforts of Grace. We have actually had a blog for many years here and on our MARCH site, but with all the work we have been doing to get Grace up and running, we neglected this wonderful tool. So, here we are again. We hope you enjoy it and please feel free to give us feedback. Our next post will feature more new ideas. Until then-Peace.
WINTER FUN AT GRACE
2017 was filled with bouts of growing pains and many, many good times. One of the best times came right before Christmas when we met for a prayer service, Advent/Christmas party, and an act of service. This season marks the 6th year we have purchased toys, toiletries, and clothing in order to fill the “Sweet Dreams” bags for the children at the Mid-Maine Homeless Shelter in Waterville.
During our Advent/Christmas party, the children also chose a prayer partner from the Christmas tree. Red hearts filled our tree with the names and addresses of priests in our diocese. The children selected a heart from the tree, and pledged to pray for ‘their priest’ throughout the year.
Here are a few pictures of our day and yes, it does feel better to give than to receive.
It’s a wrap!
Naval Engineers from Alion Science in Bath came to talk to us about the SeaPerch program and gauge interest in starting a STEM Program at Grace Academy. STEM Programs focus on creative ways to teach our youth the important skills needed for future STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) related careers.
The evening was a success, and YES it looks like we will be running our very first STEM program! Now to order the equipment…
