Dear Future Grace School Gators,
This Thanksgiving, we wanted to take a moment to pause and say thank you – to you, and to all of the people who make Grace School what it is…
to our teachers who love our students unconditionally and who are truly passionate about educating and nurturing the hearts and minds of young children.
to the school administration for the countless hours of work, the incredible vision they set forth and the mission they relentlessly pursue to make sure our students have everything they need to be successful.
to the Grace School parents who remain flexible, adaptable and supportive during a truly unprecedented school year.
to our amazing students who have taken all of the changes to our daily routine with a smile and continue to work hard every single day.
to the custodial staff who arrive before 6 a.m. and work until 6 p.m. to make sure our campus is clean and safe for our students and staff.
to our chefs, who stand over hot flames, preparing healthy meals for our students.
to our prospective families for seeking us. You can inquire at any school in Houston, but you chose us – the Grace School community – and for that, we are truly grateful.
We wish you a Happy Thanksgiving and a joyous holiday season.

“From our perspective, we are extremely impressed with the policies, procedures and ACTIONS taken by the school to make sure that everything possible is being done to keep our children, the teachers, and the staff safe from the coronavirus. The communication on the topic has been very effective as well. It is like you all have thought of every outcome and have a PLAN for it! Of course ideas are a dime a dozen – so what was even more impressive was the flawless way in which the school, staff, and teachers executed on the plan. I am not sure of what issues yall may have had on that fronts (if at all), but we saw none of it! I have spoken to friends with kids in other schools (private and public) and these schools either don’t have the resources to do what Grace has been able to do or have done the bare minimum (ignoring the science, in my opinion) and decided to roll the dice and reopen with minimum precautions. I am grateful that Grace has decided to take a different path when handling this (hopefully) once in a lifetime pandemic.” – New Fifth Grade parent
