End of School Blog Roundup

The school year is once again drawing to a close leaving parents wondering how another year has gone by so fast. We wanted to pull together some of our best end-of-the-school-year content to help you with everything from how to prepare your upcoming kindergarten kid to what to buy your kid’s teacher for the end-of-year gift (hint: coffee is always on the list). 

My Kid Isn’t a Grace K!D Anymore…What Do I Do Now?

One of the big things that will happen in Grace K!DS after the school year ends is promotion. Each child will go to a new grade level in school and in Grace K!DS. Our programming only goes up to 4th grade so what happens with those new 5th graders? 


Check out this post written by Lauren Sarter the Junior High Director at our Lindale campus to find out all you need to know about G56. 

Teacher Gift Ideas

If you are anything like me, you dread the end of the school year. I don’t dread it because my kids will be home. I like having them home. I dread it because I never know what to buy for the teachers to thank them for all that they do during the school year. 


I completely draw a blank and can’t think of anything good. This blog post gives four amazing ideas for gifting teachers with something they will actually want. 

Big World Big Dreams

Okay so this post isn’t necessarily about the end of the school year but it can give you some major inspiration when it comes to what to do with your kids this summer. It gives a global perspective to parents wondering how to encourage their kids to step outside of their comfort zone. 

Kindergarten Phase

Whether you will be sending your fifth kindergartener to school or your first this post will help you with what you and your child need to know when entering the realm of “big” school. As a veteran kindergarten mom, I personally still need reminders. So I will be re-reading this post myself as I send my third kindergartener off to school this fall. 


Are you looking for a community or someone to grab coffee with who is in a similar life season? We’d love to connect with you and get to know you better! Below you will find a few people that can’t wait to meet you, shoot us an email so we can make a plan!
