Ms. Meggs' Message

  • principal of grace king

     

    The past few months have brought us challenges in these unprecedented times.

    Although the COVID-19 pandemic may have closed down our physical campus, Grace King administration, faculty and staff believed that learning is never optional. We movedforward creating Google classrooms and used Zoom to continue to keep our students academically engaged and connected. It has been tough for all in our school wide community, and we'd like to thank everyone for their patience and their commitment. 

    While we didn't expect these times, our commitment to celebrate the GK class of 2020 never wavered. Thank you to my faculty and staff who made certain that seniors could close out the year with fanfare at our inaugural senior parade. Traditions are made as we embrace new circumstances. 

    The 4A's, Attendance, Attitude, Attentiveness and Accountability, continue to guide our actions as we look ahead to our future at Grace King. We're looking forward to welcoming the Class of 2024 to our Freshman Academy and welcoming back our rising seniors, juniors and sophomores for what I'm sure will be a year filled with new joys.

    Full of Irish Pride,

    Ms. Sharon Meggs-Hamilton

    Principal
