You may bring your clean uniform items to the office on Monday, August 8th (8 am – 3 pm).  Each item should be clearly marked with your family name and the price you are requesting (an envelope pinned to the item or a label/tag stuck to the item).

Send us your Grace stories! Teresa Green's story: I chose OLGCA for my 2 boys as I went to St Anne's and graduated in 1999. Grace has great ethics and a commitment to encouraging the kids to be the best they can become. Teachers are available to help the children and also help the parents. By the end of the year, it's not just a class, but you turn into family. Grace is very affordable, and you are able to tell GRACE children apart from others due to them being respectful and helping others. GRACE becomes your family ❤

Send us your Grace stories! Jenna Aguilera's story: { My GRACE story } When it was time to find a preschool for Wyatt, let’s just say it was incredibly stressful being a household of two working parents. Before having kids we moved to Geneseo for the location and the fact that it was a good school district for our future children.. Fast forward to when the time came and I was left with only half day preschool options in Geneseo and I found myself scrambling to figure something out, especially with two sets of working grandparents, our long work days, and NONE of our family lives in Geneseo. One day at work it was suggested by a very special patient to check out Our Lady of Grace (thank you 🙏🏻). Although we identify as Catholics, Catholic school was never a part of our plan. I never attended Catholic school and only knew the public school system. My goodness, how my eyes were opened to something so amazing! GRACE not only had full day preschool, but preschoolers were allowed to attend the BEFORE AND AFTER care… this was truly a Godsend for our working family, and so many other working families…. But there’s more. The blessings this school has provided our family go beyond convenience and my heart has been completely captured by this school and all who are a part of it. The quality of my children’s education is nothing short of spectacular. Wyatt is in his third year at GRACE and I can’t even begin to put into words the growth I have seen in him in such a short amount of time. He is thriving academically and in his confidence. Lucy is in her first year of preschool and she loves her teacher so much that she tells me she misses her on the weekends. Beyond academics, GRACE teaches it’s students about the importance of holding themselves accountable for their own education and actions, being kind and respectful, as well as serving others. I can’t really ask for much more. Let’s be real, our schools spend more time with our kids than we do during the week, so for me it has been so comforting to know they are at a safe school that is continuing what I (try) to teach at home and can pick up where I may be failing. Why am I rambling on today about my kid’s school? Well, if you have been following the news since last Friday you may have seen that for about three days we were facing the reality of our school closing after this year. We still haven’t been given clear answers as to why, but we have been given a chance again and will now NOT be closing after this year. We now have to put in the work to make sure this school stays for good. I may live in Geneseo but my heart will always be in East Moline, and this school is such a blessing for our community. I want to see my hometown continue to thrive and that means keeping this school around. If you have identified with our struggle of being working parents, want quality education, and/or want Catholic education.. please reach out to me and I can give you more information about all that GRACE has to offer. I also ask anyone who believes in Catholic education as an option (especially in East Moline) to support GRACE in this upcoming year. We have a long road ahead of us, but I believe that if we come together as a community, we can make great things happen! GRACE was never our plan, but that’s the thing about life… it writes itself sometimes. I’m so thankful for this surprise chapter in our lives. #IBelieveInGrace
