New Teacher Feature! Kristi Russo is our new Preschool Aide! We are thrilled to have her join our staff and help teach our littles here at GCS! Take a moment to read her bio and welcome her to our Grant Christian School family! “Hello everyone, my name is Kristi Russo. I am thrilled to be helping out in the preschool this year. I have been blessed to be a stay at home mom for the last eight years. All of my children are now in school full time, so I am so excited to get back to working. I really love working with kids. It is such a privilege to work to be able to work along side Mrs. Wells to help build strong Christian foundations with your children. I live in Grant, MI with my husband Lee and our five kids (Zach, Alex, Dylan, Emmett, and Zoey). I am an animal lover. We have four dogs, two cats, a pet tortoise, and chickens. In my free time I love spending time with my family. We love camping, spending time at the lake, fishing, kayaking, and traveling. We are involved in the Grant community and all of our kids are involved in sports. I believe a Christian education is so important especially with all the craziness going on around the world. I’m honored to be here. I can’t wait to meet everyone and I look forward to a great year at Grant Christian School.”
We can't wait to see you at 6 o'clock tonight for our back to school cook off with parent meeting to follow! There will be a bounce house, yummy food, and a time of community! Hope to see all of you there!
New Teacher Feature! We’d like to welcome Mr. Gordon Neville to our staff at GCS! Gordon will be our new Elementary Music and Middle School Band teacher! Take a minute to read his bio and welcome him to Grant Christian School! “Hello to the parents, teachers, and staff at Grant Christian School. My name is Gordon Neville. I am married to Babara and together we have 6 children, 9 grandchildren with number 10 due in December. We are truly excited about that. I got saved in Florida during the Jesus movement in the early 70's and have participated in worship teams in churches there and here in Michigan. I have taught music and band in both public and Christian schools in Broward Co., Florida and here in Kent County. I am former military with active duty in the U.S. Army with the 32nd Air Defence Command. Served in the National Guard with the 13th Army Band and the 126 Army Band which played for Gerald R. Ford's funeral. My interests are: performing music with a fellow Army buddy at local senior retirements centers, running, bee keeping, and Lionel trains. I have always been drawn to music and performing it. It is one of the great gifts that God has given us. It was in existence before the earth was formed and man was created. I enjoy helping young people develope their musical skills so they can share it with others. I am looking forward to meeting many of you and with your help am confident that this will be a successful year at Grant Christian School.”
New Teacher Feature! Makenzie Allen will be teaching Middle School Science & STEM! STEM this year is an all encompassing class of traditional STEM, OE & computers! Take a moment to read her bio and welcome her to Grant Christian School! "Hi everyone! My name is Makenzie and I'm really looking forward to this year and everything the Lord will do through the students and teachers at GCS. From a very young age until now, I have absolutely loved God's creation and I'm excited to share that with students. I truly believe that science brings glory to our Creator and can be such a meaningful topic to study. In my free time I enjoy hiking trails with my dog named Rabbit while trying to identify new plants and animals."

They enjoyed a fun morning with their moms, took their moms to art class and even got to give their moms a beautiful bouquet! There was lots of laughter heard from the preschool room as the moms listened to what their preschooler had to say about them in their “all about my mom” interviews!
