Prepared To Serve

The reason I became a teacher and the kind of teacher I am today can be traced back to my years at MGCS.  My teachers gave me a great professional example to follow: invest personally in a child's success. They also gave me a strong spiritual example to follow by showing me what it looked like to follow Christ.

Eighth Grade Reflections

May and June are bittersweet months at MGCS.  Summertime is in sight but June ushers in too many goodbyes.  When it comes to our 8th grade students, that goodbye is a bit more significant.  Some students have been at MGCS since preschool, some came to us during elementary school and some jumped in for the middle school years.  No matter when they joined us, all of them have found a place in our hearts and in the fabric of our community.  We are proud and so happy for them to take the next step but it’s also sad for us to see them go. It has been our honor to be a part of their lives and we look forward to watching them shine like stars as they leave us for bigger things.

Why Do We Need An Annual Fund?

Last month at Spring Fling, Scott Powell shared his enthusiasm for our school and for the Annual Fund campaign.  Here is how his family came to attend MGCS and why they support the Annual Fund…

We moved to Wilmington nearly 3 years ago with our children Emily (9) and Jacob (6).   After checking out multiple schools, our realtor and fellow MGCS dad , Chris Spivey suggested we check out Myrtle Grove Christian School.  We toured the school and fell in love with it.   We’ve had a great experience here and can’t imagine sending our kids anywhere else. Once enrolled, I began to notice the Annual Fund “asks”.  Walking into the buildings, I saw a large thermometer recording gifts, I received mailings asking for support and, I attended the Spring Fling fundraiser.  I knew I was already paying tuition every month so I wanted to understand why we needed an Annual Fund.

MGCS...A Place To Bloom

We love watching students bloom at MGCS.  The students who arrive in August are very different than the ones who leave in June.  The timid preschooler who walks in clinging to a parent’s hand, strides out confidently  after 8th grade ready for high school. 

It is our pleasure and honor to witness these transformations and to play a role in the lives of our students.  Emma Walsh joined MGCS in 2010.  She had recently moved with her family from California, and then endured a difficult semester at another school.

Why MGCS? The Kitts Family

Our dear family friends, the Treppels (daughters Arianna, Lilli and Gloria) recommended Myrtle Grove Christian School to us.  In the fall of 2007, we enrolled Collin in the 3 year old preschool class.  Our second son, Parker, followed in the fall of 2010. We knew from that year forward that this was the place that we wanted our children to be.
