Morning Tune Up

Each school day at MGCS begins with morning devotions for staff.  Why add anything to an already busy morning?  Because we can’t give to our students something we don’t authentically possess ourselves.  These morning meetings insure that our minds are continually being filled with and shaped by Biblical truth.  In Luke 6:40 Jesus says, “Everyone who is fully trained will be like their teacher.”  In morning devotions we work to make sure we are worthy of imitation.

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.

Grayson's Story

6th grader, Grayson Morris, joined MGCS in 4th grade.  Here, she and her Mom share their journey to MGCS and some of Grayson’s favorite things about her school.
