On Monday, April 29, 2013, forty middle school students from The Christian School of Grace Baptist Church travelled to Lancaster, PA to participate in the ACSI Middle School Fine Arts Festival. Groups and individual students were adjudicated in vocal, instrumental, and visual art categories. Over 1100 students from forty Middle Atlantic Christian school participated.
The Christian School of Grace Baptist Church is pleased to announce the following results. The small vocal ensemble called The Grace Notes, under the direction of Mrs. Carol Garman, received the highest score in their group. Additionally, they were one of three performances chosen to present at the awards program.

The school choir and Boys’ Ensemble also earned a score of Excellent for their performances.
