Foundations Academy (Grades 1-3)

Purpose Statement: The Foundations Academy (grades 1-3) strives to develop a lifetime love of learning by providing a firm foundation spiritually, academically, emotionally, and socially from which students can confidently impact their world for Christ.

Theme verse: Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it. Proverbs 22:6

March_9_Chapel_11_427x640.jpgGreenbrier Christian Academy is proud to announce first grader Anaya Ellick has won the Nicholas Maxim Special Award for Excellence in Manuscript Penmanship! “Anaya is a remarkable young lady. She does not let anything get in the way of doing what she has set out to do,” said Anaya's Principal, Tracy Cox. “She is a hard worker and has some of the best handwriting in her class. Her determination is an inspiration to all of us at GCA.” Anaya was born without hands and does not use prosthetics. In order to write, she holds a pencil between her two arms and stands at her desk to get the proper angle needed for writing.

The National Handwriting Contest is an annual event sponsored by Zaner-Bloser to promote legible handwriting. To be eligible for the special needs category and the Nicholas Maxim Award, a student must have a cognitive delay, or an intellectual, physical, or developmental disability. For more information, please visit Zaner-Bloser's website here.

Representatives from Zaner-Bloser recognized Anaya’s accomplishment during a special chapel on Wednesday, May 4th.
