Crusader Comments – Aug. 14, 2020

Hello fellow Crusaders!  

WELCOME BACK.  I hope you are as excited about the start of a new school year and the opportunity to meet face to face as we are.  We are thankful for what God is doing and going to do for each child and each family through our amazing ECS faculty and staff.


*We currently have over 300 enrolled for this school year.  Praise the Lord.  We do have room in some grades for more students.  Please encourage your friends and family to apply if they are looking for a great school.

*Remember to go online to Headmaster and order your school lunches for the week or the remainder of August.  See our website, the Back to School tab and the Lunch instructions document for more information.

*Our accrediting agency SCACS (South Carolina Association of Christian Schools) will establish our guidelines for full school mandated closures.  This means we could have the same response as the Public School system or we may do something different.  This should give us more flexibility than we had in March – May.

*Fall pictures have been rescheduled for September 1st and 2nd.

*ECS Volleyball and Soccer Alumni games have been CANCELLED due to COVID-19.  They were scheduled for this Saturday, August 15.

GO Crusaders.

Have a great weekend and make sure you are plugged into a local church body (Hebrews 10:24-25).  If you don’t have a local church that you currently attend, we invite you to visit us at Emmanuel Baptist Church at 10:30 for Worship.


ECS Mission Statement – Our mission is to serve in partnership with parents and local churches to provide students with an excellent education taught with Biblical truths. Our desire is that students completing their training at Emmanuel Christian School will be authentic and mature disciples of Jesus Christ, possessing a wide range of knowledge, experiences, and skills that will enrich their lives and provide a good foundation upon which to develop a life of maximum service toward God and man.


Crusader Comments are sent out electronically through email on Thursday afternoons or Friday morning and deal with important information and upcoming events for the next week of school.  You will receive a “Remind text” to remind you to review it as you are making your plans for the upcoming week.
