Crusader Comments – March 14-18

Hello fellow Crusaders!  

Lost and Found – We have quite the collection of hoodies and coats in the school office. If your child has lost one, come by or call the school office and claim your coat or hoodie. Any that are remaining at the end of March will be given away.

 

Highlights:

* Re-Enrollment is online: All current students should re-enroll using the link that was emailed out at the end of January and again 2 weeks ago. (Please do not use the link on the school website for new students.) After clicking on the email link please complete each of the steps listed. At the end of the registration process you will need to pay the $100 registration fee (p/child) online. Paying the online fee completes and registers each child for next year. If you have a sibling that is currently not at ECS that you want to attend ECS next school year, please contact the school office and Mrs. Stacie McElveen will email you the link to register that child(ren). Those parents who have a child CURRENTLY in K4, 1st, 2nd, 6th, and 7th grades need to remember to re-enroll now via the email link that was sent from the school. Space in these classes is running out for next year.
* Open Enrollment: If any of your friends would like to enroll at ECS for next school year, please send them to our school website, www.ecscrusaders.com, and have them click on the Enroll Today link on the home page or under the Admissions tab and then the 2022-23 Admissions tab.

Go Crusaders!

Crusader Comments are delivered electronically through email usually on Thursday afternoons 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.

Have a great weekend, and make sure you are plugged into a local church body (Hebrews 10:24-25). If you do not have a local church that you currently attend, we invite you to visit us at Emmanuel Baptist Church at 9:15 for Sunday School and at 10:30 for worship

ECS MISSION (p. 6 in the handbook) – “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.””
