Crusader Comments – March 28 – April 1

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 remain 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).
* Open Enrollment: If any of your friends children 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.
* * FYI – Spring Individual Pictures should be available before we go home for Spring Break (April 15-22).

* THE VERSE OF THE WEEK COMES FROM: Matthew 28:19-20 “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you….”
* EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVE FOR THE WEEK: Evangelism – (Matthew 28:19-20) To teach that Jesus Christ is the son of God, and through belief in Jesus’ death and resurrection, forgiveness of sins and new life through faith is found in Him.
