Crusader Comments – March 7-12

Hello fellow Crusaders!  

Those parents who have a child CURRENTLY enrolled 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. Next year’s 7th grade class is now full.

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).
* 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.

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
