Crusader Comments – November 7-11

Hello fellow Crusaders!  

Hartsville United Way is holding its 9th annual Coats, Hoodies, Hats and Gloves for Kids drive. A collection box is located next to the school office and will be available until November 18. Please donate new or gently used items. This is a great opportunity to give back to our local community and help others who are in need.

* Little Crusader Soccer starts Monday, November 7. It will be on Mondays and Tuesdays this year from 2:45-4:30. Any students not picked up by 4:35 will be placed in after school care and charged the daily rate of $15.
* Our 9th-12th grade students and chaperones are out November 9-11 for our annual fall field trip. This year we are visiting famous sites in New York and the surrounding area.
* Congratulations to our Volleyball team for finishing 6th in the state and to our Soccer team for finishing 4th in the state.
* Thank you for supporting our Fall Book Fair. You helped us raise $1,770.43.
* Friday, November 18 will now be a Senior Class sponsored Pizza Lunch. If you had preordered a school pizza lunch on that day, you will now need to fill out the paper order form for your child to have a pizza lunch on that Friday. The order form and money are due back in the school office by Tuesday, November 15.
* Basketball practices for students in grades 6-12 have started and the season is underway. The first away game is on November 14. The schedule for games can be found on your ECS website,, under the Athletics tab and then the Team Schedules tab.
* FYI – Our seniors will deliver Butter Braid items on Wednesday, November 16.


* THE VERSE OF THE WEEK COMES FROM: 2 Timothy 3:16-17 “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God, may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.”

Go Crusaders.

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 PHILOSOPHY (p. 6 in the handbook) – “Emmanuel Christian School is an academic institution, founded for the purpose of educating students from a Christian worldview and committed to
maintaining and delivering a strong academic program.”


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 text to remind you to review it as you are making your plans for the upcoming week.
