Crusader Comments – Sept. 21, 2020

Hello fellow Crusaders!  

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

*Our Fall Catalog and Online fundraiser began today, Thursday, September 17 and will end on Tuesday,
October 6. Please follow the detailed instructions in the 2 emails that you received today from ECS.

*Fall School Individual Pictures arrived today and will be sent home on Monday or Friday (if it has
stopped raining). Some families opted to receive their pictures digitally and that is why they have been
able to share them online.

*COVID-19 Update – There are currently no positive student cases that we are aware of in grades K2-6th. There are currently no positive student cases that we are aware of in grades 7th -12th.


Each day we have morning announcements at the school. Each week of the school year we have an educational objective for the week and a character trait for the week. These are taken out of the handbook on pages 6-7. I am going to start listing them each week in the Crusader Comments in our continuing effort to come alongside each other and together train the mind and train the heart of each child attending ECS.

*EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVE FOR THE WEEK: Biblical Discipline – Applying spiritual principles in the correction and discipline of students (Proverbs 22:6)

*CHARACTER TRAIT FOR THE WEEK: Generosity (Philippians 4:15-18)

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 afternoon 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.
