Crusader Comments – September 20-25, 2021

Hello fellow Crusaders!  

THANK YOU. THANK YOU. THANK YOU. All money and order forms need to be turned into the school office on Monday, September 20. We will have a report on how we did for our Fall Fundraiser in the next few weeks.

Highlights:

* Congratulations ECS. ECS has been nominated as Best Private School of the Pee Dee for 2021. The last 3 out of 4 years ECS has been nominated as the Best Private School of the Pee Dee. What a great opportunity your child or children have to attend ECS.
* No School or After School Care this Thursday, September 23rd and Friday the 24th.  The teachers are participating in faculty development for those two days with other teachers from North and South Carolina.
* Fall Individual School Picture Retake Day is next Wednesday, September 22. This day is for those who didn’t like their pictures and especially for those who weren’t here to get their picture taken. Please make sure that your child can be in attendance that day. If doing a retake, bring your picture packet and hand it to the photographers.
* Progress Reports for grades 7-12 went home last Monday, September 13. If you haven’t seen one, please contact the school office.
* The Fall Festival is scheduled for Friday, October 15 and Grandparents’ Day is scheduled for Friday, October 29.
* COVID-19 Update – There is currently 1 positive student case that we are aware of in grades K2-6th.  There are currently 0 positive student cases that we are aware of in grades 7th-12th. If it would make you more comfortable for your child to wear a mask during the school day, feel free to send one with them and we will be happy to support you, your child, and your family.

* THE VERSE OF THE WEEK COMES FROM: Colossians 4:5 “Conduct yourselves with wisdom toward outsiders, making the most of the opportunity.”
* EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVE FOR THE WEEK: Christian Citizenship – To promote the application of Christian principles to daily life (Colossians 4:5).
* CHARACTER TRAIT FOR THE WEEK: Patience (James 1:19)

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 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.

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.
