Protected Registration for 2017-18 at CCS!
Celebrating 30 Years of Ministry!

Protected Registration allows students to gain priority in enrollment and a reduced tuition rate. This year, this will be especially important as the school embarks upon a massive effort to expand enrollment in a variety of ways. Parents are encouraged to return the protected registration form as soon as possible with the appropriate Registration and Book Fee. Please stop by the office with questions or call 703-221-2016. Protected Registration ends on February 28.

Let's make this a great Spirit Week by each student and faculty member participating each day and having a ton of fun! Reminder: All students who do not participate on a day during Spirit Week are expected to come in their school uniform. Older students: Your normal, casual outfits do not count as any type of dress listed, no matter how creative your story becomes, so unless you want to help Mrs. Garcia with chores around the school, follow the rules!

Middle and High School Appalachia Mission Team Fund Raisers
Several of the Calvary Christian School Middle and High school students will once again be taking part in mission trip to Elkhorn City, Kentucky which is in the middle of the devastated coal mining
Each year, the school community comes together to help the students raise funds to be able to make the trip. The total needed for the team this year for travel and ministry expenses is $3150.00. The first effort to help our students is a wonder fund raiser. All proceeds will be shared among the individuals from CCS attending the trip and may also be used to fund special projects once the team arrives in Kentucky. The fund raiser begins on Wednesday, February 22nd, and we are hoping every family chooses to become involved. Parents may also make direct donations to the team.
Finally, the most important thing you can do for the team is pray for them during the ten week process of preparing and then "going". Your prayers matter to the team members, and they are mean so much. Please be watching for updates and get involved!
Passage of the Month: From 1 Corinthians 13
And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.
