Calvary Christian School- February, 2017

 

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

On January 13, protected registration will be open for next school year to all our currently enrolled families. 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.

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 
belt in Appalachia. This type of trip is an important aspect of the education Students receive at Calvary Christian School as they develop a Christ centered world view and a compassionate heart for others. The students will be involved in Vacation Bible School (VBS) for the children, visiting senior centers, and encouraging community professionals such a police and firemen. Teaching Sunday school and knocking on doors of 

the community will teach valuable lessons in relating to others.
 
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.
 
Children at VBS in Past Years
Please be watching for three other events that will occur in the next two months: A Chic-Fil-A Event, Boy verses Girl Change Drive, and Friday Lunch Treats (baked items and ice cream). Once again, all money raised will be used for the CCS mission 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!

Adverse Weather Policy    
 
Decisions related to the opening and closing of the school are made by the school administrator about 5:30 AM each morning during times of actual or predicted adverse weather. Parents should look at the top of the homepage and check their email to find the status of school operations. 

In the event school must be closed early, the same communication methods will be used. Additionally, we will do our best to phone parents regarding the closing. Parents ae encouraged to call the school at 703-441-6868 in the event there is a question regarding an early closing. 
 
The safety of our school community is always at the heart of the administrator's weather call on school operations. Because of the large geographic area in which our school community lives and the various types of topography, parents always have the last word on keeping their children home.  

 
Prayer  
  

One of the great blessings of being brothers and sisters in Christ is that we can pray with one another. Call or stop by the office if you would like to pray together!
