Diversity and Marriage Statement: Calvary Chapel Christian School believes that an individual's first responsibility is to the God of the Bible and that a person's whole life should reflect His framework in a context of peace and selfless love. CCCS's standard for diversity is found in the Bible. Individual differences in lifestyle that deny, ignore or reject biblical standards represent diversity in rebellion to God's standards and are unacceptable for the families of CCCS. CCCS holds to the King James Version of the Bible and asserts that marriage is the union between one man and one woman, and that from the beginning of creation God made humans in two distinct sexes, male and female.

Statement of Non-discrimination: It is the commitment of CCCS to provide Christian education by and for God's elect, holy and beloved according to the faith of God's elect, and the acknowledging of the truth that is after godliness, and in that context for the purpose does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, sex and ethnic background. This policy is exercised during student admission, hiring of faculty and staff and all school-administered programs.

SCHOLARSHIPS:  

The school provides a list of agencies offering scholarships.  It is the parent's responsibility to make themselves aware of the scholarships available, read the school's notifications and newsletters, know if the scholarship is to be mailed directly to the agency or to our school, know and adhere to the deadline dates for applications, paying any fees required with the application, and photocopying your application for your records, for proof that you completed the forms, and for use if there are any issues.  

If you have questions regarding scholarships, please feel free to contact the school office and they will direct your call to the proper person. 

On-time tuition installments must still be received even if you have applied for a scholarship.  Scholarship amounts vary greatly and we do not know the exact date we will receive them, yet our school still needs to operate until they do come in and tuition payments are needed in a timely manner.  If a scholarship is received and applied to your account, and your personal payments create a credit on your account, you may receive a reimbursement for that credit. 

Most scholarships are applied per month over the entire school year.  This means that you may not discontinue making your monthly installments.  Your monthly installment may be reduced by the amount of the scholarship per month, or you may apply the scholarship at the end of your tuition installments for the school year.  If you withdraw your student from the school during the school year, we will be required to return the amount of the scholarship for the months not attended.

Below are some foundations that are accepting applications

NHS- NHS Sponsors Operation Christmas Child! All items MUST be new! Please do not send in used toys

The NHS (National Honor Society) is very excited to reach out to you for the collection of items for Operation Christmas Child. From March 14th to May 25th we will be collecting items to send to children who are less fortunate in hopes to help them have a great 2022 Christmas! This is also an outreach to fulfill Jesus’ command to His people in Matthew 28:19-20, reading, “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.” (KJV) 

 

What is it? 

The collection will be school wide, including both preschool classes, elementary, middle school, and high school. Each classroom will be given a box to store the month’s item collections. At the end of the month an NHS member will be counting and collecting the items listed for the month. The students will be split up into a competition of 3 year preschool versus 4 year preschool, kindergarten through 5th grade, and middle school and high school homeroom, all with the most items collected. The contest will run until the last date of collections, May 25th. The winner will be announced on Thursday, May 26th. The prize will be an ice cream sundae bar, which will also be held on Thursday, May 26th for all three winning classes/grades. 

 

Where will collections go? 

For preschool collections, both classrooms will have a box outside of their classroom to hold collected items for easy counting and keeping track. The same will be for elementary, each grade will have a box outside of their classrooms to hold their classes items for the month. For middle school and high school things will be a little different. The collection boxes will be based upon homeroom classes/teachers for your Monday class schedule. Meaning, if you have Mrs.Sheppick for homeroom on Mondays, any collections, no matter the day, that you bring in will be given to her because she is your homeroom teacher. 

We hope to use this event to glorify God and help those in need while fulfilling the command given to us by Jesus in the gospel of Matthew! Thank you and God bless!  -CCCS National Honors Society

Jog for Jesus-  Jog for Jesus (J4J) is an annual event here at the school. This is a combined end of year picnic and fundraiser for Pre-K through 12th grade. We ask that EVERY family and student participate. This will be one of the simplest fundraisers for you as a parent! We ask that you send in 10 names/addresses per student and we will do the rest! What happens next, is the students write letters to those family/friends and ask for a donation, for jogging. It does cost the school around 10.00 per student for the day, which is why it is important that everyone participate. Students receive a free t-shirt and lunch that day. 

Student Attendance: 

 

An Attendance Reminder:

All students who still needs excuses for their attendances must be turned in as soon as possible. The end of the school year is coming to an end on May 27, 2022. An email letter will be sent out requesting for absent excuses and a given date for the excuse to be turned in by. If they are Dr.'s excuses we will give you till the end of the school year. We understand Dr.'s excuses can be delayed at times. If we do not receive any excuses they will become unexcused on the student's attendance record and report card. 

 

Please Note: school policy states that once they reach 3 unlawful/unexcused absences it is required to send an Official Notice to the school district you reside in.

Parent Text Messaging/Remind App- We send text messages for bad weather cancellations and delays, emergency information, general announcements/reminders. Remind is available for all cellular phones, regardless if it is a smart phone or not. The app is free. It is VERY IMPORTANT that every student’s family has this app. Obviously it is used for snow notifications, but should the school experience an emergency or a safety issue, this would be the way we communicate important information to families. 

 

A few things about the Remind app:

1- It is not a two-way text app. The school will not respond to messages received on Remind. 

2- Purpose is simply to get important information directly to you in a fast, convenient way. 

3-The App is free. 

 

Simply click on this link, from your smartphone and follow the prompts. If you do not have a smartphone, contact the office and we will get you set up on your current cell phone.
