Pastor John Thomas
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.

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.
The event is Friday, May 12th 9:30 - 2:45. The links below provide the permission/T-shirt size form and address form. Please have the forms filled out and returned to the office by March 1st. NOTE: If you would like to volunteer this day, you can sign up on the permission form, there is a section for you to fill out. If you are also interested in helping out with donations we are asking for cases of water. Also on the form, if you, the parents, would like to purchase a t-shirt that day, you can select your size on the permission form. Cost is $10.00 per shirt (sm-xl) $12.00 per shirt (2x-3x).

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.
Remind Link- https://remind.com/join/ab29ff
Student Attendance: When your student is absent we need an excuse the day the student returns to school. If we do not receive an excuse an online OOPS Reminder will be sent out via email to you to fill out online. Once you receive the OOPS Remind you have 2 days to send the excuse in by the given date or you can send in the excuse with the student/parent, email or fax.
Email address: email@example.com
Fax number: 724-918-9931
Also, tardies and early dismissals that are caused from doctor appointments please remember to get an excuse from the Dr.’s office so it will not go against your student’s attendance.
