From the Principal:

Congratulations to the Class of 2019!  On Friday June 7, 2019 for the 92nd time (for the 93rd class- in 1970 we had an 8th grade and a 9th grade graduating class) the ECS community gathered together to praise God and bless the five graduates as they finished their time at Everett Christian School.  We also had an opportunity to acknowledge 30 years of service to Everett Christian School by Cheryl De Jong- thanks Cheryl for investing so much time and energy in ECS!

One of the most special times for me during the graduation ceremony is when the Kindergarten- 7th grade students and the faculty sing “Benediction” in which the whole community expresses our desire to have you go from here to Mount Vernon Christian, Glacier Peak, on-line high school and beyond, and continue to grow in the grace and the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Continue this blessings for the Class of 2019, for all the previous graduates of ECS and all our students as they enjoy their summer break.

In Christ,
Mr. Alberts

Summer Hours:

ECS will be open during the month of June and August from 9am-3pm Monday-Friday, but please call ahead as special events might be occurring at school where individuals might be on vacation.  The school office will be closed during July, but we will continue to check email and voicemail during this time.

From the Board . . . 

The ECS Board met this past Tuesday night for our monthly meeting.  The Finance Committee reported that we received over $40,000 in donations last month!  The Board reviewed and approved a proposal from the Facilities Task Force to begin a feasibility process on expanding the ECS facilities to serve our community with additional classroom space.  The Board conducted their annual elections for the next school year and the newly elected officers are as follows:

President: Katie Bjella
Vice President: Benji Swinburnson
Secretary: Jealynn Bahnmiller
Treasurer: Dan Banning
Asst. Treasurer/Secretary: Scott Lang

Board member Tim Shillair has resigned from the Board.  THANK YOU Tim for your service to the ECS Community in this capacity!  The Board has appointed Jenn DeJong to fill Tim's term.  Jenn will be affirmed at the next Shareholders Meeting.  Thanks Jenn for being willing to serve!

New School Board Biography:

Jennifer DeJong is looking forward to serving Everett Christian School as a board member. Jennifer attended ECS from kindergarten to 8th grade and her mother Cheryl DeJong has served the school as a teacher and NILD educator for 30 years. She is married to Corby Schuh and they have two children who are current students at ECS: Adelyn (entering 4th grade) and Ava (entering 1st grade). She currently works as a Deputy Prosecuting Attorney for Snohomish County.

Fourth of July Parade:

Deck out your strollers, bikes, scooters, and wagons with red, white, and blue and join the ECS parade group! Everett Christian School will again be participating in the city of Everett's Fourth of July Parade! We hope you can join us for this fun annual community event...

The parade starts promptly at 11 a.m. July 4. We will line up ahead of time at our allotted spot, near the Everett High School campus. Total walking distance is under 1.5 miles. Past participants will note that the train has gone into retirement... Thank you so much to the Jubies for the generous loan when they owned the train! While there won't be a clanging bell this year, we'll still have lots of bubbles...! 

This year's parade theme celebrates the community's diverse cultures. If we have enough participants who are able, we can have some kids dress up to reflect their heritage. Otherwise, we'll just pile on the patriotic colors! Because we're all Americans, just as we're all one family in Christ.

You in? Let Melissa Patton know if you can participate: 
melpatton@gmail.com, 425-312-3530. Parking info and specific meet-up spot will be communicated closer to the Fourth.

Volunteer Opportunities:

Please remember to log volunteer hours!! Each family at Everett Christian is expected to complete 20 or 40 volunteer hours that benefit the life of the school.  You should log these hours through the ECS website. Hours are due on June 30, 2019. If you have questions about this please contact the ECS Office at admin@everettchristian.org or Mr. Alberts at jalberts@everettchristian.org.

If you need to complete volunteer hours there are plenty of ways to benefit the life of the school this summer.  There is always landscaping (weeding and trimming) that can be done on the school grounds. We will also be painting classrooms and offices this summer.  Additionally, we are refinishing the hallway floors in July, which means we will need to remove and then reinstall the lockers, cubbies and toilets. If you are willing and able to help with any of these tasks, then please contact Mr. Alberts at jalberts@everettchristian.org.

Volunteer Hours Needed?

  • Starting Monday June 17, 2019 at 9am we will begin the process of preparing the school for having the hallway floors refinished.  This means taking down class pictures and temporarily removing the lockers and cubbies. Eventually the hallways will also need to be repainted.  If you are available on Monday to begin helping please contact Mr. Alberts at jalberts@everettchristian.org.

  • Pizza coordinator for 2019 - 2020 (if you have any questions about this position please contact Robyn Lang at robyn.lang@comcast.net).
  • 2 - 3 other parents to come in and serve pizza on Tuesday mornings (1 1/2 hours per week) .  Note: for 2019 -2020 school year.
  • Someone to purchase snacks for the 7th & 8th grade Thursday snack sales for the 2019-2020 academic year.

2019-2020 Calendar

Please see the link for the 2019-2020 school calendar.  Please note that the Teachers Convention has been moved to November from October.  Please also note there was a slight error on the previous calendar as it listed January 17, 2020 as a Teacher Growth Day, but there is school this day.  Please note that other dates are subject to change.

This is a full-time teaching position.

Help reduce your tuition!!
Please give it a try.

Everett Christian School is excited to have the SCRIP program that can be a way to for ECS families to reduce their tuition payments!

How Does it Work? 

ECS families order gift cards either on-line or via paper copies from over 780 nationwide retailers including Starbucks, Target, Walmart and Amazon.  The retailers provide a rebate ranging from 1.5% to 16%.  Half of the rebate goes to ECS to pay for administrative fees and to act as a fundraiser while the other half is applied to your family’s account (i.e.4% rebate means 2% goes to the school and 2% goes to the families).  In June 2019 we will reduce your tuition payment based on the amount of money that you earned through rebates.  In the 2019 school year we will apply the rebates to your January and June tuition payments.  Every other Friday the ECS SCRIP Coordinator (Stephanie Hopper) or the ECS staff will order the gift cards and they will be expressed shipped to ECS for pick up the next week.  We will send an email to inform families of the pick up date.  Then you go and spend your gift cards on products that you normally would purchase anyways.  

Thousands of non-profits use SCRIP and it is a program that benefits the school, the families and the stores.  When ECS previously used the program some families reported earning over one month of tuition reduction!  Plus you can have relatives and friends sign up to benefit your families.

How do I sign up?

If you are interested in signing up for SCRIP or need more information check out the website at www.shopwithscrip.com/.  Our school codes is  DCEAE3ED7L55. Please see below for a copy of the sign up sheet and for a list of participating retailers.  We will have paper copies of the sign up sheet available in the ECS Office, or you can create your own on-line account.

Who do I contact if I have questions?

Please contact Mrs. Triezenberg at admin@everettchristian.org, Mr. Alberts at jalberts@everettchristian.org or call the school at (425) 259-3213 if you have any questions or concerns.  Also you can review the website at www.shopwithscrip.com/.
