From the Principal:

This year in our chapel times on Wednesday morning we are discussing and reflecting on Hebrews 12:2 with the theme of “Fixing Our Eyes on Jesus.”  The ECS faculty and students discuss and reflect on this theme in chapel through singing, prayer, reading God’s Word and listening to stories from Christian adults on how they fix their eyes on Jesus and serve the Kingdom of God through their vocation.  Yesterday we had the privilege of hearing from a missionary couple based in Africa (we cannot share their name, specific location or organization for safety and security purposes) who serve the Kingdom of God through a rural trekking ministry. This means they carry translated parts of Scripture to rural and remote villages so that people can read portions of the Gospel in their own language.  The missionaries shared their struggles of loneliness and possible persecution that they face as they attempt to advance the Kingdom of God in these remote villages. Through all these struggles they emphasized to our students that they continue to serve because they have their eyes constantly fixed on Jesus- who also experienced persecution and loneliness and who promises to walk beside believers in their struggles.

Thank you to this missionary couple who came to ECS for sharing with our students how to fix our eyes on Jesus and providing an example of what it means to be a productive servant of God in His world.  Thank you for your work that you do in order to advance the Kingdom of God in Africa. Please pray for these missionaries in their work and also to have other Christ followers to join them in their work.  Also, please join me in praying for the Gospel message to continue to advance throughout the world and for our students and all Christ-followers to constantly fix our eyes on Jesus.

In Christ,

Mr. Alberts

AUCTION ALERT

We're just one month away from "A Nutcracker Christmas"! The annual auction is November 16 at the Edward D. Hansen Conference Center in downtown Everett. This is a large event for our school, and we crave your support! Thanks to all of you who have signed up for a role or brought in donations so far -- it is so appreciated!

ATTEND & INVITE

Ticket prices go up soon! Have you RSVP'd? We hope you can join us! Either way, please invite friends, families, and church folks. We'd like to pack the place! The more people, the more money for our classrooms. Extra invitations are in the hallway, and on the table outside Mrs. Triezenberg's office!

This volunteer role runs from 3:30 p.m. to as late as 10 p.m., depending on staffing. You are welcome to bring responsible adult relatives or friends to help you -- and double the value of your volunteer time!

SCRIP 

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


Please turn in your SCRIP order in to the office
Thursday, October 25, 2019 by 11:00 AM

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/.

Let’s take advantage of this great program!

Box Tops has now added the ability to give credit to someone when you scan your receipt through their app!  When you scan your receipt to submit Box Tops, please include which grade should get credit for your submission and we will update the classroom competition accordingly!  Thank you for your support and helping earn money for our school!
