Principal’s Note:

As I have reflected on the theme for this year “Guard your heart” I first think of how we have to protect or shield our hearts from things that distract us from desiring God’s kingdom.  But we are also called to rejoice in what God has given to help us desire the Kingdom.  Today marks the 100th day of the 2017-2018 school year and the ECS student body will participate in a series of field day activities to celebrate.  Everett Christian School desires to be a place where students learn what it means to be a servant in God’s kingdom.  We desire to orient our students’ hearts towards a vision of the good life in God’s kingdom.  Celebrating the 100th day is an opportunity to celebrate God’s faithfulness this year at Everett Christian School and to rejoice in the many 100th day celebrations that we have had throughout the years!  Rejoice in God’s faithfulness to the ECS students, faculty, staff and families this year.  Rejoice in the opportunities that God gives us to understand, know and desire His Kingdom.

In Christ,
Mr. Alberts


Shareholders Meeting:

Thursday, February 22nd is the annual Shareholders Meeting at 7PM.  All members of the ECS Society, which is all families in the ECS Community, are invited to this meeting.  This is an opportunity to hear updates regarding the work of the various ECS committees and the Board, and some of the work the teachers are doing. In addition, we will hear plans for future such as the presentation of the 2018-2019 budget and new Board members for next year.  Light snacks will be provided.  There is a childcare option available.  Please notify the ECS Office at admin@everettchristian.org or Mr. Alberts at jalberts@everettchristian.org if you are going to bring children, so that we can plan volunteers appropriately.

The following people have prayerfully considered being nominee for the schoolboard:

My name is Coby Lathrop.  I am currently enrolled in Corban University's MDIV program.  I received my BA in History along with my Professional Teacher certification at Sonoma State University, in California.  My wife, Elizabeth and I have four children that attend ECS: Peyton, Madelyn, Ollis and Elias.  I am a firm believer in dispensational theology and attend Calvary Baptist Church in Everett.   At Calvary my ministries consist of being a deacon for the last 7 years, and youth minister to junior high students.  As a perspective board member I hope to encourage and edify the Spirit of God to all teacher, parents and volunteers.


My name is Dan Banning. I am the father of two Everett Christian School students, Joel (1st grade) and Samantha (Kindergarten). My wife Angie attended ECS for a time as a child and her Grandfather was one of the very first students at ECS. I am the Senior VP of Marketing for a small software company in Woodinville called Quantivate. My wife and I are members of Lynnwood Orthodox Presbyterian church where I served as a Deacon for 8 years and now serve on the Session (church board) as an Elder. Everett Christian School is important to me because Christian education has Christ at its center. Christ is the core of its instruction which points to Him who is our Lord and Savior. I don’t see Everett Christian as merely a private school established to avoid public schools, or so kids can simply get a better education. ECS is a school set-up and run by believing parents to do the work of not only imparting and passing down knowledge of the world, but also to do the work of molding character, developing attitudes, establishing biblical thinking patterns, and godly living in the hearts and minds of our covenant children. Thereby bringing them to maturity and equipping them to serve God, and live as a servant of God in the midst of a sinful world. While I believe my experience as a Deacon and Elder at my church as well as my professional experience in Marketing and Business would be an asset to the ECS board. I also believe that a commitment to the principles of Christian Education, the mission of ECS, and the belief that the board serves as caretakers of an institution with a long history of faithfully serving Christian parents and their children is equally important.

SCRIP IS BACK! 
Please give it a try.
Next order due:February 15th by 12:00 noon

Everett Christian School is excited to announce and re-introduce 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 2018 we will reduce your tuition payment based 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/.
