Principal’s Note:

What do the topics of Luke 5, “Reading Early Genesis in its Ancient Near Eastern Context,”!aligning social studies curriculum, “Anxiety Disorders in Children,” “Literacy in the Kindergarten Classroom” and rewriting Preschool curriculum have in common?  These are all topics that the ECS faculty learned about last week during our InspirED Convention at Abbotsford Christian School and our teacher growth day. These days were a wonderful opportunity for the ECS faculty to gather with other Christian educators from around Washington and British Columbia to learn, to share, to study and to grow in order to become better educators, to help our students understand our theme of “Read the Word, Live the Word” and to continue to provide a quality Christ-centered education.  We had the opportunity to listen to Eugene Cho, a pastor, writer and speaker from Seattle, give a wonderful message from Luke 5:17-20 when Jesus heals a paralytic man, to worship with over 1000 other educators and to reflect on the first few weeks of the school year.

Thank you for the opportunity to the 2018 InspirED Convention.  Make sure to ask an ECS faculty member what they learned.

In Christ,
Mr. Alberts

Auction News

Bring family and friends to enjoy a "Starry Night" and support our school!

The annual dinner and auction gala is set for November 10 in downtown Everett at

the Edward D. Hansen Conference Center. 


Please invite others! Extra invitations are in the hallway.

Please help bring in donations! Have a talent to share? Crafty? We'd love your donations of handmade goods or handyman services. A regular customer somewhere? Ask for a donation at your next purchase.


The auction is a major fundraiser for the school. And as a major event...

it comes with major volunteer needs! 

 
WE REALLY NEED VOLUNTEERS!

Our BIGGEST needs right now:

-
Phone callers: Call local businesses to follow up on donation requests. Phone callers are needed now! The more volunteers, the fewer the calls... Even two over your lunch break helps. (Don't know what you'd say? Script provided...) 

-
Child care coordinators: Help organize and set up our free, volunteer-run childcare service the night of the auction. Most work is the night of the auction, but there also is prep work. Key pieces we need help with: 
     (1) food
     (2) activities
     (3) check-in/check-out 
(Bonus: You already know the kids are cute!)

-
Dessert Dash coordinator: Help arrange for homemade or bakery-donated desserts for auction night. (Quite possibly the tastiest volunteer option on the list.)

Many other volunteer opportunities also are available.

Did you know?

- Some families focus on the auction and get all their volunteer hours won-and-done right out of the gate.

- Enlisting the help of grandparents or other adult family members can add to your volunteer hours and is especially helpful for things like child care on auction night.
- Bribery is not above us... cookies? homebaked bread? Let's deal.

Ready to sign up? Other auction questions? Reach out at 
auction@everettchristian.org, talk to Melissa Patton at school or drop her a line at 425-312-3530, send a note by owl to Judi, billow up some smoke signals, or come to a Booster Club meeting!

Classroom Auction Baskets or Project:

Kindergarten: Kindergarten quilt (Each parent please donate $15.00 each for material and supplies).

First and Second Grade:Mom  & Dad Date Night Basket ~ Parents please help fill this basket up or cash donation.

Fifth and Sixth Grade: Elegant Chocolate Lover's Gift Basket ~ Parents please help fill this basket up (anything Chocolate) or cash donation.

Seventh and Eighth Grade: Elegant Coffee Lover's Gift Basket ~ Parents please help fill this basket up (anything Coffee)  or cash donation.

 
Pastors Appreciation Breakfast

The ECS School Board is hosting a Pastors Appreciation Breakfast


Wednesday, October 17th (Breakfast at 8:00 - 8:45 am, Chapel 8:45 - 9:30 am).

Has your invitation been delivered?
 
Seeking punch bowls:

Do you have a punch bowl or beverage dispenser that you never use?

Is it gathering dust from that wedding oh so long ago? We'd like to take it off your

hands! The ECS Kitchen could use 1 more punch bowls for our annual fellowship

gatherings. If you or a relative have one to donate, drop it off at the main office.

Thank you!

SCRIP 


Please give it a try.


The first SCRIP order for the 2018-2019 school year is due
Friday, October 12th no later than 11:00 am.

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 January and June 2019 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/.
