From the Principal:

Maundy Thursday

“Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world.” John 1:29

Each day in 7th/8th grade Bible class I read from a devotional entitled Seeking God’s Face: Praying with the Bible through the Year, which provides a series of Bible verses that connect with the day of the year and the Church calendar.  We are doing this as a way to meditate on God’s world daily, but also as a way to read the Word each day before we begin our class. Each day starts with a verse of invitation and during the Passion Week the invitation comes from John 1:29, which are the words of John the Baptist when he saw Jesus coming toward him.  This passage is inviting us to remember that during the Passion Week, we are commemorating and remembering that Jesus, the Lamb, came into the world to redeem humanity and the world from its brokenness. In all the events of the Passion Week we are watching as Jesus is acting like a lamb in the Temple that was slowly being led to be offered up on the altar to atone for sins.  Today we remember the events on Thursday of the Passion week where Jesus washes His disciples feet and partakes of the Last Supper. This is where the Lamb receives His final nourishment before enduring the cross, serves his followers and reminds us of how to be in communion with Him.

Tomorrow we will remember Good Friday with our Grandparents and Special Friends.  The students will tell the narrative story of Jesus’ life on earth through the “Tale of Three Trees.”  We hope that you can join us to remember the Lamb’s sacrifice on the cross for us.

On Sunday I hope that you are able to celebrate that the tomb is empty and Jesus has risen!!  The Lamb did not remain dead; He is alive.

Our devotions end with the blessing from Revelation 5:12: “Worthy is the Lamb, who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and praise.”

In Christ,
Mr. Alberts


Grandparents/Special Friends Day:
Please make a note that Grandparents and Special Friends Day is on Friday, April 19, 2019.  Please invite your student’s grandparents or special friends to come spend some time at ECS. All special friends, grandparents and parents are invited to our special performance of the “Tale of Three Trees” by the ECS K-6 students.

There will be spaces in front of the school to drop off people and then you should park on a local side street and walk into the school.  The City of Everett is doing some construction further down on Cedar St., which means that you may have to park further away than normal.  Please be mindful of where you park to not block driveways.


"Tale of Three Trees" Reminder:

All K-6 students must wear their dark green ECS t-shirt with jeans or dark colored pants on Friday, April 19 for the musical.


Note: PLEASE NO skirts, leggings, sweat pants, or shorts.

FREE MEXICAN THEMED DINNER
ALL-SCHOOL LITERACY NIGHT
SERVE-A-THON KICK-OFF
 
Literacy Night Rotations begin at 5:30pm
Dinner service at 6:15pm
 

Join us as we practice being “Community-Builders” by sharing a meal together, doing a number of literacy activities, and hearing how we can be “Servant-Workers” through participating in the Serve-A-Thon. 
 

Each spring, Everett Christian School has a "Serve-A-Thon" fundraiser.  Here are some answers to common questions about the ECS “Serve-A-Thon”:
 
What is the Serve-A-Thon?
ECS’ mission is to “prepare students to be servants of God in His world,” so on Friday, May 17 the whole school will be serving the local community in a variety of ways:
· K-2 will visit assisted living facilities and sing for residents
· 3rd-4th will work at the Everett Food Bank and other service opportunities
· 5th-8th will serve with the Everett Parks Department to beautify our city
 
What does this have to do with fundraising?
The Serve-A-Thon day is one example of how our students can serve God and the local community.  Donations raised will fund our ongoing work as a school by helping students become life-long servants and stewards of God!  In the two weeks before the Serve-A-Thon, students and their families will be asking for monetary contributions to ECS as a way of being sponsored for the service day.  Sponsors can make one-time donations or make on-going monthly donations.

What will donations be used for?
Our goal of $35,000 -will provide new reading curriculum, new flooring in the main hallway, as well as contribute to the ECS general fund to cover some school operating costs.

Donations are tax-deductible as ECS is a 501c3 nonprofit.

SCRIP 

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


The next SCRIP order is due Friday, April 26th 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 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/.
