Principal’s Note:

This past weekend my family and I began a series of readings from the Jesus Storybook Bible leading up to the Christmas story to prepare ourselves during the Advent season.  One of the main themes of the Jesus Storybook Bible is that “every story whispers his name.”  That every story in the Bible, in the Old Testament and the New Testament, is centered a single person-Jesus Christ.  That the Bible is mostly a story about a hero and a prince who comes to reclaim what was lost. The Jesus Storybook Bible states:

“It takes the whole Bible to tell this Story.  And at the center of the Story, there is a baby.  Every Story in the Bible whispers his name. He is like the missing piece in a puzzle-the piece that makes all the other pieces fit together, and suddenly you can see a beautiful picture.”

At Everett Christian School as we think about our theme “Read the Word, Live the Word” and as we celebrate Christmas, we are consistently and constantly reminded that Christmas is centered on the Word. As the Gospel of John states, the Word became flesh and dwelt among us.  Christmas is about the coming of the Word, the central part of the Story of a God who loves people and loves the world. “Read the Word, Live the Word” means that when we read any part of the Bible that we are learning about the Word, Jesus, and that living the Word means that we are living out a life to be more Christ-like.  We do this to be obedient to the one who all of human history is centered upon.

I hope and pray that you enjoy your Christmas season.  Read the Word about the central figure of human history and live a life of obedience to the Word.

In the Word,
Mr. Alberts


Everett Christian School "Wishing Tree Project":

Dear ECS Community,

Merry Christmas!

Everett Christian School has identified a number of classroom and facility needs that it hopes to accomplish in the future.  Would you consider giving an end of the year donation to ECS for a specific project?  Please see the tree in the hallway at school with different ornaments for the various projects we hope to complete.

Thank you for your continued support.  The faithfulness to ECS by the community has allowed us for 93 years and will continue to allow us to provide a Christ-centered quality education that prepares children to be productive servants of God in His world.

Thank you,

The Everett Christian School Boar, Administration, Faculty and Students

RenWeb Change:

A few years ago RenWeb was purchased by a company and called FACTS.  In order to merge the two companies they have changed the name of RenWeb to FACTS SIS.  You should be able to access the same information and keep your log-in information the same through the Everett Christian School website.  However you will slowly begin to see changes in how the information appears along with the appearance of the phone apps.  We will do our best to keep you informed of these changes. If you have questions about this please contact Mr. Alberts at jalberts@everettchristian.org.

SCRIP 


Please give it a try.


The next SCRIP order is due Friday, December 14th 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/.

Let’s take advantage of this great program!
