Principal’s Notes:

This marks the last ECS Weekly Update for the 2016-2017 school year.  We will resume the ECS Weekly in August.  This school year it has been a privilege sharing with you some thoughts, perspectives and challenges about how ECS attempts to show our students what it means to “be a hero” as a Christian disciple.  I hope and pray that everyone has an enjoyable, safe and rejuvenating summertime where you have an opportunity to enjoy God’s creation, be in community with family and friends (come to the Everett Fourth of July Parade!!), serve others and worship God for who He is.  Finally, in all the ECS teachers’ closing newsletters they reminded the students to READ over the summer!!

In Christ,
Mr. Alberts


 Submit Your Volunteer Hours:
Please submit your volunteer hours for the 2016-2017 school year by June 30th.

Volunteer hours include any activity that benefits the overall life of the school.  If you chaperoned a field trip, helped with graduation activities, served food at the Science Fiesta, coached a sport or worked during the Serve-a-thon-these all benefited the life of the school.

Registration Language Change:

After ECS sent out our Registration Packets this Spring we discovered that the language used on #13 for the Terms of Enrollment and Tuition Contract did not reflect a current practice.  We are sorry for this error and will correct it in the future. The Tuition and Enrollment Contract should read:

13.) Each school family is required to perform service hours to benefit the school community.  Families not completing their service hours will be charged a service hours fee.  The service hour requirements are 40 hours per family or 20 hours for Kindergarten only, single parents and families with students attending another school with a service agreement.  The service hours fee is $400 for families with a 40 hour requirement or $200 for families with a 20 hour requirement.  Families are billed twice per year (January and June) and are expected to have at least ½ of their service hours completed in each time period.  ECS will credit your account $10 per hour of service.  Families are required to record service hours through the school website or on their family’s RenWeb account.  The service hour requirement and fee is not applicable for Preschool and Pre-Kindergarten only families.
