Principal’s Note:

Guard Your Heart

This is officially the last ECS Weekly for the 2017-2018 academic year, because in August we officially begin our next academic year.  So this will be the last time that I reflect on our theme of “Guard Your Heart” from Proverbs 4:23. This year the teachers and ECS Board read You Are What You Love by James K.A. Smith. It was a powerful book, which emphasized that as human beings we are driven by what our hearts desire and each of us has a particular desire for a particular kingdom and our daily actions and routines are a reflection of what our hearts desire.  As a principal, teacher, father, husband and friend this year I have appreciated how this study has caused me to examine the daily liturgies of my home and school life and to reflect on how my actions demonstrate (or many times do not demonstrate) my desire to serve God’s kingdom.  It has caused me to think and ponder how changing my personal, familial and school liturgies can and should orient my heart and the hearts of my family, staff and students to serve God. I know that I was blessed by and grew tremendously by this study this year and I hope and pray that those who participated in the study can say the same.  I would encourage you over the summer, a season in which our liturgies are different, to continue to ponder, reflect and examine how you continuously serve and orient your heart and the hearts of others around you towards the Kingdom of God.

Thank you for the privilege of conducting this study this year and serving as the Everett Christian School Principal for the 2017-2018 school year.  I hope and pray that you all have a wonderful summer and see you in the 2018-2019 school year… the 93rd year of Everett Christian School.

In Christ,

Mr. Joel Alberts

Katie Bjella-President

Rob Patton-Vice President

Jealynn Bahnmiller-Secretary

Thank you for being willing to serve in these offices!

The ECS Board and Administration will read and discuss the book entitled The Imperfect Board Member by Jim Brown over the summer as a way to grow and improve their ability to serve Everett Christian School.

Summer Notes:

On June 7, 2018 we celebrated the end of the school year for the Everett Christian School student body and we have begun our summer hours.  The school will be open Monday-Friday from 9am to 3pm during the months of June and August. The school will close during the month of July.  Teachers and staff are expected to check their e-mails one time per week. 

Volunteer Hours:

Each Kindergarten-8th grade family at ECS is expected to volunteer in order to benefit the overall life of the community.  Many families have already done this through chaperoning field trips, helping with the Serve-a-thon, coaching a sport or aiding in a classroom.  Please make sure to log your volunteer hours by June 30, 2018 on the school website as families will be billed in July. If you would like to serve the school over the summer there are many ways that the school could use your gifts and talents.   Please contact Mr. Alberts at jalberts@everettchristian.org if you want to get connected!!

We will resume SCRIP order in the Fall

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/.
