Principal’s Note:

At Everett Christian we use a curriculum framework called Teaching for Transformation, through which we have articulated our ECS Throughlines.  In our classrooms or in this Weekly we often talk about how our students can be God-worshippers or Creation-enjoyers in the various lessons and units. On Thursday May 10, 2018 we have the opportunity to we have the opportunity to be Community-Builders, to see how our students are Beauty-Creators and to encourage them to be Servant-Workers.  On May 10 we will celebrate an ECS Art Festival and the annual Serve-a-thon kickoff dinner. Throughout the year the ECS students have been doing a number of projects in art class, where they take colors, lines, shapes and images and transform them into something that show off the beauty of God’s creation. As a community we will gather together at tables, talk with one another about our lives and eat a delicious meal together.  Then we will hear a little bit about the annual Serve-a-thon where we encourage, support and sponsor the ECS student body to be servant-workers in the local community on Thursday May 24, 2018 while also supporting the community at the school through donations for ECS.

Please come and join us for this wonderful beauty-creating, community-building and servant-working event.  

In Christ,

Mr. Alberts


THANK YOU!

Thanks to the all volunteers who came to ECS on April 14 to help on a very rainy Saturday Service Day!  We were able to do a lot of weeding, planting of flowers, removal of blackberry bushes along a fence

FREE MEXICAN THEMED DINNER

  ALL-SCHOOL ART FAIR

SERVE-A-THON KICK-OFF

Doors open at 5:30 pm
Dinner begins at 6:15pm

 


Dinner begins at 6:15 pm Join us as we practice being “Community-Builders” by sharing a meal together, enjoy our “Beauty-Creators” through their art collections, and to hear 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 teach students to be servants of God in His world: so on Thursday May 24, 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 Marysville Food Bank and other service opportunities
• 5th-8th will serve with the Everett Parks Department to beautify Legion Park

What does this have to do with fundraising?
Part of ECS’ mission is “to prepare students to be servants of God school in His World.” 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 His world! 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 sponsors 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 textbooks, playground equipment updates as well as contribute to the ECS general fund to cover some school operating costs. Donations are tax-deductible and ECS is a 501c3 nonprofit.

SCRIP IS BACK! 
Please give it a try.
Next order due: April 27 by 12:00 noon

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?
