From the Principal:

In 1920, a group of Everett area families came together to form the Everett Christian School Society and then began a discussion on starting an area Christian school that would work alongside Christian families and the local church to provide a quality, biblical, Christ-centered education that prepares students to be servants of God in His World.  By 1926 the Society had purchased property, built a small wooden schoolhouse and opened its doors as the American Christian School with over 80 local students. In the 1950s the Society built a new building and changed the name to the Everett Christian School. Each summer the faculty, administration and Society members have worked diligently to prepare to continue a 90 plus year legacy of discipling and forming young people to be servants of God in His world.  In the summer of 2019 the faculty, administration and many Society members have been working hard and are eager to begin the 2019-2020 academic year. We still have a few more weeks before the school year begins, but we are excited to continue the legacy. Please pray for the final preparation for the academic year! Enjoy the remaining days of summer!

In Christ,
Mr. Alberts


Athletics

With the academic year beginning soon, it also means that the ECS Badgers will be back in action on the athletic fields!  If your middle school student (5th-8th grade) is interested in participating on the Co-ed ECS soccer team this Fall please email jalberts@everettchristian.org.  Also please see the link below for a Permissions Form.  Practices are 1-2 days a week after school with 1-2 games each week.  Go Badgers!!


Volunteer Opportunities

Soccer Coach: do you enjoy soccer?  Would you be willing to coach or be an assistant coach for the ECS Badgers this year?  Practices would be 1-2 days a week after school with games being another 1-2 days a week.  Please contact Mr. Alberts at jalberts@everettchristian.org.  This is a great way to serve the community!

Dusting, Cleaning and Light Maintenance: This summer we have had the main hallway floors redone by Harvey Construction!  They look beautiful! However, construction causes a lot of dust and debri. Would you be willing to help dust hallways, hang up the graduation pictures, clean classrooms, do some light painting and other light maintenance work to help the school prepare for the upcoming academic year?  Please contact Mr. Alberts at jalberts@everettchristian.org or your student’s classroom teacher to see in what ways you can assist!  


New Faculty

She has also substitute taught and worked as a Preschool Director at New Life Church in Everett over the past few years.  Michelle, her husband Ryan and her family have been heavily involved in the ECS community already and we excited to have her join the ECS faculty in 2019-2020.

SCRIP 

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

Everett Christian School is excited to have 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/.
