"THANK YOU!" To Our Grandparents!

At our Grandparent's Day in the Fall of 2015, we presented a project to all of our guests to purchase new chairs for our Plasman campus.  These new chairs would allow us to host events without needing to rent extra chairs to accommodate the group.   It's with great pleasure that I can announce that our Grandparents responded wonderfully!  With the funds raised, we were able to purchase 130 new chairs!!  These chairs will be a special blessing to our future events.  

In addition to funding these new chairs, grandparents also "stepped up" and helped by volunteering for ways to get involved and by providing important things for the various Plasman classrooms like arts and crafts supplies, books, model kits, and other generous gifts.  We are so grateful and our Plasman students continue to enjoy those classroom gifts.  Thank you, Grandparents!

Grandparents! - Don't miss our CSH Book Fair on Friday, March 11at 7:30 AM at Plasman Library. This is an opportunity for breakfast and browsing of the books with your grandchild. Mark your calendars now!

"THROWDOWN AT LAKETOWN" - On Saturday, February 20th, the Calvary Theater Team is hosting an event that you won't want to miss!  Join us at 6:00pm for a CHILI COOK-OFF followed by a TALENT SHOW at 7:00pm.  Tickets for this event are $12 per adult and $10 per student or senior (children 4 and under FREE).  You can also purchase a "Family 4-pack" that includes two adult and two student/senior tickets for just $40.  Each ticket includes two bowls of chili, cornbread, dessert and a drink.  If you want to help choose our Chili Cook-Off winner you can purchase a "Judging Ticket" upon your arrival for $20 and sample all 10 of the chili entries.  (Tickets are on sale in the Laketown campus office today! )

Although it's only early February, plans are in place to get ready for a GREAT school year for next Fall.  Here are a few NEW things that are in the planning process:

Two new Calvary Schools scholarships are now available for CSH students.  The "Terry A. Gentry Scholarship" and the "Marissa Kronemeyer Scholarship" will be available to CSH students beginning this coming Fall 2016.  The goal of these scholarships will be to support Calvary students throughout our grades.  The applications for these scholarships will soon be available.  Please watch for more information coming soon!

We are working with a few local Christian schools to create a football co-op program for our students.  This program will allow CSH students who are interested in playing football to be part of a larger team made up of other Christian schools. They will play competitively against similar teams throughout West Michigan.  Details for this program are still being worked on and our goal is to have this opportunity available to you in the upcoming months.
