Happy 1st day of school (PK-8th graders)!
Hi parents!

We made it to the first day of the 2020-2021 school year! We are praying for each of you as we officially begin this journey together.

A few things to note:
  1. Our drop off loop is new this year! If you haven't done so already, please take a look at the drop off and pick up procedure found here.
  2. Tomorrow (Thursday, 8/27) will be a half day of school (noon dismissal), because of heat.
  3. Lastly, you are invited to worship with us in our live chapel this morning at 8:30!

Each classroom/homeroom teacher has sent multiple emails to their class at this point. If you've not received anything from your child's teacher, please let us know!

ALL SCHOOL ANNOUNCEMENTS
  • JCS Office Hours: The office is open Monday-Friday, 7:30 AM - 4 PM. The office will be closed at noon when we have a scheduled half day.

  • Yearbooks are in! The yearbooks from our 2019-2020 school year are now in the office. Many students were able to pick up their yearbooks at their 1 on 1 meeting with their teacher, or will be receiving it from their homeroom teacher this week. If you don't get yours, it is in the JCS office!

  • Hot Lunch will be available to students again this year. The program is run through Allendale Christian, so any checks given to the office should be made out to ACS. Here are the August and September food menus, as well as an informational sheet about the hot lunch program.

  • The Passing on the Faith drive for JCS kicked off last night. Each Fall we partner with J. Milito and Associates to call on the JCS community to ask for donations to our school's annual fund. Our goal this year is to raise $145,000 for annual needs at JCS (supplies, tuition assistance, extra-curriculars, etc). We value the continued support we receive from our families and community in meeting these special needs at JCS!
