If you would like to give a tangible gift to our school, giving through the Amazon Wish List Program is a great way to show your support! Our staff and students have been greatly blessed by the gifts already coming in through this program.
  • There is NO deadline for placing orders. These lists will stay active throughout the school year and teachers will add to them as needs come up. This will be available all year long and items can be shipped directly to JCS! The website link is: https://sites.google.com/jenisonchristian.org/wishlists/home

  •  You can have items shipped directly to JCS by selecting 'Jenison Christian School's Gift Registry Address' for the shipping address when checking out.

  • If you'd like to add a note so we know who made the donation, please select 'Gift Options' under Step 3 in the checkout process.

  • There are also wish lists for the 'JCS Outdoor Education' space as that is used on a daily basis by preschool-elementary, as well as for our custodial staff and childcare team 
  • Lunch Program Option for 1/2 Day - Do you need a cold-lunch take-home option for the half-days of school ahead on December 18, January 15, and January 29? As part of our hot lunch program with the free offering through the USDA this school year we are able to provide that for you, if you provide us with an advanced request. If you would like us to send your child home with a sack-lunch on those days, please email Penny Thatcher at pthatcher@jenisonchristian.org and let her know you'd like this option.

Tuition Reduction Incentive Program (T.R.I.P.)
Curbside TRIP is moving inside starting in December.  TRIP will be available for pick up inside by the office door. There can only be two people inside picking up at the same time. Please form a line outside until you can safely enter. Please remember to social distance and wear a mask. 

As before, all orders MUST be preordered. TRIP has dwindled down its inventory and gift cards are now being ordered on an as needed basis. Pick ups will be offered ONLY on Wednesday evenings from 6:30-7:00 PM as volunteers and parents are not able to be in the school building during school hours. 


Orders are due by Tuesday, December 1 for pick up on Wednesday, December 9 and
Orders are due by Tuesday, December 8 for pick up on Wednesday, December 16!

Order by Tuesday, March 2 and pick up on Wednesday, March 10,
Order by Tuesday, March 23 and pick up on Wednesday, March 31.

If you have an online TRIP account, we would encourage you to order your TRIP cards via the online ordering system. You can pay for your order via PrestoPay, with your credit card or with a check at pick up. Online ordering has a huge selection of businesses and denominations. If you don’t have an online TRIP account, please email your order to JCS Trip at trip@jenisonchristian.org and your money will be collected when you pick up your order.  As a reminder, we will NOT be able to fulfill any orders at pick up. ALL ORDERS ARE PREORDERED.
