"In the same way, LET YOUR LIGHT SHINE before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your father in heaven." Matthew 5:16
The enrollment packets were due last Friday, however we realize there are many potential packets still out there. Important decisions for classroom sizes, staffing, etc. need to be made soon, and these decisions are based on projected student counts for next year. Please, if you haven't done so already, turn in your Enrollment Packets TODAY!! We truly appreciate it!!

If you know of a family considering JCS for next year, please have them contact the school office and we would be happy to see that they receive a tour if desired, as well as answer any questions they may have.
If you have a new student enrolled for next year (Pre-K/Kindergarten) there are documents that are required by the state for us to have on file BEFORE school starts this fall. Some of these documents require you to plan for in advance:
  • Green Health Form completed and signed by your doctor which needs to include the immunization record

  • Vision and Hearing Screening - Currently the Health Department has not set up testing dates/sites for these clinics. They are hoping to provide some this summer with first priority going to Kindergartners. Some doctors will perform these at your well child visit so be sure to ask your doctor. We will notify all incoming Kindergartners as soon as we find out if the Health Department will be offering these clinics this summer.

  • A copy of your child's Birth Certificate - Last year there was difficulty in getting these records from the County Clerk's office in a timely manner. If you don't already have a copy of your birth certificate, please be sure to place a request as soon as possible to allow time for processing!

If you have questions regarding the items needed, please contact Sandy Brower in the school office.
Gift cards for Countryside Greenhouse are now available in the school office. The cards are $50 each and a percentage of each card sold goes back to Jenison Christian. These would make great Mother's Day gifts!
One important thing that we want to remind families of is that if any member of your household has been tested and is awaiting test results for COVID, it is imperative that ALL students of JCS from this household remain at home until those test results come back. The ripple effects of a positive case can greatly affect the number of students needing to quarantine. We are trying our best to keep as many students in the classroom as possible and finish this year strong! Thank you for your help!
