"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
Joy, Energy, Life
Being back again at JCS, on site with students this week, even with masks and plexiglass, even with closed drinking fountains (fill spouts still open for water bottles:)) and dots on the floor, even with staggered recess end times and hot lunch times, even with restrictions on our school community gatherings... is SO refreshing and blessed.

Through all of these changes, we remain unchanged in our passion and love for your kids, and the mission of Christian education. Our God is not changed, and continues to sit on His throne and guide each of our steps in this school year. What hasn't changed is the joy that overflows from all of us as we get to be together again in one spot as a school community. Praise the Lord!

ATHLETICS
Our JCS middle school fall athletic calendars are out. Please be sure to review the updated protocols for sports at JCS this Fall. Thank you, parents, for your partnership in allowing sports for our middle school students to be a success!

ALL SCHOOL ANNOUNCEMENTS
  • If your child will be absent from school (due to illness, dr. appt, etc.), it is very important to call the office and let Sandy know. Teachers may not have read email or seesaw before taking attendance and therefore the absence is not reported to the office. Thanks for your help!

  • Are you feeling a little 'left out' from having access to your kids' day with the changes in parent visitors? We have the PERFECT solution for you! We need recess volunteers! There are many different options from once a week (or more!) down to once a month. This is a great way to connect with JCS kids, say hi to your kiddo, and help keep our students safe while they play! Don't miss out on this great parent-involved opportunity. Sign up today!

  • Yearbooks are in! The yearbooks from our 2019-2020 school year are now in the office. Many students have received theirs. If you didn't get yours, check in the JCS office!

  • The Passing on the Faith drive for JCS kicked off last week. 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! Thank you so much to those who have supported this fund already in the last week!

  • Curbside TRIP was a huge success over the summer so we plan to continue it this fall. For September through December, pick up will be offered approximately twice a month. 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 at this time. The order due and pick up dates for September through December are as follows to help you plan accordingly.
  • Order by Tuesday, September 8 and pick up on Wednesday, September 16,
  • Order by Tuesday, September 22 and pick up on Wednesday, September 30,
  • Order by Tuesday, October 6 and pick up on on Wednesday, October 14,
  • Order by Tuesday, October 27 and pick up on Wednesday, November 4,
  • Order by Tuesday, November 10 and pick up on Wednesday, November 18,
  • Order by Tuesday, December 1 and pick up on Wednesday, December 9 and
  • Order by Tuesday, December 8 and pick up on Wednesday, December 16.
  • When picking up your order, please enter the parking lot down by the ball field and follow along the sidewalk towards the office. A volunteer will greet you and deliver your order to your car. TRIP monetary distribution that normally occurs the end of August will not be happening this fall due to the limited availability of being able to order TRIP this spring/summer. TRIP earnings will be credited to your accounts as usual in April. Thank you for your understanding. Please pass this information along to friends and family that don’t receive emails from JCS. As a reminder, we will NOT be able to fulfill any orders at pick up. ALL ORDERS ARE PREORDER ONLY. The first order is order by September 8 and pick up on September 16!
