Box Tops for Education
Don't forget to save your Box Tops!

Our next collection date is February 18th. You can find box tops on most items that you use daily.

  • cereal
  • yogurt
  • granola bars

This is a great way to support our school. We use the box tops to purchase items that our teachers need in their classrooms.
Winter Banquet
The High School Winter Banquet is just a month away!

Tickets are now on sale for $20 per person. All dresses need to be approved by January 25th.

 The deadline to purchase tickets is January 29th.
End of Quarter
The end of the quarter is January 11th. Report Cards will be available on RenWeb on January 15th. Just a reminder that we do not print report cards.

From the Desk of the Librarian
Six weeks until the Book Fair! Mark your calendars for February 18-22. Watch for information coming soon.

Dress for the weather
We make every effort to get the students outside for fresh air. If the Real Feel temperature is above 32 degrees, we keep the students outside for about 30 minutes. When the Real Feel temperature is right around 30 degrees, we take the students outside for at least 15 minutes. If the Real Feel temperature is below 30 degrees, we usually keep the students inside for play. With this in mind, please make sure your child wears a heavy, warm winter coat to school. A hat, gloves, and scarf are also beneficial.

School Emergency Closing Announcements
In case of inclement weather, please be advised that we do not always follow the Berkeley County Public Schools emergency closing schedule! Faith Christian Academy will always have its own announcement regarding school closings and delays. We will place announcements in the following media:

  • School website: www.faithchristianacademy.net (“Quick Notes” along right side of home page)
  • Radio stations: WEPM (1340 AM) and Lite 97.5
  • Television: NBC News 25
  • A text message will be sent through the Renweb data base – all parents will receive an text alert
  • Phone Message: Call the school and enter extension 223 for weather related messages

Every attempt will be made to make a call by 6:00 a.m. on the morning of a cancellation or delay. If a two-hour delay is called then parents need to check back and see if a second announcement is made. Again, every attempt will be made to make a call as quickly as possible. A two-hour delay will result in before care opening at 9:00 a.m. On days where weather may prompt an early dismissal, please do not call the school office. Check your texts frequently when inclement weather occurs or listen for the radio announcement. The school phone lines are needed for emergency purposes.

Any time the forecast is for inclement weather our primary goal is to make the very best decision for the safety of our students. We realize that our students come from a wide geographic area and that road conditions often vary greatly across the region. When inclement weather occurs, parents must use their best judgment in determining whether or not to bring children to school or pick them up early. When parents choose to keep their children home due to the weather, those absences will be excused with a note indicating the reason for the absence or tardy.
