Entering Week 2


Not only are we entering week two of the school year, but we are entering the month of September and students should begin to get back into the routine of school. However, students may see the need to make schedule changes for which they should see Mr. Greenly, our new Director of Student Life, who is also serving as our high school guidance counselor.  Students have until next Wednesday, September 10, to make any schedule changes.

If you have any questions or concerns about any of your child’s classes, please contact his/her teachers. Our teachers are open and willing and want to be available to you to discuss your child and his/her classes. The easiest way to contact teachers is by e-mail.  You may find links to their e-mail addresses in ParentsWeb under the links for each of their classes.

As I mentioned in last week’s blog, this Friday, September 5, is Spiritual Emphasis Day.  The high school students will travel to Berks Christian for a Spiritual Emphasis Day with Tri-County Christian Schools (Berks, Conestoga, Westmont, and Covenant Christian will be joining us). The focus of the day is service and missions, encouraging students to serve in their communities and the world. The day will be similar to a college fair with individual charities, service  groups, and missions having booths or tables set up to present their organization. There will be a keynote speaker from Kensington which runs a mission out of one of the poorest sections of Philadelphia.
Students who are vocational, work study, or part-time students taking college courses should contact me to indicate whether or not they will be attending for the day.  If they choose not to attend, their absence will be excused.
If you have any questions about the event, please contact Mr. Greenly, CCS representative for the event, at jack.greenly@conestogachristian.net.

Last week our soccer team kicked off their season defeating both Hershey Christian and Johnstown Christian Schools. This week our JV and varsity volleyball teams kick off their season playing Berks Christian today at Berks with the JV starting at 4:00 p.m. and the varsity playing at 5:00 p.m. The varsity soccer team also plays at Berks at 4:00 pm. To see all of the teams’ schedules, go to  http://www.ccaconferencepa.org/g5-bin/client.cgi?G5genie=683&school_id=3.

Later this month we have some exciting events happening:

September 23 NHS Induction
September 24 See You at the Pole
September 25 Picture Day
September 26 HS Leadership Retreat

More information will follow in later blogs.  As always feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
