October 7th is an all school spiritual emphasis day!
Elementary Campus: The elementary students are looking forward to our SpiritualEmphasis Day next Wednesday, October 7th! We will once again explore our theme, "Together We Trust!" We will continue to hear about how God took care of Jonah, as well as a puppet skit featuring Otis and Odelia. We will trust in Jesus, we will trust in God!
MS / HS Campus: Pastor Sam and Ashley are beyond excited to be announcing October 7 as our date for MS/HS SpiritualEmphasis Day, starting at 8am and ending at 2:30pm. This day is going to be like a chapel you have never experienced before! We will be revealing our theme for the year, powerful moments with your friends, greater unity among MC and talking about real faith. Be sure to follow along this next week on social media. We will be revealing something each day that’ll be there on October 7.
ONLINE RAFFLE: This year due to Covid-19 protocols we are not able to gather together for a silent auction and dinner. However we have found a way to still have fun and give everyone a chance to win some great raffle items!
Since we won't have the benefit of the big-dollar auction items we need your support to purchase as many online raffle tickets as you can! CLICK HERE FOR MORE DETAILS!
It remains MC's intent to open school on August 6 for on campus education as planned. We will maintain safe distancing practices and other measures to provide a safe yet vibrant learning environment for our students and staff.
MC is committed to small classroom sizes which means we need to limit our new student enrollment to insure safe distancing practices, but we do have spots available. Spots still open:
Elementary grades K-5 still able to accept 40 new students
Jr. High grades 6-8 still able to accept 30 new students
High School campus still able to accept 80 new students
Dear Students and Parents, A heartfelt thank you to all of our kindergarten, middle school and high school families who participated in our recent graduations on Sunday, May 31st. With the recent events surrounding COVID-19, this was the most memorable day of graduations and a first for MCS…Graduation Ceremony Car Parades! We are trusting our graduates felt loved and honored during our graduation ceremonies and for cherished memories to fill your hearts for years to come. And now for some really exciting news...Modesto Christian School is committed to returning to on-campus, in person classes in August 2020. Our current plan is to have students participate in Crusader Round-Up on Wednesday, August 5 and classes starting Thursday, August 6, 2020. The MCS School Board and Administration are working diligently to develop thoughtful strategies in adopting guidelines to protect our MC community while having as near to normal school experience as possible. We know that one size does not fit all in school campuses or their responses, strategies and plans during these unusual times. Modesto Christian School is uniquely situated to adapt, innovate, and provide a healthy campus in a welcoming and productive learning environment. We invite you to contact us with any questions you may have. We will continue to update you as we develop common sense protocols for our reopening. Modesto Christian High School is also committed to returning students to school based athletics. The use of athletic facilities for Summer conditioning and sport specific start dates are to be determined. The return of high school sports will be in accordance with the guidelines set forth by the National Federation of State High School Associations, the Sports Medicine Advisory Committee, the California Interscholastic Federation and Stanislaus County Public Health. Again, one size does not fit all and we will establish our guidelines accordingly as we commit to the return of our athletics with healthy and reasonable protocols. As we obtain more guidance from the organizations mentioned and our local governing bodies and as we solidify protocols, we will forward information to you in a timely manner. Until we see you again, we wish you and your family a safe and healthy summer. Dr. Glen Villanueva Mrs. Cynthia Jewell School Board President Interim Superintendent/HS Principal
Mrs. Vicki Ollson Mrs. Jamie Adams Elementary Principal Preschool Director
