COFFEE & FELLOWSHIP

Join us each morning when dropping off your child(ren) for school. Take an extra few minutes to park and start your day with some great fellowship as well as a great cup of Java Dave’s coffee. We have been enjoying these mornings with our teachers and parents and we would love to see you there. The coffee bar is open in the lobby between 7:30 - 8:00 a.m. each morning.



LUNCH PROGRAM BEGINS

Our lunch vendors will begin delivering lunches on August 28th, and students will be able to purchase a lunch in the mornings beginning that day.  Here is the lunch schedule:

Monday - Chick-fil-A

Tuesday - Marco’s Pizza

Wednesday - Nibbler Box (students create their box from a choice of items)

Thursday - Chick-fil-A

Friday - Papa John’s Pizza & Freckles Frozen Custard

Attached below is the Nibbler Box order form (so you can see the options available with that) and the September monthly lunch order form.  Next week all students wanting to order lunch must order in the morning.  K4 - 3rd grade must order at the office window.  4th - 12th grades will order in their classroom.  Students may continue to pack their lunches, we offer lunch from these vendors as an option for our families.  Take a look at the monthly order form to see prices.  Parents may order and pay for the month (pick the days you’d like to order) or you can also set up a lunch ledger for your student in the office.  Students can use money from their lunch ledger to purchase lunches on a day by day basis.  Please note: The big refrigerator in the Great Room will be cleaned out every Friday afternoon after school and things left in it will go into the trash; so if your student packs their lunch remind them to bring home any plastic containers!  If you have any questions about our lunch program, please call or stop by the office!  

COMING SOON: we will be adding a Salad Bar option to our lunch program!  Watch your email for an announcement about the Salad Bar!

CHARGER ROUND TABLE AT NEW LIFE RANCH

Today after school our House sponsors and the House officers headed to New Life Ranch to prepare for Charger Round Table.  Tomorrow our 6th - 12th grade students will be heading to New Life Ranch for our annual retreat & Charger Round Table.  These two days at the ranch usually set the tone for the rest of the school year as students eat, play, and pray together.  Students will leave on Thursday morning at 8:15 and will return on Friday afternoon at about 3:15.  Please keep our students and sponsors in your prayers during these next two days!

COLLEGE NIGHT

We are going to be hosting our 3rd Annual College Night on Friday, September 15th at 7:00 pm. We have some great schools coming to be on our college panel - some have been here before but we have some new schools this year. Coming back for the second year is David Burney, financial aid representative from JBU. He was incredible last year presenting the financial aid portion of the evening! We are pleased that he has agreed to come back this year.

Please let your friends and family know that they can come to College Night with you and your high schooler.  You will learn about college admission in general, as well as have the opportunity to learn about the schools that will be there. Most of what they will be talking about will be helpful information no matter where your students decide to attend college. There will be a Q & A session during the evening when everyone can get their questions answered. At the end of the evening the representatives will be set up at their individual tables for students and families to come visit with them individually and ask any other questions they might have. There will also be desserts and coffee during that time.

These are the colleges/universities that will be represented at College Night: TU, ORU, OU, UCO, JBU, OBU, and [email protected]. Mrs. Collingsworth is still waiting to hear from OSU but is hoping they will also be a part of the evening.

We thank you in advance for your desire to continually assist us in improving our campus for your children and grandchildren.
