Grandparent Getcha Day
Dear FCS Families,
We want to take this opportunity to invite your child’s grandparents to “Grandparent Getcha Day” on Friday, October 29, at 12:00p.m. Grandparents will have the opportunity to pick up their grandchildren (12:00 dismissal day) and be celebrated in the process. Banners and decorations will line the drives of both campuses, and goodie bags will be distributed to grandparents while they wait for their grandchildren in the carline. It is our desire to let grandparents know how much they are loved and appreciated!
Also, we know that one of the great traditions of Grandparents’ Day for our students is getting to leave school with their grandparents and then spend the afternoon together. We hope that “Grandparent Getcha Day” will carry on the specialness of this tradition. While Grandparents’ Day 2021 will look different from years past, we are excited to welcome grandparents back to school…even if it is only in the carline. Our hope is that when they exit the school drive, there will be no doubt in their minds how thankful we are for them.
If your child will be picked up by their grandparents, we ask that you RSVP to the school office by this Friday, October 22. Please let us know how many grandparents will be picking up your child and if they need a Sugar-free alternative treat. You can RSVP by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, calling 815.652.4806, or returning the paper that was sent home with your child (on Tuesday, October 20). Please note, Friday, October 29, is a 12:00 Dismissal.
Thank you for your continued support and understanding as we move forward in this school year.
Mrs. Worrell and Mr. Fassler

Pause Make-up Days
First of all, we would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your understanding and support during the pause in September. We know that it was a difficult time for many; your thoughtfulness and prayers meant so much to us. Secondly, there will be no change to the Fall Break schedule. We know that many vacations have already been planned for this week…again no change to Fall Break.
*Wednesday, November 17, will be a full day of school (originally a 12:00 dismissal).
*Winterim Week (March 7-11) will now be academic, in-class days. The Middle School/High School may still do a service project one afternoon during the week. This change does not affect the Junior/Senior Missions Trip.
*Other 12:00 Dismissal Wednesdays may be changed to full days of school. We will try to notify you in a timely manner if those changes are deemed necessary.
Thank you for your willingness to be a part of the ministry at Faith Christian School. We know that God has His hand upon this year, and He is going to continue to do great things as we grow in Him.
And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns. (Philippians 1:6)
Stay tuned…the best is yet to come!
Mrs. Worrell and Mr. Fassler
