Calhoun Christian School provides academic excellence while upholding God’s truth and challenging children to serve.
Calhoun Christian School will be the benchmark of excellence in Christ-centered education.
Lunch menus are due today! We do want to mention that the dates are wrong, the food and days of the week are correct but the dates are wrong and we apologize for that mistake. We have attached the updated one with correct dates but the menu is still due today Sept. 21st.
We will have a 3rd through 5th Grade Boys Basketball Meeting on September 24 at 6:30pm in the school cafeteria. Followed by some time to play basketball in the gym. Please join the coaches, Bruce Entsminger and Ben Belote, for this information meeting.
We are looking for parent volunteers who would be willing to come supervise Elementary Lunch recess. Lunch Recess is from 11:20-11:58. This is a great way to get some fresh air and some volunteer hours on your lunch break!
Please call the office to let us know what day you are available to come and help us supervise.
Starting October 1st we will be starting a new SCRIP challenge. For every purchase made in the office or online your name will go into a drawing for a $50 gift card of your choice. The more times you buy, the more entries you get into the drawing. Encourage friends and family to enroll in our scrip program and gain entries into the drawing and support your student and our school. This challenge runs from October 1st to the 31st. If you need anymore information please make sure to talk to Summer LaBonte in the office.
We want to say a huge thank you to Kellogg Community Credit Union and Amber Mallernee (Mia Swain’s Mom). KCCU recently donated $2500 to local schools. Employees were able to wear school colors or appear and to each school district represented they donated $100. 25 different schools were represented and Amber Mallernee represented our school.

JEN AMO PRESENTATION
Human Trafficking Awareness/Training.
On November 14 we are have Jen at War speak to our 7th-12th grade students from 9:15 to 11:15. She is also going to be speaking to parents beginning at 6:30. Attached are a couple fliers.
“I want to share the reality of this issue with the families, communities and professionals
of this nation. Learn more about my story through video at www.jennatwar.com.I look forward to working with you to take your circle of influence and change it into a circle of protection! Awareness is building value by protecting our bodies and guarding our hearts!”
We will be doing the Live Nativity for Christmas again this year. For this event each student will need to be dressed in a costume as if they are from the time of Jesus’ Birth. Please begin planning now for the costumes for your child(ren). We will be providing some ideas in the weeks to come. We believe this will be an incredible opportunity to celebrate Christmas as a school community, but also to invite in those from the Battle Creek community into our building. Keep your eye out for more information to come. If you would like to volunteer to help with the event please contact Diane Rome or Ginger Eckhart.
OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD
Operation Christmas Child is an international organization that, through the presentation of Christmas boxes filled with toys and goodies for children in third world countries, shares the love of Jesus Christ. Calhoun Christian’s Key Club teams with Operation Christmas Child to pack and send as many boxes as we can, but we need the CCS families’ help! We need shoe boxes! The more boxes we can use from the school families, the less we have to purchase and can use that money for shipping the boxes. Not only do we need boxes, but we need things to fill them! Starting now, as you shop for school supplies, pick up an extra box of crayons or pencils to send with your kids to school. The more items we can store up, the more boxes we can fill! We have loved watching this program grow over the years and are excited to see what we can accomplish this year!
