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.

We are in need of a parent volunteer to serve lunch on Mondays for the rest of the school year. Contact Michelle Ostrander or Stephanie Stemaly if interested.

Our annual scholarship matching challenge has begun. Please visit our website for more information. This matching challenge enables us to welcome many families that are otherwise unable to afford private Christian education. Any amount is appreciated.

**Spring Cleaners!!! The art department is looking for pint size glass canning jars, with the regular mouth size. Wide mouth will not work. But if you have any empties in your basement or garage, we would love to have them for our Mother's Day project which we will be starting after Spring Break. If you have the rings (lids not needed) for them, that would be great as well! We are asking that they are clean and not chipped or cracked. If you have any and are willing to donate, you can drop them at school after spring break, or call or text Michelle Woodard at 269-589-2405. Thanks!!

The Senior class, in 5 weeks, will be leaving for a mission trip to the Dominican Republic. If you are able to donate any of these items, it will help the team as they minister there.
