Re-enrollment:  The re-enrollment fee is now $100 and spots in classes are also open to new families.

Grandparent’s Day: The invitations have been sent to grandparents. March 30th is for 2nd through 12th grade and March 31st is for Pre-k through 1st grade. The time is 12:30pm to 2:00pm each day. Please know that both days are the same program. Feel free to dress in Red, White and Blue or Service Uniform. Photographs will be taken again this year with the students and their grandparents. We are in need of some items for grandparents day. Click here to sign up for an item.

Library Happenings: The 3rd grade class won the winter reading challenge! Forty-five percent of the students participated winning them an ice cream party last Thursday. All students who participated received a Chick-fil-A certificate—a big thank you goes out to the Martinsburg Chick-fil-A for sponsoring our winter reading challenge! March is an exciting month for our library; Erin Mackey, a local author, is visiting the library next Monday to share her books with our students.

Save the Date: Our Auction is April 1st . Looking forward to a great event! Contact Jen Stanley jen.stanley@faithchristianacademy.net or 304-676-8530 if you are interested in joining the committee.

Sicknesses: In an effort to clear up the germs and viruses, we are asking that if your child experiences any of the following symptoms to please keep them home for the day. Symptoms include: Runny nose with yellow/green discharge, nausea/vomiting, sore throat, chills or fever, diarrhea or any other conditions that might be contagious. A student should be fever free for 24 hours (without medication) before returning back to school.

School Emergency Closings: In case of inclement weather, please be advised that we do not always follow the Berkeley County Public Schools emergency closing schedule! Faith Christian Academy will always have its own announcement regarding school closings and delays. We will place announcements in the following media:

School website: www.faithchristianacademy.net (“Quick Notes” along right side of home page)

Radio stations: WEPM (1340 AM) and Lite 97.5

Television: NBC News 25

E-mail: An e-mail will be sent through the Renweb data base – all parents will receive an e-mail alert

Phone Message: Call the school and enter extension 223 for weather related messages. Every attempt will be made to make a call by 6:00 a.m. on the morning of a cancellation or delay. If a two-hour delay is called then parents need to check back and see if a second announcement is made. Again, every attempt will be made to make a call as quickly as possible. On days where weather may prompt an early dismissal, please do not call the school office. Check your email frequently when inclement weather occurs or listen for the radio announcement. The school phone lines are needed for emergency purposes.
