Dear VCS Families,
We had a fantastic Open House last night! There were at least 21 families here to check out VCS! When asked how they became aware of our Open House, we heard the following: direct invite from a friend, 91.9 The Family Christian radio, a post card sent from the school, a church visit presentation about VCS, recommendation/advertisement at their preschool. We are so thankful for the new families that will join us next year.
With that being said, we encourage you to finish up your re-enrollment information and get signed up to reserve your seat in next year’s class. This helps us make plans with faculty and with curriculum so that we are prepared.
Growth in our student body, enables us to offer more for everyone. I love our school and we have the finest teachers anywhere who love the children God gives them each year. We truly partner with you in the education of your child.
In His Service,
From Mr. Masseth
As some of you may have already heard, I have accepted the position of head administrator at Community Christian School in Willmar, Minnesota for the 2015-2016 school year. This means that my wife and I will be moving back to Minnesota on July 1st. I have enjoyed serving you and your children for the past six years. I absolutely love VCS and my decision to leave has nothing to do with anything other than a door being opened up for us to return to a school that I served at for eight years prior to joining VCS. It is clear to us that God is moving us back to this school where I will also be closer to my family. My wife and I will always cherish the time spent here in Oshkosh. We will miss all of you very much and will look back on these years with fondness. Thank you for the opportunity to serve you all.
Steve and BoLynda Masseth
The Classes of 2016 & 2017 invite you to attend the Community Carnival to be held Saturday, February 7, 1-3pm at Valley Christian School. There will be carnival games for ages 12 and under with some games dedicated specifically to ages 5 and under! A flyer was sent home in Elementary Friday Folders. Be sure to keep an eye on your Friday Folder the next couple weeks for a special surprise!
Auction Bulletin Board
We need your help securing auction items for this year. We have created the auction retailer bulletin board again this year in the front hallway. We are asking families to help us secure items for the auction by approaching local businesses that have donated to our event in the past as well as adding some new retailers this year. Here is how it works:
Check out the special bulletin board in the front hallway near the double doors by the kindergarten room. We have displayed a wide variety of retailers for people to choose from. If you know someone who owns one of these businesses, or you frequent their establishment, you would be the perfect person to approach that business(es).
Take the number of index cards that you can approach within the next 10 days. Under each index card, there is a label for that business. Sign your name on that label so we know who took the index card. If you have time to approach more, please take them. Just make sure that you are able to follow through. Take a retailer donor letter for each index card taken. Many retailers require something in writing when you are making a request.
Make your contact within 10 days and follow up with those businesses as needed. Please have all items to the school by March 9th. They can be turned into the front office or the Business office.
Please join us in making this our most successful auction yet. Thank you in advance for your help. All questions can be directed to Carey Holtz @ 231-9704 x. 20 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Family Fun & Food Night
We want to thank everyone for coming out to the Family Fun & Food Night on Tuesday. It was a great night and everyone had a blast. The games in the gym were very entertaining and the varsity boys’ basketball team walked away with their first win of the season. The Soup/Chili fest was a huge success. It was our most profitable one to date. Stacey Schiek was the winner of the cook-off and she rustled up an outstanding Taco Soup. Congratulations! Thank you to everyone that made soups, chili, and desserts for that night. It was greatly appreciated. Also, thank you to everyone that helped out during the event. We couldn’t have done it without you.
Priority Re-enrollment is OPEN
It is time to secure your seat for the 2015-16 school year. Please take a few moments and fill out the online re-enrollment information. A $50 discount on the registration fee is available through the month of February. Currently we have in-house re-enrollment going on and you can guarantee your seat until February 1. At that time, new families will have the same opportunity to claim available seats in each grade. Please read the re-enrollment instructional letter here.
In addition to the online portion, there are two forms for you to sign and return. These forms (including the tuition and fees schedule) are available for download here as well as on Sycamore at the end of the online process. We are so thankful for what God is doing in and through our school.
As happens throughout each season, especially basketball, game dates and times can change. Please check the Athletic schedule OFTEN!! Go to valleychristianoshkosh.com. Click on the “Athletics” tab toward the top of the page. Then click the “2014-2015 Athletic Calendar” button. You will see the week’s activities from that screen.
