Principal's Praise
4/20/2015

Each day as I drive to school and see all of nature in bloom, I think of the Master Gardener. With the great care that God takes in providing nature with a beautiful garden, how much more does He want to be the Master Gardener of our hearts? If we allow Him, God wants to plant roses where there are weeds; He wants to remove the rocks that cause us to stumble; and He wants to water our dry and barren places with His love and blessings. My prayer is that we allow Him to be our Master Gardener.   John 15:1

PDT Information
12/15/2014

The PDT (Parent Developmental Team) is a parent led group formed to raise community awareness of the Christ-centered education offered at the Stafford Campus of FCS. Parents work hand-in-hand with the Campus principal to promote our tie with the Stafford County families, churches and businesses.
The PDT meets once a month  in Room 2 at 8:30 am. Our meetings cover a variety of topics but each one promoting our campus/school in some way. Please contact Mrs. Geyer for more information. 

Remodeling?
11/7/2014

The conference room at the Upper School is in need of new conference room chairs (similar to the ones currently in the room; see picture below). The room sees quite a bit of traffic for things such as board and administrator meetings, parent meetings, club meetings, and department head meetings, to name a few. This past week it was used by the company conducting our annual financial audit.

If your company or agency happens to be remodeling and has some "like new" conference room chairs that we could have or purchase at a reasonable price, please let your campus principal or secretary know.

Because of the variety of people who use this room, we would prefer adjustable chairs that are dark in color (something that will complement our cherry/mahogany colored conference table). Thanks so much for your help!

A Message From Our Superintendent
9/10/2014

In addition to the high priorities of academic development and spiritual growth at FCS, we are constantly vigilant regarding the safety and security of your children. We continue to improve our security monitoring and emergency response standards, and we are always eager to hear any concerns or suggestions from our school families. I'm writing today just to remind you of some of the procedures we have in place in the event of an emergency at or around your child's campus.

In the event of a lockdown, evacuation, extreme weather, a regional event or emergency, or other unusual activity on or around a campus, we will notify our school families as soon as possible and practical. Our primary methods of notification are Honeywell alerts*, email, the FCS website, Facebook, and Twitter.

Parents are certainly welcome to pick up their students (or give permission for student drivers to leave) whenever they feel safety dictates. In the unlikely event that circumstances prevent parents from picking up their children (e.g. an incident near your location or restrictions put in place by local authorities), please know that we will keep your child safely at school with teachers and administrators for as long as it takes for you to get to the campus (even if it means late into the night).

We praise God for His provision of 35 years of safety on all of our campuses, but we recognize the need to be wise and proactive as we consider the times in which we live and as we consider the great privilege we have in caring for your precious children. Thank you for allowing us to help you train and protect your children, and as always, please do not hesitate to contact me or your campus principal if you have any questions or suggestions.
*The Honeywell Alery System is not yet operational for this school year, when it has been updated we will notify you via email and the blog.

Online Student Directory
1/1/2014

Did you know that school families have access to an online student directory through our website? The directory is not available to the public, so you must log in to the website to search for students.

After logging in, click the "Student Directory" tab located on the left sidebar. You may search by student name, homeroom teacher, or grade (please note: all grades at the Stafford campus are preceded with an "S"). After entering your search criteria, click the "Search" button. Once you receive your search results, click the student's name to see contact information for that student.

Please be aware that some families have indicated that they would like their information kept private (either all contact info or just their phone number). In those cases, contact information will not be displayed.
