Please pull forward all the way through to the North parking lot to drop off and pick up your student. Do not stop in the front of the building (even right past the Pull Forward Please sign). PLEASE do NOT use the faculty parking lot on the south side as your personal pick up/drop off location. The church asks that you NOT use their parking lots as your carpool or parking lot unless you have special permission. Please see the seminary teachers if you feel you are the exception to their rule. Thank you for your cooperation in helping us keep our students safe and in being good citizens to our community.

Reporting Your Volunteer Hours/Donations
Did you donate items for Winterim or MSI? Don’t forget to report your volunteer hours: Report Parent Service Hours. Each $5 spent for donations counts as one hour of volunteer service!
Eligibility for winter sports (basketball, wrestling, swimming) and activities will now be based on 2nd term grades for all grade levels. If you are planning on playing a spring sport (boys soccer, boys tennis, track & field, middle school girls soccer, middle school boys volleyball) your eligibility will also be based on your 2nd term grades.
Students (7th-12th) must earn a 2.7 GPA with no Fs/NGs. In addition, high school students cannot have any Fs/NGs/Incompletes from previous high school terms. If the F/NG/Incomplete is made up by the beginning of the sports season they will be able to participate.
