From the heart of your Administrator,
Welcome back to Excel Christian Academy! What a God-blessed beginning to our year. We had a great prestart with Meet-n-Greet Friday, Orientation & Family Picnic Saturday, and a sanctified Sunday to prepare us for the wonderful start of an amazing school year.
CHANGES: Sometimes change can be difficult, but we hope to not make unnecessary changes. The changes we made this year are 1) to ensure greater safety and supervision for our students, 2) to provide clarity in our policies, and 3) to enhance the mission of ECA, which requires us to provide an excellent education consistent with Biblical truth. We are preparing our students for eternity, not just this school year, so we accept the responsibility.
PLEASE BE PATIENT WITH US WHILE WE REVIEW DROP-OFF AND PICK-UP WITH THE 300+ VEHICLES. We are definitely working together on this.
CAR DROP-OFF REMINDERS: Students ARRIVING BEFORE 7:30 must be dropped off at the PRESCHOOL entrance and sign in at BAASTAR (Before And After School Student cARe). Our insurance insists that students be supervised and this can only be done with adults in an assigned place. Regular drop off is from 7:30 - 7:50.
CAR PICK-UP REMINDERS: We put together a system that we think will work rather speedily and safely if parents will follow directions We appreciate your consideration of others.
SCHOOL BEGINS IN THE CLASSROOM AT 8:00 - It takes the children at least five minutes to get to their classrooms and get unpacked. Classes end at 2:45, so please do everything you can to not remove them from instruction early
The first meeting for ARCHERY will be August 28th at 3:00. The participation fee is $50. The team will be competing again this year in the NASP and at the Polk County Youth Fair.
Florida Virtual School will be available to HS students who are ahead of schedule and ready for the challenge beginning in January. More information will be coming.
