ALL SCHOOL NEWS..
Please join us for this year’s Harvest Festival, a family-friendly celebration, on Thursday, October 31st, 5:30 to 8:00 p.m. The cost is $5 per person, or $20 for families of five or more. The Harvest Festival will feature food vendors, from which you can purchase food for dinner. We will still have games, inflatables, and yummy complementary goodies for your enjoyment. Please no scary or dark costumes (i.e. witches, ghosts, villians, blood or gore), and no dogs.
CHRISTMAS TREE FUNDRAISER
Christmas Tree Fundraiser packets will be sent home with students on Monday, October 28th. As we anticipate the joy and beauty of the Christmas season, please consider purchasing your Christmas tree, wreathes, swags, or garlands from a Desert Chapel student. All funds raised will benefit Desert Chapel Christian School.
AFTER SCHOOL CARE
While our elementary After School Care program benefits from many activities and games to entertain the students, the middle/high school After School Care program is sorely lacking. If you wish to clean out some space in your home, the middle and high school After School Care program will gladly receive any games, crafts, puzzles, and coloring supplies you wish to donate.
The Desert Chapel Athletics program would love to record the games of the students for the purposes of reviewing the tapes and learning from them. If anyone has a video recorder and/or tripod you no longer utilize, it would be such a blessing to receive for our Athletics program and students.
