ALL SCHOOL NEWS..
HARVEST FESTIVAL
Thank you to our parents, students, and staff who volunteered and assisted to make it a successful and fun-filled Harvest Festival experience.

CHRISTMAS TREE FUNDRAISER
Christmas Tree Fundraiser packets have been sent home with your students. As we anticipate the joy and beauty of the Christmas season, please consider pre-ordering a beautiful, fresh-cut Christmas tree, wreath, swag, or garland. You may also donate a tree to a soldier’s family through the “Trees for Troops” program. All orders are due by Friday, November 8th, 2019. Funds raised will benefit Desert Chapel Christian School. Please see attached brochure.

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.

VIDEO CAMERA
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.

VETERANS’ DAY
Monday, November 11th is a non-school day.
