1. Dates To Remember:


  • 2 - Chapel - 8:30 AM.  Parents and friends are always welcome to attend. We will also be having a short video on Operation Christmas Child.

  • 14 - Columbus Day - No school

2. Student Dismissals:

If students are being dismissed early, a parent or guardian must inform the office of the date and time. Messages should not go to the teachers and should not be communicated by students.

In addition, all visitors must enter and report to the office. Please follow this protocol so that all students will be safe here.

3. Fall Fundraiser:

This catalog sale will end on October 9. We cannot extend it because the holiday delivery date depends on this close out date. Please do your best to help with fundraisers so that we can keep tuition as low as possible.

4. Operation Christmas Child:

Don’t forget to send in the gifts for this worthwhile mission up through October 25th. (See separate letter for details).

5.Canned Goods Drive:

We are holding our annual canned goods drive for the Bristol County Veterans from October 28-November 15. Non-perishable food items may be dropped off in your child’s homeroom each day. In addition, this year, we are also collecting items like toothpaste, socks, deodorant, etc. Please take time to bless a vet and pray for those who are serving in the military. Homerooms will be competing with each other to see who can bring in the most food.

6. Scrip:

We will be restarting the Scrip gift card program on October 11th. These are gift cards from over 50 stores, including supermarkets, restaurants, gas stations, major box stores, and more.  If you give gift cards for the holidays, or buy groceries regularly, this fundraiser will make your life easier and raise money for EGCA.    More details to follow soon.

7. Enroll A Buddy:

You could earn $100.00 by getting a new student to join our EGCA family. Recommend the school to people you know; if a new student enrolls because of your recommendation, you will receive a check for $100.00 at the end of term 1…just in time for your Christmas shopping.

8. A+Bonus Bucks:
