Hello Clewiston Christian High School Students and Parents,

Our first day of school, August 10, is right around the corner and we couldn’t be more excited about the upcoming year!  We wanted to send out a little message to keep everyone informed and help you prepare for the school year.  You will see several categories below explaining some important information.  If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to call our office at 863-983-5388 and we will be more than happy to answer any of questions.

OPEN HOUSE
Open House will take place on August 8th.   The elementary will be from 5:00-6:30 and the middle and high school from 6:00-7:30.  We will have open classrooms from 6:00-7:00 where you can visit the rooms and meet the teachers.  At 7:00 we ask that everyone move to the auditorium where we will introduce the new faculty of CCHS, discuss where we are with accreditation, and share some of the new programs, clubs, and activities that CCHS has to offer for the 2017-2018 school year.

SUMMER READING
Just a reminder that the summer reading has changed for this year.  Each student can read a book of their choice and write a one page summary on the book.  This summary will be turned into their Language Arts teacher the first week of school.  

ACCREDITATION
Clewiston Christian School is in the process of attaining two different accreditations; Florida Association of Christian Colleges & Schools (FACCS) and Florida Council of Independent Schools (FCIS).  FACCS emphasizes religious content whereas FCIS is more academic content.  The King’s Academy was accredited under FACCS but we decided that we wanted to also attain the FCIS to better support our students.  Our faculty is working hard in order to expedite the process so that we will have both accreditations by December.

DRESS CODE
CCHS will be following the same dress code as the elementary school.  Students do not have to purchase uniforms through the school.  The only difference in dress codes is that CCHS students are permitted to wear spirit shirts any day of the week.  We will have school spirit shirts and CCHS jackets available at Open House to purchase.  Student Council will also have order forms to purchase class shirts.  Students are permitted to wear jeans on Fridays if they are wearing some type of spirit shirt (school shirt, class shirt, club shirt, etc.).  Please note that students are permitted to continue wearing The King’s Academy clothing.

SCHOOL SUPPLIES
We apologize for not getting our supply lists out sooner.  We would suggest that you get the basic supplies such as notebook paper, pencils, colored pens, three-pronged folders, highlighters, etc.  We will get these to you as soon as they are turned into us so please be expecting e-mails regarding these lists. 

PHYSICAL EDUCATION UNIFORMS
PE uniforms need to be ordered through the school (once again, students are permitted to wear The King’s Academy PE uniforms also).  The PE shirts are a performance style t-shirt and the gym shorts come with two different in-seams.  The costs are as follows and order forms are available in the office and will also be available at Open House.  Below you will see a link to download the order form as well.  All orders must be turned in the night of Open House.  Only 7th-9th grade enroll in P.E.
