Maintaining a Strong Core

Buddy Hucks | Head of School

Recently the SJCS Board of Trustees held their annual retreat to review and update the strategic plan for our school. Mr. Hucks takes a moment to summarize his thoughts and how we strive to maintain a strong core as a community of Christ followers, in an academic setting.

Praying for Our Tigers

Prayer: Lord, give our tigers the strength to not be afraid. Give them courage to stand up for what is right and good in your eyes.  
Scripture: "Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.”" Deuteronomy 13:3

Join the CPTA & Make a Tiger Impact

The CPTA is looking to fill some roles in our community to help raise funds and build awareness. If you are looking for an opportunity to get involved, take a look at these opportunities below and connect with our CPTA team. 

LOGO WEAR: Do you have an eye for fashion? Love to keep things organized and build teams? Logo wear is a great way to raise funds for Student Activities, keeps our community looking good, and raises awareness when worn in public. 

Sports Boosters: CPTA could use extra hands at our sporting events. We have a great new snackshack, thanks to our CPTA volunteers, and now we just need some workers. 

Email the SJCS CPTA (cpta@sjchristian.org) to find out more.
