Start of School Year Info

Theme & School Verse for 2018/19:
Run YOUR Race!”  Hebrews 12:1
Our theme for 2018/19 is taken from Hebrews 12:1 which reads:  “Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles.  And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.”

Take this to heart, Husky Pack.  We are to run with perseverance the race that is marked out for us.  The race you are running is YOURS.  Your audience is an audience of one: Jesus Christ.  Your race is unique.  It  requires commitment.  And the GREAT news is that we are running together.

As you  get ready for the new school year take note of the special start of year information that is listed here.  


  1.  Logging in to OnCampus
    Don’t forget:  each member of your family has a unique set of login credentials.  Parents:  Don’t use your child’s login.  Your login credentials give you parental access which is different than what your child sees.  If you need help logging in, check out our tutorial here or contact Mr. Vander Woude at (219) 838-0356 x107.  If you need password assistance, contact the office.

2.  Tuition Statements & Bus Routes
Your first tuition statement (payment due August 15) will be emailed on August 1.  If you do not receive your statement by email, contact the office asap.

Bus routes will be mailed to families approximately one week prior to the first day of school.
