Words of Edification

oday’s workers and students face much adversity. Much of that adversity starts in high school with verbal forms of bullying. Calvary has always had a no tolerance policy against any form of mean or inappropriate name calling with the students. God says to be imitators of Him;and if we are not using kind, decent words on each other, then how do we praise God?

On the “Record”er

Another school year has started, and with it comes not only a lot of homework, but also fun classes like PE and music. This year, because of the extra challenges posed by distance learning, the two choir teachers, Mrs. Butler and Mrs. Mattish, have decided to have a recorder choir for the older grades instead of a normal singing choir.

State of the ‘Nation’

This year, Timothy Butler, Allyson Butler, and Camille Mattish all flew out to Bob Jones University in South Carolina, where they performed for AACS Nationals. The national competition is hosted by the University every year and organized by the national association which is comprised of Christian school state associations. Only the first-place winners at the individual state competitions qualify to perform at Nationals.

Fine Arts Competition: The Making of Memories

Another year of GSACS competition has come and gone for the high school and junior high students of Calvary Christian School. February 28 and March 1 of 2019 were two very full days for the students as they competed against other students from different Christian schools across the state of California down in Santa Maria, California, where the competition is held.

Field Trip Explorations

Early in February the elementary students here at Calvary Christian School were treated to a field trip. The students were able to tour Gilroy Police Department and were accompanied by several Peace Officers. The Police Officers showed no end of patience and knowledge as they answered the children’s questions and showed the students around the facilities. The students were able to observe the amazing work done by the 911 call-center staff. 

One Down in the Books

Calvary Christian School’s basketball teams played for the first time this school year on February 11. Both teams, boys’ and girls’, fought hard and feel confident as they move forward. With continuous practice and more games, the teams will only be getting better going into the future.

A State of the School Address

As a new year kicks off, taking stock of the previous year’s happenings is very wise. November and December of 2018 were especially busy for Calvary Christian School. During this time the school hosted Christmas Programs, setup a fire victim fundraiser, gathered food bank donations, and much more. The school’s teachers and students are very pleased to have had a small part in collecting food to help low-income families and in raising funds for the victims of the fires in California.
