Alumni News – October 2021

Warrior Legacy

Elementary teachers welcomed kindergartener Ollie Gates and his family to Cypress Christian School this fall. Ollie is the son of Jessica Van Rieg Gates (’06) and her husband Rusty Gates. He is also the grandson of alumni parents John and Pam Van Rieg (who are currently both on staff at CCS) and the great grandson of CCS founders Gerald and Edith Van Beek (who are in heaven with our Lord). We are so thankful for this family’s CCS legacy and service to our community and our school. We hope Ollie and his family enjoy a year full of Warrior fun and memory making!
