Cypress Christian School is pleased to offer the After School Program to serve our TK-eighth grade CCS families.

Our mission is to provide safe, supervised care in a loving Christian environment. Children will be grouped by grade categories and engaged in activities that will encourage creativity and social interactions.

For a student to participate in athletics at Cypress Christian School, forms at the link below must be completed and submitted electronically prior to the first practice. Do not give forms to athlete’s coach.

One parent AND the player must read and sign the code of conduct in the Athletic Section of the CCS Combined Policies Handbook, the Acknowledgment of Rules for middle school or high school and Athletic Physical form.

Thank you for considering a donation to Cypress Christian School athletics programs. Donations are vital to the life of any quality athletic program and we appreciate your support.

The school’s dress code is designed to a) promote the decorum and dignity of our academic mission, b) promote unity of purpose within the student body and c) support biblical principles of modesty and distinction of genders. Supporting the school and coming to school each day with clothing in compliance with the dress code is the responsibility of both the student and the parent. Dress code violations will be recorded and repeated violations will result in appropriate disciplinary action.

Students are required to purchase all uniform pieces (shirts, blouses, pants, shorts, jumpers, skirts, etc.) through FlynnO’Hara or Lands’ End School Uniforms. Students may wear blue jeans or uniform bottoms and CCS spirit wear on Fridays.

  • Dress Code Policies

Please take time to review this important document, and feel free to contact your principal should you have any questions about school policies or procedures.

Please keep the following guidelines in mind when deciding whether or not to send your child to school. This will help control the spread of infectious diseases and allow your child to feel their best while at school.

  • If a student has a fever of 100 degrees or more, the student should stay home for 24 hours after the temperature returns to normal.
  • If a student has vomited or had diarrhea two times in a day, the student should stay home for 24 hours after the last episode.

Thank you so much for your attention to this important matter concerning the health of our students.

The Parent Service Organization (PSO) is an enrichment program eager to partner with volunteers who are excited to share their God-given gifts and talents with Cypress Christian School. Volunteers are essential throughout the school year to support the mission and directly impact the lives of students, faculty, staff and administrators.

Whether you are a seasoned family or brand new to the school, have a little time to give or a lot of time to give, there is a place for you to serve your fellow Warriors. The volunteer opportunities are endless. Below are just a few of the areas our families and friends can lend a hand.

Parents:

Permit decals will be mailed to school families before the first day of school. These decals will serve as your preauthorized access to campus. Please remove and dispose of last year’s decals (if applicable). Place the new decal in the upper left of the driver’s side interior windshield (below the tint line, if applicable). In order to enter campus, please enter your access code on the touchscreen panel just outside the Jones Rd. entrance. The access code is available through FACTS Family Portal > School > Resource Documents > Gate Code Letter. More information on permit decals and campus vehicle procedures will be included in the mail-out.

In an effort to simplify the back-to-school process for parents, CCS will provide some of the school supplies for students in the 2024-2025 school year. 

Elementary

In elementary school, CCS will provide school supply boxes for each student in TK through fifth grade. There is no need to order anything; we will have the supplies ready when school starts. 

  • Grades TK-5 – Parents are asked to provide a full-size backpack and water bottle for your student.
  • Grades 3-5 – Parents are asked to provide an ESV bible and a no-bleed Bible highlighter.

 

Middle School & High School

In middle and high school, since it is harder to buy uniform supplies per grade, CCS will provide each student with those items generally required for school, including poster boards, notebook paper, index cards and highlighters. 

  • Grades 6-12—Parents will be asked to provide class-specific items for their students. The shortened list will be provided in a few weeks; however, we suggest that you wait until your child’s schedule is solidified and then purchase the necessary supplies.

Service Hours Requirement

All high school students are encouraged to build a heart of worship through service to their community. A few examples of service include working along with adults in any church or community ministry, lawn/home/pet care for a family friend or a neighbor without pay, volunteering to work in the concession stand during a game or tournament, baking goodies for first responders, or writing letters to service personnel.  Note that service hours cannot be performed for family and no compensation should be received.

Students will use FACTS to track the number of service hours they have earned. High School students must complete 10 hours of service per semester for a total of 20 hours per year. Any graduating senior who has accumulated 200+ hours will be acknowledged at the graduation ceremony.

Service Hours Requirement

One goal of CCS is to help develop godly individuals who are usable for God’s service in His church and in the world. All students are encouraged to develop Christ-like character as they practice serving those around them. 

In order to build the habit of service, all middle school students are required to log at least five service hours each semester. A few examples of service include working along with adults in any church or community ministry, lawn/home/pet care for a family friend or a neighbor without pay, volunteering to work in the concession stand during a game or tournament, baking goodies for first responders or writing letters to service personnel.  Note that service hours cannot be performed for family and no compensation should be received.  Bible teachers will provide more information and provide forms that students will turn in by the end of each semester to verify their service.

Please note that the school will require proof of medical insurance coverage in addition to a sports physical and other athletic department forms prior to a student participating in the school sports/co-curricular activities. Please log in to your FACTS Family Portal and go to School / Web Forms / Family Demographic Form / Student Medical Form and enter your insurance company name, policy number and expiration date. A copy of your insurance card is no longer required.

Elementary Summer Reading

The library is happy to announce our summer reading incentive to keep students reading daily throughout the summer. The challenge is based on the number of minutes a student reads and appeals equally to all ages and abilities. Readers will receive congratulatory medals when we return to school in August. Reading begins May 23. Email Mrs. Parker if you have any questions: [email protected].

  • How to Participate – Color one box on the Minute Log for every 10 minutes you read. There is no time limit to how many minutes you can read in a day, but it is better to read for smaller amounts of time every day than for long periods of time every now and then.
  • Logging Is Important! – Keep track of your Minute Log and return it to school by August 17. The log must be signed by the student and a parent. 
  • What Can You Read? – Students may read books, eBooks, magazines, graphic novels and nonfiction.
  • Set a Goal and Succeed! – Students will receive medals when we return to school in August: 600 minutes=Bronze, 1,000 minutes=Silver, 1,400 minutes=Gold, 1,750 minutes= WOW! If you begin May 23:

20 min/day x 3 days/week = 720 Minutes

20 min/day x 5 days/week = 1,200 Minutes

20 min/day x 7 days/week = 1,680 Minutes

  • Current Kindergarten & First-Grade Parents – It is important for young readers to read independently and also engage in shared reading experiences, as both are critical to the process of learning to read. This challenge is intended to increase your child’s exposure to books and to create positive reading experiences over the summer. Therefore, both independent reading and reading aloud to your child will count towards minutes earned.

Enjoy your summer and happy reading! 😊
