Forcey Christian School Summer Newsletter - Educating students in their lifelong journey for the glory of Jesus Christ

Updates and Happenings

  • Forcey Christian School is excited to introduce our inaugural Strategic Plan. This was truly a collaborative effort, beginning with a team of teacher and staff leaders coming together in the summer of 2022 to brainstorm, discuss, and dream. Work has already begun in several areas, and we will work to be fully transparent with progress as the school year progresses. You can find it at
  • From the Athletic Director: Is your upcoming middle schooler planning to play a fall sport next school year? All student-athletes who desire to participate in any school sport are required to have an annual medical evaluation performed by a licensed physician, certified physician assistant under the supervision of a licensed physician, or certified nurse practitioner. An FCS ATHLETIC PERMISSION FORM is used to submit evidence of this examination. Athletic Permission Forms must be SIGNED by the physician/practitioner and submitted PRIOR to participation or tryouts.

This time of year is so busy. Our to-do lists fill up our minds and it is difficult to slow down and remain calm. During times like these, I’m reminded to focus up on my relationship with my Heavenly Father. The Holy Spirit slows me down and replaces the anxiety with a peaceful sense of calm. I encourage you with these verses today.

Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” ~Matthew 11:28-30

Have a restful weekend!
