Mission Trip to Reynosa, Mexico
Over winter break, students from Covenant Christian School had the privilege to travel to Reynosa, Mexico to serve at Big Heart Orphanage. Nineteen people went to serve the ministry in Reynosa by pouring concrete for new sidewalks and investing in the children. We are proud and thankful to have students with servant hearts and a willingness to work in 40-degree rainy weather. Click the following link to watch their video: Mexico 2019 video.mp4

Eagle Pride Representatives
During our recent Homecoming Week, students and teachers selected several students from 6th-8th grade as Eagle Pride Representative Nominees. Nominees are chosen based on school spirit, extra-curricular participation, and demonstration of respect towards God and others. One overall Eagle Pride Representative is then selected from that group. Nominees included: Zoe, Jesse, Olivia (6th grade winner), Gavin, Reagan (7th grade winner), Luke, Lilly, Tatiana, Anne Elise, and Jonathan (8th grade winner). Congratulations students!
Our Junior High music group, J-1:7, went on a field trip to perform at the Mobile Nursing and Rehabilitation Center.

Our Teachers Love You
Our teachers have had a great year so far investing in, loving on, and teaching the students. As our Student Handbook states, “We believe our Creator put us on this earth to teach. We will faithfully teach for His glory and accept our daily successes humbly, knowing that His grace has guided us.” We love our students!
CPR & First Aid Training
As of September 12th, all staff at Covenant Christian School are certified in CPR, AED, and First Aid! This training enables our teachers and staff members to assist in both minor accidents and life-threatening situations. Our goal is to keep our students and faculty as safe as physically possible.
New Assistant Principal
We would like to welcome Mr. Lugo as the new Assistant Principal. Mr. Lugo is excited about working with the staff and students at Covenant Christian School. He is ready to partner with the parents in shaping their child’s future for the plans God has set before them. We are extremely grateful for his time and effort. We look forward to this year of having him on campus with us!
