Exciting Upgrades to our Annual Jog Fundraiser!

September 14, 2017
By Faith Christian School

The 39th Annual FCS Jog Fundraiser has been upgraded with more color - more prizes - more fun - and more easy methods for sponsors to donate!

This annual enterprise helps to make quality Christian education a reality for children in our community.  Thank you for supporting our ministry.

Sponsors can now donate to any student's goal online and on our FCS App:

Click here to sponsor a student in the Color Run or Jog-a-thon!

When the form loads, select the grade of the student you would like to sponsor and then the name of the student from their grade list.  Complete the rest of the quick and easy form, submit,  and your student earns points toward awesome prizes and awards.

If a sponsor prefers to donate via cash or check, students are ready to help with that process.  Donations can also be received at either office or by mail (see P.O. Box at the bottom of the page).  All donations help your student earn awesome prizes and rewards!

Students will be working together as a class to earn an ice cream reward and class party bucks to use for doughnuts, silly string wars, pizza, or whatever they choose - the ideas have been swirling around!

Individually, students can earn their 2017 jog t-shirt, silly spirit wear, the opportunity to be a color blaster at the FCS 5K Color Run (see below) and the grand prize: turning an FCS staff member into a sundae by covering them with chocolate syrup, whipped cream, sprinkles and or course - a cherry on top!  Our students are very excited about what they can earn with their sponsor points!

More color: The 2017 Jog t-shirt "With Wings Like Eagles" inspired by Isaiah 40:31 is white because the students will be filling them with color!  Our elementary students will get to tie-dye their shirts at school if they earn 200 points by Monday, Sep. 25th.  We are excited to see what designs our kindergarten - sixth grade artists create!

Our jr. high and high school students will have their shirts covered in bright hues in our first ever FCS 5K Color Run!  Students will be showered in colored powder as they run around our FCHS track on Thursday, October 5th.  Thank you to Dr. David Bradley of Bradley Optometry for providing Spirit Shades for our students to wear during our Color Run.

Friends and family are welcome to join us for the Jog-a-thon and Color Run: click more event info.

Please join us in thanking our 2017 business sponsors that are printed on the back of our jog t-shirt.

See you at the track!

Snippets from Kindergarten

Kindergarten students are off to a great start!  This class of 29 is growing by leaps and bounds each day. Students have quickly learned about the expectations and procedures of the school setting and are ready to begin small group stations next week.

Today's excitement was adding scissors and a glue stick to our pencil bags! This allowed us to cut and paste in order the days of creation as well as craft our own Mr. Potato Head as we finished our unit on the five senses. Keep an eye out for our creations coming to the elementary hallway soon.

This fall reap a harvest of “love, laughter and tenderness” as the FCS Players bring back one of Yuba-Sutter-Colusa and Butte County audience’s favorite musicals for their 25th Anniversary season – Quilters!
 
Show Dates: November 9th and 10th at 7:00 pm and November 11th at 1:00 pm

 

This award-winning and heart-warming musical tells the story of America’s pioneer women and their families through song, dance, comedy, heartfelt dialogue and through the medium of “the women’s domestic art” – the beautiful quilts they created to “keep cover on their families for generations!” Audience members of every gender and every age will find themselves laughing, crying and deeply connecting with what FCS Players Producer/Founding Director Paul DeMeritt describes as “Possibly the most powerful, wonderful and inspiring small musical ever written! A true testament to love, hope and faith!”

Quilters will feature 1985 FCHS alumnus Sheryl (Gray) Seino as mother and matriarch Sarah McKendree Bonham and Olivia Allen, Brianna Brennan, Bridget Coggins, Lydia Crist, Anna Davis, Kaitlyn Friemark, Gillian Greathouse and Kaylin Murray as her daughters and David Wickline, who will play numerous roles as one of the men of the prairie.

Assistant Directors Anne DeMeritt, Lydia Crist and Hailey Warta will help stage and coordinate the show, FCS Players Musical Directors Lana Dodd and Jeff Poppinga will collaborate to teach and create the glorious instrumental and vocal music of the production.

Quilters will also feature the unveiling of the amazing 12 X 12 foot “Legacy Quilt,” created in 1989 by the Pajaro Valley Quilt Association for Mr. DeMeritt’s first production of Quilters during his tenure as Director of Theatre Arts for Bethany University in Santa Cruz – a show in which Sheryl Seino played one of the daughters! In addition, FCS parents and grandparents along with members of the Valley Quilt Guild and the First United Methodist Church Quilters will contribute their talents, time and support to help the actresses experience quilting first hand and to create personal quilt blocks and costumes for each cast member!

All in all, Quilters promises to be a life-changing experience! Performance dates are Thursday, November 9th and Friday, November 10th at 7:00 pm and a special Saturday matinee, November 11th at 1:00 pm. at the First United Methodist Church Theater, 3101 Colusa Hwy, Yuba City. Ticket information and reservations will be available soon - don’t miss Quilters!
