In addition, our approved school uniforms can be ordered through Lands’ End or Backstage Graphics. The CHCS member number for Lands’ End is 900048828. You can also get shirts from local stores and have our logo placed on them.
K4 - 5th grade school supplies will be purchased by the school and billed through FACTS.
6th - 12th grade school supply lists will be updated in July and can be found under parent resources on our website.
After-school care is available Monday-Friday until 5:30: After-School Care
Hot lunches at CHCS are provided by outside vendors. You will be notified after the start of the school year regarding which vendors are being used for the current year. Hot lunch ordering is available one week each month, and orders are placed for the upcoming month Steps to Order Lunches. Of course, students can always bring lunch from home, and you may come to eat with your student anytime!
Morning and Afternoon Drop Off:
Our school day begins each day at 8 a.m. The doors open at 7:30 a.m. to begin receiving students, and students are considered tardy after 8 a.m. Please drop K4 and K students off in the line closest to the building to help ensure their safety. Upon drop-off, the Grammar school students will enter the cafeteria and gather with their class to begin their day, while Logic and Rhetoric students will pass through the cafeteria and meet in the gym.
Afternoon carpool begins at 3:15 p.m. for Grammar School and 3:35 p.m. for Logic and Rhetoric students (and their younger siblings) every day except Wednesday. Wednesday is an early release day for our school to provide families with a little extra time on an evening that involves church activities for many in our community. On Wednesdays, the afternoon carpool begins at 2:25 p.m. for Grammar School and 2:45 p.m. for Logic & Rhetoric schools. If you arrive to pick up your student more than 15 minutes after their designated pick-up time, you are considered late and will need to park and come in to check out your student. If someone else is picking up your child, please call the receptionist before carpool to let her know who will be picking up your student.
Students in grades K4-8th participate in PE twice a week, while students in 9th-12th have Athletics classes. Beginning in 5th grade, students will wear a PE uniform that can be ordered online from Backstage Graphics. Additionally, 3rd and 4th graders will be asked to purchase a PE shirt when participating in our area-wide Fall and Spring Relays. Also, athletic fees for 6th-12th graders playing sports are billed through FACTS at the start of each season.
Suggested Reading is available for parents/grandparents who wish to learn more about the classical education model and Biblical virtues CHCS values. We love to share great books with our parents and hope they help and encourage you to understand the aim and philosophies at CHCS.
