Punctuality and regular school attendance are very important to good school performance. State law also requires regular and punctual school attendance. We record attendance each day and recognize students with exceptional attendance at the end of the school year.
The Board of Christian Education requires all students to attend a minimum of 160 days out of the 180-day school year. Students who miss more than 20 days jeopardize their promotion to the next grade level and/or must complete makeup work over the summer. Are we required to attend Redeemer Church?
Consistent with the philosophy and objectives of Christian education at Redeemer School, we find church and Sunday school attendance very important. We believe that a regular pattern of public worship is essential to the spiritual development of our children. We note a record of church and Sunday school attendance on student report cards as a reminder of this important parental function. If you do not have a church, we welcome your attendance at our services.
We believe that the way a child dresses directly influences his or her attitude about school. Since school can be thought of as the child's workplace, the way he or she dresses should reflect this philosophy. Our Board of Christian Education, at the request of many school parents and the faculty, requires an official school uniform. Our school uniform offers students choices in the form of colors and styles of clothing while providing consistency, neatness, safety, and a sense of modesty. We want to dress our best out of respect for our Lord. Please review the parent/student handbook for specific information about the dress code.
At this time, we do not offer a hot lunch program to our students. Students must bring their own lunch to school in an appropriate container. We do not make refrigerators, ovens, or microwaves available for student use. Students eat lunch in the Fellowship Hall under teacher supervision.
We offer students chocolate milk, white milk, or orange juice for lunch. Parents and students may purchase a milk ticket at the front office. For safety reasons, we do not allow glass bottles, pop-tab metal containers, or carbonated drinks.
The Parent Teacher League and each classroom sponsor a "special lunch" on Wednesdays and Fridays, which includes of a variety of entrees, dessert, and a drink. We publish menus in advance, and lunches range in price from $2.50 to $4.50. Participation is optional, and students must order and pay for their meal by the preceding Wednesday.
We require all families to volunteer at least 10 service hours each school year. We keep a record of service hours in the school office and reconcile those hours each April 15.
