  • Vision/Hearing Testing

    October 15 and 16

    Our vision and hearing testing by Allegan County Health Department is scheduled for October 15 and 16.  Vision testing is for grades 1, 3, 5, and 7, and will also include our young fives and preschool classes.  Hearing is for grades K, 2, and 4.

  • ParentWeb Update

    Four years ago, RenWeb was acquired by the FACTS company, and last week FACTS launched a new website and began rebranding the RenWeb company to the FACTS name.  


    What does this mean for parents?  

    • The way you log into your accounts will not change.  Your usernames and passwords will remain the same.
    • You can still log into the RenWeb Home app, although you may see new colors and logos in the app.  
    • Your current method of logging into ParentsWeb will work for a short time, but you'll want to start making the switch and logging in at FACTSMgt.com.
    • The name ParentsWeb will be changing to FACTS Family Online.

  • Christian Learning Center (CLC) Onsite Visit

    November 14-15

    On November 1 between 1:30 - 3:00 p.m., parents are invited to speak with CLC representatives about our current educational support system.  This will be three (3) 30-minute increment times with one or more interested participants.  Your comments/questions can be positive or need-to-improve comments/questions.  


    If you would like to come to one of these 30-minute times (1:30, 2:00, 2:30 p.m.), please call the office to schedule.  


    If one of these times is not possible for you, an evening session on November 14 from 8:00 - 9:00 p.m. is an additional time slot if there are enough interested participants.

  • Mini Bazaar Coordinator Needed

    Each year we hold our student Mini Bazaar the first Friday of December.  This is a Christmas shopping day for students to purchase items for family members or friends, etc.   


    We are looking for a coordinator for next year.    If you are interested, please contact Jen Lettinga at lettingajen@gmail.com.  Now is a great time to get started so you can learn the ropes from our current coordinators.  


    Thank you to Christine Sall and Julie Bol for the awesome job they have done in the past!
