Pizza and Hot Lunches: The pizzeria we used last year closed, and the new pizzeria we are using is not able to give us the same price break. Thus, pizza will be $2/slice this year. In addition, to make hot lunches profitable to the Senior and Junior classes, it is necessary to make hot lunches $4 each. Pizza is sold any day there is not a hot lunch. Generally, hot lunches are Tuesday and Thursday starting 2-3 weeks into the school year.

Faculty Update

As many know, the Lord has directed Mr. and Mrs. Berry to begin preparations for Seminary Training, and Miss Berry got married this summer. In addition, Mrs. Rivera found it too difficult to travel the long distances for teaching Spanish. So, unfortunately, we have needed to make some replacements in our faculty.

Parsippany Christian School is pleased to announce the following replacements:

Mr. John Celano, father of Emily and Danny in 3rd grade, will be teaching some Middle School and High School history. He has a History degree with a Political Science minor from Montclair State University.

Mr. James VanRiper, Jr., a 2010 P.C.S. graduate, will be teaching Middle School and High School Math and some English. He has a Humanities degree with a Mathematics minor from Maranatha Baptist University.

Mrs. Gretel Kenniff, mother of Zachary in 2nd grade and Oliver in Pre-K, will be teaching 6th and 7th science along with Accounting. She has a Biology degree with a Psychology minor and an M.B.A. in Finance and Marketing from Saint Louis University.

Mrs. Maria Izeppi, mother of Estela in 11th grade and Erwin in 8th grade and Enzo in Kindergarten, will be teaching Spanish I and Spanish II. She has three years of coursework in Early Childhood Education from Hudson County Community College. She will also be assisting as a Teacher’s Aide in various classrooms.

Miss Susanna Smith will be teaching fourth grade beginning in January. She will have a degree in Elementary Education from Bob Jones University. Until mid-October, third grade and fourth grade will be co-taught by Miss Michelle Mann and Mr. John Emr. Mr. Emr, a retired public school teacher, assisted us last year in completing the year for Mrs. Berry. He has a previously scheduled commitment for a number of weeks beginning in mid-October. So, from mid-October to Christmas Break, Mrs. Izeppi will assist Miss Mann in the classroom. Except for Bible, the curriculum’s will remain separate so Miss Smith can continue on with the fourth grade in mid-January.

Mrs. Detwiler will be teaching fifth grade except Bible and Math.

A detailed schedule of Fifth Grade and Middle School and High School classes along with teachers will be posted sometime next week.

General Announcements
    • Sports Physicals: All sports physicals must be submitted before participating in practices. Anyone who does not have a current physical on file needs to submit a copy before the sports season. For soccer, it should be submitted the first day of school. Each physical is valid for one year, and you cannot get a new physical until the old one has expired. It is your responsibility to keep track of the expiration date of your previous physical and to schedule a physical near the expiration date. Keep in mind that it may take 1-2 weeks to get into the doctor’s office. So, please schedule your appointment ahead of time in anticipation of the expiration date.
    • Reminders from the School Nurse: 1) All new students must submit a current immunization record. 2) An updated immunization record is needed for all students in the 1st, 6th, & 9th grades. 3) All sports physicals must be submitted before participating in practices. 4) Any information regarding summer injuries and/or illnesses that may compromise your child’s physical activities must be submitted to the school nurse. 
    • Please remember to turn in your registration packets. They are vital to preparation planning for the new year including faculty and book orders. 
    • Please continue to pray with us as we seek out faculty members for next year. The Lord has provided some prospects. So, pray for His will to be done as we make decisions in the next month or so.
    • Registration: Please complete your Registration Papers for next year ASAP. This helps us plan and budget for next year.
    • Withdrawal: Any students who withdraw from PCS on or after August 10, 2016, will be charged the full month's tuition.
    • We have some new school flyers for advertising the school. Please consider giving one to a friend who would want a Christian education for their child. In addition, please consider asking your Pastor if you would be able to leave a few on a table or rack of literature at your church. Copies of these flyers are available at the school office.


      About Us


      Since 1970, Parsippany Christian School has been one of the key ministries of Parsippany Baptist Church. Conveniently located near the junctions of Route 10, 46, 80, and 287 in Morris County in Northern N.J., Parsippany Christian currently consists of about 164 students. Our goal is to assist and thus to partner with parents in their biblical role of both academic and spiritual education by offering a superior core education that encompasses both in a Christian worldview. Our faculty is dedicated to both sound academic instruction as well as to godly mentorship. The end goal is to train the next generation of Christian young people who will demonstrate biblical wisdom by surrendering their lives to the will of God and who will serve as a witness and testimony for Him in their community whether that be in the secular workforce or in full-time ministry.

      Credit Card Purchases 

      We are now able to accept credit cards in the office. At this time, we are able to accept credit cards in order to pay for tuition or any other FACTS related charges, gym clothes, and ShopRite gift cards. 

      -There will be a 2.75% Processing fee for any purchases relating to FACTS or gym clothes. 

      -A 1.50% Processing Fee will be charged for any purchases relating to ShopRite gift cards. This means P.C.S. is absorbing 1.25% of the Processing Fee thus decreasing our donation from ShopRite. So, we still encourage purchasing ShopRite gift cards via cash if possible.

      At this time, we are not able to take any Chip Cards. We are looking into being able to accept chip cards in the future.
