Parsippany Christian School would like to announce that we are now able to accept credit cards in the office. Since this is a new option, we are still working out some details. 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.
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.

Old Items, but Helpful Information
- This month's topic is "Are You Listening to Your Children?"
- In the past, we have mailed home these Educational pamphlets from the American Association of Christian Schools along with the Monthly Newsletter and Bills. Since we are posting the newsletter online, and billing does not come directly from P.C.S., it is not cost-effective for us to mail these out. If you would like a copy, they are available in the bins outside the school office.
Billing: Any billing questions need to be directed to Miss Erin Hockman. She can be contacted at school Monday through Friday or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Online Payments: Even if you are not setup for Bank debit every month, you can make a one-time payment via Bank debit by logging into your FACTS account.
PCS website: Here, you will find announcements and a summary of weekly and upcoming events on the Home page. Under the "Parent" tab, you will find things such as Supply Lists, the most recent handbook updates, and more. Communication is key to a successful year; so familiarize yourself with the website.

Periodically, we will display the items on a table either in the gym or outside during dismissal--usually at least two days in a row. Items that are not claimed will be added to our Clothing Donation Bins at the back of the school parking lot.

Campbell's Soup Labels & Box Tops: Please clip the Labels and Boxtops for Education off of Campbell Products. The Labels and Boxtops can be redeemed for school equipment.
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.
Signing Out: Parents must sign the "Permission to Sign-Out" form letter, available in the office, each year before your child will be permitted to sign himself out for the day prior to dismissal time. This would typically apply to students who can drive or who live close enough to walk.
Working Papers: High School Students who plan to work are required to get Working Papers. You must see Mr. Detwiler for these papers.
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.
P.E. shorts and shirts: A limited supply is available for purchase in the school office. The shirts are $10, and the shorts are $15.
Once our stock is sold out, we will make P.E. clothing available via landsend.com. Our P.E. shirt stock should last us through the entire 2015-2016 school year. Remember, only 6-12 grades are required to wear our P.E. uniform.
