How can I stay informed about what's going on at the school?
We use a number of tools to communicate with our families.
Our website is a valuable source of a variety of information.
The ELCA News page has information about current events updated daily.
A weekly announcement and reminder email is sent to families every Monday.
A Calendar of events is located on our website that allows you to search events.
Monthly eNewsletters are emailed to families each month.
Finally, school-specific emails are sent to families to provide important details for events pertaining to certain grades.
If you are not receiving these emails, there could be a problem with your email preferences in FACTS SIS. To have this checked or to update your email, phone and/or address, please email Rebecca Wood.
Does the school have any specific events that purposes to connect families with the administration?
Communicating with our families is a top priority for our academy. We start the year off with a Back to School Day, which is a time to fellowship with our families. New parents are invited to attend an orientation coffee at the beginning of the year. Mid-year, we schedule a State of School address, which is a time to celebrate accomplishments of the school year, and inform families of upcoming plans, including re-enrollment information for the next school year.
Where do I drop off and pick up my child?
To minimize traffic congestion in the mornings and afternoons, we have designated drop off and pick up areas for the different schools available here. To learn more about your child's school car pool plan, please view our car pool page. If you have multiple children in different schools, please contact the specific school's secretary to work out the best plan for your family.
What are the uniform requirements for each grade?
Uniform requirements vary between the different schools. Uniform information and guidelines are listed on the uniforms and supplies webpage. As a convenience to our families, all uniform needs may be purchased at the ELCA Charger Store.
My child lost his hoodie - where might I find it?
Misplaced items are bound to happen in all environments. To aid in recovering lost items, we encourage families to label all items of clothing and supplies. When found, the items can promptly be returned to students. Non-labeled items are taken to school secretaries where they are kept for a short period of time. Please contact your school secretary if your child has misplaced a belonging.
Can I view my child's grades online?
FACTS SIS, provided as a quick link on the footer of the website home page, allows parents to see their child's average as well as specific grades on assignments. Additionally, parents may view their child's class schedule, attendance, conduct history and much more.

What opportunities are there for me to get involved at the school?
Our parents are a huge part of what makes ELCA different than other schools. Involved parents not only provide invaluable assistance in enriching our programs, but more importantly, support their child's sense of self-worth by showing that they care about the child's experience. We welcome our Early Learning and Elementary parents to assist in the classrooms. Parents at all grade levels are encouraged to join our auxiliary organizations - PTF, Fine Arts Patrons, and Athletic Booster Club. Other individual opportunities are available as well. If there is a specific area you are interested in serving, please contact that area's administrator to get "plugged in."
