 Meetings with Leadership:

There are several opportunities for parents to meet with the leadership of Immanuel Christian School. These are highly recommended for parents to gain a better understanding of the mission of Immanuel Christian School.  These include:

  • Inside Story: Meet the Leadership – A panel forum including an administrator, school board member, teacher, and/or parent.  This is an interactive session answering parent questions and covering philosophical, curriculum and social issues.  This is an opportunity for those who desire a deeper look at our overall program.
  • Just Around the Corner – Scheduled in the spring, this is a parents-only meeting for parents with students entering kindergarten through 4th grade (for prospective and currently enrolled families). This orientation meeting explains the developmental philosophy and classroom expectations for students in the Lower School.
