Lunch: Fun Lunch Options

Wednesday Fun Lunches are provided by Subway, Chick-Fil-A, Papa John’s Pizza and Malek’s Restaurant (a local restaurant providing a pasta lunch option). We alternate vendors weekly. This program is made possible by the faithful efforts of our Lunch Coordinator and our many parent volunteers.

Fun Lunch works on a semester basis: choose your options for each vendor and place your order once per semester, then receive your selections on the delivery dates shown. Condiments, a small dessert and bottled water are provided.

The Parent Teacher Fellowship is active in supporting ICS in the areas of annual workdays, athletic booster support, hot lunch programs, and fundraising activities. Parents are encouraged to attend the PTF meetings and become involved in supporting ICS and its role in educating and equipping students to serve God.

OUR MISSON

Our mission is to support the ICS administration in various capacities as they fulfill their mission, and to foster good and Christ-like relationships amongst ICS families. Projects we have led or supported in the past include:

  • Back-to-school coffee for parents on the first day of school

MEMBERSHIP

All parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, and guardians are automatically members of PTF. There is no membership process and no dues. If you are part of ICS then you are a member!

VOLUNTEER

We’d love to have you join us! We are always looking for new ideas to improve our school and welcome new volunteers to increase the support for our teachers and students. We are always in need of volunteers for hot lunch, and welcome parents who just want to jump in. The needs vary over time, but an email to the PTF account stating their interest would be welcomed.

Prayer Guide & Prayer Resources

Immanuel Christian School is a vibrant, active community of learners focused on developing the talents and abilities of the individual as well as the group. This is accomplished through a wide variety of academic, athletic and social activities. Our students are given the opportunity to grow and develop in a safe, nurturing environment. Our teachers serve as wonderful role models as they continue to grow in faith and knowledge right alongside our students. Our parents are encouraged to be an active part of our school. Their service and weekly prayer time, called Parents in Prayer, encourages and enhances our school community.

Prayer Guide

For all parents, staff, and friends of Immanuel Christian School, we are so grateful for your prayers for us, as we seek to carry out our mission. We know that prayer is an integral part of our ministry here, and we covet your prayers, that our ministry would indeed be effective for Christ’s Kingdom.

Weather-Related Emergency Announcement Policy

It may be necessary to close or delay the start of school because of ice, snow or other inclement weather conditions. Additionally, school may need to dismiss early due to inclement weather. Information will be sent to parents through Parent Square.

We usually follow Fairfax County Public Schools when they decide to close school or modify school hours for inclement weather, slippery roads, or other reasons. The only condition in which we do not follow Fairfax County is for closings due to warm weather and lack of air conditioning.  All FCPS closing, delay and early dismissal notices will be announced by major TV and radio outlets.

ALL closings, delays, and early dismissals due to inclement weather will be posted on the front page of our website and communicated via an emergency email notification system through our school Parent Square by email and text message. All closing and delay notices will be posted by 6:00 a.m., and all early dismissal notices will be posted by 11:00 a.m.

However, when Fairfax County Public Schools are not in session (vacation days, teacher in-service days, etc.), closing, delay, and early dismissal notices will only be available on the school website and sent via Parent Alert. Parents are asked to update their contact information through our parent portal called ParentsWeb and will be sent notifications as soon as weather decisions are made by the administration.

Extended Care: In the case of late starts, Morning Extended Care will begin 1 ½ hours before the postponed start of school. (For example, if school begins at 10:30am, Extended Care will open at 9:00am.) If school closes early due to weather conditions, Extended Care students should be picked up as soon as possible. The deadline for pick-up from Extended Care will be 1 ½ hours after the early dismissal time. (For example, if school is closes early at 1:30pm, Extended Care will close by 3:00 p.m.).

Below is a chart illustrating various closing options:
