Are You Ready?

Our annual "All School Retreat" is a couple of weeks away. We take this retreat each year with a goal of creating community within DCS as well as setting up our year with a time of worship and spiritual growth. For many students this is one of their fondest memories here at DCS.
Retreat Speakers 

High School: Jody Livingston, Student Pastor, Kennesaw First Baptist Church
Middle School: Chad Cannon, Christian speaker at camps, retreats, churches, etc.

Middle School News
Middle School Mentors

Sixth-grade girls have the opportunity to eat lunch every Thursday with volunteer eighth-grade big sisters or "Mentors." This year is the third year of the program led by Mrs. Hirschler.  The 6th grade girls interact each week with one, two or three mentors that they choose early in the year for the entire school year.  The relationships that result are impactful, supportive and create a community that spans across grade levels.
Alumni News
Congratulations to Alumni Donavan Ellison.

Donavan had a very successful freshman campaign running track at the University of Memphis.  Donavan was among the top in the American Athletic Conference, and only looks to improve on his impressive freshman debut.  Donavan did not limit his success at Memphis to the track.  Donavan was named to the University of Memphis "Tiger 3.0 Club."  This club is for athletes that have achieved a 3.0 GPA or better.
Welcome Back Alumni

Our annual Homecoming game is Friday, September 11.  Each year we welcome back our alumni and have a tent with food for them where they can hang out, fellowship with teachers and old friends, and eat! This has become a fun tradition for them and many look forward to returning year after year.
Each year we ask for donations of food or money to help feed them!  If you are able to help in any of these ways, please let me know as soon as possible.  Thank you so very much - our alumni are always so grateful that the parents provide this for them.
Needs -
*2 trays of Chick-fil-a chicken nuggets
*2 trays of Chick-fil-a chicken strips (or Publix chicken strips)
*2-3 platters/plates of pinwheel sandwiches
*2-3 fruit trays
*2-3 veggie trays
*4-5 trays/plates of brownies, cookies
*3-4 cases of bottled water
Also, any monetary donations are appreciated so I can purchase napkins, plates, utensils. If you are able to bring any food items, I need them brought to the school that Friday between 6:00-7:30 pm.

Support the DCS Rewards Programs
Parents, we have added another simple way for Dominion to earn money through a new rewards program. The Amazon Smile program will donate .5% on eligible purchases to Dominion Christian Schools for those who participate in the program. To get started, you must shop through their Amazon Smiles site: http://smile.amazon.com/ instead of the traditional Amazon site.  Once on this site, search for "Dominion Christian Schools, Inc" Marietta, GA and choose our school as the beneficiary. You will then shop as usual (all products/prices are the same as the regular amazon site). If everyone participates, the .5% will add up to a respectable donation for Dominion. Last year you all helped our school raised approximately $1000 from box tops, coke rewards, and labels for education. Thank you so much for your continued participation in all of these programs!
