Elementary School Open House - The very best promotion is “word of mouth,” and we want your help identifying families who might be interested in learning more about LC!  Our Elementary School Open House will be on February 12, 2019 at 7:00 p.m.  We will have staff on hand to answer questions about the classes, curriculum, kindergarten readiness preparation, and tip/helps for paying for Christian education. This will be a great introduction to Lynden Christian School and all we have to offer students and families.  Any contact names I receive will be sent a personal invitation to the Open House where they will hear about the LC Preschool as well as Kindergarten – 4th grade. During this time, we will also share our vision for Christian education. All those who submit the name of a family who might be interested in learning about LC, will be entered into a drawing for a dinner at The Rusty Wagon  and tickets for immediate family to the LCHS musical production of Hello, Dolly! Please email me names and contact information by January 18, 2019!  Contact the Central Office if you have any questions (360) 318-9525 option 4. Thanks!  Note: Another way you can help us to get the word out is to LIKE and SHARE our posts on social media when you see them!   Ezra Stump , Development Director
