Families of Calvary Christian School students can sign up to be part of OneCallNow, an automated telephone message delivery system, so that they can receive alerts from the school.
To add phone numbers to the system in addition to the family’s primary phone number, go to the school’s Web site, www.ccsspartans.com, and click on the “Add/Correct Contact Information for CCS” link by the OneCallNow logo on the bottom of the homepage.
Individuals then will be directed to a page where they can look up their personal information and make telephone additions, deletions or changes.
CCS also has been receiving some reports that for some families, the message left on their voicemail by OneCallNow is being cut short. This problem is likely caused by pauses within the person’s voicemail greeting.
Officials advise families that they might want to re-record their introductory voicemail greeting and get rid of any pauses.
Those who receive a cut off message can hear the entire message by calling (877) 698-3261. Then enter “1” and primary phone number to be directed to the message.
In other CCS news, the school has started a middle school golf team, which is part of the Logan County Middle School Golf League. Because of the interest, a golf team will be open to high school students next year.
Golf team members are Tyler Franz, Daniel Wilt, Cole McDaniel, Austin Durnell, Robert Taylor, Noah Taylor, Derek Markley, Christian West, Isaiah Brady. They are coached by Paul Green.
Also, the eighth-grade science team will visit Kiser Lake for two days to study what God has created and apply the findings to their science class. The next two-day science adventure will be for the 7th-grade class members.
Former county auditor, Mike Yoder, recently spoke about financial literacy to the eighth-grade class at the school.
One of the topics covered by Mr. Yoder includes the concept of taxation and how taxes help to pay for certain items in the county. He brought a Logan County Sheriff’s Office patrol car to the school to show students an example of taxpayer money at work.
A photo of students with Mr. Yoder and the patrol car appears on the Examiner Web site, www.examiner.org.
