Welcome to the Parent Portal - your one stop for questions regarding our school calendar, events, fundraisers, Parents as Partners, lunch menu, and our day-to-day happenings. Check here first when you need to know what's going on at FCDS!

Our lunchroom manager is Ms. Trayce DeFrenchi, or "Meema" to many of our students! She has an extensive background in food service and restaurant management, and she is excited to be working with us at First Christian - a place very dear to her heart! The bulk of her menu is homemade and nutritious, and we hope that your kids will be as excited to eat at school as Ms. Trayce is to cook for them!

How To Order:

Monthly lunch menus are available through the above link. Please order lunches for each week by turning in an order form by the WEDNESDAY BEFORE.

Forms are available each week in children's backpacks, and on the entryway table by the front office.

Parents as Partners is our school-wide volunteer program in which parents and families provide items and services we need to help complete events and special days at the school. By helping to offset these costs and time spent working, the PAP program allows us to keep our tuition low, while still offering a variety of fun events and special programs for our students.




Santa's Workshop and Christmas Programs (Thursday, December 12   6:00 - 8:00)

This year, our Christmas Programs will be spread out over the course of one evening on Thursday, December 12. The students will be divided by age level, and each group will perform in the chapel at a different time. This will help alleviate congestion and noise within the chapel itself, as well as in the parking lot. Program dress is "Christmasy" and festive! Your children need to sit with you in the chapel until the teachers call them up onto the stage for their performance. They will then be dismissed from the stage, directly back to your care. Please take note of the times listed below and plan to be at the chapel at this time:

       PreK-2:       6:20 p.m.  (program will start at 6:25)

​       PreK-3:       6:40 p.m.  (program will start at 6:45)

​       PreK-4        7:00 p.m.  (program will start at 7:05)

       Kinder         7:20 p.m.  (program will start at 7:25)

      1st - 8th        7:40 p.m.  (program will start at 7:45) 

Please Note: Families will NOT be allowed to wait or save seats in the chapel until it is time for your child's program. With fewer children performing at once, our hope is that everyone can find comfortable seats near the front without having to wait for long periods of time.

While you wait, you and your family can enjoy:

     * Christmas stories with Mrs. Claus in the Parlor

     * Hot chocolate and Christmas cookies in the gym

     * Book Fair in the gym

     * Christmas crafts in the gym

     * Family photo backdrop in the gym

It is not necessary to stay the whole time, and to do every activity, if your family doesn't want to. Feel free to adjust your family's schedule so that you come and go whenever you are ready. However, one final caution: Be sure to be at or near the chapel on time for your child's performance. Because we are scheduling all the programs in one evening, we cannot wait for more than a few minutes for all the children to arrive.
