The Bible and New Year’s Resolutions

We encourage all students and parents to consider making a New Year’s resolution to read through the Bible in a year.  All it takes is to read three-and-a-half chapters per day.  See Pastor DeMass for a reading guide checklist to help you in this effort.


Drama Production

The 2016 Covenant High School play under the direction of Mrs. St. John is My Fair Limey. Rehearsals are Mondays and Wednesdays from 2:15 – 4:30 p.m.  Performances will be 7:30 p.m. on March 23rd and 24th.


Scholarship Information

Post-high school scholarship opportunities are presented to college/career classes and posted on the main bulletin board as they become available.  Mrs. Dille also has a scholarship notebook for parents and students to peruse.


Weather-Related School Closures

If weather conditions or other emergencies (earthquake, etc.) appear to call for a possible delay or closure of school, check the website, under “News.”  You may also call the school office, 759-9570, after 6:15 a.m.  If no weather-related information is given, you can assume school will begin at the regular time.
