Purchase of a personalized, commemorative tile!
Now that we have officially opened our new activity center, we are also going public with our capital campaign, “Building for Excellence.” This campaign focuses on Students of Excellence, Faculty of Excellence, and Facilities of Excellence. Please consider purchasing a personalized, commemorative tile that will be assembled into a beautiful mosaic to be part of the permanent bench located in the foyer of the new Activity Center. This purchase contributes to this capital campaign, demonstrates your support of the school, and inspires others to do the same!
PCS art teacher, Mary DeClerico, will hand-craft each tile complete with a custom inscription (e.g. your family name, “in honor of…,” or “in memory of…”). We are also challenging each graduating class to collect enough money to buy a custom tile to represent their graduating class (e.g. Class of 1985, Class of 2025). We are hoping class reps will spearhead these projects, collect the money, and order the tiles. If we sell more tiles than can fit the bench, the mosaic will expand beyond the bench.
Directions for how to PUT YOUR OWN PERSONAL STAMP ON OUR NEW ACTIVITY CENTER can be found here.
PRAYER AND SUPPORT
MOMS IN PRAYER
Having children in Christian school doesn’t mean they don’t need prayer. Plumstead Christian School’s Moms in Prayer International prayer meetings are held at our Middle/Upper School at 8:45 AM most 1st and 3rd Tuesdays of each month throughout the school year (please check the “UPCOMING EVENTS” at the top of this Plumstead Campus Connection for dates). Please sign-in at the office when you come to pray. Moms from the Lower, Middle and Upper schools are encouraged to join us whenever you are able. We gather together to pray for our children, staff, board members, and school, to impact them for Christ. Any questions, please feel free to call or text Christy Weaver at 732-610-9828.
Plumstead is blessed to have a group of dads who have committed to a monthly prayer walk around the school to pray for God’s protection over each student, teacher, and staff member. They meet at 6:30 a.m. on the 3rd Friday of each month. For the odd numbered months they meet at the Lower School and for the even numbered months they meet at the Upper School. If you would be interested in joining this group please contact Mrs. Miquel or Mrs. Nusser, and they will forward your name and contact information to the group.
