Theme for the 2023-2024

This school year we will focus on:

The Good News:

Jesus Came

He Died

He Arose

He Ascended

He's Coming Back


We will be celebrating people's testimonies and how they came to know Jesus as their personal Lord and Savior.

News from Ms. Alex in the Office

If your child needs to take any medication during the school hours, please have them bring it to the office, we will administer it from there.

You can call the school at 618-533-6910 or email Ms. Alex at if you have any questions.

Please verify that you have the correct email address for Ms. Alex. I had misspelled crusaders before.

We really are so blessed by her and her presences in the office. I have seen her praying with students, showing them how to tie their shoes, and just loving on students. She is the best!!

Sweet Treats-What is this?

I've been asked, "What are sweet treats?" Great question.

This is something that our 8th grade class sells on Fridays during lunch. The cost is $1. 8th grade students/parents are responsible for bringing in treats. ALL the funds raised goes towards their 8th grade class trip and an 8th grade class legacy project. Past legacy projects are the gaga pits and a donation to purchase swings. Last year's class, is making a donation to whatever this year's class decides on.

This is an optional thing.
