Our annual Sports Day is traditionally held during the month of June at Pelham Bay Park. For this event, students and staff members are divided into three teams: Red (Love), Blue (Courage) and Yellow (Hope). The students are then involved in a series of races including the egg & spoon race, the potato race and relay. Along with testing their physical abilities, they are also tested mentally with races such as the math race, the phonics race and the spelling race. Parents and guardians are encouraged to attend this event to cheer on their child/children.
Field trips are planned for their educational value. Notes giving details of the trip will be sent home with a permission slip. It is essential that parents sign this permission slip and return it to the school. No student will be permitted to go on a trip without this permission slip being on file in the office. Parents are normally be invited to participate in field trips, but it should be understood that the supervision of the students is the responsibility of the teachers and they will retain full right to exercise authority in the administration of supervisory and disciplinary measures.
City of Faith Christian School permits and encourages parents/guardians to hold their child’s birthday party at the school. This gives us the privilege of corporate celebration. Birthday celebrations are regularly done during school lunch hours on a Friday. Our birthday routine consists of the “Birthday Song”, a song of affirmation, the cutting of the cake and the blowing out of candles.
Our school choir consists of students within every grade level. They meet regularly within school hours for rehearsal and render selections in many of our school special events. These include our Annual Graduation, Christmas Concert and Spring Concert.
