Welcome Home School Families
Thank you for checking out our Family Fitness Challenge 2017!
As you know by now, this October, Ygnacio Valley Christian School will be hosting a Family Fitness Challenge. It begins in the first week of October when students in our PE classes will be attempting 5 fitness challenges, recording results and then setting goals they want to reach by the end of the month. Throughout the month students will then participate in fitness training toward those goals. During the final week of October students will be tested to see if they reached their goals and awards will be given to the top performers in each event.
Your student is invited to join YVCS for our PE classes during the month of October and join in on the challenges along with our students. There is no cost for students who want to participate in the program. The hope is that this event challenges every student and family member at their own ability level and helps us to be "Fit For His Purpose" (2 Timothy 2:21).
Participating students will need to go through a brief and abbreviated enrollment where we collect emergency contact information and a liability waiver. Please contact the YVCS office to set the up (925) 798-3131.
PE class schedules are as follows:
Kindergartners & 1st graders meet daily Monday through Friday from 1 - 1:30pm
2nd & 3rd Graders meet Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 12:40 - 1:10pm

The Saturday following the fitness challenge week (October 28th) YVCS will be hosting a 5K COSTUME RUN that begins and ends on the YVCS campus located at 4977 Concord Blvd. Following the 5K there will be an abundance of post-race festivities including games, food, music, bounce houses and of course and awards ceremony to honor those who worked so hard to reach their fitness goals. Please plan to bring out the whole family for the festivities and to cheer on your students for their hard work in training toward their fitness goals!
This event is a fundraiser for YVCS and we are looking for people who are willing to sponsor our participants and the event in general. If you know anyone who might want to sponsor this event or be a vendor during the family Funfest please have visit this website.
Finally, because this is a fundraiser, we are hoping you will consider partnering with us in this effort. We are suggesting a donation of $100 per student for this program, although no money will required at any point in the process and your will not be pressured to give when you sign up. If you would like your student to gather sponsorships from family and friends to encourage them through this campaign you are welcome to gather your donation through our online e-mail campaign through eTeamSponsors.
Thank you again for joining us in this effort to make our Christian families "Fit For His Purpose." See you in October!
