Introducing the New MPCS Eagle Card

 

Spring semester 2022, Mount Paran Christian School will launch the Eagle Card - a new student photo ID card that offers the option to purchase items at any location on the MPCS campus, such as at any concession stand, the Eagles Nest school store, "On The Fly" middle school snack cart, and the Roost coffee shop.

To get started, during the spring semester, middle and high school parents will have the option to “load” the pre-paid Eagle card using the FACTS tuition portal. If a student needs to replace a lost tie or wishes to purchase a smoothie, he or she can use the card to grab one without having to carry cash or a credit card. We are excited to offer this convenient option this year in the upper grades (middle/high), and then school-wide in the future!

ParentEd.: Teaching Fiscal Responsibility to Teens

Did you know the Bible mentions money and finances more than 800 times? Students in middle and high school Bible classes will be discussing how God instructs us to handle money as part of the curriculum. The Eagle Card provides an opportunity for teachers and parents to instruct our teens about the principles of fiscal responsibility.

To help parents Biblically guide your child(ren) regarding how to be responsible with the funds you optionally load onto the pre-paid Eagle Card, be sure to view the recorded ParentEd. session "Teaching Fiscal Responsibility to Teens." AP Economics Teacher Mrs. Syndi Kyle and Assistant Head of School for Christian Life Mr. Steve Kyle provide practical ways to guide teens on their earning, saving, and wise spending of money. They provide tips on introducing children to concepts related to money to learn how to spend within means, as well as Biblical advice you can implement in your home as you begin using the Eagle Card. The Eagle Card will give students a chance to practice these skills in a safe and secure way.
