Izzy Velasquez is a fourth grader at Puyallup Elementary who has been attending CCS since her preschool days. She absolutely loves history and enjoyed learning about the Oregon Trail last year. Her favorite thing about recess is having a best friend since kindergarten to walk around with and “talk about life.” Izzy is known as the little girl with a voice that can fill an auditorium and displayed her talent last year when she sang her favorite chapel song, “We Believe,” in the talent share.
Recently, Izzy’s mom, Stephanie, was diagnosed with MS. She said that your gifts “are helping keep the kids in a Christ-centered education with their friends during this time when I can’t just go and pick up extra shifts.” She continues, “The family is adjusting to the changes day by day and [your gifts] are keeping the kids right where they need to be.”
Thank you for caring so deeply and for recognizing the power of a well-placed gift in a child’s life.
Izzy understands the value of being at a Christian school: “I really like singing in chapel. I feel like through music, the Word of God just touches me more.” This is her life and it would be hard to imagine her having to go anywhere else.
Your gift to tuition assistance helps Izzy stay at the school she loves.
