Support Group Policies

  1. Code of Conduct: We ask that all show deference to other members of the group in areas of dress, music, and language as seen in our Code of Conduct guidelines. This is a Christian ministry that may include non-Christians who join us in our desire to build character and relationships. We ask that  for group events thought is given as to how each of us can build each other up without drawing undue attention to ourselves.
  2. Dating at group events: Excalibur does not believe that the normal type of teen dating is God’s plan for finding a life mate nor for learning how to socialize with the opposite sex. During events sponsored or supported by Excalibur, we do not permit any pairing off or intimate contact by unmarried Excalibur members or their guests with non-family members. The Administrator or designated staff member(s) will have final authority on the acceptability of conduct at all school or school related events. Of course, each family makes its own decisions about dating in other contexts.
  3. Statement of Faith: Excalibur is operated as a ministry arm of Christian Community church and as such we ask you to conduct yourselves in a manner that honors the Christian Community Statement of Faith. (This does not mean that you must adhere to the statement of faith as a confession of your personal faith, but that you must respect it as the statement of faith that guides Excalibur, that you will not attempt to undermine that statement of faith by deprecating it to others, and that you will not attempt to introduce doctrines contrary to that statement of faith outside of a proper context. A proper context would be defined as adult-with-adult discussion, or student in class debate, when proper.) If any element of the Statement of Faith needs clarification, Excalibur families are encouraged to contact the pastor of Christian Community.
  4. Loss of Membership: At the administrator’s discretion a family may be removed from membership in order to maintain the peace and harmony of the Excalibur family.

Some of us may have learned to read just by having books read to us as a child.  Most however, needed some instruction and modeling as well as constant practice in order to master the various skills necessary to comprehend well.  We have found that character development is the same.  It usually needs to be carefully taught and modeled.

Group Standards

We believe in the family as the foundation for all socialization, including boy/girl relationships of all ages, and expect that each family will supervise their children in that area.  We also find that as families meet together, a healthy environment for interacting with others, both older and younger, is created.

We encourage students to devote their youth to the Lord and their families.  In keeping with this, our policy for all events is no pairing off of unmarried couples or flirtatious behavior.

Love and respect for others is Jesus’ prescription for successful relationships.  Some ways we work on that in Excalibur are by encouraging enthusiasm, gratefulness, obedience and attentiveness in actions and speech.  No swearing or inappropriate language will be tolerated.

Dress for Success

Character is displayed in appropriate dress.  This area is a vital training ground for many of the qualities Excalibur parents want to instill in their young people.  To aid all of our families, the following are keys to understanding the spirit of our dress code.

  1. Modesty should be the goal for both girls and boys.  Clothing should draw attention to a cheerful, engaging countenance instead of providing eye traps.
  2. Deference for others is shown by avoiding styles that give rise to temptation or judgmental attitudes in others.  This includes but is not limited to tattoos, inappropriate jewelry or hairstyles, and emblems of rebellion.

General guidelines include the following:

  1. Boys must wear pants or long shorts which fit at the waist and are not excessively baggy.  If dressy casual is requested for certain events, collared shirts and slacks or khakis (no carpenter pants or jeans) are appropriate.
  2. Girls must wear modest tops or dresses with some type of sleeve. The midriff and cleavage area must be covered at all times. Dresses, skirts and pants should not be tight and should be at least knee-length, including slits.  Shorts may be worn for sporting occasions or other specified outdoor events only, but they must be at least mid-thigh in length.
  3. The Administrator or designated staff member(s) will have final authority on the acceptability of conduct and dress at all school or school related events.

Statement of Agreement

We agree to the following:

  1. We have read the Parent Guide and Policy Statement and will follow its requirements.
  2. We have read the Code of Conduct. We understand that the intent of the guidelines is to help us understand those things that may be offensive to others in the group and will follow its intent and spirit to honor all the members of Excalibur. We understand that the Administrator or designated staff member(s) will have final authority on the acceptability of conduct at all school or school related events.
  3. We have read the Statement of Faith (Beliefs) and will conduct ourselves in a manner that will honor it. (This does not mean that you must adhere to the statement of faith as a confession of your personal faith, but that you must respect it as the statement of faith that guides Excalibur, that you will not attempt to undermine that statement of faith by deprecating it to others, and that you will not attempt to introduce doctrines contrary to that statement of faith outside of a proper context. A proper context would be defined as adult-with-adult discussion, or student in class debate, when proper.) If any element of the Statement of Faith needs clarification, Excalibur families are encouraged to contact Mr. Larry Bond. We again refer you to Paragraph 9 below if there is any violation of this provision. The administrator, under the advisement of the School Board, solely determines violations.
  4. We agree that our continued association with Excalibur is a privilege and may be discontinued at the discretion of the administrator of Excalibur
