At City School we are mindful that we do not function above parental authority but rather with delegated authority from
parents. In the spirit of that parent-school partnership we ask that parents participate in their child’s education and the life of
the school. Parents or guardians are expected to volunteer regularly. Service opportunities will be publicized in August and
throughout the school year.
I/We,
, the parent(s)/guardian(s) of
_, agree and promise to
fulfill my responsibilities as a parent/guardian of a City School student. I understand that it is imperative that I remain
involved with my child’s education at home and at school. I will volunteer my time, attend quarterly conferences with my
child’s teacher, and support the work of City School to the best of my ability.

The Nicene Creed
I believe in one God, the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, and of all things visible and invisible. And in one Lord
Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of God, begotten of his Father before all worlds, God of God, Light of Light, very God of very
God, begotten not made, being of one substance with the Father, by whom all things were made: Who for us men and for our
Salvation, came down from heaven, and was incarnate by the Holy Ghost of the Virgin Mary, and was made man; and was
crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate. He suffered and was buried; and the third day he rose again according to the
scriptures, and ascended into heaven, and sitteth on the right hand of the Father. And he shall come again with glory to judge
the quick and the dead: Whose kingdom shall have no end.
I believe in one Holy Ghost, the Lord and giver of life, who proceedeth from the Father and the Son, who with the Father and
the Son together is worshipped and glorified, who spake by the prophets.
And I believe in one holy catholic * and apostolic church. I acknowledge one baptism for the remission of sins. And I look for
the resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come. Amen.
(*The word “catholic” means universal.)
I understand that City School’s curriculum and instruction have as their foundation the historic Christian faith expressed in the
Nicene Creed, and I support my child being instructed in a manner consistent with belief in the truth of that Creed.
