    Auction Help Needed

    We are ready to send our Auction invitations and need volunteers to help stuff, stamp and seal the envelopes! We will have a mailing party on February 7th at 9:00am and 12:30pm. This is a fun way to earn SALT hours and get to know other parents. If you're interested, contact Miss Saari at

    Loaned Clothing

    We keep extra clothes in the office if a child needs to borrow and we are running a little low. If you have borrowed clothing we would love to get them returned so we can have them available for other kids. Also if your child has outgrown any sweat/warm up pants (not jeans) in sizes 4-8, we would love to be a new home for them. Thank you!


    Here's a fun SALT hour opportunity for you. We have a need for someone to run our scoreboard at home basketball games. The scoreboard is easy to run and we will train you how it works in just a few minutes before the game. This year all our home games begin at 4:00. There is only one game each afternoon. Here are the games and dates for which we need your help:

    • February 1
    • February 15
    Online Giving Campaign

    February 6th is our annual online crowd funding event. On this day you can make a donation on our website. Contributions can be small or large! All the proceeds go toward the CCS Foundation. If you aren't able to make it to this year's auction, this is the perfect opportunity to give right from home! Mark your calendars for February 6th.

    7th Grade Authors

    Each of our 7th grade girls wrote a Winter Season Story in English class, and we thought it would be fun to publish them in the Lions Roar. This is our third story written by Veda River

    Winter Wonderland

    While sipping from my warm, clay mug, I watch the storm outside. The drooping evergreen branches collect little diamonds of Ice. Soft, glowing snow drifts down from the bright morning sky. The hot fire crackles as I take another sip from my rich, sugary cocoa. Like a frosted over cranberry, my dad's red truck peeks out from underneath blankets of snow. I decide to go out and play. The door squeaks open and I hop out into the winter wonderland. The fresh, crisp, Christmas air pinches my nose. Freezing in just my T-shirt and jeans, I manage to build a snowman. Deformed but still smiling, the frosty human sits on top of a frozen log. I love winter!
