    Operation Christmas Child Boxes

    Just a reminder that our Operation Christmas Child shoebox dedication and send off will be held tomorrow, Nov. 15th during chapel.  Please send your shoebox to school tomorrow and join us in thoughtful prayer that each box may be a blessing to the recipient. Extra shoebox labels are available in the office.

     

    Morning Drop Off

    For safety reasons, we ask that all parents remain with their students during before school drop off until the doors are opened at 8:10.  If your student needs to be dropped off before 8:10, please use our before care service.

     

    SALT Hour Opportunities

    We are in need of a Sound Tech for our Christmas Program on December 18th! If this is something that you like to do, please contact Miss Bosman at:

    kbosman@centraliachristianschool.org

     

    Do you have some time to spare?  We have a couple jobs that could be done any time that suits your schedule.

    - Install a gate in the chain link fence (we have the materials needed)

    - Remove a few areas of wallpaper (we will supply you with the necessary tools)

     

    Assistant Knowledge Bowl Coach Needed

    Our 6th, 7th and 8th graders will begin Knowledge Bowl competitions in January. Miss Bosman, our third grade teacher, will be our coach this year. She is looking for an assistant coach to help with the details. Are you a parent or grandparent with a child participating? This would be a great way to earn SALT hours or there is a small stipend available. If you're interested and available, please contact Miss Bosman at kbosman@centraliachristianschool.org.

    In your family envelope today, are order forms for our 2018-19 School Yearbooks! The cost is $25 and every class and sport is represented. Only families who place orders now will receive yearbooks when they arrive in the spring.  Order deadline is January 18!

     

    Chromebooks

    If you are starting your Christmas shopping and looking for ideas, we are still taking orders for Chromebooks! The cost is $300. If you would like to purchase one as a Christmas gift please let the office know before November 27th. The Chromebooks come loaded with all programs used at CCS. In addition they have a filter for inappropriate content and come with a maintenance agreement with our tech committee for as long as your child attends CCS.

    Just wanted to remind everyone that with parent-teacher conferences, staff day and Thanksgiving break, there is no school for the week of November 19th-23rd.

     
    Auction Raffle Tickets

    Our auction committee is busy preparing to make this year's annual auction simply amazing! The auction is on March 16 and we are starting early by raffling off your choice of a $500 Cash Card or $500 towards tuition. The winner will be announced December 18 at the CCS Christmas program. Look inside your family envelope for the tickets (5 per student) and more information! All money needs to be turned in to the office by Dec. 14. This is a great fundraiser for the school!

     

    Christmas Wreath Sales

    To raise money for the 2018 Washington D.C. trip, our Middle School students are taking orders for Christmas greens. These beautiful wreaths, centerpieces and other greens are made locally and delivered fresh.  If you want your order to benefit a specific student, contact them directly for ordering information. Orders turned in to the office will be divided among all participating students. We appreciate your support!

     

    Call for Parent Liaisons

    We still have a need for a representative, or parent liaison, in the following local churches: Centralia Church of God, Bethel Downtown Centralia, Life Center and Shoestring Valley Community Church. If you attend one of these churches, would you consider representing Centralia Christian School at your church? This is a 10 SALT Hour commitment. We ask that liaisons make mention of CCS in their churches four times within the year. This can be with a simple informational announcement, a bulletin insert, showing a CCS video, or whatever creative idea you come up with to promote CCS in your church community. If you are interested in finding out more, please call our parent liaison director, Karen DeFilippo at 425 280 1783.
