Shield of Faith Contest
This year we have been studying our spiritual armor in chapel (Ephesians 6:10-18). We have studied each piece month by month. As a culminating project to our study, we are having a Shield of Faith contest. We have challenged the students to consider what's on your shield of faith. This contest is voluntary and extra curricular. We do have some BIG prizes in mind for our contest winners. Shields will be displayed at our Spring Showcase on May 16.
Will you take this opportunity to talk with your child about the armor of God which we have studied this year? And then together decide what would be on your shield of faith? As I think of the answer to that question for myself, I think I would want my shield to display something about the seasons of life and God's protection through them all. Our hope is this can be a fun, family activity that spurs conversation about God's hand of protection in each of our lives.
Report Cards will be going home in the Family Envelope next Wednesday, April 17th, so make sure your student has returned their envelope!
High School at CCS in 2019 - 2020?
We have been praying about offering 9th and 10th grades at CCS again next year. There seems a lot of interest in the possibility. Our initial high school pilot program ran from 2016-2018. We provided high school classes in a university model, 3 day per week program. High school students experienced face to face teaching as well as online learning with the goal of becoming Running Start ready.
Our school board has decided we will again offer high school if we have 6 committed high school students for the 2019-2010 school year by April 30. This means we have 6 (or more) students who have paid their application fees to demonstrate their commitment to the program. The deadline for our decision to offer high school is April 30, 2019. If you or someone you know has a 9th or 10th grader interested in a non traditional high school program, would you let them know our plans and our need to make our decision by April 30? Thank you so much!
CCS Daddy/Daughter Dance
We have a NEW event this year which we hope will be a fun activity for all our dads and daughters. On Friday, May 17, from 6:30 - 8:00 we will have our first ever Daddy Daughter Dance for students in preschool through eighth grade. Tickets will be available in the office beginning May 6 and are $5 per person or $10 per family. There will be refreshments and a photo shoot. Also we have plans for dancing (of course) as well as Karaoke.This inaugural event is for CCS families only. I wonder if my dad would take me.
Our students have the privilege to do Scooter City in PE this year for the week of May 6-10. We will have the gym set up as a city with many different businesses and roads for the students to navigate around on scooters. Mrs. Berg is asking for help as she is looking to borrow 8 playhouses in order to put the city together. She would need them from May 3 - 11. If you are unable to deliver them to the school, Mrs. Berg can pick up, clean and return them! Contact her at email@example.com.
Lost and Found
We have an ABUNDANCE of jackets, shirts and various other items in our lost and found that are begging to go back to their owners, so stop by and take a look! Anything not claimed by Friday will be going to Visiting Nurses.
National Day of Prayer
We would love to have you join us on Thursday, May 2nd, as our school will again have the privilege of hosting the National Day of Prayer from 7-8:30 am with over 200 guests gathering to pray for our nation. What an honor to share our facility with friends from our community. For safe and efficient traffic flow that morning, we are allowing our guests to leave between 8:00 and 8:30 while we clean up the gym. Please plan to drop off your student after 8:40 am that day. The tardy bell will ring at 9:00 am. Students dropped before 8:10 will be charged for the Before School Care, as usual. Families who need to use Before School Care between 8:10 and 8:40 am this day will not be charged. We hope this modified start to our day will allow our guest to leave safely - and our student's to arrive safely just after that. Thanks for your cooperation that allows us to host this great event!
Child Care Needed
We have a little preschool boy whose mother needs to be out of town for work for two weeks. She is looking for someone to pick him up from preschool at 11:00 each day and take him home for lunch and a nap, and then possibly bring him back to CCS at 3:00 for after care. This would be a big help to this family in their time of need. If you could make this work with your schedule, would you please call the office and let us know? Thanks so much.
