December 2nd – 6th 2019 Newsletter

Welcome back!  I hope you and your family had a wonderful Thanksgiving break and had the opportunity to spend some quality time with family and friends.  We had a wonderful time in Chapel this morning with Mrs. Cunningham’s K5 class leading us!  The Kindergarten students, along with a very special puppet friend, Scooter, are teaching us about the true meaning of Christmas and how we can “serve others” during this busy holiday season! The memory verse for this month is found in the book of Isaiah  – “For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us.”  Isaiah 9:6

Christmas Program

The CCS Christmas Program is scheduled for Thursday, December 12th at 6:00 p.m. at Lighthouse Christian School in Twin Falls.  Students will need to be at LCS no later than 5:30 p.m. on the night of the program. This will also be an early release day at 12:30 p.m. for all students.  The EXCEL program will be available on this afternoon for students who are signed up.

Lynch Creek Farm Fundraiser

The Lynch Creek Farm online fundraiser will end on December 20th. This will be the last day to place your Christmas order. CCS has partnered with Lynch Creek Farm for several years now, as this company will give back 15% of CCS sales profit to our school!  For this fundraiser, please go online and view all the beautiful items you can purchase for yourself and/or for someone else,  

 School Wide FUN DAY!

We will be having a SCHOOL WIDE fun day on Wednesday, December 18th, to celebrate the success of the Chocolate Sales!  We exceeded our goal of $2,500!  The total “sales” amount will be given out next week!  We will have a Chocolate Assembly on the morning of the 18th, beginning at 9:00 a.m., followed by school wide games and a movie and popcorn in the afternoon. 

“THANK YOU”  for a fantastic Thanksgiving Feast!

We want to thank all of you who contributed to the school wide Thanksgiving Feast on Thursday, November 21st.  Once again, it was a huge success! Students, families, and CCS staff enjoyed a great meal together  – and this is because of ALL OF YOU who so graciously donated food, supplies, and your time for this wonderful event!

Remind System

Now that December is here, we are very likely going to have days when school will be closed due to bad weather.  If we have a school closer, CCS will send out a phone text message through the “Remind System.”  The text will go out to all CCS families who have downloaded the Remind APP. This APP was made available to all CCS families at the beginning of the school year.  If you did not download this APP, and would like to have the “Remind” text sent to you, please go to the following link:  Follow the instructions to sign up for “Remind”.  CCS will also typically follow Jerome School District’s policy for school closures, and we will notify KMVT if school is closed due to bad weather.
