MAP (Measures of Academic Progress) TESTING

We will begin our winter MAP testing this Wednesday, January 22nd.  Testing during this quarter will be for Kindergarten through 5th Grade students.  Please make sure your student has a good night’s sleep and a healthy breakfast the day of their testing.  J The data that is collected from these assessments gives teachers and administration specific information on instruction and the individualized academic needs of each student.  The testing schedule for this week is as follows:

Wednesday, January 22nd:  Kindergarten, 3rd – 5th Grade Reading
Thursday, January 23rd: 1st & 2nd Grade Reading
Friday, January 24th: 3rd Grade Language

PTF Meeting & Auction Meeting

The PTF planning meeting has been rescheduled for this Thursday, January 23rd, at 2:00 p.m..  PTF will be planning for upcoming events such as Valentine Grams, Dr. Seuss Green Eggs and Ham lunch, Book Fair, Grandparent’s Day and Teacher Appreciation!

The Auction committee will also be meeting on this day at 5:30 p.m. in the Library.  This year’s event, The Roaring 20’s CCS Annual Auction, will be held on March 6th! The auction committee is currently collecting “gently used” purses for the “Power of the Purse” portion of this year’s action.  If you have a purse that you would like to donate, please bring it to the school office or contact Joanna Stevenson/Kathy Hornbacher for more details. 

Box Tops

Collecting Box Tops can be an easy but very beneficial way to contribute to CCS! You can now download the Box Top App on your phone/computer and scan your store receipts for Box Top points!  CCS will also continue taking the “cut out” Box Tops from purchased food items.  Don’t forget to have your student drop off their Box Tops in the B.T. mailbox in the main school foyer.  Top Box Top winners are recognized each month in Chapel.


Don’t forget to wear your crazy slippers/socks this Thursday for CCS SPIRIT DAY!  Will your class show the most school SPIRIT this month??!!  We can’t wait to find out!
