Character Parade

We would like to invite our families and any friends, relatives, etc to our Character Parade to be held on Thursday, October 24th.  The Character Parade is an opportunity for students to dress up as a literary character and answer questions about a book they have read.   Each child is encouraged to come “in character” on this day.  He/she will also need to bring a copy of the book from which their character is in.  All classes will showcase in the multipurpose room beginning with K-3 at 9:30 a.m.. If you have questions about this event, please be sure and ask your child’s teacher or stop by the office.  If you need character ideas, Mrs. Hinojos would be happy to help with ideas and/or a book that will go with your student’s book character. We encourage all students and staff to dress up on this fun day, but ask that no witches, monsters, vampires, and dangerous props are brought to school. 

Bake Sale

Along with Character Parade on Thursday, October 24th, we will also be having the CCS BAKE SALE!  The Bake Sale will begin at 8:00 a.m. in the main foyer.  If you are wanting to donate items for the Bake Sale, please see the sign- up sheet located on the PTF bulletin board.  We will accept all kinds of yummy and delicious items! All donated items need to be brought to the school at the following times:

  • Canned items due by October 21st
  • Fresh baked goods due by October 23rd
  • Day-of fresh items due by 8:00 a.m. October 24th

For more information and/or if you would like to volunteer to help with this event, please call the school office at 208-324-3444.


The PTF Candy Sale will be double the GOODNESS this week!  PTF will be offering both cotton candy and homemade Halloween marshmallows.  That’s right…. 2 delicious treats for $2.00!!

Auction Meeting

The CCS Auction committee would like to invite all CCS parents to the 1st Auction meeting of the year, this Thursday, October 17th, from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. in the CCS Library. We will be discussing all auction points including “theme’ for this year. Childcare and dinner will be provided.

Parent Teacher Conferences

Parent Teacher Conferences are scheduled for October 28th – October 31st..  We will have full days of school on these four days (Monday – Thursday) and then NO SCHOOL on Friday, November 1st.  The EXCEL program will be available on this day for students who are needing care.  Please see the sign- up sheet located outside of the Multi Purpose Room door.  Your student’s teacher will be sending home letters this week with the date and time of your child/children’s conference.  If the day or time does not work for you, please let your student’s teacher know ASAP so a new time and/or date can be scheduled.  Conferences are a valuable time for teachers to communicate with you about your child’s progress.  We do ask however, that siblings are not brought to the conference and appreciate your understanding and support in this request.

Thursday HAT DAY Goal 😊

All funds for CCS “Hat Day” this year will be going towards sending 3 of our very own CCS students to an amazing leadership opportunity in Washington D.C. the summer of 2020!  Maddie Baker, Treysen Vanderham, and Hunter Bandy were all nominated to the Junior National Young Leaders Conference!  As stated, this conference will take place in Washington DC the end of June 2020.  Hat Day funds, will help cover the cost of attending the conference, food, and motel expenses.  Thank you for your support and contributions to our CCS kiddos!

Thank You Vanden Bosch Family!

We would like to extend a special “Thank You” to the VandenBosch family for once again providing an AMAZING Pumpkin Patch experience for our K3 – 2nd Grade students!  Every year the Vanden Bosch family not only grows some of the most beautiful pumpkins, they also provide a fun filled event with train rides, mazes, games and a special “Christ centered” craft for each child.  We love and appreciate your willingness to give !
