October 7th – 11th 2019 Newsletter

We had an amazing Chapel this morning led by Mrs. Gott’s 3rd Grade class.  The theme for Chapel this year is “The Armor of God”, and 3rd Grade’s focus this month is “the Breastplate of Righteousness”.  During this month, students will be sharing how to protect our hearts against all the temptations that may come our way.  They will also be sharing how to “Give our Hearts” fully to Jesus, so we can live the life He wants us to live!  The Bible verse for this morning was; “He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; by his wounds you have been healed.”  1 Peter 2:24


The JOG-A-THON was a HUGE success! The kids had an amazing time and were full of school spirit. We love hearing the kids encourage one another, cheer each other on and even join their siblings or buddies to help them continue running! As of today, October 7th, we have raised $12,629.00 and donations are still coming in! We are so grateful for the outpour of support. We have the names, listed alphabetically, of everyone who has sent in donations. We will send out thank you cards to everyone, but if you would like to send your own personal thank you cards, you can find the list posted on our JOG-A-THON wall. Again, we want to say a HUGE thank you to our JOG-A-THON committee and especially to Liz & Adam Artho and Kathy Hornbacher for all of their hard work!

 Character Parade and Bake Sale

Just a friendly reminder, the CCS Character Parade will take place this Thursday, October 24th!  Each CCS student is encouraged to dress up as their favorite “book character” along with bringing to school the book that goes along with their literary character.  All classes will showcase their costumes in the Multipurpose room beginning with K3 at 9:30 a.m.. If you are still in need of a “character idea” or a book to go along with your character, please see Mrs. Hinojos for ideas and assistance.  We do ask that no witches, vampires, monsters, and horror apparel are brought to school on this day. Along with Character Parade on Thursday, October 24th, we will also be having the CCS BAKE SALE!  The Bake Sale will begin at 7:30 a.m. in the main foyer.  If you are wanting to donate items for the Bake Sale, the sign-up sheet will be on in the main hallway next Monday, October 14th. For more information you can the school office at 208-324-3444.


IT’S HERE, AND IT LOOKS AMAZING!!  The new CCS Spirit Wear is here and on display in the main hallway.   😊  Orders will be taken during the month of October and payment is due at the time of ordering. We will not be ordering “Spirit Wear” in bulk this year, so place your order for these “one of a kind” items!
