September 2nd – 6th, 2019 Newsletter

We successfully made it through our first week of school and it has been so exciting to see all of the students adjusting to a new school year, meeting new friends, and reconnecting with old ones!  Just a friendly reminder, school starts at 8:15 a.m. and ends at 3:00 p.m..  Please use the front doors of the building for dropping off and picking up your students. 

We enjoyed our first Opening/Chapel today with all CCS students, teachers, and staff!  The Bible theme for this school year is “THE ARMOR OF GOD”, and the Bible verse for this school year is; Romans 8:31 “If God is for us, who can be against us?” Pastor Mike Haddox, Pastor Will Ritter, CCS teachers and students, and myself, will be leading Chapel’s throughout the school year focusing on this year’s theme!   All parents are welcome to join us each Monday morning at 8:30 a.m. for Chapel/Opening.  We will be reminding students that Chapel is a special day where we come together to celebrate and worship the Lord as a whole school. 

PTF Meeting this Thursday!

PTF will be having their first meeting of the school year this Thursday, from 5:00 to 6:00 p.m.  Come and see what PTF is all about and how you can be involved at CCS this school year!  If you are unable to attend the meeting but still have an interest in being involved, please contact Sarah Sorensen via email at; .  EXCEL childcare will be available for families free of charge during the meeting. 😊

“Specials” begin next week

“Specials” are P.E., Technology, and Library classes, and they will all start the week of September 9th.  We are excited to announce Ms. Shelby Myhre will be teaching P.E. and Technology this school year along with Ms. Krista teaching Library once again!  We remind our CCS students that these “special classes” are a privilege to attend, and we look forward to class each and every week!  Check with your child’s teacher on their specified schedule for Specials. 


We will have our JOG -A -THON kick off assembly next Monday, September 9th!  This is such an amazing day and an important fundraiser for our school and we are looking forward to another successful event. Packets will be going home next Monday with 15 forms to be filled out by parents and students.  Please fill out the forms with addresses of friends and family members, and then bring back to school as soon as possible. If you are able to, we would ask that you stamp all forms and return the forms to school with your child.  If you’re not able to provide postage, we will be happy to provide postage and mail them out for you. If a student brings back all 15 forms, they will earn a JOG -A -THON  t-shirt and their name will go into a

 School Lunches            

The first couple of weeks as you and your children are getting back into the routine of signing up for the drawing to win a prize! For each additional 5 forms students bring in, their name goes in the drawing again for the chance to win a prize. Every week in September, the prize patrol will be coming around to each classroom to collect forms and pass out prizes. The kids love it! More information about the actual day of the JOG- A -THON, Thursday, October 3rd,  will come home throughout the rest of the month.

School Supply Billing

 CCS families will be billed for school supplies on their October tuition billing.  I apologize for the late billing date, we had originally planned to have this amount on the September tuition billing. Each teacher will be letting families know what their class supplies cost is in their weekly newsletters.  Please feel free to contact the office if you have any questions and/or concerns.
