PRESCHOOL/KINDERGARTEN ROUND UP

TERRANOVA TESTING SCHEDULE
High School students will be taking the final part of their TerraNova Testing on March 22nd in the morning, unless they attend BCAMSC. MSC students will be taking these tests on the same dates but in the afternoon. They will be responsible to make up work that they miss those days for their 5th-7th hour classes. We believe this will be less challenging than the very disjointed 7th hour testing that spanned multiple days/weeks last year.
Middle School students will be taking the Terra Nova on March 26, 27 and 28 in the morning. Please do everything in your power to have your students in school on those days. If you know they are going to absent, please let their teacher know as soon as possible so the testing can be completed ahead of time.
All Ages are welcome in the show! We’re looking for CCS students, alumni and school families. You can do a variety piece, song, dance, skit, or other creative act. Complete the audition form by Friday March 9th, auditions will be scheduled beginning March 12. We hope you can participate in this mission trip fundraiser that helps raise funds for the many needs in the Dominican Republic.
BANQUET DRESS EVENT
The Charitable Union is giving away (yes, they are zero dollars) prom dresses. They have 600+ dresses they would like to give girls in our community. The give away event is on March 24 from 10:00am-3:00pm.
We have a meeting to discuss next year’s live nativity program. The meeting will be taking place on Thursday April 12, a 6:00pm in the parent room.

Parents just in case you want to begin planning ahead for next school year; if your student plans to play any sports during the 2018-2019 school year they will need a new sports physical. Any physicals completed on or after April 15 2018 will be valid for the entire 2018-2019 school year. Physical forms are available in the office. If you have any questions contact our Athletic director, Jake Vandepol, at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling the school office.
On Saturday, June 9th 9-1pm we are hosting our first ever Clothing Swap! This is an opportunity to get the next size up clothes for your students, as well as chapel wear. As you’re are cleaning out your student's closets this Spring please consider dropping off your clothes (jeans, jackets, dresses, shirts, chapel wear, shoes, etc) to Summer LaBonte in the office. We will pay you Cougar Cash for you to shop on June 9th for your clothing. We need ALL sizes (Pre-k through High School), please no stains, rips, or holes. For more information or to help volunteer please contact Summer LaBonte 352-445-3452
