PRESCHOOL & KINDERGARTEN OPEN HOUSE

We will have an Open House on Tuesday, March 19th at 6:30pm. This is open to the public if you know of anyone interested in Preschool or Kindergarten this would be a perfect opportunity to invite them.

 

SCHOLARSHIP MATCHING CAMPAIGN

We are so thankful for the Dunakin Family not only joining our school but our CCS staff. We are so thankful for her perspective of Christian Education and its importance. Please SHARE the video and donation link.   

We are happy to update you that we have raised $19,447.80 towards our $30,000 goal for our Scholarship Matching Campaign. We still have a huge goal to reach!  We ask that you please prayerfully consider donating. Your donations are helping the families within our school body as well as giving other children in our community the opportunity to attend CCS. 

 

HIGH SCHOOL GIRLS BIBLE STUDY

Every Wednesday, from 3-4pm there will be a High School Girl's Bible Study.  We will be digging into the book of Ephesians, applying truth to our lives, and learn to live it out.  The study will be lead by Summer Labonte.  Please contact her for more information.

3 WAYS TO GET YOUR PICTURES IN THE YEARBOOK!!

• Give your pictures to any yearbook staff member on a flash drive or CD.

 

SPORTS BOOSTERS FUNDRAISING

Save your Family Fare receipts! Our CCS Booster Club needs them to raise money to help support our sports program through their Direct Your Dollars program.

We will be collecting the eligible receipts in the Direct Your Dollars envelope on the Sports Boosters bulletin board located near the main entrance of the school. Please make sure you drop off original receipts only, photocopies cannot be accepted.

All sports at CCS are 100% Booster Club funded. We do not receive tuition dollars so we are continually looking for ways to help fund our sports program. Concession proceeds, game entrance fees, sports fees, and fundraisers are the only way we can continue to provide a quality sports program for our children.
