  • CCS End of Year Parade Route

    We are excited to see everyone on Thursday, June 4 from 12:00-1:00 pm for our End of Year Parade. To ensure safety, please remain in your vehicles as you drive through the parade route. You are welcome to make signs and decorate your vehicle!

    Please see the attached map for the parade route. Make sure to turn into the GOTA entrance, not Willard Way. Please use your car tags so we can prepare items to expedite the process to get everyone around the car loop in an orderly and timely fashion. In addition to that, we have created a schedule to cut down on too many people showing up at once. If you are able to come at your grades appointed time that is awesome. If not come when you can. If you have multiple students you may choose which appointed time to show up.

  • 2019-2020 School Year Plan

    Here is our plan for the rest of the 2019-2020 school year:

    • We will continue to provide distance learning through the last day of our school calendar, June 5. 

    • We will send out report cards on June 10 as originally planned.

    • Moving forward, teachers will hold at least 2 virtual classes a week.

    • Moving forward, teachers will create at least 2 videos of instruction per week.

    • Moving forward, teachers will use Google Classroom as a way to collect assignments digitally. 

    • Moving forward, teachers will hold at least 1 virtual homeroom class a week so that students can stay connected with each other and with their teacher. This will also be a time for students to share prayer requests and pray for each other.

    • Moving forward, teachers will hold virtual office hours twice a week.

    • We will continue to create chapel videos for students to watch on Fridays. 

    Many of our teachers are already doing this and going above and beyond! I've been impressed with how quickly our teachers have adapted to this transition, especially on such short notice.

     

    Frequently Asked Questions about the Rest of the 2019-2020 School Year:

    How will we grade the 4th quarter? Assignments that have been turned in will be graded and will count for the 4th quarter. We will also give a final grade that averages all of the quarters for students in grades 1-8. Next week, we will send out more details about 4th quarter grades. 

    What if my child needs to pick up items at school? We will arrange dates and times the last week of May for students to return to pick up any items left at school. In order to ensure social distancing, each grade level will be given a specific time of day to pick up items.

    What about yearbooks? Yearbooks will arrive sometime this week or next week. We will sell yearbooks over the summer. We will also sell yearbooks this August at the beginning of the next school year.

    What about the spring programs and the play? Unfortunately, we must cancel these events.

    What about 8th grade graduation? We will postpone and reschedule graduation. Hopefully, we will be able to hold graduation in July or August before the next school year begins.

    What about the 7th and 8th grade spring trip? If possible, we would like to reschedule this trip for sometime in July or August before the next school year begins.

    What about Family Picnic Day? If possible, the PTF officers would like to reschedule this event for sometime in July or August before the next school year begins. 

    What about the 2020-2021 School Year? Our governor and our accrediting organization (SCISA) both seem optimistic that school will resume this fall. We share that same optimism and are making plans for the next school year.
