 ALL SCHOOL NEWS

 

​​

 

  • Jog for Jesus- Jog for Jesus (J4J) is an annual event here at the school. This is a combined end of year picnic and fundraiser. We ask that EVERY family and student participate. This will be one of the simplest fundraisers for you as a parent! 

 

  • We ask that you send in 10 names/addresses per student and we will do the rest! What happens next,  the students write letters to those family/friends and ask for a donation, for jogging. 

  • It does cost the school around 10.00 per student for the day, which is why it is important that everyone participates. 

  • Students receive a free t-shirt and lunch that day. 

  • Students also have the opportunity to purchase silly string, for the silly string your teacher event. Silly string is $2.00 per can.

  • We ask that you purchase the stilly string from the school, and not send in pre-bought cans with your child. Students may purchase one or two cans. 

 

  • PRESCHOOL-It is suggested for preschool to only purchase one can because it is hard for the little ones to handle two at the same time

    • The event is Friday, May 15th.  

    • Attached is the permission/T-shirt size/ Silly String form. 

    • Please have the form filled out and returned to the office by February 19th. 

    • NOTE: If you would like to volunteer on event day, you can sign up on the permission form, there is a section for you to fill out. 

    • If you are also interested in helping out with donations we are asking for cases of water and oranges.

  • Parent Text Messaging/Remind App- The SchoolWay app that we have used in previous years for snow day/2hr delay text announcements is not longer available. Therefore, we are going to use the remind app for this purpose. We send text messages for bad weather cancellations and delays, emergency information, general announcements/reminders. A few things about the remind app;

  • 1- It is not a two-way text app. The school will not respond to messages received on remind. 

  • 2- Purpose is simply to get important information directly to you in a fast, convenient way. 

  • 3-The App is free. 

 

  • Simply click on this link, from your smartphone and follow the prompts. If you do not have a smartphone, contact the office and we will get you set up on your current cell phone. 

 

Scrip-  CCCS participates in the Scrip program. Scrip is ordering gift cards and a portion of the credit earned goes toward your student's tuition and the school.

  • Our next order will be Wednesday, February 26th, 2020 and gift cards will be sent home on  Wednesday, March 4th, 2020.

  • Retailer List of all participating stores attached.

  • Using Scrip on your phone information attached.

  • As always, if you only want plastic gift cards, you do not need to set up an account. Just turn in one check or money order and your order form. 

  • If you would like to print your own gift cards to use or would like to use them from your phone, please print the order sheet with directions. 

  • If you have any questions, please call Beth Brovey at 724-986-8862
