A Note From Mrs. Donnell
Most of the kids are getting excited about the fact that we only have 34 days of school left. Sometimes I think our longer summer break is a bit too long to go without seeing their sweet faces and getting their heartwarming hugs in the hallway, but I know that it is always good to step back sometimes. But, keep your eyes and ears open for some exciting opportunities that will allow the students to stay in touch with the CCS staff over the summer and earn some great rewards!
I hope you all get a chance to come and see the Drama Department’s production of “James and the Giant Peach” this weekend. The Drama Department has worked very hard and we are very proud of them. Also don’t forget that the Senior Class is sponsoring a Pulled Pork Dinner tonight before the Drama production from 5:00 - 6:30 in the CCS gym. There will be a free-will donation box to help support their trip to NYC in May.

Open house invitation for you!
Do you have friends and family members who wonder what a PreK-12th grade Christian education looks like? Now you can show them!
Come! and invite your friends to our All-School Open House on Thursday, April 18th from 5:30-7:30pm. This will be an evening where both current and future families can witness Christ-centered academic instruction, see results of athletic excellence and experience worship through the arts.
Are you or your child curious about what the transition looks like from Kindergarten to Elementary... Elementary to Middle School... or Middle School to High School? Come get a taste!
In the coming weeks, we will have open house promotional materials for our families and staff to share at your churches, in social groups, and with your family and friends. We will also be asking for and depending on your participation to showcase what God is doing at Columbus Christian.
Please begin praying for this event and for attending families who are weighing what public, private and home school options could look like for their child. We all know what that is like! There are exciting things happening and together we look forward to giving God the glory for His work in and through the lives of students, families and Columbus Christian School.
Building His Kingdom for eternity,
Vision: To create a culture where every life is valued and celebrated as a gift from God.
God determines our value. He is the author of our lives.
GOD is Pro-Life!

Senior Class of 2019 Fundraisers
Pulled Pork Sandwich Dinner
The Columbus Christian School Drama Department proudly presents their spring musical: James and the Giant Peach. This is sure to be an eccentric evening of entertainment for the whole family!
This show is a delightfully offbeat adaptation of the classic Roald Dahl adventure. An orphaned boy is sent to chop down a fruitless tree by his conniving and dreadful aunts. There he meets an enigmatic stranger that concocts something special resulting in human-sized insects with overgrown personalities. This show has a wonderful medley of fun and heartwarming songs and laugh out loud moments!
James and the Giant Peach the musical words and music by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, book by Timothy Allen McDonald based on the children's book by Roald Dahl.
Doors Open at 6:30pm, Show begins at 7:00pm
Tickets: $7 for adults / $5 for children (Under 3 are free)
Tickets available at the door or in advance by calling the school office at (812) 372-3780.
The 2019 CCS graduating class will offer concessions during intermission, proceeds benefitting their senior class trip to NYC.
