A Note from the Principal
What a blessing our PTF has been to all of our staff this week. Teacher Appreciation Week is always such a blessing, but I also think we might have put on about 20 extra pounds! The PTF might want to offer us an exercise class next week! It was a lot of fun to hear everyone participating in the Teacher Scavenger Hunt. The laughter among staff members was such a delight to hear as they tried to figure out who belonged to each interesting fact.
We ask for prayers for the Senior students as they travel to Hilton Head, SC for their final Senior Trip as CCS students. We also ask for prayers that all of our students finish strong this last couple of weeks of school.
Thank you all for your help and support with our Walk-a-Thon. We will announce our winners on Monday, May 21st after we have collected all pledges.
Topic: What it means to be a Christian. How well are you doing at it?
1 Corinthians 13:4 says that "Love is kind."
When you're not kind, you're not loving. If you want to be like Jesus, you have to be kind. Kindness is treating someone the way you would like them to treat you.
When you get up in the morning, you have to put on a good attitude. When you put on your shirt, put on kindness.
Joseph wasn't kind to his brothers because he was always tattle-taling on them. After his brothers sold him and through his experiences, he developed a spirit of kindness over time.
Challenge: How can I be kind?
Jr. & Sr. High Chapel
Topic: Heart Check: Are you feeling weak or strong?
Reference: Colossians 1:11-14
Hard times creep in. They come in the form of having a bad day, feeling worn out, experiencing a tragedy, etc. God is a fill-in God. As we chase after "things of this world" to fill our void, God wants to quench our thirst with his joy, which is found in Jesus Christ. In our weakness, his strength shines through.

Indy 500 Shop
The Indianapolis 500 is here and Coach Roth is looking for volunteers! Below you'll find dates & times. It is an all day event but it is worth it! Thanks to this event, CCS can pay for referees, uniforms, equipment, etc. and the cost does not fall back on the families as they do in most schools.
Is this your first time? It seems overwhelming but it's actually quite fun. You meet early in the morning and Coach Roth drives you to the event because he gets "special" parking ; )
Plan to pack a lunch and drinks - the food up there is pricey! You will operate a cash register in an air conditioned shop. The registers are super easy to work and Coach is there to help you.
Want to find out from someone who's been there? Contact the school office and ask Lori or Tammy what it's like.
