Thanksgiving Feast - don't forget to place student and parent orders TODAY!

On Fri., Nov. 20, CtRCS will celebrate our annual Thanksgiving Feast Lunch. Parents are invited to come and have a Thanksgiving lunch with their student(s). Our lunch caterer will prepare a complete roasted turkey menu with desserts and drinks.

Lunch must be ordered online through the school lunch website by the end of TODAY. Due to space limitations, lunch will be restricted to two parents/adults and immediate siblings only. Parents with students eating at different times (as detailed below) should indicate in the notes of the lunch order at which time the parents will eat their meals. Parents are welcome to sit with their other children while the students eat at their scheduled lunch times.

*Please note: If you order lunch “By the Month” on the school caterer website, you must still order the separate Thanksgiving Feast menu choice for this event.

The lunch schedule that day will be:

10:45-11:25: Pre-K 3, Pre-K 4 and Kindergarten

11:30-12:10: 1st and 2nd grade

12:15-1:00: 3rd-6th grade

Lunch prices are $6.75 for students and $7.25 for adults.

We look forward to sharing this day with you and celebrating the many blessings that have been bestowed on our school! Should you have questions, please contact Laura Tijerina ( or Michele Snyder (

THANK YOU: 2nd Annual CtR Chili Cook-Off Cooked to Perfection!

Many thanks to the many CtR volunteers, families and faculty/staff who made the 2nd Annual CtR Chili Cook-Off supporting our Steps for Students 2016 team a major success for our school community! Special thanks to the CtR Steps for Students/Chili Cook-Off Committee for their dedication to making the Cook-Off the biggest night of the year for our school! We are truly grateful to the many sponsors and donors who helped make this such a wonderful opportunity for our families to share fellowship. Congratulations to Krewe de Saunier - 1st place chili winner; Red Hot Chili Preppers - 2nd place winner; and 10-Point Chili - 3rd place chili winner. Red Hot Chili Preppers also received the Most Popular Chili Award based on a crowd vote. All silent and live auction winners have been notified.

Mills Uniform Company - Fall Sale!

Mills Uniform Company is having their winter sale Nov. 7 - 21. Receive 10% off all in-stock items online and in-store. Get the coupon or lookup the store location and stock up on all of your winter wear!

Lost and Found: Please check your child's sweaters, outerwear, ties, etc...

As the cooler weather approaches, students often need a jacket or sweater in the morning. As they are removed when the day warms up, we find that the outerwear is forgotten or mistakenly taken home by another student. We ask all parents to please check the tags of all sweatshirts, jackets, sweaters and ties in your child's closet. If you have an item that was brought home in error, please return it to the lost and found in the front lobby of the school. If the item has a child's name on it, Mrs. Mendoza will go through them several times a week to return items to their rightful owners. You are also welcome to come in and check the lost and found.
