Spring Planting

We had 26 hardworking volunteers that showed up on Saturday, March 10th to set up the cylinder gardens and clean up in the Conservation Site. In addition, three parent volunteers helped the 1st through 5th grade students plant vegetables in their cylinder gardens last Wednesday.


Thanks volunteers for helping our students appreciate God's creation. We couldn't do it without you!

Uniform Reminders

As we begin the fourth quarter of the school year, we'd like to remind everyone of the dress code policy. We understand that many of our new families are without the logo shirts due to the Parker Uniform situation. Know that we will continue to work with our families in this matter.


Although some are without the official uniform, we are asking that all students adhere to the shoe policy. Research shows that the way a student dresses, affects the way he/she behaves. Please help us reinforce the dress code policy, so that we may continue to provide an environment, which is conducive to learning.



Shoes:


  • They must be white, black, brown or navy and contain no large logos, blinking lights, or bright colors, including shoe strings.
  • High top tennis shoes may not be worn.
  • Tennis shoes with retractable roller skates are prohibited.
  • Boots and sandals are not allowed.
  • Students with orthopedic challenges may wear a non-uniform shoe with a doctor's note.
  • No lights, sound devices or other distracting features are permitted.
  • Athletic shoes or flat dress shoes with a rubber sole are the uniform shoe.



Socks:


  • Must be worn with all shoes and be visible above the ankles; White or navy.
  • Elite socks are not permissible.
  • Girls may wear white, navy or beige tights or hose. Leggings may not be worn.
  • During cold weather, girls may wear white or navy seamless tights, or hose (not shiny exercise wear) with their socks.

Thank you for your assistance in this matter.

Advancement

Spring Fling Raffle Tickets

April 5th is our first "Ticket Turn-in Thursday" for Spring Fling Raffle Tickets! Students - bring your raffle ticket envelopes containing sold raffle tickets with money collected and turn in to your homeroom teacher. Spring Fling t-shirts (earned for selling 8 raffle ticket books) can be worn to school with uniform bottoms each Thursday in April. Students' names will be entered into a weekly Colt prize drawing for every 12 books sold. Top 2 sellers will win a $100 Amazon gift card. And…if we reach our $23k goal, CCCS students will win a fun day on the Monday after Spring Fling, April 30th! Students will enjoy Pajama Day, a half day read-a-thon, music during lunch and ….Dr. McCoy will be dressed according to the whims of the 8th grade class!


The CCCS community supports the parish Spring Fling raffle with the sales of raffle tickets. A portion of the proceeds benefit our students by providing operating dollars to the school. This fundraising helps to bridge the gap between tuition fees and the actual cost to educate each student.


Ticket counters needed! We need help with counting raffle tickets on “Ticket Turn-in Thursdays” in April and the last Friday of April. Meet in the Jones room at 8:00 a.m. for coffee and counting. Get volunteer hours!


Thanks for your support in advance!

Save the Date!

Lenten Fact

Why is fish OK on Fridays?

Differentiating between fish and meat on Fridays (fish being traditionally OK to eat instead of meat on Fridays during Lent), came from the Jewish tradition of separating fish from meat.


St. Paul writes in his first letter to the Corinthians, "There is one kind of flesh of men, another flesh of bests, another of fish, and another of birds" (15:39)


As meat has always been a food for fasting, giving up meat on Fridays has been a way to acknowledge the sacrifice Jesus made for us by dying on the cross.

May the joy of Easter bring hope and blessings to your family. May the peace of Christ that surpasses all understanding warm your homes and hearts.


Happy Easter!
