Third Grade Final Four Reading
Hello Crusader Parents-
Now through next Wednesday, February 10th Candy Grams are for sale at CCS. We have a lot to choose from, including Giant Hershey Bars, Lollipop Bouquets, and more. Parents/ Grandparents/ Family Friends may send a Candy Gram to students, and students may also send Candy Grams to their friends here at CCS.
To thank you for your participation and support of our Specials Department for this sale, we have decided to do a fun giveaway! Every Candy Gram order that is placed gives the student one entry into a drawing to win one of everything on our Candy Gram Order. If a Parent/Grandparent/ Family Friend orders for a student, the student’s name is entered once. If a student sends a Candy Gram to another student or their teacher, the sending student’s name is entered once. There will be a separate drawing for Elementary and Middle/High School. The drawing will take place next Friday, February 12th during our chapel service. The more Grams ordered, the more chances to win!
Please let me know if you have any questions.

Please use this list as a resource throughout the year to surprise and encourage them (Birthdays, Christmas, or anytime you want to show them you love and appreciate them)! This is an easy way to show our teachers and staff how much we value who they are and all they do for our children. Thank you! - PTF Leadership Team

2021-22 Heritage Fund Scholarship
What's at the core of Christian education?
How well do you see? Most of us own a pair of glasses - glasses to help us see better, glasses to protect our eyes from the sun, reading glasses, glasses to "look" cool... When you put on those glasses, you see through a different lens. Your ability to see is fundamentally changed.
Christian education helps students learn to view the world through GOSPEL GLASSES. Every day, our teachers and students intentionally look at history, science, math, relationships, athletics, the arts and life through the lens of the gospel.
So what's at the core of Christian education? Listen to two of our Bible teachers explain what it really means to put on gospel glasses. What glasses do you have on today?
