A Note From Mrs. Donnell
We hope that everyone enjoyed their Fall Break! Most of our CCS students and staff came back quite refreshed and ready to start a new 9 weeks! As we begin the Fall Season I thought it would be neat so learn some fun facts about fall. See below.
The largest squash on record to-date belonged to Joel Jarvis from Port Elgin, Ontario. His prize-winning gourd weighed 1,486.6 pounds. Think about how much butternut squash soup could be made with that!
When leaves change colour in the fall, they are actually becoming their true colour. In the summer, the chlorophyll (which is how the leaves receive nourishment from the sun) takes over and causes them to turn green and hide their colour.
Pumpkins are grown all over the world: six of seven continents (all except Antarctica), to be exact. Love pumpkin pie? The largest ever made was in New Bremen, Ohio—it was 20 feet in diameter and weighed 3,699 pounds! It took days to bake, but was cut into 5,000 slices when it was finished.
Bobbing for apples
Although this is a popular game that kids and adults play at Halloween, it actually started as a British courting ritual. Every male was assigned an apple and then the young eligible ladies would bob for them, hoping to grab the apple of their beloved.
Topic: We all have sin and have committed sin.

Topic: "Who is to Condemn Us?" The Incredible News of the Gospel!
1. Where do you think you will go when you die?
2. If you did die tonight and stood before God and He asked you "Why should I allow you into Heaven?" What would you say?
