Note from Mrs. Warren
It is important that we work together as a team throughout the school year. We want each student to learn and grow both academically and spiritually while attending CCS. We need your help in a few areas.
Please remember to call the school office by 9:15 if your student is going to be absent. We are working hard to ensure consistency in our attendance records as well as accounting for each student's safety and success. Attendance is an essential part of your student's success. Please schedule doctor and dental appointments after school hours as much as possible and follow the sign in/out procedures when your student arrives late/leaves early. We greatly appreciate your help in this matter.
A Special Thank You To:
- Mrs.Bailey for being the mainstay of the morning care for our elementary students- She is one of the staff members to arrive the earliest! We appreciate her supervision in the gym each morning!
- Ms. Holly for not only helping in the kitchen during the day, but also for working in the evening to keep our Jr.- Sr. High clean- We appreciate all of your hard work!
- Sergeant Matt Simmons for providing all the great information on how to keep our children safe online- We appreciate you sharing your wisdom with CCS parents at Thursday's P.T.F meeting.
We have been so grateful to have had Mrs.Friedersdorf as our choir teacher. Her gift of time and service to CCS students over the years has been a huge blessing. Her love for the Lord, our students, and music has impacted many who have participated in the CCS choir classes. She will be greatly missed!
God has been so good to provide a new choir teacher for our elementary students. Her name is Linda Coad. She formerly taught music for the Indianapolis Public School System. She is now retired and resides in North Vernon, IN. Mrs. Coad has already been assisting Mrs. Harvey and Mrs. Taylor with the high school choir as the piano accompanist. She will begin working with elementary students in grades 3-6 on Monday, September 19. Students will meet with Ms. Coad every other Monday to start for 40 minutes. Students may sign up in their classroom.

Jr./Sr. High Chapel
Topic for chapel was Suffering. We will all suffer at some time in our lives. Living a Christian life does not promise an easy life. Question is: What will you do, how will you handle suffering when it happens? Tia Fathauer, Sophomore, spoke about her own experience of suffering when her brother, Cameron, was hit by a car while skateboarding last year. Not wanting to ever face that fear again, God has given her the strength to overcome her fear and become a light by sharing her story with others that feel lost and confused during the recent incident of Levi and Adriane. God is sovereign through sufferings and Tia gives all the glory to God for her sufferings.

ATTENTION HIGH SCHOOL PARENTS!
Registering for a spring test date will enable your student to take advantage of the greatest amount of instruction this year while still allowing time for a retest if necessary.
If you are the parent of a sophomore, please check the College Board site for the PSAT dates. This test will be administered at our location, so we will supply testing information at a later date. If you are the parent of a tenth grade student, and he/she would like to take the PSAT, please email Mrs. Paradise.
This year, the College Board has partnered with Khan Academy (www.khanacademy.org) to provide additional SAT test preparation services. Visit their site to find informative videos on the new test formats, practice tests and tutorials, as well as personalized feedback and individualized study plans for registered users.
Mrs. Paradise is handling testing for the high schoolers this year. You can contact her with any questions at email@example.com.
