Pajamas and Pancakes Change of Date- February 21st

Colts! We are very excited to spend some time together at our Family Night! We have had a very busy week leading into the new school year and several busy weeks to come with our amazing Gala and then Steps for Students! We will postpone our event until Friday, February 21st so that we do not tap into the resources already hard on work on these two events. The sign-up https://www.signupgenius.com/go/9040D4CAFAA23A31-pancakes will be updated with the new date. If you have already signed up, you can keep your same assignment or cancel if you are not available. (Reminder: the Griddle assignment and cooking the pancakes will be for adults only).


We will also have a pre-sale/pre-order for the event.


Thank you so much for your understanding,

Jae Frazier (PSO President)

Virtual Used Uniform Sale

We are halfway through the school year, and our scholars have grown in so many ways! If your scholar's uniform is shrinking, the PSO Used Uniform Sale is right around the corner. The proceeds from the sale go to the PSO to benefit the school. Save lots of money with rock bottom pricing on your uniform needs.


This winter we are going to try a "virtual" used uniform sale. Please email your uniform request to cccs.used.uniforms@gmail.com, with the family name, your scholar's name and grade, and the uniform items you would like including size and any other particulars. Pricing is the same as during the summer - $10 for long sleeved sweaters and fleece jackets, $3 for ties, belts, headbands, prior season spirit shirts, $5 for everything else, including skorts, skirts, blouses, shirts, polos, jumpers, and gym uniform tops and bottoms.


Please send in your email request, and orders will be filled on a first-in first-filled basis, as supplies allow. Your order will be brought to the school office on January 24th, billed to your FACTS account, and given to your scholar to bring home.


If only part of your order can be filled, we will fill that part (unless you specifically request all or nothing.) Also, it's important that if you are specifying a size such as medium, we will need to know if it is youth medium, or adult medium. For skorts/skirts, we can accommodate size tag on the skirt, and/or waist & length measurements.


Please note that due to the lack of popularity, we will not be reselling pants and shorts.


A huge thanks to Mrs. Maribeth Cremer for overseeing this project!

STREAM is Robotics in Action

Eighth grade scholars designed and programmed robots in STREAM lab last quarter. The younger students were fascinated by their creations!
