Welcome from Mrs. Donnell

Dear CCS Families,


Can you believe that school is almost upon us? What happened to our summer break? I want to welcome all of our students, families and staff back to CCS for the 2017 - 2018 school year.


As most of you are aware CCS has some exciting changes in staff, as well as a wonderful returning staff. We look forward to seeing all of you on our Meet the Teacher Night on August 1. You will be able to meet your student’s teachers and bring in their supplies, get all of your questions answered and even enjoy some ice cream and fellowship.


I am so excited to be a part of CCS and it’s mission. This year our theme is “Servanthood”.

As we begin this new school year I want each of us to learn more about servanthood and to learn to model servanthood in our everyday lives. May God bless this school, its staff, its students and its families as we forge forward in presenting God’s Word and teaching CCS students the biblical perspective of the world.


Thank you for allowing me to be a part of such an exciting ministry!


Angie Donnell

Principal
