"A Parent's Guide to Social Media"

Did you know there's no such thing as online privacy? Are you aware of the online privacy rules? Do you know how to keep your child safe online? Are you aware that someone as young as 10 years old can be arrested?

All parents are encouraged to join us on Thursday, April 12th at 6:00 p.m. in Prefontaine Hall as a representative from Crime Stoppers will discuss these topics and much more. Let's work together to keep our children safe!

Dine Out Tonight at California Pizza Kitchen, 1705 A Post Oak Blvd.

Please refrain from scheduling any appointments during this week. Additional information will be forthcoming.

"Theology of the Body" Middle School Parent Information Session, April 19th

Middle School scholars will participate in the Theology of the Body program. This profound teaching is based upon what Pope St. John Paul called an “adequate anthropology” – an examination of what it means to be human, made in God’s image and likeness, and how that reality is made visible in our human bodies.

Middle School parents are encouraged to attend this informative session to learn how the program will be implemented in the curriculum and how you can reinforce these teachings at home with your student. Please make plans to join us on Thursday, April 19th at 6:00 p.m. in Prefontaine Hall.

Action for Apes

Our Student Council has accepted the Houston Zoo's Action for Apes Challenge!

Handheld electronics such as cell phones contain a material called tantalum, which comes from coltan, a metallic ore that is destructively mined in gorilla habitats in the African Congo.

You can help by recycling your everyday handheld items, such as tablets and cell phones. The collection begins today and runs through April 13th. Please spread the word!

Answer the Call, Save a Chimp! Recycle a cell phone.

Calling All Gardeners!

The Gardeners of Eden are hosting their second Spring Garden Clean-Up Day of the Conservation Site this Saturday, April 7th and could use your help! Please join us from 8:00 to 11:00 a.m. Be sure to bring tools, gloves and safety equipment.

This is a great opportunity for students to earn service hours and parents to earn volunteer hours!

Spring Raffle Tickets

April 5th is our first "Ticket Turn-in Thursday" for Spring Fling raffle tickets! Students - bring your raffle ticket envelopes containing sold raffle tickets with money collected and turn in to your homeroom teacher. Spring Fling t-shirts (earned for selling 8 raffle ticket books) can be worn to school with uniform bottoms each Thursday in April. Students' names will be entered into a weekly Colt prize drawing for every 12 books sold. Top 2 sellers will win a $100 Amazon gift card. And…if we reach our $23k goal, CCCS students will win a fun day on the Monday after Spring Fling, April 30th! Students will enjoy Pajama Day, a half day read-a-thon, music during lunch and ….Dr. McCoy will be dressed according to the whims of the 8th grade class!

The CCCS community supports the parish Spring Fling raffle with the sales of raffle tickets. A portion of the proceeds benefit our students by providing operating dollars to the school. This fundraising helps to bridge the gap between tuition fees and the actual cost to educate each student.

Ticket counters needed! We need help with counting raffle tickets on “Ticket Turn-in Thursdays” in April and the last Friday of April. Meet in the Jones room at 8:00 a.m. for coffee and counting. Get volunteer hours!

Thanks for your support in advance!
