A Note from the Principal

Well, I hope that everyone had some time to rest and relax over Spring Break. Mother Nature is sure playing tricks with us regarding our “spring” weather. But, when we realize that God is in control we can have a peace that only He can provide.

We are on the downhill slope and the end of the school year will be upon us before we know it. So many exciting things will be happening over the next couple of months, please make sure you are checking our Facebook page, reading your weekly CCS Newsletter, checking your email, text messages and Remind messages. We don’t want anyone to miss out on fellowship opportunities for our students, staff and families.

God is doing great things at CCS and we are so excited!

“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” Philippians 4:13
