OSU won the Book Fair Fundraiser competition. In honor of the competition, you can wear your favorite team shirt, jersey or colors with spirit wear bottoms OR wear spirit wear on Friday, November 22nd. Over $300 was raised and books have been sent to Webbers Falls School. Thanks to all who participated.

Thank you for helping spread the love of Jesus to children in need by packing shoeboxes with fantastic items! The shoeboxes the CCS students packed will definitely bless many children around the world.

CCS LS is participating in a coat drive. We would love to have students donate a new OR gently used coat (hat or gloves are also welcome) in the LS Lobby! Our goal is to donate 1,000 coats to be taken to the City Center which is an inner city outreach program. The deadline to donate a coat is Wednesday, November 20.

Help us deck the halls with any gently used (or new!) Christmas décor (trees, garlands, wreaths, bows, etc.). We specifically need a new 12′ pre-lit tree for the front entrance, but would love to know more about other items you have available prior to November 20. Please contact Iman Dangora, 405-635-4811, to make arrangements for delivery of your item(s). Thank you!

The Little Knights Wrestling program for students in K-6th grades will start on Monday, November 4 at 5:30 pm in the Crossings wrestling room. The program meets twice each week, November through January. The cost is $100 per wrestler. Little Knights Wrestling offers a great opportunity to develop basic wrestling skills at a young age. Wrestlers will need workout gear (shorts and t-shirt) and wrestling shoes. See the flyer for more information. Register online and turn in payment to the front desk.

We have had numerous library books returned to the library with water damage. While we know this is probably due to water bottles being in backpacks, the book usually needs to be replaced. So, if your child returns a book with water damage, a replacement fee will be sent home with your child. Thank you for trying to help us keep our books looking brand new.

Join us during lunch time for 5th and 6th grade Book Club! You will have first access to our new books in the library, hear some book talks on new books, and get to discuss what you are reading with other students who love to read. Bring your lunch (a lunch from home is preferred) to the library on Wednesday, November 20, during lunch to attend. See Mrs. Schenk if you have any questions.

Each year, our eighth grade students partner with Crossings Community Church to distribute backpacks with Christmas gifts at one of our local elementary schools. On Monday, December 9, we will be distributing the backpacks at Stanley Hupfeld Academy from 9:30-10:30 am. Our buses will leave the school at 9:00 am. Our students will be leading a Christmas party complete with a craft, songs, snacks, gifts and the biblical Christmas story. It is amazing to see our kids serve the community by blessing other students with gifts and the true meaning of Christmas. To ensure this outing is a success, we are asking for parent volunteers to meet us at Stanley Hupfeld to help in the classrooms. There are 15 classrooms and our goal is to have 2 adults present in each room while our students lead activities and deliver backpacks. Please contact the middle school office if you are willing and able to attend. Thank you!
