Parents Who Pray
Parents Who Pray is off to a great start this year! We have been praying for each of our CCS students to receive the spirit of wisdom and revelation, so they may know Jesus better, to have the eyes of their heart enlightened so they may know the hope to which He has called them, and to experience His incomparably great power (Ephesians 1:17-19). It is an awesome privilege to bring our students, families and school staff before the very throne of God. We would love to have you join us on Wednesday mornings from 8:30-9:30 am in the hospitality room in the US competition gymnasium. FOR PARENTS WHO NEED TO BRING A YOUNGER CHILD WITH YOU – there will be an US student available from 8:30-9:05 am to play with your child while you join us in prayer.

Parents, it is time to order your Blusource school supply kit. Per the teachers’ requests, some items were upgraded to brand names (Mead, Ziploc, et.) rather than a generic alternative. We believe these upgraded items will last through the school year and prevent the need for replacement by you or the teachers. Additionally, please note that Kinder mats are NOT included in the supply kits and are an additional selection before you check out. The order deadline is Friday, June 28. Click here to order online and take the hassle out of shopping for school supplies! If you wish to purchase school supplies yourself, lists for each grade are available here. If you have questions or need assistance, please contact Kitty Ensiminger at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We have started to accumulate jackets, water bottles, etc. in the lost and found. Please be sure and check the lost and found for missing items.
