We are counting down the days to our Winter Wonderland Jr. Cougar Carnival happening this Saturday, 2/5 from 9:30 -11:30 am in the gym!!! Whoop! Whoop! Excitement, enthusiasm, and energetic eagerness fill our hearts with jolly, jovial JOY as we eagerly anticipate all the fabulous fun and heart-filling fellowship to be had playing games, jumping in the bounce house, picking prizes, eating snacks, and much more too! 

Admission is FREE so be sure to share the love (the Lord's and ours ๐Ÿ’“ :) and invite some of your beloved family and friends to join in the JOY with us! Tickets for fun and games will be available for purchase at the door with CASH or CHECK ONLY ๐Ÿ’ธ. (We are going old school ๐Ÿซ.:)

We can't wait to see ๐Ÿ‘ you on Saturday so we can play all day (or at least for a couple of hours ☺) and melt our hearts together๐Ÿ’• as we frolic from the frost into our cozy Jr. Cougar Carnival!




For we are his workmanship, 
created in Christ Jesus for good works, 
which God prepared beforehand, 
that we should walk in them.
 Ephesians 2:10

On Thursday, 2/3 from 8:15 - 9:00 am in the gym, our Jr. Cougars will be led in worship through music and singing in our elementary chapel by our newly formed Middle School Worship Team under the direction of Mr. Elllis. Whoop! Whoop! They will also be led worship through learning and the Word by our CCS High School National Honor Society. The high school students in the National Honor Society will be sharing with our Jr. Cougars the JOY that comes by being the hands and feet of Jesus and blessing His children that have needs greater than our own. Your Jr. Cougars and families will have the opportunity to fill a baby bottle with change, dollars, and/or checks and return them to CCS on Friday, February 11th. (Our hope and goal is for each baby bottle to be filled with the blessing of $5.) The baby bottles will then be returned to Mercy Ministries Of Reading to help mommas and babies in need.

"Truly, I say to you,
 as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers (and sisters), 
you did to me." 
Matthew 25:40

Jr. Cougars Go and Grow...in Jesus with JOY!

  


Elementary Chapel +The Great Commission +
Anchored Ministries + Christmas TOYS
"Growing in Jesus with JOY!"

Elementary chapel is one of my favorite JOYS of our days, weeks, and school year as the elementary principal here at CCS. I am so blessed, encouraged, humbled, and inspired when I hear our precious Jr. Cougars worshipping the Lord and singing His praises together and this year is no different! To add to all the JOYS that elementary chapel holds, with lots of prayer and the help of other elementary dream members, not only did the Lord lay before me the focus verses and theme (see above:)  for this year but also the vision to have Jr. Cougar chapel small groups. 

It is amazing to witness the pairing of our fifth graders leading our second graders, our fourth graders leading our first graders, and our third graders leading our kindergarteners in small groups and connecting together to discuss and share all that God is teaching and doing in and through them. 

In elementary chapel on Thursday we reviewed our "anchor verses" for the 2021/22 school with a focus on Jesus and the Great Commission.  As always, God's timing was perfect for this focus teaching because, Mr. Jack Greenly, our Director of Student Life, had the gift of a  plan for us to help to share love of Jesus in the world right here in our own community.
Mr. Greenly explained that working in partnership together with Anchored Ministries in Elverson, Jr. Cougars have the opportunity to bless and bring JOY to other littles and bigs just like them, with toys for Christmas! As the Lord leads your family, your Jr. Cougars can donate new, unwrapped toys to a child in the community that might not have any gifts under their tree on Christmas morning.


You can send in these new, unwrapped toys to school with your Jr. Cougars to give to their teachers between now and December 1st. Then on December 1st, during an all school chapel, Anchored Ministries will be here so we can share God's blessings with them of the toys from our Jr. Cougars, as well as the gift wrapping supplies donated by our middle school students, and gift cards donated high school students. (All parents are invited to attend this special chapel at 8:15 am in the gym.:) We can't wait to celebrate the love of Jesus and His gifts to us and to our local brothers and sisters during this special chapel and precious Christmas season.  




'Tis the season for cold and snow...
well almost! :)
But the Jr. Cougars still love to get up and go!
It's so much fun to get outside to run and play
each and every sunny day and maybe the cloudy ones too. 
As long as the temperature is not too much below the freezing mark of 32.
So please be sure they have lots of cold weather gear,
 like coats and hats and gloves 
to keep your littles (and bigs) warm and cozy and bundled with love!

No Shorts Please...

Just a gentle reminder that Jr. Cougars (and Cougars) should not wear shorts or or leggings with shorts between November 1 and April 1 unless the temperature in Morgantown is 60 degrees or higher. 

Modest shorts (5 inch inseam) or capri pants may be worn for the months of August, September, October, April, May, and June. In the other school months when the local (Morgantown) forecast is 60 degrees or higher students may wear shorts that meet CCS standards. 

This information as well as tons of other important information can be found in our CCS Parent/Student Handbook.

Another big THANK YOU to all of our generous Jr. Cougar families for your contributions to the baskets as well!  The baskets and YOU are blessings to our school!
