Happy New Year!
Welcome 2018!

Although we are already a few weeks into the NEW year, we can still be celebrating it and the NEW life we have in Christ! We can also look forward to the many NEW and exciting or maybe challenging and stretching adventures God has planned for each one of us in 2018! As you may have heard, CCS has welcomed many NEW students (17, I think :) and their families to our school family this month, and 9 of the students are Jr. Cougars! Whoop! Whoop! We also have several NEW Jr. Cougar Clubs starting up! Adding to our fun and excitement, we are now busy preparing for our 4th and 5th grade Adventure Days, Jr. Cougar Week, and our Elementary Musical featuring our 4th and 5th graders with kindergarten and grades 1, 2, and 3 supporting them musically. So much excitement and JOY in the NEW year already!
