As we are journeying through this week, our senses are in tune to the sights, sounds, smells, and tastes leading up to our CCS 43rd Annual Chicken BBQ and Auction. Here are a few important highlights to assist you in planning the rest your week and weekend.
As you know this Friday, 10/21/16, is our annual Chicken Barbecue. Be prepared to have your taste buds tickled and your bellies filled to the max!
Here are a few important details that you need to know about dismissal on this day:
-Our Preschool students enrolled in “Little Conestoga Preschool” will be dismissed at 11:00 am.
-All elementary students will be dismissed at 11:30 am.
-There is NO BUSING for students who usually take the school bus home if you are in the ELANCO or PEQUEA VALLEY school districts. Students who reside in those districts must have someone plan to pick them up in the car line for our 11:30 am dismissal time. (At 11:30 am bus riders will be dismissed first. Car riders will be dismissed once all buses have left the CCS parking lot.)
Service Day 2016
Before we feast on chicken, as a kickoff to our CCS 43rd Annual BBQ & Auction, this year we are adding a student service component to Friday morning before the barbecue. Our Cougars of all sizes will be out and about serving in a variety of ways throughout our campus and surrounding community during our CCS Service Day 2016. This day of service aligns with the vision for our school which is to provide a quality education while developing critical thinking skills, nurturing Christ-like character, and equipping students for a life of discipleship and SERVICE.

A definite highlight of our school Auction are the class baskets, and this year is no exception! First, let me personally say a great big THANK YOU to the parents who took the lead for each grade, Preschool through fifth, in communicating, organizing, collecting, and assembling this year's baskets! Another big THANK YOU to everyone for your generous contributions to the baskets as well! The baskets and YOU are awesome! The final steps in the basket process are the big moments of bidding on and selling them at the Auction. These exciting components in the class basket process are happening this Saturday, 10/22/16, beginning at 10:30 am. Please help your child to join with his/her teacher and class at about 10:25 am to present each basket and encourage bidders to raise their hands in support of our beloved CCS and all of our little and big kiddos!
After the basket fun you can head over for even more fun at the children’s area. Children can enjoy entertainment in the kids' area with activities, games and prizes, a train ride, and more all starting at 10 am. With the purchase of a $6 wristband, children are able to play all day in a fun, safe, supervised environment! (A maximum charge of $20 per family.) Popcorn is also available for $1.
Can’t wait to see you there!
Jr. Cougars Running Club
“…let us run with endurance the race that is set before us.”
It is hard to believe that the Jr. Cougars Running Club is wrapping up the season over the next two weeks. To celebrate and share our successes, we are hosting a Jr. Cougar Fun Run “under the lights,” next Tuesday, 10/25/16, at 6:00 pm. ALL of our Jr. Cougars and their families are invited to walk, run, cheer, and have fun with us! Refreshments will be available for purchase.
Moms In Prayer
After having had Moms in Prayer meet for a couple of weeks, the women involved have decided to make a change to the schedule. The plan is to have MIP every other week, on the Fridays when there is not an Elementary Chapel. Since the next two months are a little tricky with days off and chapel, here are the dates that Moms in Prayer will be meeting: October 14 and 28, November 4, and December 16. Time and location remain the same: 8:30 am at the Allans’ house, 94 Overlook Rd. Morgantown.
Thank you for allowing CCS to partner
with the Lord and you to share this part of your child's journey
in growing spiritually, academically, socially, emotionally, and physically.
GO Jr. COUGARS! Whoop! Whoop!
