Jr. Cougars + Singing Praises + God’s Word + Encouragement = Elementary Chapel JOY

With the help and creativity of our fabulous fourth graders, the music leadership of Mrs. Stone, the book How Full Is Your Bucket, and of course God’s Word, as well as reflecting on what we learned from the NED Show, last Friday’s chapel was filled with encouragement, growth opportunities, and of course fun, cheering, laughter, and JOY!

“Do good deeds to make a drop!
Fill their buckets to the top.”
(A cheer written for our chapel by our fabulous fourth graders.)

“So if there is any encouragement in Christ, any comfort from love, any participation in the Spirit, any affection and sympathy, complete my joy by being of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind.”      
Phillippians 2:1-2
(A verse shared in our chapel by our fabulous fourth graders.)

School Calendar Change!

On Monday, 2/13/17, the faculty and staff of our school will be having an In-Service Day; therefore, our Jr. Cougars will NOT have school on that day. This date was not on our original school calendar. It is a change to the calendar.

Jr. Cougar Art Club Coming Soon!

Mrs. Erica DeHart, an artist/painter, professional baker/cake decorator, and CCS mom, is offering a special Jr. Cougars Art Club. During the first two sessions, Jr. Cougars in grades 2-5 will try their hands and talents at painting a masterpiece of their own. During session three they will together create a masterpiece that we will proudly hang and display in our Jr. Cougar Cafe. Sessions are scheduled to meet on three Mondays in February and March, beginning Monday, 2/6, from 2:45 - 4:15 pm in the Jr. Cougar Cafe/elementary lunchroom. The remaining dates are 2/27 and 3/6. There will be a materials fee for this club which will soon follow once all the materials have been ordered. (I anticipate the cost being somewhere between $10 and $20.) Mrs. DeHart is generously volunteering her expertise and time! If your Jr. Cougar is interested in participating in this creative and fun club, just email me at susan.brenner@conestogachristian.net to register by Wednesday, 2/1/17, and then send in the materials fee by the first session on 2/6/17.  

Jr. Cougars Can Try a New Sport

Under the coaching of Mr. Parris and our varsity basketball teams, our Jr. Cougars 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade boys and girls can have a ball of a time learning and practicing the finer points of basketball at a Basketball Clinic being planned for this coming Monday, January 30, from 3:00 - 4:00 pm in the CCS gym. After participating in the clinic, our Jr. Cougar 4th and 5th grade athletes will then have the chance at a basketball scrimmage during halftime of the varsity girls basketball game on Friday night, February 3, beginning at 6:00 pm.
Jr. Cougars in 1st and 2nd graders are invited to attend the Friday night games and participate in a basketball shoot out also happening at halftime during the girls varsity basketball game. Whoop! Whoop! The cost of the clinic is $10. This cost includes a Jr. Cougars t-shirt.

Please let Mrs. Brenner know by this Thursday, 1/26/17, if your third, fourth, or fifth grade Jr. Cougar would like to sign up for the Jr. Cougar Basketball Clinic. Also, please let me know your child’s YOUTH t-shirt size. (The choices are small, medium, large, and extra-large.)
Payment is due by Monday, 1/30/17.

If your child is in grade 1 or 2 and you would like to order a t-shirt for him/her, please email Mrs. Brenner by this Thursday, 1/26/17. Also, please let me know your child’s YOUTH t-shirt size. (The choices are small, medium, large, and extra-large.) The cost of each t-shirt is $8.00. Payment is due by Monday, 1/30/17.
