Principal’s Message

Dear CCS Families and Friends,

Today our country celebrates Veterans Day (Nov. 11). We are grateful
for the service of all veterans.

On Sunday, Nov. 13, Sacred Heart Church will honor veterans following
the 11:15AM Mass with a breakfast and entertainment by our CCS
Concert Band in the school’s auditorium. All are welcome to attend
as we pay tribute to all veterans.

Next Wednesday, our Upper School Drama class will perform “The Jungle
Book” at 6PM in the CCS Auditorium. Everyone is welcome to attend.

Yours in Christ,

Fred McKay

Beautiful Art Work!

Congratulations to Luca for placing 3rd at The Coastal Carolina Fair
Art Competition. He created a block print work of art entitled
“Mission to Mars”.

Spiritual Reflection

Feast Day of St. Martin of Tours, Patron Saint for Soldiers.

For the Safety of Soldiers

Almighty and eternal God,
those who take refuge in you will be glad
and forever will shout for joy.
Protect these soldiers as they discharge their duties.
Protect them with the shield of your strength
and keep them safe from all evil and harm.
May the power of your love enable them to return home
in safety, that with all who love them,
they may ever praise you for your loving care.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.

Happy Veterans Day!

We are very grateful to Mr. Mike Pickett, our Facility Maintenance
Technician, who served our country as a Marine for six years.

The students enjoyed Mr. Pickett’s talk about his military experience
and the meaning of Veterans Day.
