young people.In 2012 The Diocese of Charleston revised The Policy
Concerning Allegations of Sexual Misconduct or Abuse of a minor by
Church Personnel and adopted the updated Code of Conduct for Church

Dear CCS Families,
On Monday, October 6th, all CCS Families will receive an email asking
you to take a survey as part of our school's Internal Review for
Accreditation. We would like for every family to complete the
survey. The estimated time for the survey is 15 minutes. You will
have two weeks to take the survey. The results are anonymous, and
the feedback will help with our school improvement plans for the rest
of this school year and future years. Thank you for your attention
to this matter.
In addition, the upper school students (grades 5-8) will take a
survey in class for the Internal Review. They will complete the
survey within the next two weeks.
Please make plans to attend our next PTO meeting on October 14. Our
PTO meetings are opportunities for us to gather as a school community
of adults -- Parents and Teachers. Our guest speaker for the meeting
will be Mr. Patrick Finneran, Principal of Bishop England High
School. As you might know, Bishop England is having a year-long
celebration of 100 years of providing Catholic education in
Charleston. BEHS was founded in 1915.
Have a wonderful weekend.
Yours in Christ,
The Charleston Catholic School

This past week, the Catholic Church celebrated
the feast day of the Archangels
(Gabriel, Michael and Raphael) on
September 29 and the Guardian Angels

Angel of God, my guardian dear,
To whom his love commits me here;
Ever this day be at my side, To light and guard,
to rule and guide.

The Charleston Catholic School educates a socially diverse student
body in a nurturing family environment within the sacred tradition
and teachings of the Roman Catholic Church. Teachers challenge the
students to discover their own unique gifts through creative inquiry
and critical thinking in the core academic subjects and the arts.
Our small, loving environment enables students to learn self
discipline through responsible decision-making and to develop a sense
of compassion for others.
