Principal’s Message February 3, 2017

Dear CCS Families,

As Catholic Schools Week comes to a close, I want you to know how proud the teachers, staff and I are of the students for their participation and school spirit this week.  The week started last Sunday with many students wearing their school Mass day uniforms to Sunday Mass at their parish.

The students, with guidance from their teachers, completed two service projects: creating Valentine’s cards for active duty military personnel and making colorful fleece blankets for patients at MUSC Children’s Hospital.

We had two guest speakers who shared their vocation stories with the students: Father Miles talked about his journey to becoming a priest and Mr. Bedford talked about starting his teaching career at CCS and currently serving as Principal of Meeting Street Academy.

The week concluded with School Spirit Day and Pep Rally on Friday with performances by the concert band and cheerleaders and recognition of all of our basketball teams.  We have had a wonderful celebration of our Catholic school!  Go Saints!

Yours in Christ,

Fred McKay

Principal's Message January 27, 2017

Dear CCS Families and Friends,

This coming week, Charleston Catholic, as well as Catholic schools
throughout the country, will celebrate Catholic Schools Week - theme
is Communities of Faith, Knowledge and Service.  This year, the focus
is on service.  We will have two service projects for the students
during the week.  The first project is the "No Sew Blanket".  Each
homeroom class will make a blanket that we will donate to MUSC
Children's Hospital, because we have had some students recently, and
over the years, who have been patients there.  The second project is
creating Valentine's Day cards for active duty military personnel. 
Our "buddy classes" will work on these together with younger students
doing the art work and older students writing the "thank you for your
service" message for the cards. Service projects help students have
tangible experiences of living out the Gospel message to put others

Thank you to all of our school families who completed the survey on
Catholic Identity Program Effectiveness for our Accreditation report.
 The Diocese will gather data from all of our Catholic schools in
preparation for the visit by the Accreditation team in the first week
in April.  We had responses from 60% of our school families, and this
is an excellent participation rate.

Yours in Christ,

Fred McKay
