Principal’s Message

Dear CCS Families and Friends,

I appreciate the outstanding effort of our students and teachers
during standardized testing this week. We know that this can be a
stressful time, especially with the change in schedules and routines.
Next week, we return to a regular class schedule and typical
structure in place.

We are not sending home any paper copies of progress reports this
school year, since we are using the Grade Book on RenWeb and parents
have access to view their children’s grades throughout the marking
period. We will create report cards at the end of each quarter that
we will email or send home. K4 & K5 Progress Reports will be sent
home at the end of each quarter. If any family is having difficulty
accessing their children’s grades through Parent Web, please let us
know and we will assist you.

We are proud of our CCS Senior and Junior Volleyball teams who have
been demonstrating great effort, attitude and sportsmanship on the
court this Fall. They have been excellent representatives of our
school. Go Saints!

Thank you to our Fifth Grade Class and Sr. Richarde for being great
ambassadors for CCS on their field trip to Fort Sumter last Friday.
One of our teachers was in the airport on Friday afternoon waiting to
get on the plane when she struck up a conversation with another
passenger. When she communicated that she was a teacher at CCS, the
other person said that she was so impressed with the good behavior
and good manners of our fifth graders as that person had been
visiting Fort Sumter earlier in the day. This person told our
teacher that the students were great ambassadors for our school.

Yours in Christ,

Fred McKay
Principal

Spiritual Reflection

If we really want to pray,

we must first learn to listen:

for in the silence of the heart God speaks.

And to be able to hear God,

we need a clean heart.

Let us listen to God,

to what he has to say.

We cannot speak unless we have listened,

unless we have made our connection with God.

From the fullness of the heart,

the mouth will speak,

the mind will think.

~Saint Teresa of Calcutta

Fort Sumter Field Trip

The 5th Grade enjoyed their tour of Ft. Sumter. They helped raise the
American Flag. The students were great ambassadors of The Charleston Catholic School.
We are proud of our Saints!

Principal’s Message

Dear CCS Families and Friends,

Next week is testing week and our child protection lessons for the
students. Testing begins promptly each morning after Morning Prayer,
and so it is critically important that students arrive to school on
time and having had a quality breakfast and good night’s sleep.

First Grade and Fourth Grade take the CogAT tests which measure a
student’s ability in several areas (verbal, nonverbal, and
quantitative). These tests are scored in two ways, according to age
and grade level.

Grades 3-8 take the Iowa Tests of Basic Skills. These achievement
tests cover many areas: reading, written expression, vocabulary,
capitalization, punctuation, spelling, social studies, science, and
math. These tests are scored according to age and grade level. They
measure a student’s achievement relative to other students on a
national scale.

On Friday, our religion teachers in grades K5 to 8th will instruct
the students in child protection lessons as required by the Diocese
annually. This year’s topic is Touching Safety Rules. The lessons
are arranged according to grade levels: K5-2nd; 3rd-5th; 6th-8th.
The Child Protection program is part of the overall effort of the
Diocese of Charleston to comply with the Charter for the Protection
of Children established by the U.S. Catholic Bishops.

There will be no School Mass next week since the priests in our
Diocese will be on retreat from Monday to Thursday. Our next School
Mass will be September 28th.

Yours in Christ,

Fred McKay
Principal

Spiritual Reflection

The most natural thing is the family life.

What keeps the family together,

what nourishes the life of the family together,

is that surrender to each other;

is that obedience;

is that accepting of each other.

Math & Science Class

The Math & Science Class students were busy participating in many
experiments this week. This particular experiment involved dry ice.
Mrs. Siedentop and Mr. Fields teach this special area class.

Principal’s Message

Dear CCS Families and Friends,

We will open up the Parent Web as part of the RenWeb school
management system this weekend. We are going to start with Grades 3-8
now, then add Gr. 1-2 in a few weeks, and finally K4 & K5 before the
end of the quarter. We will email instructions to families on how to
set up your login and password so that you will have access to your
family information and to your own children’s student information.
You will get this email today (Friday). For families with students
in grades 3-8, please set up your account over the weekend. If you
have any difficulty, email the school office on Monday and we will
help you.

Under the Student Information, you will be able to see information on
your child’s attendance, behavior and grades. The student “home
page” is a summary, and then you can click on the details on any of
these categories. For the student’s Gradebook Progress Report, you
will see a “numerical average” on the summary page and then you can
click on the “numerical average” and you will see the details of all
graded assignments, quizzes, tests, etc. For the special area
classes, grades will appear for these classes at the end of the
quarter (art, band, chorus, computer, drama, physical education,
etc.).

Under the Family Information, please check all of the data for
accuracy. Let the office know if any changes need to be made,
especially email addresses and phone numbers, so that we can update
your family information in our emergency alert system. You will also
be able to see billing information for After Care fees.

We expect the RenWeb school management system will enhance the
communication between home and school.

Yours in Christ,

Fred McKay
Principal

Spiritual Reflection

A Prayer for World Peace

Lord, we pray for the power to be gentle;

the strength to be forgiving;

the patience to be understanding;

and the endurance to accept the consequences of

holding to what we believe to be right.

May we put our trust in the power of good

to overcome evil and the power of love to overcome

hatred.

We pray for the vision to see and the

faith to believe in a world emancipated

from violence, a new world where fear shall

no longer lead men to commit injustice,

nor selfishness make them bring suffering to others.

Help us to devote our whole life and thought

and energy to the task of making peace,

praying always for the inspiration and

the power to fulfill the destiny for which we and

all men were created.

New Sails on the Playground!

Thank you Mr. Eddie Keating for your hard work and getting the final
sail installed on the playground! We appreciate everyone’s hard work,
contributions and dedication to the playground fund!

Advisor, for working with our student leaders.

“Be kind and merciful.

Let no one ever come to you

without leaving better and happier.

Be a living expression of God’s kindness:

To children, to the poor,

to all who suffer and are lonely,

give always a happy smile.

Give them not only your care, but also your heart.”
