CCS Families and Friends,

Tonight is the night! We celebrate 25 years of our Journey of
Imagination and Discovery at our Gala & Auction! Doors open at 6PM
— Cedar Room in the Cigar Factory. We look forward to a wonderful
evening of celebrating our history and raising funds for our school.
Thank you to everyone who is making tonight possible — Gala &
Auction Team, Volunteers, Sponsors, People / Businesses who donated
items for the auction, and everyone who purchased tickets. See you

We had a special visit from Sr. Carol Ann Kleindinst, our first CCS
principal, yesterday. She thoroughly enjoyed her tour of the campus,
the opportunity to meet and talk with the students at Morning Prayer,
and the chance to see some of the faculty members who worked with her
in the 1990’s. We hope you enjoyed the pictures we posted on
Facebook yesterday. Sr. Carol Ann will be at the Gala & Auction

This past week, CCS students earned academic awards in two different
essay contests, and our chess club had its final tournament of the

In the Serra Club 8th grade essay contest on vocations to the
priesthood or religious life, we had four winners: Emma, 1st place;
Carson, 2nd place; Vivi, 3rd place; Isabella, honorable mention.
Congratulations to these students.

Also, in the Knights of Columbus Patriotic Essay Contest for 8th
graders at the Charleston area Catholic schools (CCS, Nativity and
Blessed Sacrament), our CCS student, Carson, won first place. She
will be recognized at the Knights’ Awards Dinner on May 18.
Congratulations, Carson.
Finally, the chess club had a very successful year with some
outstanding tournament results by our CCS students in the past few
months. In their final tournament, Sam won first place in his
division, Arden won second place in his division, Matthew won fifth
place in his division, and Max won twelfth place in his division.
Congratulations to our CCS Chess Club.

Next Tuesday, May 3rd, we will celebrate Teacher Appreciation Day at
CCS. The PTO will provide gifts and lunch to all of our teachers and
staff on behalf of the students and our families. Thank you to all of
our teachers and staff for all that they do for our school!

Yours in Christ,

Spiritual Reflection

O Lord, We lift our eyes to see your glory. We open our hearts to
receive your love. We engage our minds to understand your truths.
We offer our songs to praise your name. Lord, as we give you our
lives, please take everything that we are, so that we may reveal your
blessings to the world. Amen.

Serra Club Essay Winners!
