Principal’s Message

August 22, 2014

Dear CCS Families,

We are off to a tremendous school year. The students are happy to be
back at school and we are thrilled to begin the school year on one
campus.

We began our week with a Blessing of the new playground area. We are
very appreciative of all the efforts made to raise the funds needed
for the new playground surface. Mr. Eddie Keating worked tirelessly
to raise money and supervise the entire project, as he carried out
Mrs. Keatings final wishes. We know Mrs. Keating is smiling down as
she watches the students thoroughly enjoying themselves. Thank you
Father Allen for Blessing the area. Finally thank you to City
Councilman Mitchell our neighbor for attending the ceremony. It was a
beautiful day and a wonderful tribute to Mrs. Keating.

Just a friendly reminder to everyone, that morning drop off is 7:30
am. Teachers arrive between 7:15 and 7:30 am. Please be courteous
to leave the parking spaces open for them so they may get to their
classrooms in time to welcome students for the day. Teachers arrive
at carpool duty at 7:30 am.

We hope you enjoy your weekend and look forward to seeing everyone
Monday morning.

Yours in Christ,

Fred McKay

Spiritual Reflection

Prayer for a New School Year

Spirit of God, fill our hearts with a desire to seek truth and
rejoice in beauty.
Help us to know what is pleasing to You and to understand what is
right and good in Your sight.
Give us the Spirit of Learning that we may please You by our thoughts
and love You in Your creation.
Give all teachers Your constant encouragement and guide them in their
good work.
Spirit of God, make us effective witnesses of Your truth to all whose
lives we touch. We ask this in the name of Jesus the Lord.
Amen.

The Playground is now OPEN!!

Mission Statement

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.
