Dear CCS Families,

The school year is off to a wonderful start. Everyone is getting used
to being back in a routine and Thursday, September 4th, we welcome
everyone to Open House. This is a wonderful opportunity to meet your
children’s teachers and have a chance to see their classrooms. Open
House begins at 5:30 PM. There will be parking available at Trojan
Labor, After School House and The Long Shoremen’s Association parking
lots, located on King Street across from the school. Ms. Lisa and
some of the after care staff will be available to watch students
while you go to the classrooms.

On Tuesday, we will welcome our new Music and Chorus teacher Mrs.
Metzler. We are excited to have her as part of our CCS family.

Please be sure to check your communication envelopes on Tuesday. They
will contain important information about Grandparents Day.

We would like to remind everyone that Monday is Labor Day, and we hope
everyone enjoys safe and happy Holiday.

Yours in Christ,

Fred McKay

Spiritual Reflection

In honor of the Labor Day holiday, here is a prayer for the
intercession of St. Joseph, patron saint of workers.
A Catholic Prayer for WorkersO glorious Joseph! Who concealed your
incomparable and regal dignity of custodian of Jesus and of the
Virgin Mary under the humble appearance of a craftsman and provided
for them with your work, protect with loving power your sons,
especially entrusted to you.

You know their anxieties and sufferings, because you yourself
experienced them at the side of Jesus and of His Mother. Do not allow
them, oppressed by so many worries, to forget the purpose for which
they were created by God. Do not allow the seeds of distrust to take
hold of their immortal souls. Remind all the workers that in the
fields, in factories, in mines, and in scientific laboratories, they
are not working, rejoicing, or suffering alone, but at their side is
Jesus, with Mary, His Mother and ours, to sustain them, to dry the
sweat of their brow, giving value to their toil. Teach them to turn
work into a very high instrument of sanctification as you did. Amen.

-Blessed Pope John XXIII

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.
