CCS Families,

We had some fantastic student performances this past week to complete
the first semester. Our concert band gave stellar performances at
Charleston Yacht Club and Second Sunday on King Street. They were
great ambassadors for our school last weekend. Last night, the 4th
grade Beginner Band and Upper School Concert Band put on an excellent
Christmas concert for our families and friends. We are very proud of
Mrs. Draftz, our band director, and all of our band students.

Finally, today we had our school wide spelling bee. We had 18
participants from grades 3-8. We are proud of all the students.
Congratulations to our top three spellers: First place, Joshua (Gr
7); Second place, Carson (Gr 8); Third place, Brendan (Gr 7). They
will represent our school in the Diocesan Coastal Spelling Bee in the

Have a Holy Christmas and Blessed New Year!

Yours in Christ,

Fred McKay

Advent Prayer

Lord God, may we, your people, who look forward to the birthday of
Christ – experience
the joy of salvation – and celebrate that feast with love and thanksgiving. We ask this
through our Lord – Jesus – Christ, your
Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for
ever and ever. Amen.

5th & 6th Grade Special Art!

The Special Arts class created an enlargement of Michelangelo’s
“Delphic Sibyl”. The students used chalk and their creation measures
9′ x 6′.

If you have the opportunity you can see this beautiful work of art in
the Auditorium!

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.
