CCS Families,

As part of our celebration of the 25 years of The Charleston Catholic
School, we are recognizing the various special arts and student
activities that are integral components of our students’ experience.
In September, we celebrated the Visual Arts; in October, we
celebrated Creative Writing; in November, we celebrated Music; in
December, we are celebrating Drama. We look forward to our Lower
School Arts performances next Thursday, Dec. 10, when our Movement,
Chorus and Drama classes will have their Christmas programs. Also,
our Third Grade Chorus will perform “live” on the FM Y102.5 radio
station at 5pm on Friday, Dec. 11.

Next week, on Tuesday, Dec. 8, we will celebrate the Holy Day of the
Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary. All are welcome to
attend Mass with our school community at 9:00 a.m. in Sacred Heart
Church. The students will follow a Wednesday class schedule on
Tuesday (Mass day uniforms), and they will follow a Tuesday class
schedule on Wednesday (PE uniforms for Grades 7, 5, 3, K5 and 1).

Yours in Christ,

Fred McKay

Advent Prayer

Lord, fill our hearts with your love, and as you revealed to us by an
angel – the coming of your Son as man, so lead us through his suffering and
death to the glory – of his resurrection, for he lives and reigns with you and the Holy
Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

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.
