CCS Families and Friends,

Congratulations are in order for our upper school math and science
club. This past Saturday, our students competed in the bridge
building competition at the Citadel that was sponsored by the
Engineering Department. Our students submitted several bridges in
the competition and we are proud of their efforts and
accomplishments. We won several trophies for their work. See the
picture and caption below for the details of the awards.

As our basketball season winds down, I would like to recognize some
of our teams at this time. We are proud of the effort,
sportsmanship, and attitude of our Saints teams and the leadership of
our coaches. Our Junior Boys and Junior Girls have concluded their
seasons. Our Senior Boys have concluded their regular seasons and
will compete in the Diocese of Charleston Youth Basketball Tournament
in Aiken next weekend. Our Senior Girls have completed their regular
seasons and will play in the Championship Game of the Parochial
League this Sunday at 1:30 p.m. at Bishop England High School Gym.
Please support our Lady Saints in person or in spirit as they attempt
to finish undefeated and as champions. In addition, they too will
compete in the Diocesan tournament in Aiken next weekend. Go Saints!

Our 7/8 coed team, Boys 9/10 team and Girls 9/10 team still have some
games to play next week and in early March in the St. Joseph league.
Best wishes to them in their upcoming games. Also, we are very
grateful to our Saints Cheerleaders for leading the cheers at various
games this season. We are proud of all of our cheerleaders and
basketball players.

Yours in Christ,

Fred McKay

Spiritual Reflection

Peace Prayer of St. Francis

make me an instrument of your peace.
Where there is hatred,
let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
and where there is sadness, joy.

O Divine Master,
grant that I may not so much seek
to be consoled as to console;
to be understood as to understand;
to be loved as to love;
for it is in giving
that we receive;
it is in pardoning
that we are pardoned;
and it is in dying
that we are born to eternal life.

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.
