Safe Environment Program:

The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops established the
Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People in 2002. The
Charter has the goal for creating a safe environment for children and
young people.In 2012 The Diocese of Charleston revised The Policy
Concerning Allegations of Sexual Misconduct or Abuse of a minor by
Church Personnel and adopted the updated Code of Conduct for Church
Personnel. This policy works in conjunction with the Charter.The
Charleston Catholic School operates under the Code of Conduct for
Church Personnel for all of its employees and volunteers. – http://

CCS Families,

We are blessed to have a school community in which people come
together and rally around one another in good times and challenging
times. Just about every week in the school year, somebody or some
family experiences the Saints’ spirit. Thank you to everyone who
exemplifies the Golden Rule within our Saints community.

Next week, on Monday, report cards for second quarter will come home
in the Communications Envelope. Please contact your child’s teacher
if you want to make an appointment to discuss your child’s progress.

Next Friday, dismissal for the students will be 11:15 AM and then the
teachers will have professional development time in the afternoon.
Please make the necessary plans to pick up your children at this
early dismissal time. Thank you.

There will be no school Mass and no family rosary next week. All of
the priests in the diocese have meetings during the week for their
annual Convocation.

Next Saturday, January 16 is the Charleston Marathon. There will be
a water stop outside our school campus on King Street for the
runners. We are looking for volunteers, adults and children, to hand
out water to the runners as they pass by. More details about this
event will be sent home by email early next week.

Good luck to all of our Saints basketball teams this weekend in their
games, and best wishes to our band students who are participating in
the region band competition tomorrow. Go Saints!

Yours in Christ,

Fred McKay

Epiphany Prayer

O God

Who by a star guided the wise men

to the worship of your Son.

We pray to you to lead

the wise and great of every land,

that unto you every knee may bow, and every thought be brought into

Through Jesus Christ our Lord.

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.
