CCS Families and Friends,

Today marks the end of the third quarter of the academic year. It is
amazing how time flies, and before we know it Easter will be here.
This past week was another occasion for milestones at Charleston


This past Monday, our Saints Golf team had their first match in the
City of Charleston Middle School Golf League. This was our first
ever golf match (we just started a golf team a few weeks ago), and
our Saints Golfers finished in 5th place out of 10 teams. This
coming Monday, March 14, will be their second golf outing. Go

Our tennis season got underway this week. The Blue Saints team
(grades 3-4) and Black Saints team (5th grade) played competitive
matches, and they did very well. Next week, the White Saints (grades
6-8) and Red Saints (grades 5-8) teams will have their first matches.
Good luck to all of our tennis teams this season.

Congratulations to our top spellers, Brendan and Josh, for their
excellent representation of CCS and the Diocese in the Post & Courier
Spelling Bee last night. Out of 50 students, they finished 13th and
14th. We are proud of their accomplishments in spelling this year.

Fourth Quarter begins on Monday, March 14, and students will wear
their summer uniforms (except on Wednesdays when they will wear their
Mass day uniforms).

Yours in Christ,

Fred McKay

Spiritual Reflection

In this Jubilee Year, may the Church echo the word of God that
resounds strong and clear as a message and sign of pardon, strength,
aid, and love. May she never tire of extending mercy and be ever
patient in offering compassion and comfort. May the Church
become the voice of every man and woman…
Pope Francis, The Name of God Is Mercy

Post & Courier Spellbound Participants

Congratulations Brendan and Joshua! They placed 13th and 14th
(respectively) out of 50 at the Spellbound Spelling Bee last night!
Way to go Saints!

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.
