Principal’s Message

May 29, 2015

Dear CCS Families,

This Friday, May 29, we celebrate the youngest students on our campus
with our end of the year “moving up” ceremony for K4 and K5 children.
Jesus said to his disciples, let the little children come to me.

We are blessed with the innocence, enthusiasm, energy and love of
these precious children. They bring joy to everyone they meet on a
daily basis, and their zest for life is contagious.

We know that everything we need to know in life we learn in
Kindergarten. As Robert Fulghum says in his book, “All I Really Need
to Know I Learned in Kindergarten” (pages 4-5):
Share everythingPlay fairDon’t hit peoplePut things back where you
found them
Clean up your own messDon’t take things that aren’t yoursSay you’re
sorry when you hurt somebodyLive a balanced life – learn, think,
draw, paint, sing, dance, play and work every dayGo out into the
world, hold hands and stick together
Our Upper School Awards Ceremony will be Wednesday, June 3 at 10:30
a.m. in the Auditorium.

Graduation for the Class of 2015 will be Wednesday, June 3 — in
Sacred Heart Church — Awards Ceremony at 5:15 p.m. and Mass begins
at 6:00 p.m. Reception will follow Mass in the school Auditorium.

Final report cards will be mailed in mid-June.

First day of school for 2015-16 will be August 17.

Have a nice summer!

Fred McKay

Spiritual Reflection

This Sunday, the Church celebrates the Most Holy Trinity. In the
Gospel of Matthew, 28: 16-20, Jesus tells his disciples:
“Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in
the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.”

Every time we make the sign of the cross, we are praying symbolically
to the Holy Trinity and invoking the Holy Trinity in whatever prayer
we are offering.

2nd Grade May Crowning

The 2nd Grade Class led the May Crowning of Mary and enjoyed a
reception following Mass today. We congratulate all of our students
who have received their First Communion and keep in prayer our
remaining students who will receive their First Communion and
Confirmation in June.

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.
