Principal’s Message

Dear CCS Families and Friends,

First, thank you to all of our families who came to Open House this
past Tuesday evening. We are excited about the PTO’s plans for
activities for this school year. Also, we appreciate everyone who
signed up (or will sign up) for the various committees to implement
the activities. I want to recognize our PTO Officers for their
leadership this year:

Laura Simmons, President
Bayne Ritter, Vice President
Tara Enriquez, Secretary
Kelly Duffy, Treasurer

Second, we look forward to working with our student leaders on the
Student Council for this school year. Speeches and Elections were
held this past Wednesday and announced today. See below for the new
officers. There were multiple candidates for each position, and we
are proud of the courage that each student displayed in running for
an office as well as the sportsmanship demonstrated when the results
were announced. We will add Classroom Representatives from Grades
5-8 next week. Thank you to Sister Richarde, our Student Council
Advisor, for working with our student leaders.

Third, Tumbleston Photography Studios took our school pictures
(individual and class photos) this past Wednesday. If you have any
questions, please contact Tumbleston at 843-766-9400 or see their web
site: www.tumblestonschools.com –
The photo retake date will be September 28.

Enjoy the Labor Day Holiday. Please be safe on Friday with Tropical
Storm Hermine.

Yours in Christ,

Fred McKay
Principal

Spiritual Reflection

“Be kind and merciful.

Let no one ever come to you

without leaving better and happier.

Be a living expression of God’s kindness:

kindness in your face,

kindness in your eyes,

kindness in your smile,

kindness in your warm greeting.

To children, to the poor,

to all who suffer and are lonely,

give always a happy smile.

Give them not only your care, but also your heart.”

~Mother Teresa

“Canonization of Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta”
