Principal’s Message

September 12, 2014

Dear CCS Families,

School Theme for this school year is:

“Every child a gift; Every teacher a blessing”.

This school year, we will focus on a particular grade level each
month to recognize the gifts and blessings in that grade. For
August, we celebrated First Grade. For September, we are celebrating
Second Grade. We are most grateful for all of our first and second
grade teachers and students.

In the Parent – Student Handbook that was emailed home the other day
in PDF version, please review all of the policies. There are some
changes from previous years.

One change is our policy on shoes. As a faculty, we realize that it
has become very difficult for families to find white or black tennis
shoes these days. Tennis shoes have multiple colors that may or may
not coincide with our school colors. Thus, we decided, that since we
promote creativity in our arts programs, we will now allow tennis
shoes of any color. As long as the shoes do not become a distraction,
we expect this policy to be manageable. We will highlight some other
changes in future weekly messages.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Yours in Christ,

Fred McKay

Principal

Spiritual Reflection

Catholic Prayer – An Act of Charity

O My God, I love Thee above all things,
With my whole heart and soul,
Because Thou art all-good and worthy of all love.
I love my neighbor as myself for the love of Thee.
I forgive all who have injured me,
And I ask pardon of all whom I have injured.

Love and forgiveness are two important virtues for
Catholics / Christians to embrace daily.

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
