Principal’s Message

Dear CCS Families and Friends,

We will open up the Parent Web as part of the RenWeb school
management system this weekend. We are going to start with Grades 3-8
now, then add Gr. 1-2 in a few weeks, and finally K4 & K5 before the
end of the quarter. We will email instructions to families on how to
set up your login and password so that you will have access to your
family information and to your own children’s student information.
You will get this email today (Friday). For families with students
in grades 3-8, please set up your account over the weekend. If you
have any difficulty, email the school office on Monday and we will
help you.

Under the Student Information, you will be able to see information on
your child’s attendance, behavior and grades. The student “home
page” is a summary, and then you can click on the details on any of
these categories. For the student’s Gradebook Progress Report, you
will see a “numerical average” on the summary page and then you can
click on the “numerical average” and you will see the details of all
graded assignments, quizzes, tests, etc. For the special area
classes, grades will appear for these classes at the end of the
quarter (art, band, chorus, computer, drama, physical education,

Under the Family Information, please check all of the data for
accuracy. Let the office know if any changes need to be made,
especially email addresses and phone numbers, so that we can update
your family information in our emergency alert system. You will also
be able to see billing information for After Care fees.

We expect the RenWeb school management system will enhance the
communication between home and school.

Yours in Christ,

Fred McKay

Spiritual Reflection

A Prayer for World Peace

Lord, we pray for the power to be gentle;

the strength to be forgiving;

the patience to be understanding;

and the endurance to accept the consequences of

holding to what we believe to be right.

May we put our trust in the power of good

to overcome evil and the power of love to overcome


We pray for the vision to see and the

faith to believe in a world emancipated

from violence, a new world where fear shall

no longer lead men to commit injustice,

nor selfishness make them bring suffering to others.

Help us to devote our whole life and thought

and energy to the task of making peace,

praying always for the inspiration and

the power to fulfill the destiny for which we and

all men were created.

New Sails on the Playground!

Thank you Mr. Eddie Keating for your hard work and getting the final
sail installed on the playground! We appreciate everyone’s hard work,
contributions and dedication to the playground fund!
