Open House and Game Night – Friday, January 22 – 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.
CCS has invited the public to visit our school to learn about the opportunities we offer through classical Christian education. We invite CCS parents to stop out at the same time for a bit of fellowship, games, and snacks. This is a great way to promote our school, get to know one another better, and to show our community what a fun time we have here at CCS. This event is FREE, but ice cream concessions will be available to purchase. Grab your favorite board game and come out for a fun evening. Don’t have any board games? Not a problem. We will have plenty on hand to share with you.

Forensics Contests
Mrs. Biffert is coaching several of our middle and high school students in Forensics; the goal of Forensics is to enhance communication skills through participation in Theatre, Debate and Speech activities. The first contest for middle school students is Tuesday, January 19th, and will be held after school in Beaver Dam. Spectators are welcome. Permission slips for participating students are in today’s take home folder.
