30-Hour Famine – April 15th – 16th
Mrs. Hawkins’s middle school students will be participating in a 30-Hour Famine at the school beginning at 3:30 p.m. Friday, April 15th and ending around 2:00 p.m. Saturday, April 16th. The focus of this year’s event is to bring awareness to the refugee plight around the world, and to show how we as Christians can bring hope to those displaced by war. As part of this event, students perform a service project with a local organization. This year students will be doing cleanup and yard work for one of the local VFW Posts.

State Forensic Festival – Saturday, April 16th
CCS has two high school students who have advanced to the state level of competition in Forensics. Esther Considine and Sam Plautz will be presenting their pieces in Madison on the morning of Saturday, April 16th. If you would like to show your support, contact Mrs. Biffert for details: rbiffert@barabooccs.com

Chess Club
The CCS Chess Club has become a favorite Monday after school activity. Several students take advantage of this opportunity to learn and hone their skills. The club is supervised by Mr. Considine, but could use some parental help as well. The club will continue to meet on Mondays from 3:00 to 4:00. However, as we enter spring planting season, Mr. Considine may not always be available to meet for club. Parents will receive an email if club will be cancelled for the week.

DQ Display Window Winners!
Congratulations to the middle school students on winning an ice cream cake from DQ Grill & Chill for their Easter window display. They received the most votes while the display was up at the local restaurant.

Yard Signs – we can use some help placing CCS yard signs around the area.
