Rehearsal: A special rehearsal will be held at the church during school hours on Thursday, December 22nd. The students have put a lot of effort into their pieces and are ready to showcase their talents. Be sure to invite your family and friends to this special performance.

Christmas Program dress code: 4K – red or green tops and khaki bottoms; K-12: red or green logo tops and khaki bottoms.

School Closings and Delays for Severe Weather
If the school needs to close or delay opening for inclement weather, families will be notified by email. You may also check the school’s Facebook page and website where we will post the same information. Additionally, we will be listed on Channel3000, WKOW27, and NBC15. Any decisions will be made by 6:30am; if there is no announcement by 6:30 am, school will be open as usual. While CCS generally follows the Baraboo School District regarding cancellations/delays, be aware that CCS does not always follow their decisions. Further details are in the Student/Parent Handbook, p.25.

Cooler Weather – Snow Gear Requirements
Refer to page 14 of the student handbook regarding outdoor clothing guidelines. If there is snow on the grass, students must have a jacket, hat, gloves, snow pants, and boots in order to play in the snow. Without snow pants or boots they may play on the blacktop. Please be sure to send these items with your student, and consider sending an extra set to be kept at school.

Lunch Help Needed!
Volunteers are need to help with the lunchroom and lunch recess. Extra eyes/hands are always helpful, but we definitely need more help on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. If you are available to help, please contact the school office.
