Middle School Field Trip – Tuesday, September 15
Students in middle school will be attending the “Career Fair at the Fair” sponsored by the Baraboo Agricultural Education Advisory Council. This is a wonderful time to be praying for our students as they begin to think about career options for their future beyond CCS.

Parent Committee Meeting – Monday, September 21, 6:30 p.m.
The Parent Committee meets next week Monday and every third Monday of the month. Your involvement in our school is a fundamental key to our success. Attending Parent Committee meetings is highly encouraged for all parents/guardians. These meetings provide an opportunity for your voice to be heard, and your ideas to be shared.

Volunteers Needed!
We are looking for more volunteers to help at lunchtime. Ideally we would like to have a volunteer in the lunchroom during the entire lunch period, as well as two playground volunteers during recess. If you are willing to help on a regular basis, or even once in awhile, please contact the school office.

Craft Fair – Saturday, November 7, 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

    part of our craft fair. Applications are available from the school office.
