End of the Year Activities

End of the Year Activities

Dear CCS families ~

I pray you are all doing well as we are moving rapidly toward the end of our school year. It is definitely not what we planned when school started in the fall, but God has been faithful as we have navigated through these last few months since our school building closure in March.

I want to give you a snapshot of what our end-of-the-year activities will look like at this point in time.

May 29 – 7th-12th grade students will receive their end of the year recognition if they have earned a gold key and/or highest academic achievement awards. Our 8th graders will receive their promotion certificates as well. Our seniors will be honored as they accept their graduation stoles, National Honor Society and honor cords, presidential recognition, OSAA athletic scholar certificates and scholarship awards. Our valedictorian and salutatorian will receive their medals.

In order to honor our students while following the gathering ban (with a limit of 25) and social distancing regulations, the following schedule has been determined:

     12:00-12:45 – 8th grade     1:00-1:45 – 7th & 9th grades     2:00-2:30 – 10th grade     2:30-3:00 – 11th grade     3:00 – Seniors

The protocol will be as follows: Families will drive onto the school campus during their student(s) designated time slot and park. If you have multiple children, you may choose the time slot that works the best with your schedule. Your student(s) will be directed where to stand at the front of the building (6′ apart) to receive their awards. When it is your student(s) turn to receive their award, you may get out of your car so that you can hear the announcement and take pictures. You and your student(s) will then return to your car and exit the campus. All 8th graders and 12th graders will need to be in attendance as they will be receiving promotion and graduation recognition. Seniors are to wear their caps, gowns and tassels. If your student(s) are in grades 7th, 9th, 10th or 11th and have earned an academic award(s), you will be contacted by CCS.

The senior trip will take place on May 25-28 at a local destination. Our high school graduation ceremony has been rescheduled to July 25. Tickets will be required for attendance. The senior breakfast will take place on May 29. Time and place TBD.

June 4 – Elementary – Kindergarten-6th grade students will have their final pick up and drop off day from 3:30-5:00pm. Families will drive through and pick up the remaining items that belong to your student(s) from their classrooms. Teachers will also have your student(s) character trait certificate to give to you. All of these items will be ready for you as you drive through. You will also be dropping off any remaining assignments that your student(s) have completed as well as checking in textbooks, library books, and CCS Chromebooks/charging cords. Please note that Elementary character trait recognition will be recorded by each teacher so that parents can view this special moment when your student(s) teacher speaks words of life over each of your student(s) recognizing a character trait they have observed in them throughout the year.

June 5 – 7th-12th grade students will have their final drop off day from 1:00-5:00pm. Students will enter the school building (with physical spacing that complies with social distancing rules) and check in any CCS Chromebooks/charging cords, return their textbooks to their teachers in their classrooms, and clean out their lockers. Lost and found items will be displayed during this time.

All early childhood education (preschool and prekindergarten) and summer camp information updates will be communicated to you by Mrs. Fisher or the front office.

May evidence of God’s faithfulness be showered upon you.

With His great love and peace ~ Mrs. Phillips
