We are looking forward to welcoming everyone back for the 2017-2018 school year. We are excited as we see all that the Lord has blessed us with for the upcoming year. Parent-Student Orientation has been changed to Tuesday, August 22, since so many families will be out of town to see the once-in-a lifetime total solar eclipse on the 21st. For those of you who want to view this, Georgetown is the closest area to us. Many families are traveling to Columbia and Charleston.
As a reminder, orientation is a mandatory meeting and all students must be present and in school dress.
The orientation times are:
3:30 p.m. for K-3 –K5
5:00 p.m. for 1st-6th
6:30 for 7th-12th
We will also have a meeting at 6:00 for 8th Graders and their parents about the Washington Trip before the 6:30 orientation meeting. There will also be a New Family Reception from 5:50-6:20 in the lunch room for our new families to meet CCS staff and to help answer any questions. Elementary students will then be dismissed to their classrooms to meet with the teachers and attendance will be taken. Attendance for 7th – 12th will be taken in the gym with students signing in at the front table. We will count this as the students’ first day of school, so be sure to attend. All sessions begin with a meeting in the gym. Student will sign-up for ESD (K3-6th only), chorus, electives, and private music lessons at orientation. Orientation is an opportunity for you and your student to meet the teachers and to gather important information for the school year. During this time, we cannot do individual conferences; however, if you would like an individual conference, you may sign up with the teacher for a later date.
In addition, all book fees and tuition must be paid through FACTS by orientation evening
in order for your child to begin school on August 23. If your account has not been drafted as of today, your FACTS is not set up. Please contact the school office for help.
Also, please watch your email for upcoming announcements on RenWeb lunch ordering.
SCHOOL SUPPLIES AND STUDENT HANDBOOK
If you do not have the school supply list for your child, it is available with the school calendar on the school website by clicking here!
The student handbook is also available on our website by clicking here which gives information for student conduct and dress code that will help you in preparing for school.
All parents and students need to read the handbook in order to be familiar with our school policies before school begins.
In closing, we consider it a great privilege to minister to your children. We have an exciting school year planned with a high school retreat for 9th-12th graders, field trips for elementary, and school trips for middle/high students. We also have added electives for our middle/ high group which they will sign-up for during orientation. High school boys and girls will have separate weight lifting classes, and middle school students will have a woodworking art class. We look forward to seeing you August 22!
