Drama, Retreat, Trip, Conferences, Thanksgiving, Hunting

After all the preparation, energy, frenzied and productive activity for last week’s auction, students and teachers returned to a normal school week without missing a beat. It’s hard to believe that we are almost through the month of October.  Before we blink, parent conferences and Thanksgiving will be upon us. But before the holiday arrives, there is much happening at CCS.

Starting November 1, students are no longer to wear shorts to school unless the forecast for Morgantown, PA, is 60 degrees Fahrenheit or above.

On November 5 & 6, middle and high school students will perform an adaptation of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol for our fall drama at 7:00 p.m. each night.  Cost is $6.00 for adults and $4.00 for students.

On November 9-11, our eleventh and twelfth grade students will be leaving campus and traveling to Refreshing Mountain Camp in Stevens, PA, for our annual Spiritual Life Retreat. Mr.Thomm Starr, director of the counseling department at Lancaster Bible College, will be sharing with our students from the Scriptures in exploring with them spiritual gifts as well as doing some career education. The students will leave after school on Monday and return on Wednesday in time for the buses.

On Wednesday, November 11, the ninth and tenth grade classes will be traveling to The Hagley Museum in Wilmington, Delaware, to take a 2.5 hour tour of the old Dupont Gunpowder Works, exploring industrialization in America.  A permission slip and more information will be shared with students in the near future.

Students will be off school November 12 and 13 while teachers will be engaged in professional development to serve your children more effectively in fulfilling Conestoga Christian’s vision and mission.

Early in November, CCS will be contacting patrons about scheduling parent conferences for November 23 and 24. Look for more information in future issues of the Cougar Update.

Please note that our Thanksgiving break is from Tuesday, November 24, until Monday, November 30 (the first day of hunting season). Students return to school on Tuesday, December 1.

Finally, yesterday I reminded high school students about our cell phone policy. Students may use cell phones before school, at lunch time, and after school. Once homeroom has started, they may only use their cell phones with permission from a teacher or staff member with the exception being lunch time.
