Only Five Weeks Left

MS and HS blogs are the same so you only need to read one if you have children at both levels.

May is here and there are only 36 calendar days until school ends, but who's counting? With the month of May comes a flurry of events and activities among the regular practices, rehearsals, games, and much more. This is a month when students often will feel stressed, fatigued, and overwhelmed. Some may struggle to keep up with academics. I encourage you to keep current with your child's grades and classes through RenWeb and Google Classroom. If you have any concerns or your child is struggling, please contact his/her teachers. We want to work with you and help you and your child in any way that we can to navigate successfully these final five weeks of school.

Below are some of the major events occurring in the upcoming days and weeks including information on final assessments:

  • The evening of May 5 is Open House.
  • May 6 is Race for Education starting at 1:00 p.m.
  • Next week, May 9, 10, and 12, is the annual student/faculty softball tournament. The high school classes play on Monday and Tuesday, and the winner of the student tournament plays the faculty on Thursday at 11:00 a.m. CCS patrons are invited to come and join the student body on Thursday as they watch the faculty defeat the students.
  • The MS/HS musical this year is You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown and will be held May 19-21. Tickets are available now.
  • Our annual Athletic Banquet is on Tuesday, May 24, at 5:45 p.m. at Shady Maple Banquet Facilities.
  • On Wednesday, May 25, HS and MS academic awards will be presented during chapel. Parents are invited to attend. Chapel is from 8:20 a.m. to 9:00 a.m.
  • On June 3, our band and IHL are traveling to Hershey Park to compete and perform at Music in the Park. Students will be gone from school all day.
  • Final assessments are May 31 - June 3.
    • Freshmen, sophomores, and juniors are expected to be in school all morning during end-of-the-year assessments.
    • Students in grades 9-11 may leave after final assessments have ended each day (Tues. - 1:15 p.m.; Wed. & Thurs. 11:20 a.m.; Friday 9:55 a.m. If a student has no final assessment 5th period on Friday, he/she does not need to attend school, and the absence will be excused.). Students who do not have a way home will stay for the day and will have a supervised study hall. A permission slip to leave early was emailed to students. See the link below for the early dismissal permission slip.
    • During assessment periods, seniors only need to be on campus when they have assessments. Seniors who are exempt from assessments or who do not have a scheduled assessment during an assessment period do not need to be on campus during that assessment. They do, however, need to sign in and out as they come and go for their assessments.
    • Seniors may be exempt from a final assessment in a class in which they have a cumulative average of 95% or higher.
