It will help them when we take our States and Capital’s test later on this spring.

**It is time to start thinking about getting your money in for the Boise Trip, thank you to those who already have sent their money in. The dates for the trip are April 29-May 1. The cost per student is, $175.00. Send in your money any time between now and Feb 29th. Make your check payable to CCS and mark it ‘Boise Trip’.
**Our Valentine’s Day Party will be here before we know it and I thought that perhaps I would give you a heads up as to what the plan is. Since the 14th is a Chapel day and those days are already crazy enough without adding in a party, we will be celebrating on Thursday, Feb. 13th 12:30-2:00. I think having an Ice Cream Sundae Bar would be fun and so the list of items needed are as follows:
½ Gallon Vanilla Ice Cream
½ Gallon Chocolate Ice Cream
Peanut Butter Cups
Whipped Topping (1 can)
