~ MONDAY MORNING WORSHIP ~
Cornerstone Christian School starts every week with Monday Morning Worship. All classes gather in the sanctuary for worship, an inspiring mini teaching, announcements and prayer. Each month the school chooses a new hymn to sing.
~ CHAPELS ~
Student led chapels are held once every month on a Friday at 11:00 am. All chapels have a prayer, scripture, chapel, music, and skit component and is a fun event. The purpose of our monthly chapel is to give our students an opportunity to share their gifts and talents in a public setting for the blessing and encouragement of their school mates and families. We seek to glorify God in all we do.
~ COW PLOP ~
The nip in the air means it is time for Cornerstone’s fall fundraiser, the Cow Plop. Squares in a local field are sold and if the cow “plops” on your square you win a cash prize! The first plop prize $200, the second plop prize $500 and the Grand Prize Plop wins you $1,000! Fall festivities at the Cow Plop include carnival games for the kids and a family hoedown to round out the evening. A sumptuous bake sale and loaded snack bar keeps everyone warm and fed while we wait for the cow to plop.
~ CHRISTMAS PROGRAM ~
Get into the Christmas spirit with Cornerstone’s all-school Christmas Program. Every year students of Cornerstone perform an inspiring program with acting, singing and dancing. This is a must see event!
~ STAR AUCTION ~
The Cornerstone Star Auction is an evening of friendly bidding wars, delicious finger foods and the chance to catch up with friends of CCS while blessing the school. Our biggest fundraiser of the year, the Star Auction has something to entice everyone. Each grade creates a unique project for the live auction that some lucky family will take home and treasure forever. Other live auction items have included weekends and weeks at private cabins in Idaho and Montana, and even as far away as Scotland. The silent auction tables brim with professional-quality handmade gifts, food and décor made by local supporters of CCS. Donations of sporting goods, original artwork, themed baskets and practical purchases, like tires and concrete work, are in abundance. There’s a friendly competitive spirit while the student marimba band counts down to the closing moments of each silent auction table. Raffles, a 50-50 drawing and a $500 grand prize mean that even if you come to give, your chances of winning are high. The generous support of Cornerstone’s friends and family make it a huge success every year. Join us the first Friday in March for a night you’ll come back to year after year.
~ ADVENTURE DAYS ~
Towards the end of the school year all grades enjoy a fun day in the sun.
Kindergarten – Third Grade: Students enjoy a morning of fun at our local parks.
Fourth Graders take a day trip up Hells Canyon on a guided jet boat tour.
Fifth Grade students travel to Boise, Idaho to visit our state’s capitol building, Idaho Supreme Court and the Old Boise State Penitentiary.
Sixth – Eighth Grade: Students head to the woods for an overnight stay at Lutherhaven where they are challenged in group activities, mid & high ropes, zip lining, archery and much more!
~ EIGHTH GRADE WASHINGTON TRIP ~
At the beginning of their year, eighth graders have a once in a lifetime opportunity to experience democracy in action. Traveling to Washington D.C. they visit the United States capitol building and see for themselves where our government meets in the Senate and the House of Representatives chambers. Every day is a new hands on experience as they explore numerous other historic sites in our nation’s capital. Not only is this informative and fun, but it is life changing.
