CCS Serving the Community

As part of their training for Student Leadership Institute, students and faculty of Community Christian School alongside sponsors from the community, selected families in need and repaired homes damaged by Hurricane Ike. During the week-long SLi minimester, student teams reached out to the Small family of Bridge City where they hung sheetrock, painted, and sanded; painting for the Anders family of Bridge City; demolition at the home of Sylvia Beam in Bridge City; texture walls and paint for the Chargois family in Orange; at Mrs. Elnora Franks’ home in Orange, they painted and cleaned hurricane debris, at the Klein home of Bridge City, the teams cleared out hurricane debris; and the senior class chose one home to completely restore from start to finish, the Richardsons of Bridge City. It is a joy and a privilege to help those in the community who have suffered great loss. Thanks from Community Christian School to all of those who donated of their time and supplies and thanks to Judy Klein, the SLi director who arranged everything.

Pick up a Book, Open a Door

To entice students to read during Young Readers’ Week, the elementary teachers of Community Christian School created “The Reading Pad,” complete with jungle theme and interspersed bean bag chairs, backrests, and cushions for the most comfortable read ever. The Challenge: read the most number of pages so your class will win the coveted popcorn/coke/movie party. Mrs. Stafford’s fifth grade class were the winners after reading 6, 725 pages collectively. Students used “The Pad” to read before school, and teachers used it for celebrity readers. Amy Welch, one such celebrity better known as Druscilla, the wicked step-sister of Cinderella, said, “I believe reading is the most valuable gift we can give students. It opens the door to many interesting places. Reading should be fun and exciting for students of all ages. The most valuable book to teach our kids to read is the Bible because it has the answer to everything life gives us.” Third through sixth grade students participated in a book swap on Wednesday and set up the reading pad as a literary museum with 3-D representations of readers’ favorite scenes from various books. For the book swap, students brought books from home to trade with other students, reinforcing the principle of sharing and giving students the opportunity to read something new. The grand culmination of Young Readers’ Week and a huge favorite with students and teachers alike was Dress Up as a Story Book Character Day. Students brought in their books and dressed as their favorite characters. To name a few: Amelia Bedelia, Junie B. Jones, Tom Sawyer, Thing 1 from the Dr. Seuss books, Goldie Locks and the Three Bears, Charlotte the spider from Charlotte’s Web, Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz, and the amazing duo, elementary Principal Beard as Officer Buckle and her daughter, Erin, as the officer’s dog, Gloria. These students really love to read.

JV Volleyball Finishes The Season Strong

The Junior Varsity Volleyball team of Community Christian School finished a demanding season by crushing all opponents in their path. The girls fought hard and remained undefeated, going 8-0, including their pre-season games. Freshman Ashlyn Akhtar said, “Our season was amazing, not just because we went undefeated, but because we had an amazing coach, Jami Foster.”

2008 XC State Championships

Cross Country is a sport which requires a lot of hard work, determination, and WATER. This year’s CCS high school team is the largest ever. Coach Amanda Britnell says, “It’s exciting to have runners on the team that have a passion for running.” This year’s season was cut short due to hurricanes, and the team was only able to compete in three meets. The most fun, State Cross Country in Waco, Texas, is almost the most difficult according to Sarah Moseley, “The constant rise and fall of hills made the course difficult for us because we are so used to flat ground. But if cross-country was easy, it would be football.”

At State, the runners did well. Angela Royer got 2nd place, Brandon Burns 7th, Sarah Moseley received 18th, Daniel Battise 20th, and Ethan Berwick got 30th.

Political Parties Show Their Colors at Community Christian School

Check out the photos below.

< PREV | NEXT>

The lines were drawn between McCain/Palin and Obama/Biden as Matt Block’s Government students formed their own political parties at Community Christian School. The democratic and republican parties are represented by Campaign Managers who organized the focus and theme of the campaigns and set up a schedule for debates, town hall meetings, speeches, and speaking engagements throughout the school. Each party also chose several Spokespersons to present their case before the student body at all political events. These students learned their candidate’s position well enough to defend and explain those positions and even attack perceived weaknesses in the opposing party’s campaign.

The student body was asked to submit questions to each party’s Research Department who dug up all the dirt. The Campaign Managers are now well-versed in their party’s stand on the issues and will give speeches and answer questions in the public debates. But they haven’t stopped there. Each party’s Advertising Department filmed two commercials and designed numerous posters for each candidate which will be aired before the Town Hall Meeting.

Not to be left out, the 3rd through 6th grade Elementary Enrichment Class has filmed commercials of their own and made presentations to first and second grade. Projects in the classrooms are designed to capture students’ interest in the political process and make it user-friendly. Perhaps the highlight for K5 through 6thgrade is the Grand Parade where they carried signs and displayed their mini-floats for the junior high and high school.

The issues chosen by the parties were near and dear to students: abortion, the economy, education, the environment, gas prices, same sex marriage, gun control, health care, homeland security, immigration, Supreme Court appointments, torture in suspected terrorist interrogations, and war in the Middle East.

The final stage included registration of the “voters.” During History class, the students received personal voter’s cards designed by Lisa Berwick’s Art Class. The Art students also created a polling booth with amazing accuracy to give student voters the actual feel of casting their ballot. On November 4th, government students will man the booth when Community Christian School follows the nation on Election Day and students show up at the “polls” to cast their vote for the candidates of their choice. These students are ready to run our country’s political machine.

Community Christian School Students Raise School Supplies for Children in Iraq


Pictured are students Ashlyn Akhtar, Maria Pulido and Lillian Johnson with a representative of the Stark Foundation.
—–

Students at Community Christian School raised 527 different school supplies in response to a request from Walter Riedell of the Stark Foundation. His son, now stationed in Iraq, explained in one of his calls that Iraqi children seldom ask for candy or gum. Their interest is focused on the pens and pencils the Marines have in their protective vests and helmets. He said the simple assortment of crayons created excitement and joy in the lives of the children.
