Gerdau Steel Field Trip

How do you spell field trip?
Well, Gerdau Ameristeel’s Beaumont mill definitely knows how to spell it, and how to conduct one!
On Wednesday, March 16th, they treated Mr. Langham’s Physics class to an excellent tour of their operation. Those attending were:
Gerald Langham ……….. Community Christian High School Physics teacher
Denise Block ……………..Community Christian High School Principal
Donovan Armstrong …… 12th grade student
Ethan Berwick …………… 12th grade student
Aaron Frazier ……………. 12th grade student
Josie Jay …………………… 12th grade student
Mallori Parrish …………… 12th grade student
Jenna Procella ……………. 11th grade student
Madison Trahan …………. 11th grade student
Tyler Whitten …………….. 12th grade student

gerdau 1

The Gerdau employees who acted as our main tour guides were Jeff Dyson, the rolling mill superintendent, and William Weber, the plant metallurgist.  Our students were divided into two groups and treated to an up-close and very personal look at what happens in a steel mill.
The melting process where they took scrap iron to molten metal was a dramatic and very hot sight. We were close enough to feel the heat from the 3000 degree molten steel.  We watched the pour of molten steel into the billets which were rectangular in shape and each weighed 4400 pounds. And then the billets were handled automatically thru the drawing process into small diameter wire rolls, then cooled, coiled, and stacked……..all happening automatically, and in front of the students eyes!!

gerdau 2

And, after the tour, the mill treated us to a box lunch from Jason’s Deli (yumm!!), and each student received a gift bag……it was an intense learning experience that ended in a birthday-party-style lunch.

Gerdau Ameristeel knows how to do a field trip!

Memorial Hermann Baptist Hospital in Orange Honors Community Christian Students

Memorial Hermann

Community Christian School was honored by Memorial Hermann’s Partners in Education Program this month.  Around 60 students were chosen to spend a few hours at the hospital where they did crafts and delivered them to patients and staff, learned what nurses and doctors do, and were taught about good health habits.  They were served pizza, cookies, and Capri Suns for lunch.  At the close of the tour they were each given a train whistle as a gift.

Throughout the school year representatives of the hospital and the Partners in Education Program spoke to the elementary students during their chapel.  The first week of chapel Jarren Garrett, Chief Administrative Officer, came and spoke on leadership.  Brother Kevin Trinkle, chaplain of Baptist Hospital spoke several times during elementary chapels.  The topics Brother Trinkle chose were to teach the students to have good character qualities, such as honor, thankfulness, and love.

CCS Remembering Pearl Harbor and All Who Have Made the Ultimate Sacrifice

Community Christian School students commemorated Pearl Harbor Day by viewing a special military memorabilia collection.  Tuesday, December 07, 2010 Mr. Doug Porter of the Gulf Coast Living History presented his collection of original military uniforms ranging from the WWII to current conflicts to CCS.  Each uniform was complete with helmet and gear.  Mr. Porter is a huge history buff and has collected the uniforms over 12 years and has found them at flea markets, Ebay, and through friends who helped him search for uniforms.  His father was in service during the Korean war and was stationed in Alaska.  Mr. Porter was not in the military but wanted to have a tribute to the military, as he recognizes the sacrifice of men and women in service.

CCS is grateful to Mr. Porter and people in our community who partner with them to educate and bring to attention the importance of showing respect, honoring, and recognizing that the freedoms and blessings we have are due to the men and women who are and who have laid their life on the line for their fellow Americans.

The uniforms, along with reproductions from the Revolutionary to Spanish-American wars, are on display at the Icehouse Museum in Silsbee.

CCS Honors Our Veterans

It was a sea of red, white and blue as the Community Christian School students paraded into the auditorium for their Veterans Day Program.  Opening the program was student Lindsey Burns telling of her grandfather serving in World War II, that her brother will be joining the Marines next year, and then thanking and welcoming the visiting veterans.  Chaplain Scott McIntosh, pastor of North Orange Baptist Church, opened with prayer and told the children what a chaplain is and does.  Macy LeBlanc, Nate Willett and Ethan Williams presented the flags and Dalton Teeler, Allison Le and Blaine Manucy led the audience in pledges.  It was inspirational to see all of the veterans standing and honoring our flag and country during the pledge of allegiance.  Amaris Berwick read a moving poem that she herself wrote, followed by each class singing a song chosen by them to honor our veterans.  Songs like “You’re the Grand Old Flag”, “Yankee Doodle”, and “My Country Tis of Thee” to name a few.  Closing the ceremony was Blake Johnston singing “God Bless the USA” and Principal Laurie Beard thanking our veterans for their service to our country.  After the program the veterans were treated to a reception complete with cupcakes and punch.  It was a pleasure to honor our veterans in our program on this grand Veterans Day.

CCS Lions Gearing up for Football!

There’s a new kid in town.  Community Christian School just introduced six man Football at this week’s pep rally.  Six man football is very fast paced and very high scoring. The games are extremely exciting and CCS is elated to bring football to their school.  The Cheerleaders geared things up with cheers and stunts and really got everyone’s school spirit pumping. The CCS pep rally was a good sign of things to come with junior, Jacob Trevino, surprising the students by coming out in the new, bright blue football uniform, complete with helmet, gloves, pads, and cleats. It was fantastic to see how the student body responded to the cheerleaders and their routines, stunts and cheers. New cheer coach, Mandy Flinn did a great job as well with getting the students involved. CCS looks forward to implementing six man football to their school and all the possibilities it could bring the student body. They have a lot of work to do and money to raise to do it right, but CCS is on their way.

CCS Children with a Heart for Others: Operation Change for the Children

The final count for “Operación Change for the Children” has finally arrived.  Wednesday, October 27 was the close of the Community Christian School students’ quest to collect the most change they could to offer to the Didasko Orphanage in Honduras to assist in repairing the home, purchase any essentials and to purchase the children Christmas presents.  The dedication began with a parade of students pulling wagons filled to the brink with jugs full of change.  The smiles on their faces could attest to the excitement they had to see what their giving would amount to.

On September 22, the student body, preschool through twelfth grade, was presented with a challenge: to bring in change to raise money for these children in Honduras.  The children had a pleasant surprise when on the big screens they were able to see and speak with the children and Rhonda Wilkinson (missionary and assistant director) through Skype.  The children from the home in Honduras sang to our students in Spanish.  Our children were touched and immediately began bringing in their change to aid in their new mission.

Each class was given a picture of the child that they were sponsoring and have just recently sent out letters, drawings, and pictures.  The older children sent out letters that were written in both English and Spanish.  Mrs. Monk, leader of our challenge, said “God is quickening the hearts of our children and teachers toward the children of the orphanage.  Many testimonies are pouring in of children having compassion towards these orphans that have little to nothing and of our students wanting to give all that they have.  While I was counting money a penny rolled out and when I picked it up I saw that it had a little house with a heart cut out of it”.  One kindergarten student emptied his entire piggy bank, including $20 bills, and when asked how much he would like to give, he said all of it!  His reason was because they have nothing and he has all of this stuff (toys, clothes, house).  Another student asked his mom if he could have her change, but said never mind and went to his jar of change.  He took out some of it, but then he heard in his heart God saying that he should give it all.  So, he gave his entire savings.  Yet another child gave a testimony that his giving to the Didasko children has been a blessing to himself because the kids will finally be able to receive Christmas presents and all of the things that we normally take for granted.

After five weeks of gathering all of their change to offer to the Didasko Orphanage the final total is $5,087.10!  That is $1,017.42 each week that the students raised.  We are so proud of our students and their heart and drive to give to other children in need.

CCS Students Enthusiastic for Red Ribbon Week

The students of Community Christian School really became involved in Red Ribbon week this year.  Each day had a theme that the students could get involved in and get the message.  Tuesday was “Texans Give Drugs The Boot” where the students could dress up in cowboy attire, Wednesday was “Red Day” where the students decked out all in red, Thursday was “Sock It To Drugs Day” where students wore their craziest socks and the hallways had socks strung up on clothes lines, and Friday was “Shine ‘The Light’ on a Drug Free World” where students wore neon and white clothes that glowed in the dark with the use of the black lights set up all around campus.  In class students and teachers discussed the importance of a drug free world and how it related to their own lives.

CCS Lady Lions Honored by Renowned WOS Coach Dan Hooks

Thursday, October 28, the Community Christian Area champs, Lady Lions, had the honor to hear a motivational speech given by Coach Dan Hooks exclusively for them.  In anticipation to the Regional Champions game in Houston against Bellville Faith Academy, CCS Coach Dan Brack made a call to Coach Dan Hooks and set up the surprise for the girls.  Middle blocker, Madelyn Tran-Reno said, “I was impressed with all the former athletes who have gone on to the NFL after graduating (from WOS).  Also, I have family, friends, and a cousin who have pictures on the wall in a permanent place.  Oh, and Coach Hooks said he is keeping track of our team!”

Outside hitter, Lauren Jackson, “Overall it was a special privilege to have the experience to go into the WOS locker room to see the memories of retired players.  It was an honor to have Coach Hook tell us that it doesn’t matter if you attend a small school; if you made it past Area, you have accomplished something and no one can take it away.”

Operación Change for the Children‏

Community Christian School in Orange invites you to our “Operación Change for the Children” dedication for the Didasko Children’s Home in Honduras, an orphanage for abused, abandoned, and/or neglected children, on October 27 at 1:25 pm.  We are so very proud of our students whose hearts and hands are reaching out to the children of the Didasko Children’s Home.

On September 22, the student body, preschool through twelfth grade, was presented with a challenge: to bring in change to raise money for these children in Honduras.  The children had a pleasant surprise when on the big screens they were able to see and speak with the children and Rhonda Wilkinson (missionary and assistant director) through Skype.  The children from the home in Honduras sang to our students in Spanish.  Our children were touched and immediately began bringing in their change to aid in their new mission.

Each class was given a picture of the child that they were sponsoring and have just recently sent out letters, drawings, and pictures.  The older children sent out letters that were written in both English and Spanish.  Mrs. Monk, leader of our challenge, said “God is quickening the hearts of our children and teachers toward the children of the orphanage.  Many testimonies are pouring in of children having compassion towards these orphans that have little to nothing and of our students wanting to give all that they have”.  One kindergarten student emptied his entire piggy bank, including $20 bills, and when asked how much he would like to give, he said all of it!  His reason was because they have nothing and he has all of this stuff (toys, clothes, house).  Another student gave his entire savings because he felt in his heart that God was leading him to give all that he had.

So far, $2,700 in change has been raised from the childrens’ piggy banks, change jars, parent’s pockets, couches, grandparents, anywhere they could get change, and the change keeps pouring in.  Please consider publicizing this special project, for we are so very proud of our students and hope to make our community aware of our mission for the Didasko Children’s Home.

Kindergarteners Become Firemen for a Day During Fire Prevention Week at CCS

The Community Christian School Kindergarten class learned all about fire safety during Fire Prevention Week.  Among fire safety they learned about what our community helpers do around our community to keep us safe.  Throughout the week they had paramedic Mr. Land with the Acadian Ambulance, Officer Hogan, and firemen Brandon Godina, John Bilbo and Travis with the City of Orange Fire Department visit and tell the children who they are and what they do.  The men showed the class the tools they use and what they are for, as well as, let them walk through their vehicles, blow the horns, run the sirens, and even speak on the police car’s loud speakers. Officer Hogan taught the children about gun safety, as well. The children were allowed to sit on a stretcher and even hold the fire hose and spray water on an imaginary fire.  The men taught them to call 911 when there is an emergency and to not be afraid of them when they arrive to help.   The children were in awe of the vehicles and the men who are our every day heroes and were overjoyed to wear the badges the men handed out for them to wear.
