Halfway! We have completed 18 weeks, with 18 left to finish. This timeline puts the seniors about five months away from the goal that was set back in kindergarten--a high school diploma! While I am excited for them to shake my hand and receive that document, I am sad to think that they are going to be gone from the halls of CCS. We have a wonderful group of young adults in our senior class. In just the 18 months that I have known them, I have grown to love them. The world is going to be a better place when they are out there working, raising families, and impacting their communities. 

Our Italian ice has been quite a hit with our students and teachers. We are grateful to Billy Coston for all he has done in supporting our school with his time and his contributions. The Italian ice is on hiatus for the time being because Billy has been dealing with some physical challenges. We pray that God will bless Billy in the new year with good health. We look forward to seeing him and his team back in a few weeks so that we can all enjoy the treats--of Ice, of fellowship, and of the relationship we have built with the Costons.

Gratitude is our character trait for January. It seems appropriate to begin the year with thankful hearts. May our praises for God and all He has done, is doing, and will do for us be heard by people who are seeking answers to the questions only Christ can provide.

A new year always ushers in change. It is as inevitable as the rising of the sun. When the Chargers return in January, changes will be coming. We are going to observe a month of gratitude for our character education. Gratitude seems appropriate after the blessings of Christmas--the Christ child, family, gifts. Other changes are in the works, but those will be made public when they are finally in place. I ask that all of our Charger family--current families, alumni and their families, faculty and staff--all pray that God will continue...

We are currently asking our CCS family to start filling their shoeboxes for the Operation Christmas Child ministry. We will collect shoeboxes on November 15. Everyone can find inspiration for what to include in the shoeboxes at (Click image on this page to access this blog post alone, then click on the image there to access the website).

We will also be collecting toys for the Shelby Baptist Christmas Gift Shop, as we do every year. Those toys will also be collected at the November 15 chapel.

CCS students are quietly making a difference in many ways--backpack buddies, shoebox ministry, toy drive, and others. On October 31, the Beta Club members went to the Linda Nolen Learning Center to help with their fall festival. Our students always look forward to helping at this event. Sometimes I think our students get more out of it than the LNC students and staff.
