CCS is thankful for our father-son volunteer team (Michael Shassere and his son Nicolas) who helps us to remember to honor our country, our state, and our Lord when we see our flags flying high above the CCS campus.

Michael Shassere and his son, Nicolas, began raising the American, Texas, and Christian flags at CCS each weekday morning at the beginning of last year, when Nicolas needed a service project for Cub Scouts. Mr. Shassere writes, "Nicolas enjoyed this so much that he asked Elementary Principal Mr. White if this could be 'our service to CCS.' As we all know, parents are rushed in the mornings getting children ready for school, carpooling, and off to class. With this project, Nicolas and I enjoy focused father-son time, sharing in the fact that even such a small act is an act of selflessness, and as such, honors God, our country, our state, and all the staff at CCS. This is our time to give back to CCS, and we are honored to do this each day. As written in John 3:16: 'For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.' - The ultimate act of selflessness."
Nicolas added: "I like raising the flags because it helps the school, it's good for the country, and it's respectful."
CCS is thankful for these volunteers who help us to remember to honor our country, our state, and our Lord when we see our flags flying high above the CCS campus.
