Grandparents & Special Friends Day
On Friday, February 21, 2020, CCS celebrated Grandparents and Special Friends Day. This is always an exciting day for our elementary students. Over 600 grandparents and special friends were welcomed with coffee and breakfast and a special message of encouragement from Executive Director, Dr. Jeff Potts.
Students then hosted their grandparents and special friends in the classrooms where they were able to participate in grade-level activities together and show them work samples. Each student made a special picture frame as a thank you gift for their grandparent or special friend for coming.
After showing off their work, students walked their guests to the East Gym for a chapel service where they led the pledges, recited scripture and performed songs with singing, puppets and instruments to celebrate God's gift of grandparents and special friends. In addition, CCS senior, Gabby Kostecki, presented a moving testimony about her experience at CCS. The morning concluded with professional photos and refreshments. The students were so excited to have a half day off of school to spend with their beloved guests.
Thank you to everyone who joined our elementary students for a very fun and memorable morning.
