Welcome back to School!

Dear Friends and Family,

School starts on September 2nd at 8:30.
(Our School day starts at 8:30. Recommended time of arrival is 8:20.)

Thank you for keeping CCSI in your prayers. The staff and teachers are preparing for the new semester in September. Please mark your calendars with the following events.

We are excited about parent involvement in the school’s morning devotional time. Devotionals can be giving in either English or Japanese. Please follow the schedule listed below for the coming semester. If you find yourself unable to lead on your scheduled day, please make arrangements with another family to find a replacement.

Community Meeting: Our next Community Meeting will be on Saturday, September 6th. Mr. Stewart will be sharing his continuing vision for CCSI. It will be the first community meeting since the school board appointed him administrator over both language tracks. All families are strongly encouraged to attend. (10-12).

Date Correction: American Thanksgiving will be observed on November 27, 2008. The school calendar erroneously listed the date as November 20, 2008. We apologize for the mistake.

New Teachers: Please extend a warm welcome to our new teachers. Kevin Dingle, Andrew Lyell, Samantha Cherry, and Mizuho Yonemoto will be joining our staff this year. Please pray for a smooth transition.

New Students: Ryoji Fujieda, Ethan Virtudazo, Meg Dingle and Samuel Ham have been accepted to CCSI’s English track. Please welcome them to the CCSI community!

E-Zone: Our first E-Zone is on Sept. 19. Please note that grades 1-3
do not have E-Zone on Sept. 5 or 12.

Parent Partner: Please sign up to be a parent partner. (Parents are asked to reserve one day per month for being a parent partner. This requirement can be fulfilled by either parent or can be divided into partial days several times a month.)

Grading Periods: Both language tracks will be dividing the school year into four, nine week grading periods. Report cards will be sent home on the Thursday following the end of each grading period. (Please note dates on the school calendar.)
