CSS Jog-a-thon is TOMORROW!

Tomorrow (Thursday, 11/10) is our Jog-a-thon. We are so proud that we have made our school goal! Thank you so much for all your support and efforts to raise funds for our school. Please keep the donations coming in. We will gladly accept donations and corporate fund matching anytime. ALL of these funds will be used to support fun activities and classroom supplies/technology for ALL of our students. Thank you!

Some quick reminders about tomorrow:
• Please come cheer your student on during the Jog-a-thon! We need parents on the course to mark the bibs, mist the runners and run our bubble blasters!!
• Please volunteer before or after your student runs, in the classroom or on the track. Please sign up at: or contact
• It’s going to be hot!
o Please make sure your student has a water bottle for tomorrow with his/her name clearly labeled on it.
o Please wear light clothes (shorts and light shirts)
o And don’t forget the sunscreen.
o Please know that students will not be running the entire time of the Jog-a-thon. If it is hot during your student’s run time, then we will have walking laps and skipping laps and bunny hop laps and other ways to keep moving without getting over heated.
• Please have your student wear comfy shoes, as they will be moving.
The flow of the event is that students will get their bibs put on in the classroom, then go out to warm up with Coach Murray (our PE teacher), then they will run. After the run, we have a cool down area where students will have access to fresh fruit, pretzels, Pirate Booty and water. If your student has allergies, please make sure that they bring it to the attention of our volunteers, so we can help with checking the ingredients for them. Run/Walking times: 5th Grade - 8:45am; 4th Grade- 9:15am; 1st Grade - 9:45am; – TK/Kinder - 10:20am; 2nd Grade - 10:45am; 3rd Grade - 11:15am
If you have any questions, please email us at
Again, thank you for your support – we could not do this without you!

Shoe Drive for Africa - through November 4th

Keep the kindness going - please donate gently used shoes for people in Africa. Our sister school, RSS, is holding a shoe drive and we are jumping in to support their efforts. Please bring any style of shoe to school and drop into one of the boxes on the quad or in the cafeteria by November 4th. Shoes must be tied, taped or bagged together. RSS will be sending them to a community in Africa for their families. Thank you Kind Cougars!

CSS Halloween Parade is this Friday, 10/28

Our annual Halloween Parade is this Friday, October 28th at 8:30 am. Please see below for guidelines:

• Location: Our parade will take place on the 4/5 playground and we ask parents who would like to watch to stand around the edges of the field.
• Costumes: Students are asked to wear their costumes to school. 1st -5th graders will change out of costumes after the parade, so please send a change of clothing if your child does not wear school clothes under his/her costume. Costumes must be school appropriate: safe, non-offensive, and not too frightening. If you have any doubt about the appropriateness of your child’s costume, you should probably save it for trick-or-treating on Monday night. ALL COSTUMES AND PROPS MUST BE PUT AWAY AFTER THE PARADE.
• Props: Last year, several students wrote persuasive letters to the school administration requesting that props be allowed at the parade. To validate their writing work and respond to their well-articulated request, we will allow non-violent props for the parade only. However, no toy guns, knives or weapons will be allowed.
• Masks: No masks that cover the face are permitted. Eye covers (Ninja Turtles, etc.) are allowed.

Thank you so much for your support!
