FROM MRS. ROBERTS

CCDS has some exciting additions to the website.
The first set of pictures will cover the field trip to the
USS Bonhomme Richard. You will enjoy viewing
these pictures by going to the home page and clicking
on the dolphin button labeled Readers Field Trip.
Thank you, Mr. Weimann!

Please send any pictures of school events to
Mr. Weimann at HYPERLINK "mailto:
ymandesign@earthlink.net"
We would like to build up our archive of school pictures for the website.

With the new capabilities available today on cell phones and other such
devices, keeping kids safe has taken on a whole new meaning.
Simply having filters on home computers and being vigilant about computer
use in the home is not enough. So to find out what you really need to know
to stay current on this important subject, save April 30th on your calendars.
Coronado Middle School is bringing a guest speaker to town to discuss
this topic. More details will follow in the coming weeks. I encourage you to
set April 30th aside and plan to attend this important meeting!

While we don’t have school parties on March 17th, “A Wearin’ of the Green”
is appropriate on Tuesday for St. Patrick’s Day. Please check your child’s
teacher notes for further details.

......... CELL PHONE POLICY

A new problem has come to my attention, which is an out growth of our changing
times.  The 2009-2010 Parent/Student Handbook will address this problem, but in
the meantime I need your support.  Many children are bringing cell phones to
school.  These may be necessary if children are walking home, but they are not to
be used at school and the school cannot accept any responsibility for damage or
loss of these phones.  As always, any calls that a child needs to make during the
school day should be placed through the office phone with their teacher’s
permission.  This has always been the rule, but we are finding that some students
are texting during school and going into the restrooms to text or make phone calls. 
Along that line of thought, arranging play dates etc. should be done before a child
comes to school not when school is dismissing.  (The loading zone has enough
problems without waiting for students to call their parents to arrange a play dates
at the last minute.   So bottom line, while on the school grounds, cell phones
should be in the students’ backpacks at all times.  I will be talking to the children
about this, and I would appreciate your support from home. 

As always - thank you for your support. Mrs. Roberts

.......... CCDS Mission Statement

The Educational Mission of
Christ Episcopal Church is
predicated on Anglican
Theologians of The 17th
Century who suggested that
human reason offers a tool to
interpret scriptures and to
wrestle with the most difficult
issues of humanity. It is our
desire to establish a learning
environment that fosters the
development of reason and
critical thinking skills to serve
in the exploration of the deepest
issues of humanity and to better
understand our responsibilities
as individuals for the well-being
of society. It is an environment
founded on the love of God and
the love of our fellow human beings.
