....... CCDS INFORMER
Mrs. Roberts - Headmistress

Dear CCDS Families,

Week one fulfilled our expectations for an exciting,
enjoyable week for all of us – teachers, students and staff.
I hope you felt that positive sense of expectation for a great
year from your child.

To further understand the expectations for this year and to
help your child in meeting them, there is no other more
important meeting for you to attend this year than Back to
School Night, tomorrow evening. This is a parent only event
where the teachers will explain the organization of the
classroom routines and their expectations of the students. Practical information on
how to support your child will be shared, as well as, how you might assist with grade
level enrichment programs, such as field trips, room parent, art parent and other
programs. Each teacher will spend close to an hour presenting the information and
answering questions. The evening will be divided into three sessions. Half of the
grade levels will meet during the first session. Then there is an all school 30 minute
session for everyone to explain the overall school organization and tasks ahead of
us for the year. After that, second group of grade levels will meet with their teachers.
The grades and their session times are listed on this page.

On Wednesday morning at 8:00 in Hinde Hall, the CCDS parent room representatives
will meet for the first time. However, every parent is welcome and encouraged to
attend these meetings held on the 1st Wednesday of each month.

Thank you for your cooperation with the Drop-Off and Pick-Up policies. Please work
on keeping the space clear between the two school gates. Visit on either side, but
help up move kids safely out of the gates and across the street by not obstructing
the view of moving cars.

This is the first week of for Hot Lunch on Friday if you choose to purchase this
option for your child.

Looking forward to seeing you tomorrow night!!!

Nancy

quality Christmas or other wrapping paper, you order would be greatly appreciated.

BACKPACK TOO HEAVY?

USED SCIENCE and SOCIAL STUDIES TEXTBOOKS for 4th, 5th and 6th grades
are available for sale in the school office. These were purchased by other students
last year are will be resold at discounted prices. They may be resold by you
next fall again.

TIPS FOR STARTING THE YEAR OFF RIGHT
ARRIVAL TIME:
 - Students should arrive no earlier than 7:45 and no later than 7:55.
Please remember that your child’s teacher is starting the day for all 16 children.
So drop off your child and do not linger to talk to the teacher.
Classes begin at 7:55 sharp.

DISMISSAL TIME:
 -Students are dismissed at 2:55 and should be picked up no later than 3:05. 
If you need to meet with your child’s teacher, please schedule a conference
at 3:05 ahead of time.
-Pick-up time on Wednesdays is at 2:00. Please be on time so that the teachers
may start their staff development meetings immediately after dismissal.

In the interest of fairness to those enrolled in After School Care, all children not
enrolled in one of the After School Care Programs
will be sent to After School
Care and charged $10 for every 15 minutes parents are late. Parents are
considered late if their child is not picked up by 10 minutes after dismissal time.


PICK-UP AND DROP OFF PROCEDURES
These are always a busy time, but by following the rules, you can help us keep all
of our students safe and the procedures as efficient as possible. Thank you in
advance for your attention to the following rules.
PLEASE DO NOT GET OUT OF YOUR CAR IF YOU USE THE LOADING ZONE IN FRONT OF THE SCHOOL, EVEN FOR JUST A MOMENT. 
 -If you are in the loading zone, your child will be brought to your car in the
afternoon and a 6th grade ambassador will help your child/children get out of
the car in the mornings.
- The parking lot across the street is open if you want to help your child in and out of
your car in the morning. Please pass these instructions on to anyone dropping off or
picking up your child.
- The PE lot will be open for overflow parking in the afternoons from 2:55 to 3:05
or 2:00 – 2:05.
- Please join the end of the line for the loading zone. Sometimes it wraps around the
corner, but we will move it forward as quickly as possible. Remember no cutting.
-Double parking is not allowed and children will not be released to cars that are
double-parked.
- Children riding bikes will be dismissed from the gate closest to the church.

CROSS WALKS
-If you are picking up your child and walking or taking them to your car in the
parking lot, keep a clear view of the cross walks for approaching cars by waiting to
the 10th Street side of the gate
-Junior Kindergarteners and Kindergarteners will be excused from the gate
closestto the first grade classroom. Please wait on the 10th Street side of this
gate, unlessyou are driving through. This will assist us in seeing which drivers
are coming up in the loading zone so that we can keep this line moving.


LUNCHES
- The students should bring their lunches to school in the mornings.
If it is necessary for you to deliver a lunch later in the day, please take it to the office.
It will be delivered to your child’s classroom.

SIGNING OUT CHILDREN DURING THE DAY
- If you need to pick up your child during the day, send a note to the teacher in the
morning. Then they can have you’re your child ready to go with homework etc,
ahead of time.
-When you pick up your child, go to the school office and sign out the student before
you pick her/him up from the classroom.

SCHOOL TIME MEDICATIONS
Please remember it is imperative that all medication your child must take during
the school day be sent to the school office in its original packaging, labeled with
instructions. Children should not be told to take oral medication at school
by themselves.

WHEN IN DOUBT ABOUT SOMETHING, CHECK YOUR PARENT HANDBOOK
OR CALL THE OFFICE.

.......... 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.
