Smiling faces, excited teachers and students, and greeting
new and returning families last week were all wonderful
outward signs of the positive energy felt on campus as
school began. Each fall awakening to the possibilities a new
school year offers brings its own special sense of joy to all of us.
The big news for this week is Back to School Night
this Thursday. I cannot emphasize enough how important
this evening is for your family. It is an adult only event where
teachers share their programs and expectations for the year
with you. Armed with this knowledge, you will be able to support your child’s progress
throughout the year. I sent the scheduled times for each class out on Friday, but they
are listed again in this Informer.
The first CCDS Parent Association’s room rep meeting will take place in Hinde Hall
on Wednesday morning the 8th of September at 8:00. I encourage you to attend –
the more the merrier. We will be planning the events for the school year and assigning
which grade levels are responsible for each event. I hope you can join us. Even if you
can’t be a full time room representative, you will be in the know about the major school
events this year.
Thank you for continuing to following the drop of and pick up procedures..
It truly helps to keep our children safe.

STARTING THE YEAR OFF RIGHT TIPS
- 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.
-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 2:30. 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

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.
