Easter Fund Drive

Easter Fund Drive 2023

We hope you were blessed during the Easter season and continue to ponder the great gift of salvation through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ, God’s only Son. Our Easter Fund Drive is in full swing and I wanted to send thanks to those who have already donated. We appreciate your support. If you have yet to send your donation, please consider this as a gentle reminder. This year’s goal is $20,000 and we hope you will be generous in your giving.

CCS Conversation Series

If you watched the February edition of the CCS Conversation series, you would have heard from Sebastian and Jesse Mencia, a current family at Cambridge Christian School. The Mencia family originally came from Argentina/Columbia and started their first 45 days in Canada in a homeless shelter. Trusting in God’s faithfulness, they enroled their daughters, Valeria and Sofia, to Cambridge Christian School. Since 2017, this wonderful family has been a blessing to our school community. The Mencia’s have modelled a deep trust in God and as a school society we want to do likewise as we fulfill our mission to educate students as Christ-centred thinkers, communicators and worshippers. We see the fruit of our mission as students learn to cooperate as a team, make presentations, and create amazing art. Here are a few stories that highlight recent student work.

Grade Six Collages

Recently, the Grade Six students took inspiration from a New York based artist, Megan Coyle, to make their own collages. They created lovely compositions. Collage can be a tricky medium to work in when you’re tackling it for the first few times, and the students did a wonderful job with it. Here’s an example from a student, Jazmin Guerrero Ortiz.

How wonderful for these students to be showcased on her blog. To see more of their work, check out the blog here: Megan Coyle

Countdown to Valentine’s Day for Grade Two

In the days leading up to Valentine’s Day, Grade Two students encouraged the staff by making Valentine’s Cards. They decorated the pages of an old book to make a bulletin board and paper hearts. Each day the children had to find and open the heart on the bulletin board, tear it open and complete the challenge inside. They took turns being secret detectives, spying on friends in the class to notice positive things that they were doing. At the end of the day, they revealed who they were spying on and shared their report, ending with the whole class shouting “we love you”. They had lots of fun and learned that they are able to love, because God first loved us.

Lego Robotics at CCS

Our Robotics Competition featured 21 of our Grade 6-8 students who enjoyed being a part of our Robotics Team. The learning, design, programming and ingenuity that went into their robots was incredible to see. We can be proud of the collaborative work of our students!

In addition to classroom activities like those mentioned, the students are rehearsing for the Spring Musical “Miss Nelson is Missing”, a fun story which we will present with a 1950s twist. You won’t want to miss this toe-tapping presentation!
