Annual Giving Campaign Continues
The notion of "Giving Tuesday" is a bit of a recent phenomenon in American Culture. It follows Black Friday and Cyber Monday. You can learn more about it here. We used Giving Tuesday as the kick off of our Annual "Fund and Item" Giving Campaign. We have put our "Bites and Beverages" event (which was typically held each fall) on pause in favor of an online giving campaign and invite you to stay home and give rather than attend a "live event" in the fall. You are however, invited to attend our Annual Gala and Auction being held on March 10, 2017! Until the Gala , please consider joining in and participating in Giving Tuesday and remember to check with your employer about a matching gift program through your workplace.
We welcome our CCDS supporters including current and past parents, grandparents, alumni, parishioners and friends to help us reach our goal of making our wish list of items a reality as well as seeing our targeted programs take hold and grow. There are several ways to contribute including by check, cash, or credit card to make a tax deductable gift to our school.
Please contact the school office to donate by check or cash or use a credit card and make a donation to any of our targeted items. Thanks for your investment in our future!

Buy a “Book Bundle” to help us grow our classroom libraries-It takes 2,000 books in each classroom to make a good classroom library-that’s 16,000 books school wide. We currently have approximately 9,200 books and are hoping to fill our shelves.

Teacher Mini-Grant Fund
We all know that our teachers go the extra mile to provide excellent opportunities for our children. We also know that sometimes the “extra mile” can cost extra outside of the budget. We would like to add to our teacher mini grant fund where teachers can apply to the Parent Association for funding up to $250 so that our students can enjoy some additional projects and opportunities that enhance their educational experience. Our goal is to raise at least $3,000 so that every teacher can access full funding for a mini-grant. Please donate the amount of your choice to help us reach our goal.

Mystery Science School Membership
Mystery Science are lessons that inspire kids to love science. The lessons reach children before they've lost their natural curiosity so that teachers using the lessons can help the next generation develop a scientific understanding of the world. These are hands-on lessons that lead students in the doing of science and engineering.
Our teachers have used a free membership that is about to expire and we are hoping to gain funding for a school wide membership since both our teachers and our students are loving Mystery Science lessons. An annual membership is close to $1,200 for the school and we would like to be able to continue to utilize the wonderful lessons that we have come to enjoy.
