Shakespearean Shenanigans

CCS-America celebrated its annual Shakespeare Week with a variety of activities. Celebrations included a performance by a court jester from No Sleeves Magic, an informational presentation from Cape Fear Raptor Center on falconry, ballet lessons, archery demonstrations, and more! Students in K-5 read grade-level-adapted Shakespearean plays and made crafts corresponding with their play. Students in grades 6-8 read several famous Shakespearean plays in their entirety: Julius Caesar (6th), Macbeth (7th), and The Tempest (8th). Some middle school classes prepared a Shakespeare Showcase featuring different aspects of life during the 1600s and gave presentations to elementary classrooms. All students and staff learned and celebrated the life of the greatest writer in the history of the English language, William Shakespeare! Learn more about the life of William Shakespeare below.

We the People of the United States of America

The true power in our nation’s government resides in the first three words of the Constitution, “We the People”. Students of CCS-America observed Constitution Day on September 16, commemorating the signing of the U.S. Constitution on September 17, 1787. Students celebrated by participating in a parade and learning about the importance of the Constitution through different activities: Escape Rooms, videos, books, crafts, and more. Each student received an American flag (made in the USA) to wave while marching in the parade to patriotic music. All campuses were visited by the Father of the Constitution, James Madison! James Madison gave a speech and then joined the students on the parade route. At CCS-America we hope ALL American citizens know and value the US Constitution.
