Race of Champions
The 9th Annual FASTAR Race of Champions was held on Wednesday, April 26th, and the competitors from each CCS-America school brought incredible skill, speed, and accuracy.
After the quick four races, each with four “laps” of reading and math, CCS-Southport was victorious by less than 9 seconds, making this the closest race we have ever had! Congratulations to all of the champion racers, and especially to CCS-Southport team members for their first victory!
If your student is interested in this thrilling academic race, be sure to sign them up for FASTAR in the 2023-2024 school year!
The History Bowl
The Roger Bacon Academy presented the 7th Annual History Bowl last Friday, May 5th. After two mock Bowls and countless hours spent studying, students in grades 5-8 came as teams from each CCS-America school to compete in this final History Bowl Competition.
Throughout the year, students learn up to 400 questions that could be asked. These questions correspond with RBA’s chronological history curriculum. The abundance of historical knowledge, sportsmanship, and professional attire from students was truly impressive!
Congratulations to CCS-Whiteville for bringing home the trophy in grades 5, 6, and 8. CCS-Southport brought home the trophy in grade 7. The competition was close, and all CCS-America students should be proud of their hard work and performances.
Celebrating the Arts at CCS-America
CCS-Leland and CCS-Whiteville students shared their work from this past year at the Annual Art Shows. Families and Staff watched Cheer, Dance, and Chorus performances, walked through Art exhibits, and more!
CCS-Whiteville started this annual event last year, and Mrs. Patrick states, “I am so thankful for the opportunity to have this event at our school for a second year. The Arts Showcase gives students the opportunity to be recognized for their artistic talents and creativity. This year, we had hundreds of parents and students watch the performances, view artwork, and visit our Glowing Art Room. I am so grateful to Ms. Singler, our art teacher, and all the elective teachers who dedicate so much time to these programs.”
Thank you to all who came to see the incredible work done by CCS-America students! Check out the amazing artwork and performances at the links below!
Students of the Month
Virtue is an important part of CCS-America’s classical curriculum. Each month, students are recognized for displaying a specific character trait that they are not only learning and practicing, but also recite daily in our Pledge.
April’s character trait was Respect. Students who show respect treat others with honor and dignity. Respect is seen in the School Pledge as “I pledge to be obedient and loyal to those in authority.” CCS-America students apply these words to their everyday lives by treating adults with courtesy, using good manners, and treating their peers the way they want to be treated.
Congratulations to all of these students who demonstrated exemplary respect. Check them out on the links below!
