CCCS Supports Sandy Hook Elementary

CCCS PicWe wanted to take a moment and celebrate some of the compassion and care that our students displayed last month in the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary School tragedy. Upon hearing the news, our students were moved to help the faculty and students at Sandy Hook in some way.  Madeline Ludwick, student council member, requested a green and white dress down day for the school.  She then researched online and found out that many other schools all over the country were doing the same.  Our CCCS family came through as always. We were amazed at the support.  It was definitely the most participated dress down day we ever had.

Crescent City Christian School also raised $1,004.00.  Faculty wore ribbons to honor the teachers who lost their lives serving our youth and hung green and white ribbons in front of the school.  Students also made cards to give to the students who attend Sandy Hook Elementary.

As we move further and further from the events that happened late last year at Sandy Hook Elementary School, the world’s attention will shift to the latest breaking news stories but the families effected by this are still grieving.  Let us not forget to continue praying for those who lost loved ones.

Teaching and instilling the values of Christ is a top priority for CCCS and we are thankful to see our students and faculty reaching out and displaying His love and compassion to our neighbors in need.

Think Inside The Box

This weekend, 32 students from our High School participated in an event they named, “Think Inside The Box”. The purpose of “Think Inside The Box” is to bring a greater understanding to the challenges facing our homeless population and the responsibility we have as a community to reach out and be a source of hope.

The students chose to sacrifice some of their every day comforts on Friday night.  They went without the luxury of running water, building and sleeping in hand-made cardboard boxes and learning how to ration food. The event concluded Saturday with a street reach in downtown New Orleans and the French Quarter where students handed out bottled waters, prayed with people and shared a message of hope in Jesus with the purpose of leaving a legacy that goes beyond personal achievement and the gaining of material possessions – an eternal legacy that encompasses the words that Jesus taught us when He said, “love your neighbor”.

We are proud of our students and their passion to leave a mark on this earth that points to the great name of Jesus.

Students built and spent the night inside the boxes they made, simulating some of the challenges facing our homeless population.

Praying for our homeless population as a team of High School students goes out into downtown with waters and passing out a word of hope in Jesus to those less fortunate.

“Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. 35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.” Matthew 25: 34-36

Basketball Night With WDSU News 6

WDSU News 6 sent out a team of basketball players on Monday night to take on our CCCS and other Celebration Church staff. It was a fun filled night of basketball.  Our students  came out in great support cheering on Coach Will, Manley Miller and lots of other staff. It was a close game but WDSU pulled out with a win. We may need a rematch soon!

High School Grads Message – “Attitude Of The Heart”

Congratulations to our 2012 Graduating Class! At Sunday’s Graduation ceremony, CCCS Administrator, Dave Jochum ended on an encouraging note in his message to our High School graduates.  “Guard your heart above all else for it determines the course of your life” Proverbs 4:23.

He encouraged graduates to remember that, “the attitude of our hearts will either repel people from you or draw people to you.” Our attitudes have an enormous impact on the outcome of our lives. We were reminded on Sunday that “your attitude not your aptitude determines your altitude”.

It is always a sweet tradition to send out our young men and women into the next phase of life. Our prayers go out to you today CCCS graduates that “the LORD make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you” Numbers 6:25. It has been an honor and a privilege to carry on the tradition of education here at Crescent City Christian School.

It remains our prayer that when your child graduates from CCCS, they will not only be equipped with academic knowledge but they’ll also know who they are in Christ and how to carry their faith with them into everyday life.

Congratulations class of 2012!
