Many thanks to CCS Partners Oksenholt Capital and Meredith Lodging for their generous donation of the gym sideline chairs for our athletes and coaches to sit on during games!  We are so blessed by the support of our CCS Partners who make investments in our students like this one a possibility!
If you would love to see Central Christian School continue to have unique opportunities for your students and own a business, we may have the perfect opportunity for you!  

CCS Partners give to programs at Central Christian that they are passionate about and in turn are recognized on a very large banner in the gym, in the hallway of the school, on the tv screens in the lobby, and on our website. 

Partner contribution levels start at just $1500 and the financial gifts make a huge impact in the lives of our students contributing to the arts, technology, athletics, tuition assistance, facility enhancements, Teaching for Transformation and professional development.  It's a huge win-win!  If you'd like to hear more about the CCS Partner program to see if it's a fit for your business, please contact Shannon Polk.
In Mrs. McTeer's and Ms. Clark's prekindergarten class they focused on the Easter theme this week, and the opportunity to reflect upon Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross, and share the Gospel story! They enjoyed egg dyeing fun and made Easter crafts that the students will be able to display long after the holiday is over!

During science they learned all about the 5 layers of the ocean and creatures that live in the sea! They discussed how God made them all with each being able to produce offspring of the same kind. Students also enjoyed the Life Cycles unit! They learned about different creatures and what happens at each stage of their life cycle.  Their letter craft this week was M for Moose!
Mrs. Rocco’s kindergarten students are learning about Easter.  They painted the empty tomb and created fun and exciting Easter lapbooks!
Mrs. Cokenour's Kindergarten/1st grade class worked hard to earn a class party! The students chose to wear pajamas to school and bring a stuffy and a blanket. They made blanket forts during snack time and were excited to find out that Mrs. Leeper had made them popcorn to enjoy! The first graders read to their stuffies during reading groups and the kindergarteners got to "teach" their stuffies all about adding, subtracting, and number bonds during math with Mrs. Hannay!
In celebration of Easter week Mrs. Moore's class and Mrs. Poe's class got together to build some of the settings of the Easter story. Do you see the Triumphal Entry, the Crucifixion on the Hill at Calvary, and the Empty Tomb? They constructed a few of each scene and everyone enjoyed building with Legos and doing it together. They watched this video first. Please enjoy it with your family too!
He is Risen, He is Risen Indeed!!
In 2nd grade each student earned their Lego building license. Mrs. Poe shares "their building dilemma was to get Emma and Thomas together to have a playdate. The problem is a raging river between their homes. They REALLY want to play together so we need to get them to the same place so they can play. The students decided to build a bridge. What a great plan!! Every student has the same Legos but their bridges don't look alike. They are unique just like my students. God created each of us to be different than ANYONE else."

These great pictures were taken by the high school photography students.
Second Graders in Mrs. Vaccaro’s class are all-in on reading! They are practicing their reading every chance they get. They love library day and having “Library Grandma” read to them is always one of the highlights of their week. At the end of the week they have something special called, “Flashlight Fridays”. The lights go out and they read by flashlight. They love to read with, and to, stuffies, their friends, high school helpers, grandma helpers and in their reading groups. These second graders are becoming strong and independent readers and are always looking for new books to read and new authors to become acquainted with. 
"I can see God's Order in simple machines all around me helping to make lives easier and even more fun." With this learning target in mind, third-grade students spent several weeks researching simple machines and early inventions for a playground. After demonstrating learning through their playground projects and student reflections they enjoyed the day at a local park.
Mrs. Dillard opens the class with the words, “He is Risen!  The class responds with, “He is Risen Indeed!” Learning the events of Jesus' life that led up to His ascension has been very meaningful to the fourth grade class. The Bible readings included Jesus journey into Jerusalem, the Last Supper, the Garden of Gethsemane, Jesus death on the cross, His resurrection, and His ascension. Each student made a wall hanging to share with loved ones about our risen Savior and King!
Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife delivered between 150-200 Steelhead fish eggs to the 5th grade classroom.  They learned about stewardship and God's amazing care for His creation as they helped them hatch and grow before they released them into a waterway.

As part of their FLEx project, our 11th grade Chemistry students visited the City of Redmond water treatment plant and wrote an editorial on what they learned.  This article was featured in the most recent edition of the City of Redmond newsletter.

Thank you to all of the volunteers who have been helping us with the demo of the new building.  What a blessing!  We are down to our final seven days before Kirby takes over the project and we still have more to do.  If you are available tomorrow (Thursday, April 6th) or Friday (April 7th) or any day next week, please consider helping for a few hours or all day.  We are moving demo material to the dumpsters, removing carpet, and taking out celling tile grids.  As the saying goes, "many hands make light work!"  If you'd like more information or have questions contact Mike Polk at 541-350-1664 or email
We inherited two nice plants at the new building that are looking for new homes.  They are in large pots (about 24") and the ficus is about 6 feet tall.  If you have a spot that needs a big plant in your home or business, please let us know ASAP and we'll arrange a time for you to pick up one or both.
