Financial Literacy Over the past few months, we have had the opportunity to participate in Hamilton Spectator’s financial literacy program called “Making Life Decisions”.

How Can We Make Canadian History Come Alive? How Can We Make Canadian History Come Alive? For the past few weeks the grade 7B class has been working on historical stories.

Spelling Bee Every year 4 students from each grade level at CCS are blessed with the opportunity to participate in the CCS Spelling Bee. I also had the privilege of participating in this splendid event.   For this affair, all the students that are participating head down at the time selected for their age group and receive some information on the competition that they are about to participate in. They then pick a number that is upside down on a table to see what order they will take turns spelling their words.   Of course, nobody wants to go first. A grade seven student said, “No one wants
