A Visit to City Hall
On Wednesday, November 14 the grade two classes went on a trip to city hall as part of their unit about our local community. They made a card with a personal message for each city councillor which they dropped off on their visit. Two students have shared their thoughts on the trip.

Winter Spirit Week
WOW! There sure was a lot of Christmas spirit at CCS during spirit week December 17-21. On Monday we took pictures with our friends and Christmas props. On Tuesday we decorated our teacher like a Christmas tree using ornaments and tinsel that everybody brought to school that day. On Wednesday we wore Christmas sweaters and Santa hats and I’m pretty sure we all felt like we were wearing Christmas. On Thursday every class cuddled up with a blanket and enjoyed their favourite movie snacks while watching a Christmas movie together. We all had a pretty great week!

On Friday, September 21, grade 1a had an awesome day at the Ancaster Fair. Despite the very windy conditions, the students said they had a great time and it was a really fun field trip.They had a long day full of shows, exhibits, sightseeing, and getting to know each other better and better.
A personal favourite for most of the students was petting and holding a wide variety of animals. Their favourite was the super soft and cute bunnies. It's always fun to hold them, isn't it? I’m sure for any 6-year-old boys it's the coolest thing in the world to see a king cobra snake.

Grade 5 Thanksgiving Meal
On Friday, October 5, if you happened to be at CCS you might have smelled something yummy throughout the halls. Chances are that it was the grade 5 thanksgiving meal!
The grade 5 classes got together on Friday to build community and what better way to do it than a nice thanksgiving lunch together. And what a meal it was! Every student in grade 5 brought something for the meal.
We enjoyed turkey, ham, stuffing and even meatballs. Oh and don’t forget the pies and cheesecakes. There was so much food that Mr. Boonstra and Mrs. VanEgmond and the other staff were invited to join us. When we
