Yesterday morning our 1st Graders took a Winter Wonderland Walk in OEC with Mrs. Campbell Bowers! They observed the various signs of winter around campus like cold temps, frost, trees without leaves, and brown grass. What they didnโ€™t expect to find were so many flowers in bloom and even a heart shaped leaf! We love that our campus has so many great ways to observe Mother Nature and all that she has to offer us!

Don't miss our CCS Student Entrepreneurs at tomorrow's Sea Island Farmers Market!! CCS students will be showcasing their handmade jewelry from 9:30am-1:30pm right here on our beautiful campus! Snag some last minute gifts for the holiday season and support a Student Entrepreneur.

Entrepreneurship is one of our Pillars here at CCS. We prepare students to enter the "real world" with an entrepreneurial spirit of problem-solving, exploring college and career opportunities, and seeking to be proactive and well informed with financial literacy.

The Entrepreneurship Program introduces students to all aspects of starting a business. Students create a business with a marketable product for the purpose of serving a small community and then learn the daily operational elements of businesses to create a business plan for starting and financing a small business.

Sounds cool, right?! See all of this in action tomorrow with our innovative students and their jewelry businesses!
