Reading Success! As we wind down the year, we can’t help but show our enthusiasm over young readers. Learn more about reading at CCS and student progress.
Did you know that there are over 100 letter-sound combinations in our language that children must learn to grow into strong readers?
It was concerning that most of today’s curricula averaged inclusion of only half of these sounds, which are crucial to reading mastery. CCS set out on a course to teach a full phonics program to our students, knowing that this would set children up for life time reading success.
What about the struggling reader?
CCS did not need a program that would help the struggling reader because those systems were already in place. A program that ensured the success of the average reader while challenging the excelling reader toward deeper reading in Foundations and Frameworks was our ultimate goal.
Developing the Program:
After examining available options and research, we benefitted from the training and expertise from two leading phonics professionals and their organizations. By making purchases from more than one company, we were able to assemble a program that offers systematic and explicit phonics, multi sensory manipulatives that reinforce skills, a plethora of reading materials that develop fluency and comprehension, spelling and writing components, and more. We have been blessed to draw from the wisdom of our own teachers as we have all worked together to give our children the very strongest reading foundation possible. Finally, we have enjoyed conversing with fellow independent schools who are on this same journey.
Listen to us read!
While charting progress throughout the year, we have been pleased to see such strong reading success in what we know to be a stellar program. Taking a sneak peak at achievement scores, we are pleased to see overall classification of advanced in reading and significant gains at every level. The number of advanced readers at CCS is 4 times that of the national average. We look forward to local comparisons as they become available.

Bring your shoe boxes to school by November 14! The week before Thanksgiving is Operation Christmas Child collection week. The students learned about this wonderful program during a chapel service a few weeks ago and are encouraged to pack a shoe box to send to a child in need. Any standard sized shoe box or small plastic container can be used. Determine whether your gift will be for a boy or a girl, and the child’s age category: 2-4, 5-9, or 10-14. Fill the box with a variety of (non-perishable/ non-liquid) gifts for that child. On November 14 each class will walk with their boxes to the distribution center set up in the CCS gym. For more information about the program, please visit the website www.samaritanspurse.org or if you have specific questions e-mail Cheri Creel at email@example.com.
