Welcome From Our Head Of Schools
Dr Matt Isenberg
Head of Schools
Head Schools Letter for September 2022
As we say goodbye to August and hello to the beginning of the Fall season,
I am pleased to share with you that we have had a successful first month of
school at CCS! I want to thank each of you parents, students, and our
fantastic faculty and staff for a smooth start. Our classes are fully
engaged in instruction and teachers and students have settled into their
pace and flow. We have had a dynamic kickoff to our athletic seasons with
some great wins from our girls volleyball teams and a first Friday “Knight”
Lights victory last week from our varsity football team, along with our
cheer team and inaugural marching band and color guard. Most importantly,
our primary mission of developing Christian leaders is off to a strong
start with meaningful chapels, plans for student mission work, and other
great opportunities for spiritual growth.
We have also celebrated some great fundraising events this month that have
culminated with last week’s EE book fair and this week’s Boosterthon! And
on Boosterthon, we are so close to our goal! Please help us get there with
our Labor Day Weekend push to close out a great effort! Please know that on
behalf of CCS and our church and school communities, I want to sincerely
thank each of you for your continued support with our fundraising efforts.
We are committed to being good stewards of the money we raise to improve
and enhance student learning, activities, and resources. On the note of
stewardship, I will be reaching out to you later with a great way to join
us in partnership with the Arete Scholars organization to turn tax credits
into support for our students! More to come on this, but we are really
excited about this opportunity to meaningfully grow and expand our student
A final note of thanks – last week we had a great 1st round of “Coffee and
Conversation” events in which we met with parents from Early Education,
Elementary, and Middle/High over the course of 3 days. Thanks to all who
came out and thanks as well for the insightful feedback on where we are on
target as a school and what it would look like to go to the next level
across our campus. We will be having more events like this periodically,
and at different times – we hope to see you again!
In terms of the month ahead, I want to draw attention to a few dates and
events for September…
Don’t forget that this Monday, September 5, is Labor Day and school will
be closed. Likewise, we will have Fall Break between September 19-23 and
will also be closed.
Eat More Chicken with us and support our students at our Chick Fil A
Spirit Night on September 13! All receipts turned in from Truitt’s on
Jonesboro Rd. will benefit CCS…
…and…if you’re a CCS Elementary family after you’ve gotten your Chick
Fil A dinner please plan to attend our Elementary Curriculum night!
Calling all Grandparents! Grandparents Day at CCS will be celebrated on
September 16. We will be sending out information on parking and events
soon. Also, Community Bible Church will be starting a small group
specifically for Grandparents to share experiences and support each other
beginning on September 25!
Get your Ice Cream fix and support CCS at the same time with our Scoops
Spirit Night on September 27!
Finally, if you are looking for a church home, we’d love to see you on
Sunday at Community!
