On Friday, February 2, Community Christian School of Pampa tallied up the results of their Buy-a-Box fundraiser held in January which came to over $1,400 to go towards the general operation of the non-profit private school.
Thirteen students reached the goal of filling up the entire grid of boxes, which granted them the award of getting to “pie” a teacher of their choosing. The winners’ names are as follows:
Oliver Villanueva, Jett Howard, Isabella Ybarra, Vianey Aguilar, Rachael Hageman, Willow Rossiter, Emri Summach, Emma Aderholt, Asher Hill, Ethan Joiner, and Audric Irlbeck.
The lucky teachers sitting on the other side of the table with shower caps and other protective clothing were Hannah Oshfeldt, Cristy Bromwell, Lisa Russell, Evelyn Noble, and the principal herself, Laura Green.
None of them were safe, but Oshfeldt was the brunt of the whipped cream wrath, being chosen a total of six times!
The next fundraiser to be held by CCS is their Appreciation Banquet & Annual Fundraiser set for Friday, March 1 at 6:30 PM at the MK Brown.
The fundraiser will be catered by Verona’s and will consist of a raffle and silent auction.
The banquet is Community Christian School’s biggest fundraiser of the year as well as the most anticipated.
To purchase a ticket, call the school at 806-665-3393.
CCS also partook in School Choice Week from January 21 through January 27, which included the younger students coloring pages that will be displayed for viewing during the banquet and the older students writing about why they love their school.
The kids had a week full of fun activities and were all given matching bracelets to show off their support for their school.
During that week, information was given about the importance of alternative schools aside from public school and the differences they make when it comes to academics, life lessons, and learning environment.
Community Christian School falls under the category of a non-profit private school that approaches education with a more relaxed grading system based on the needs of the child.
But CCS promises more than just academic excellence: they also emphasize character development and spiritual growth by building a firm foundation of faith for its students.
