Zack Taylor, a 5th grader at CCS Puyallup Elementary, got to shadow Mr. Broberg for a day of leadership, character development, and a little treat for his friends!
Zack’s parents purchased the experience from the CCS Impact Auction in March. They had seen it in previous years and knew it would be a great opportunity for their son.
He started with greeting the students at the beginning of the day in his favorite hat. Then he joined his family chapel group for their monthly study. At lunch, he was able to invite a friend, Nick, and the two of them had a catered lunch with Mr. Broberg. The highlight for the student body was the ice cream that Zack and his friend were able to hand out to each student at the three lunch times.
Then on a more serious note, he accompanied Mr. Broberg during the school lockdown drill to ensure all the exterior doors were locked, and rattle the classroom doors to make sure they were locked (and listen for silence in the classroom.) At the end of the day, he and Mr. Broberg did crossing duty at the back of the school, helping students and parents cross safely to their vehicles.
Zack was admittedly stretched a bit, which is fitting for a new experience. He is not overly fond of being ‘on stage’, but challenged himself and had fun with it. In his time away from school, Zack is involved with many sports including soccer, playing on the Cascade Christian basketball team, and baseball. He enjoys music, singing, reading, and being a big brother to his two younger brothers. He has a special interest in most anything outdoors; plants, animals, and biking just to start.
In all, Zack loved this experience, saying, “It was awesome!”
Last week, in honor of Earth Day, students at CCS McAlder took part in several projects. Among other things, they made a pledge to care for God's creation and made Pine cone bird feeders.
During the process, they learned many different things. In addition to increasing fine skills, Kindergarteners learned how they should "respect" God's gifts He has provided, be "responsible" in taking care of those gifts, and at the same time create "relationship" with each other. Our growing leaders are preparing to impact their world!

Junior high science teacher, Mrs. Schimon, has added the use of 3D printers to the Project Lead the Way (PTLW) activities this year. Mrs. Schimon is teaching her seventh and eighth grader students how to write code, how to use the 3D printers, and the basics of engineering and technology in science.
In order to integrate new technology and a more 21st century approach to science, they have been doing more hands-on projects in Project Lead the Way. “This is fun as well as educational,” Schimon said, “because the students are able to create their own projects and be more involved in the activities.”
They are currently starting a robotics course, and will be making robots soon.

In addition, she added, "This experience provides the students with many enjoyable memories. They meet new friends they otherwise would never meet."

With a grand-slam home run by Carle in the bottom of the fifth inning, Cougar baseball brought home a season-opening win over Vashon 8-0 on Monday afternoon.
The game was scoreless through the first four and half innings, until a walk by Hannah, single by Adams, and another single by Fox loaded the bases. Hannah got the Cougs on the board by scoring on a passed ball, then Carle hit a home run to left field. Bartels, Woolery, and Hannah singled, Adams drew a walk, and Fox singled again, and the Cougs left the fifth inning with 8-0 lead.
Pitchers Fox (1 hit, 1 walk, and five strikeouts) and Carder (0 hits, 3 walks and 6 strikeouts) combined for the shutout.
Cascade Christian is proud to announce a unique and exciting venture that, beginning with the 2016-2017 school year, will give all High School students access to a Microsoft Surface with a keyboard and Pen. We believe that a one-to-one device program will enable us to better provide all students with a technological tool that will enhance their learning and achievement. This tool will afford them greater opportunities to be productive students and citizens as they enter a global environment that will require greater technology skills, collaboration, and teamwork. For more information, see our Technology @ CCS web pages.
Watch for more about how technology is being used in our Kindergarten Prep through 8th grade classrooms as well!
Feverishly working behind the scenes at every campus of Cascade Christian Schools is an amazing program dedicated to building the community that is CCS. From Early Learning Centers to High School, there is a group dedicated to each campus.
Parents for Cascade is a volunteer group of parents who dedicate their time and energy to unite parents through relationship and communication as they support the students, teachers and staff wherever there is a need.
Parent-teacher conferences have been part of Cascade Christian Schools since its beginning. Communication with parents about their child’s progress and the opportunity to see samples of their work kept all the key players in the loop – or so we thought. There was one key player missing when these discussions were taking place: the student.
