How tuition assistance helped this student stay at CCS

Carsten Hicks, a 5th grader at Frederickson Elementary, has attended CCS since Kindergarten.  His favorite things to talk about are his friends and his wonderful 4th grade teacher, Mrs. Harveson.  He is full of faith and he will tell anyone that God is first in his life.

Carsten’s parents recognize their faith and their children’s education as their top priorities, but one year they faced some hard financial decisions. 

Carsten’s mom said, “There was a point where we were getting hit hard, and we didn’t know if we were going to be able to keep the boys in Cascade Christian.”

Thanks to gifts like yours, tuition assistance provided just enough that year to keep Carsten in the school he loves.  

Since then, Carsten has flourished with amazing teachers like Mrs. Beard, and Mrs. Harveson. He is excited to start 5th grade this fall. 

Carsten wanted to thank you himself, “Thank you to those (you) who help our school and bless us.  Thank you for knowing that it’s good for kids to be here at our school; for showing us we can be happy and have good teachers and good friends.”
