Prayse Rallies

The idea behind Prayse (prayer & praise) Rallies is that students can come together in a free and non-distracting atmosphere created and led by students themselves to worship God and seek His will for their lives and their schools in a way that is both attractive to this generation and glorifying to God.

Prayse Rallies are a great event to bring to your school as a tool to bring together the various Christian clubs and organizations in a nondenominational worship and prayer environment.

This year’s prayse rallies are scheduled for:

  • February 16
  • April 20

For more information on prayse rallies, contact one of the Student Ministries Shepherds (Caleb or Mateo) or their sponsor (Mr. Boucher).

Repetition is a powerful memory tool. In an effort to increase outreach opportunities and raise awareness, Community Service Carolyn and Millie have started regular service events called theServing. How regular? One Saturday each month. Check back for each month’s service activity.


  • Saturday, December 16, 2017
  • 8-11 a.m.
  • Meet at CSCS at 7:30 or Springs Church (1515 Auto Mall Loop) at 8:00
  • See waiver below.

The name and logo of theServing helps students identify and remember these service events. The ladle is used as the logo since it represents a popular icon of serving: the soup kitchen. The dream is for theServing to grow into a well-known, well-attended event that shines brightly the love of God to the “least of these.”

Friends of the Commons

The Commons is unique to our high school and is the heart of the high school student body at CSCS.  It is a place for student to gather socially in a socially and physically safe environment before and after school to hang out and eat food from the student café; plan social, spiritual, and service events; and hosts prayer, worship, social events; and have athletic team gatherings in the evenings.  The Commons is also an excellent gathering place for teacher and administrator events and a great rental facility.  In all these various uses, the Commons is one of the busiest rooms at CSCS.

Since the Commons transitioned from our lunch room into our student lounge, we’ve had two sets of furniture.  Each set of furniture has lasted 6 years. The first set of furniture was purchased by a parent donor in December of 1999.  That set of furniture lasted 6 years and was replaced out of the High School principal’s budget in June of 2006.  The second set of furniture has lasted much better than the first.  I would attribute this to the design of the furniture and especially to the (synthetic?) leather covering.  In the last years, the current set of commons furniture has begun to deteriorate. This deterioration has included tears, broken feet, and structural damage.  Based on current experiences 6 years is about as long as we should expect furniture to last when being used by a “family” of 200-300 students.

Recently a group of students repainted the Commons bringing a new and refreshing look.  However, we are continually looking for students, parents, faculty, and alumni who are interested in helping maintain the Commons as a great environment for Students.
