Grandparents' Association

At Cumberland Christian School we believe that the home provides opportunities for education and learning beyond the classroom. Grandparents serve as lifelong educators, furnishing us with the outlook and resolution necessary to navigate life.  Additionally, a grandparents’ association allows the opportunity to honor the very active and much appreciated grandparents of CCS.

The Grandparents’ Association adds an extra dimension to Cumberland Christian School.  This involvement manifests through custom-crafted services for students, faculty, and staff, so that the entire CCS community is enriched by our grandparents’ knowledge, experience, and wisdom.  Through special events, publications, and donations, we encourage you to get involved in the school in any way you can.

A calendar of grandparents’ programming, as well as other programs that may be appropriate for grandparents, is available on this page (see right column).  To volunteer, give a gift, attend an event, or just get in touch, please contact the Main Office at (856) 696-1600, ext. 301 or send email to grandparents@cccrusader.org.  We have a number of exciting activities and events planned for the upcoming school year and hope that all grandparents of Cumberland Christian students will join the Grandparents’ Association.  Whether you live near or far and no matter in what stage of life you are—retired, busy with grandchildren, or employed—there is a way for you to get involved at CCS.

An Elementary Reading Program is being implemented through the Grandparents’ Association. Grandparent reading days will be the first Tuesday of every month and will also filter to the third Tuesday of the month if interest dictates.  Any grandparents that would like to read to a class should contact Kathy Ploucher at (856) 696-1600, ext. 323 or kploucher@cccrusader.org to set up a time. You may read to any classroom or specify your grandchild's class.  Also, you may read your favorite children's books or ask the teacher to choose them for you.

Each year, grandparents are needed to help in the following areas:
  • Pray CCS (meets the first Friday of every month at 8:30 a.m. in Stratton Hall)
  • Concessions at Crusader Cafe
  • Crusader Convenience Store
  • Elementary Reading Program
  • Campus Beautification Projects
  • Grandparents’ Annual Giving Campaign
  • CCS Fall Fest
  • Grandparents’ Day
  • Crusader Challenge Golf Tournament
  • Pastors’ Breakfast
  • Grandparents’ Advisory Board (GAB)

There are no fees to join our Grandparents’ Association; it is just a way for us to say "thank you" to our grandparents for all that they do for our school.  We hope you are able to take advantage of some of these opportunities to become an even bigger part of your grandchild’s school experience. Thank you for all that you do!


GRANDPARENTS’ ASSOCIATION MISSION STATEMENT:

Our mission is to provide generational support to our grandchildren at Cumberland Christian School and to their parents, our children. We serve the school with our time, our prayers, our finances, and other resources in gratitude for the contribution it is making in the lives of our families and the greater CCS community.  We want to leave a legacy of Christian faith and principles as the centerpiece of our heritage, and we believe this can be accomplished through enabling the school to continue providing excellent education in a Christian atmosphere.
