CYPRESS CHRISTIAN SCHOOL NEWS CCS to Participate in the College Board AP Capstone Diploma Program CCS is one of approximately 1,500 high schools worldwide to implement the AP Capstone Program - an innovative program that allows students to develop skills that matter most for college success, such as research, collaboration and communication. Developed in direct response to feedback from higher education faculty and college admission officers, AP Capstone complements the in-depth, subject-specific study of other Advanced Placement courses and exams. The program consists of two courses taken in sequence: AP Seminar and AP Research.

Even with the entire greater Houston area recovering from Hurricane Harvey and the post-storm flooding, the CFISD community showed an incredible amount of generosity in the live auction, freezer sale and via additional monetary contributions to students. The Premium Sale (live auction) unofficially raised nearly $340,000. Final amounts from the Freezer Sale (animals not placing high enough for the live auction), Agriculture Mechanics and Horticulture silent auction and additional gifts to students are not yet available, but one new record was broken: Conda Maze JRP LLC paid $31,000 for the Grand Champion swine exhibited by Jessica Byrd (Cypress Falls), eclipsing the previous record. The victorious Lady Patriots and their fabulous Coach, Jim Hardwick, end their terrific season with a feisty win! Congratulations to our MS and HS basketball teams for playing Patriot Strong this season. 6 “Knowing the tremendous hardship (Hurricane Harvey) placed on the community, we were prepared for participation to be down,” said Denise Kubecka, lead curriculum coordinator in the career and technical education department. “When it came time for students to turn in their entries, we realized our numbers would once again be strong. In the wake of all going on in the community, families found a way to keep their children involved in the FFA program. It is always an emotional experience for me to watch the pride the students exhibit as they walk into that arena. This year was even more exciting knowing the extra obstacles many students had to overcome.” March 2018 | Sydney Harbour Community Newsletter
