Each year during our Harvest Celebration Weekend (held during Columbus Day weekend) we host a special dinner for those adults who are inolved with and support Cornerstone. This year the dinner will take on a different format as guests tour the school in a progressive dinner-style event. Guests will visit several classrooms to learn about the 2014-2105 school-wide goals and initiatives. During dessert Mrs. Tonya Snyder, our principal, will share more about the initiatives and the ways that we can work together to make our goals a reality.
This is a great opportunity for any adult who supports Cornerstone to come and be inspired by what God is doing at CCS.
