Cornerstone At Home

Well, this isn't where we thought we'd be back at the beginning of the year but we do believe God knew and has prepared us for just such a time as this. This issue is just a fun reminder of what everyone is up to and that we are still a family and still CCS even from our homes. We love you!


We're Not Judging!

1. the process of receiving or giving systematic instruction, especially at a school or university.  (


In this case, even the definition is boring. We Americans would all agree children should receive an education. But we might all differ on how we would define a “good” education. There’s a huge range between adequate and exceptional. These past five weeks of being a forced semi-home educator have made me feel even more strongly that if my children are all going to spend so much of their childhood in school, it better be a lot more than adequate.

2. an enlightening experience. (  

This second meaning is essential to the first. My children deserve to be enlightened. They have been created by a God who delights in variety and beauty and wonder. If their education includes that God, then their learning can certainly not exclude His qualities. 
Cornerstone Christian and her families have worked this last year toward getting the Cornerstone name out into our community. Some great strides have been made in this direction. As we move forward ideally, we will have more opportunities to show what we’re about. By the very nature of our name, people will know that Christian teaching is the Cornerstone of who we are. We utilize an old and proven curriculum with Abeka. Our families all hold to traditional Christian values. We have an exceptional school.
Families grow and change and come and go through our doors for various reasons. We are thankful to be a part of their lives and a blessing to them for a time. Those families will always be a part of Cornerstone. We are grateful for the good words and support as you have occasion to tell others about the truly exceptional education your child receives at CCS.

Congratulations to our Fun Run Winners - from Terri McCollister

CCS Friends and Families,
It pleases me to be able to share with you all how successful we were in our first annual Camden Family Fun Run. Although our goals for this very first year were simply to break even monetarily while raising awareness about our school, we actually made money! With your dedication, determination, and desire to help the growth of CCS, we raised $3,598.93. I would like to congratulate Stella Mae for winning first place for most money raised and Kinleigh not far behind in second place. McKenna and Elianah had the most confirmed sponsors from both online runners and business sponsors. Eva Rose came in second with Addison and Annsley not far behind in third. I'm so proud of our CCS children and their parents. I sincerely applaud all efforts, and am so thankful for everyone's willingness to help make this event successful. Thank you! Next year we might actually get to run!

Your Cornerstone Family thought you might like a look at how your teachers are doing these days. We are blessed with great teachers who are doing a terrific job. Thank you!


Mrs. Stacy McElrath has a new Teaching Assistant these days. Lillie Kate's a little messy, but extremely cute. And, somehow Mrs. "Super Stacy" has managed the 2-day sale of her house, (praise the Lord), teaching from home, and the moving of her family to North, SC. She's amazing and we've been so blessed to have her.


We're missing doing chapel together, but Pastor Sean McElrath is certainly staying busy. Here he is shown preaching outside in Lugoff and just in time for Easter he began his ministry as Pastor of First Baptist Church in North, South Carolina. What a blessing he has been to Cornerstone and we send our thanks and our prayers to him as He answers this new call.


Mrs. Rebecca Galloway is letting Kiah do all the grading so no worries! We're so thankful for all of our teachers and we so appreciate how you juggle CCS and home and family!


Mrs. Kalee Coates is doing a great job with our preschoolers! What a blessing she is to us.

And our students are all still working hard at home. Well done Cornerstone Families! Don't forget to contact us for help if you need anything at all. And, send in those photos so we can all see each other!

Addison and Annsley seem to be all smiles! Eva Rose and Sullivan are working hard.

Just a few reminders from Cornerstone

Tuition registration fees are due May 1st. You may pay through check, cash, there's a drop box at the school, or you may pay by PayPal with an extra fee. We know these are difficult times right now, and have changed the normal requirement of all fees due at this time. We will let you know more due dates as we are able to make more decisions. 

If you need anything, please let us know. We have folks that would like to help if they can.

Be on the lookout through Remind and our Facebook page, we're planning a CCS Trivia Night online, for our students and families in the next week or so. And, maybe even a Virtual Talent Show if we're not able to do it together. Please contact Bekah Lawing if you can help with these ideas.
