2024 Handwriting Contest Winners
National Handwriting Day is celebrated each year on January 23rd, the birthday of John Hancock. Hancock is best known for being the first and most prominent signatory to the Declaration of Independence. Because of this, a person’s signature is often referred to as his or her “John Hancock.”
As handwriting is an important aspect of CCS-America’s curriculum, the annual Handwriting Competition is held each year on National Handwriting Day. Students in all grades are given a phrase to copy and a prompt to answer in their neatest handwriting. Grades 4-8 are required to write in cursive. Entries are then judged on spacing, size, shape, slant, the use of proper capitalization, and content. First-place winners and honorable mentions receive cash prizes and classrooms that display overall handwriting excellence receive door medallions.
Check out the winners and honorable mentions at the links below! Great job to all CCS-America students for their hard work!

Students of the Month
CCS-America students are recognized monthly for displaying a specific character trait from our School Pledge that they not only say, but also practice in their daily lives.
January’s character trait was Honesty. Students who show honesty are truthful in what they say and how they conduct their everyday lives. Honesty is seen in the School Pledge as “I Pledge to be truthful in all my works.” Students apply these words by telling the truth, playing by the rules, and not exaggerating facts.
Congratulations to all of these students who demonstrated exemplary honesty. Check them out on the links below!
