Furnace Campaign

The furnace in our 5th & 6th grade middle school classroom gave out during January and needed to be replaced. This was an unexpected expense and CCS is now accepting donations toward the cost of the new furnace ($3,000). If you are able to help, please make checks payable to CCS and include “furnace” in the memo portion of the check. Spread the word!
