Please contact your student’s teacher to see how/where you can help. Blood drive appointments will be available soon. Watch your emails for an opportunity to sign up.

Scrip cards are available in the office anytime during the school day. Remember, 5% of your scrip card purchase gets credited to your tuition account.

Rock Star Volunteers Needed!
Would you like to spend the best part of the day with CCS students and earn volunteer hours at the same time?
Lunch and recess is a highlight of the students’ day, and your help contributes to its success as a safe, orderly, and fun time. It is also a critical time for the teachers to get a personal break and enjoy their own lunch. If you are able to help in the lunchroom or outside during lunch recess, please contact the school office. Our greatest need for help is every other Tuesday, and every Thursday & Friday. Free handshakes from Mr. Lempa, too!
