CCS PTF Fundraiser Link

If your student does not have a link, please register your student! If you are not connected to a current CCS Family, feel free to use this link to support our PTF Fundraiser.

Supporting PTF, means you're supporting...

...a parent-led group that partners with the school to serve in a variety of ways throughout the school year. Involvement in PTF provides a wonderful opportunity to build relationships within the school community and is an excellent way to teach our kids the importance of serving others. Please consider attending an upcoming PTF meeting or volunteering online for events and activities as they come up. We all have something to offer - it wouldn't be possible without you!

The Governor has stated masks are still necessary in schools, so there should be no changes from prior school requirements. This should continue to apply to public and private schools.


Masks aren’t necessary outdoors as long as they can try to keep physically distant as much as possible. If in close contact for more than a few minutes, will need masks on.


We will maintain our current procedures for masks in the building and will follow the recommendations for outdoor activities as listed above. Students may remove masks while outside for PE and Recess but must have them on when entering and exiting for PE and Recess.

We are loving our new app!

This is an easy way to show our teachers and staff how much we value who they are and all they do for our children. Thank you! - PTF Leadership Team

2020-2021 School Theme: PRESS ON

Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus. Philippians 3:13-14
