Holiday break

We genuinely hope you have a wonderful holiday break with your friends and family! Please keep in mind the school hours that have been shared with you, and please don't think about school too much. :-)

GREAT NEWS!!! New position...

We now have a new position funded through our blended learning initiative. Mr. Caleb Morgan joins our staff as the assistant to Ms. Redmond AND as our interpreter!!!!! He is currently a student at UNCC, and he is a Robinson graduate and CCS native. He will only be working 20 hours a week and mostly in the afternoons, but we are so thankful for him. You will receive more information soon on how you can request his services.
