A Note from Mrs. Wilson
Hello CCS Families!
What a wonderful couple of weeks it has been here at CCS! The Egg Drop Event was a fantastic event, and it was amazing to see so many faces come together for a community event here in Chichester. Be sure to keep an eye on our calendar for events, field trips, and end of the year activities!
Have a wonderful week, and thank you for being apart of our school community!
Mrs. Jessica Wilson, Principal

Volunteers Wanted for Classrooms and PTO Events!
Chichester PTO Easter Egg Event
The Easter Egg Drop was a great success last weekend! What a great turn out we had and it was SO fun to see our families smiling and socializing after a long winter! We can't wait to build upon this for years to come!
There are so many people and places to thank for their donations of time, funds, and services. While we didn't get to have our hayride or story time, we would like to thank Concord Tractor, CM Trailers and Chichester Library for their generous offers. We look forward to incorporating these parts next year!
We would also like to thank:
*CCS students and staff
*Cy Tapley our resident EB
*Chichester Fire Dept
*Hope in Christ Church
*FL Merrill Construction
*American Way Realty
*Clark's Grain Store
*Parks and Rec committee
*Town of Chichester
*Multiple community members who contributed candy, eggs and funds
*Our PTO members who put a ton of time and consideration into creating this event! We are a small group of volunteers trying to help where we can. Please consider joining our team, we will always welcome your contributions!
PTO Fundraiser, Little Caesar's Pizza
With spring sports on the horizon, we know what those chaotic evenings are like after a late practice. So we chose a fundraiser that felt appropriate for the upcoming season. Having a meal ready in 10 minutes or less is great on those crazy nights, but when it's fun for kids to help make too, that's a bonus! Each kit makes 3 pizzas, and everything comes individually packed so it can be easily stored in the freezer.
Please be on the look out for information coming home on Little Caesars pizza kits. There's a few options to choose from, and even cookies and bread sticks. Below is a look at the options.
A portion of sales from this event will go to the PTO, who in turn will use it to fund everything from community and school events to financial aid for students and school initiatives. So please consider sharing with your friends and family!
Sale Dates: 3/28-4/22/22
Fundraiser ID#: 407342
Group ID#: 165976
