Stop the Silence. Help End the Violence.

A hero doesn't necessarily have to wear a cape and tights, maybe a hero speaks up for what's right. Maybe that hero could be you. If you see or hear something that doesn't seem right, you can submit a confidential tip to OK2SAY. OK2SAY allows anyone to confidentially report tips on criminal activities or potential harm directed at Michigan students, school employees, or schools.


CCHS Quiz Bowl

Mr. May is welcoming new Quiz Bowl participants for the 2018-2019 school year. Meets will begin in October. Please contact Mr. May for more information. cory.may@myeagles.org

CAUTION! Slow Down In School Zones!

Children are more difficult to see around parked cars and can dart into traffic. Please slow down and be alert for children and pedestrians in our school parking lots and driveways. To help with the pickup line at the elementary school buildings CUES parents could park in the lot west of the CUES building and allow their student to walk to them.
