Dear CCS Parents and 8th Graders,

Wow, what an eventful few days we have had. I hope that everyone is
safe and preparing to get back to a normal schedule.

As you know Grandparents Day is Friday. Due to the events in the last
few days we really need parents and 8th grade students to rally and
help us spruce up our campus!! We are all proud of CCS and want it
to look the best it can for all our Grandparents and Special friends
that will visit the campus on Friday.

We are asking for help on Thursday afternoon from 3:30-4:30pm. Please
bring hedge clippers and adult operated weed eater. Bring your strong
muscles and be ready to pull some weeds!!

Thank you so much, I am looking forward to seeing many smiling faces
on Thursday!!
