On Wednesday, September 13, the CCS community will gather in the evening at our annual volunteer expo.  There are many assorted duties that we ask parents to do to make our school run well.  Thank you in advance for everything you will do this school this year.

But that's not all of it.

CCS values all kinds of contributions and volunteering is a crucial contribution - it's a donation of time and expertise.  The school needs your help.

But guess what?  There's more to it than that.

By volunteering at CCS you are helping your child and all CCS students have a deeper and more enriching experience.

And it's even bigger than that!

CCS is dedicated to education for democracy and for democracy to work well, citizens must come together to contribute their time and expertise for the greater good.  There are always many small tasks that must be done for big ideas to be successful.  By volunteering at CCS (or anywhere), you are showing your child how to contribute to something larger than you.  You are modeling how to give of yourself to your community.  You are enacting democracy in your child's life.

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has."  Margaret Mead
