This week, the parents of CCS will host our annual Staff Appreciation Luncheon. They will take over the kitchen with many, many donated delicious dishes, create a tranquil lunch space, provide the staff with massages, and supervise the students for a short time so that for an afternoon, the adults of CCS are well-fed and cared for. Thank you for thanking us.
