School Closure Pre K-6

June 15 - Update from Mrs. Calnon

Good afternoon, Happy Monday!

I want to start out by saying how proud I am of the achievements and accomplishments of our little Bulldogs. These accomplishments have been made possible with your support and through the dedication of our amazing CCS faculty and staff that have worked tirelessly to provide opportunities for all of our young people to grow and learn. Parents, I hope that you know, your partnerships, as families, have been invaluable and I am grateful for your commitment and support. We will never forget the 2019-20 school year, the one where we were quarantined!

A few important dates to remember:

  • We are asking our families to return all school materials to CCS this evening, Monday, June 15th between 6-8 pm. Parents, we ask that you come to the CCS old bus garage, located in the big parking lot, this evening between the hours of 6-8 pm to drop off your child’s Chromebook, library book and any other materials that belong to the school. Unfortunately, our yearbooks have not arrived yet. We are unable to disseminate yearbooks this evening and will be sure to notify you once the yearbooks arrive. We appreciate your patience.
  • The last day of school is tomorrow, Tuesday, June 16th. June 16th will be the turnaround day with a 10:10 dismissal. Meal delivery will begin at 8:00 am on June 16th - the last day of school.
  • We will be mailing report cards and progress notes home to families tomorrow, Tuesday, June 16th.
  • Many of our Bulldogs will be celebrating their birthdays during the summer. Please go to our CCS Website or Facebook page to view the summer birthday slideshow that was created to recognize our students celebrating their birthdays this summer!

I hope that learning will continue throughout the summer break and that you will continue to encourage your child to READ, READ, READ! With our support and guidance, our little Bulldogs have the heart, head and hands to change the world. I hope that you have a safe, healthy, fun summer with your family. I trust that I will see you in September! Mrs. Calnon

Dear Parents of Speech Students,

We have been thinking of different ways to help our parents and students during this time apart. We have added some general information to the website, including activities you can do with your child. We have also sent home packets to some families, but because of the short notice we were unable to give a lot of direction. Our therapy is very individualized and it is difficult to give information to whole groups. If anyone would like to email us and receive ideas and/or activities specifically geared to your child’s level and areas of need, we would be happy to do so. We are here to support you in any way you need.

Take care,
