Back-to-School Nights
CCS hosts one BTS Night Barbeque in September. On these evenings parents can expect updates from the principal as well as an overview from the teachers on curriculum, assessment, outdoor education, how the classroom(s) will be structured, what students can expect, and much more.

El Tioga
This long-time school tradition, which is (to the surprise of many) a made-up name, is a learning center fundraiser, primarily for outdoor education trips. Every Friday, an El Tioga lunch is offered to all students for $5.

All-School Meetings
A weekly Friday tradition at CCS, All-School Meetings are a celebration of student success and an opportunity for all students to share their learning, to learn skills and address challenges that the school faces. It is also an opportunity for outside speakers and performers to come present to our community. All-School Meetings are a vital way for the entire school to come together. Parents and community members are encouraged to attend!

Thanksgiving Feast
The Friday before Thanksgiving is a special El Tioga, presented by the families of the 7-8 Learning Center. The whole school (students, families, and friends) sits down together at tables decorated with student writings and artwork for a sold-out Thanksgiving feast in the school’s Central Area. The event includes short presentations by each learning center on what they are thankful for.
