You are all invited to the final elementary concert of the year for elementary band and orchestra students. Come check it out and support the growth of these young musicians! It starts at 7:00 in the CHS auditorium this Thursday and will last about an hour with the orchestra performing first.
Each spring we ask our parents and students to complete a survey so that teachers, principals, and the district office can determine how our parents and students feel about your school. It is an opportunity for parents and students to have a voice in their school. The results are used to help us plan for ways that we can improve. It lets us know what our students think is going well at school and what areas they feel we need to improve in.
CCSD opened its campus today to students from across Ross County to hear the message shared by NBA Great Dominque Wilkins. In a packed Hatton Gymnasium, he shared information about the obstacles he has overcome in life and his passion for finding a cure for diabetes. Check out the photos.
