We would like to invite you to become a member of the C.C.H.S. School Community Council.  The group is made up of parents, community members, and C.C.H.S. Staff members who come together for periodic discussion sessions.  At these roundtable discussions, the members brainstorm ideas to develop community and parental involvement and provide parents with services that they may not be able to obtain by other means.  The S.C.C. believes that more informed and involved parents translate directly into a more positive educational environment.  It is the hope that the initiatives developed by the School Community Council can encourage more parental involvement and support for students. 


If you are interested in becoming a member of the C.C.H.S. School Community Council, or would just like to share some ideas, we would like to talk with you!  The first meeting of the S.C.C. will be held on Monday, August 25th at 7:00 P.M. in Room 41E at Central.  If you have any additional questions, please contact Mrs. Ami Shanafelt, Mrs. Mandy Ringwald, or Mr. Kevin Meyer at 526-4578 or via email at
