Activities

Our grandparents used to have an expression "All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy".  They knew, as we do, that play, recreation & socialization are an important part of learning how to interact with others.  We have several before-school and after-school clubs that provide both learning and play while building friendships through shared interests.

Drama Club

CCS is offering a Drama Club to all students in grades 2-8. If you want to have confidence and tap into your creative self, then this club is for you! The Drama Club typically meets on Friday afternoons after school, depending on volunteer leadership. Call the school office for more information.

Mount Brighton Equipment Rental and ski lessons if needed:

An alternative option for equipment is available from Boyne Country Sports in Novi.   Please find the details below:

“Junior Has a Fit” Equipment Program – Boyne Country Sports

There is a $40 Membership per child to enroll.  You can purchase a pair of gently used skis, bindings and boots for around $210.  Sharpening and waxing of skis and binding adjustment costs an additional $30.  At the end of the season you return your equipment and receive a voucher for the total cost of the equipment to use again next year.  Every year thereafter you would only have to pay the $30 fee for sharpening, waxing and binding adjustment.  The kids exit the program when their foot size exceeds a men’s 7 or women’s 8 or when their weight exceeds 100lbs. (Whichever comes first.)  When the kids leave the program the last voucher is good towards the purchase of new equipment.   They also have snowboards available for a nominal price difference.

If you’re looking to purchase a helmet there are several websites that have last year’s models at reduced prices.  (www.evo.com, www.backcountry.com.)
