Welcome to the 2017 Fall CCPS Activities Guide!

The beginning of a school year is always incredibly exciting. From classes, teachers, and friends both new and old, the start of the school year holds endless opportunities for learning and fun. With so much excitement in the classroom, finding things to enjoy outside of school can be time-consuming. From sports, music, art classes, and so much more, there are many options right in our backyard. That is where the CCPS Activities Guide can help you. The guide, a partnership with Neapolitan Family, debuted last year as a one-stop shop for activities for students and families in the community. I am thrilled to see it continue in 2017-18. It is our goal to be all-inclusive and give as many businesses and organizations the opportunity to participate, free of charge. The guide will be distributed to nearly 50,000 students across the district. Like last year, the guide will be published three times a year. The first edition will include activities for the fall. December will have holiday camps as well as spring activities. In early April, the guide will feature information on summer activities and camps. We hope you find this information useful as we get ready to embark on another successful school year here at CCPS. Enjoy!
