Welcome to the Winter CCPS Activities Guide!

With the new calendar year right around the corner, we wanted to share the many community opportunities available to students during 2017. This second edition of the CCPS Activities Guide is filled with a wide variety of activities for your children and family to enjoy. Whether your child’s interests lie in sports, arts, or music, there are many options throughout the community. Inside this guide, you will find listings for local after-school and weekend programs and classes offered in our area. We asked our local businesses and organizations to share their information in the hope that CCPS families can easily find the perfect activity for their child. The guide is distributed to nearly 46,000 students across the district. It is our goal to include as many organizations as possible. If you know of any business or organization that would like to be included in future editions of the CCPS Activities Guide, please forward the organization’s information to info@neafamily.com. I wish you all well this holiday season and I hope you enjoy your time off with family and friends. See you in 2017!

IT SHOULDN’T HURT TO BE A CHILD At age 10, Caleb wanted to die. As a teen, diagnosed with many mental illnesses, he felt like a “loser.” Suicide beckoned. Only self-harm eased the pain.

Caleb’s life changed when he came to David Lawrence Center, a leader in advanced mental health treatment for children. He worked with our specialized pediatric psychiatrists, clinicians, case managers and therapists. Today, 16-year-old Caleb plays lacrosse and drums his heart out in the high school band. He wants to be a mechanical engineer, and we believe he will be. Recovery from mental illness happens every day at David Lawrence Center, providing world-class comprehensive children’s mental health care. If a child you know needs help, call our pediatric mental health specialists today. Your call is the start of life-changing wellness.
