At CLCS we believe that student life is not found solely inside the walls of the classroom. Children learn and grow in so many different ways. That is why we provide many opportunities, outside of the classroom, for our students to experience life. Our hope is that they will begin to discover their God-given gifts academically and spiritually.
Students participate in events like tapping maple trees on the school property and producing maple syrup, taking field trips to the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, and building and installing raised beds for the school Garden Project.
Service projects are built into the curriculum and are an important part of student life at CLCS. Our older students act as interns in the primary classrooms, helping out once a week, and also serve as lunchroom helpers. During our annual Serve-a-thon spring fundraiser all students serve the local community while raising money for the school. This is truly the highlight of the school year in the eyes of our students because they are doing real work for real people and making a difference. These events are certainly fun, but they also build character in our students and open their eyes to a world of possibilities.
