Thirty Spring Lake Middle School 8th graders recently attended a three-day, two-nights field trip to Sound to Sea, an ecology and conservation facility on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. Students experienced life-changing activities that allowed them to work together, learn about the ocean and sounds off the NC coast, and create strategies to preserve the coastal area. Four teachers accompanied the students and observed the impact of hands-on education.

Ask Me About….#myCCSjob!

February is Career and Technical Education (CTE) Month! The purpose of this observance is to raise awareness of the role that CTE has in preparing our students for careers and college. CCS’ Student Services Department is always looking for an opportunity to support our colleagues and to let our students and families know about the support services that we provide.

CCS employs nearly 240 school counselors, school nurses, school psychologists, and school social workers! We love what we do and we hope that there are CCS students interested in these fields. Here is what CCS students who are interested in becoming a school counselor, school nurse, school psychologist, or school social worker, need to know about my CCS job!
