There are so many ways to be involved at Central Christian School by volunteering! Every person planning on volunteering with the students must fill out a volunteer form and have a background check.
CCS Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) Mission Statement
Through prayer and service to our loving God, the purpose of the PTO is to enhance and support the educational experience at Central Christian School to develop a closer connection between school and home by encouraging parent involvement, and to improve the environment at Central Christian School through volunteer and financial support.
