An integral part of the development of a middle school student is his or her socialization with peers. To foster healthy, fun, and age-appropriate socialization, CCS faculty and parents sponsor a variety of activities in the evenings and weekends (“FANS” stands for “fun activity nights”) at least once a month, and all middle school students are invited to attend. In the past we have sponsored a fall festival, movie nights, ice skating at a local ice rink, snow tubing, bowling, hiking, a Thanksgiving feast, a New Year’s party, and spring picnics at a local park.
