Get Involved

CCES offers many volunteer opportunities across all three divisions. A survey is distributed before the start of school each year to gather interest. Once the survey is complete, parents are then assigned to specific tasks/committees.

Parents also have the opportunity to chaperone a day/overnight field trips. In order to become a volunteer in any capacity, all parents must first complete a background check and complete Safeguarding God's People Training.
