-Parent and Student Volunteers Needed

As you could see in the video above, CCS is a non-profit school that relies on volunteers to operate each week.  All school staff members are volunteers without pay.  We encourage every parent and student to volunteer for CCS.  We need the following volunteers each week:

-Public Safety and Traffic Volunteers:  contact:  Maria Lu,, 919-349-9616

-On-site Parent Volunteers: online signup:  (password: carycs), contact: Haiwei Zhang,

-Room Parent Volunteers:  contact your student' class teacher

-Teaching Assistants: We have some teaching assistant volunteer opportunities for high-school students.   Please contact ACT director Owen Chen if you would like to volunteer as a TA for one of the ACT classes:, 919-523-7727


-Wechat Group for CCS Parents

We have a social media app - Wechat group for CCS parents.  CCS often sends some quick announcements to this CCS Wechat Group and parents could communicate with each other among topics related to CCS.   We encourage all parents to download the Wechat app on your phone and scan the bar code below to join the group:
