We had so much fun with bubbles this morning on the preschool yard. The children worked with electric fans, hand fans and the force of their own breath to move the bubbles through the air.

We want to thank you for your current pledges and donations totaling over $4,488! We are halfway through the Matching Campaign and are very close to reaching our goal. There is still plenty of time to donate by purchasing a gift for your classroom through the Amazon wish lists or by cash or check. The children love receiving new books and materials to work with!
In a celebration of your dedication and support of our program, we would like to have a CCC Spirit Day next week. Please wear your CCC shirts, adults and children, next Thursday, December 17th to show your CCC pride!
This year the focus of our work is on the “T” in STEM: Technology.
Among the new materials brought in for the year are new microscopes! Their capabilities vary, from 3D technology to digital capabilities with viewing screens, making the images more accessible to the children and the added feature of taking a picture to capture their discoveries. We are very excited to try them out and share our discoveries with you!
Thank you for all your donations that make fantastic learning experiences possible!
The CCC Fundraising Committee and the CCC Admin Team.
