We’re Celebrating CCCS’ 40th Anniversary on this Saturday (April 30)
The online sign-up for the celebrating gala was a great success and overwhelmed. Due to the limited capacity of the venues, we can no longer accept any more request.
a) If you didn’t sign up for the gala, you need to pick up your students prior to 1:30PM at your student’s classroom.
b) All students, except those being picked up by their parents by 1:30PM, will be escorted by their teachers to the gala venue (Performing Arts Center).
c) Once the students entered into the PAC, they will stay with the class inside the theater until the performance is over at around 4:45PM.
d) Students will then be available for parents to pick them up at the front door of the PAC.
e) If you have signed up for the gala participation, you will receive a separate email regarding the guides of the event.
Happy 40th Birthday to CCCS!

Help Distribute School’s Flyers (Click here for the Summer Flyer)
Please help post, distribute, or otherwise disseminate school flyers to your local community. Typical locations for posting are: local libraries, shopping markets, Starbucks, Peet’s Coffee, Chinese and local restaurants, etc. Certainly, by disseminating the flyers to your friends, colleagues, and neighbors would be another effective way to marketing our school programs. Thank you very much for your help and support!
Instructions for Mac Users to be able to read a PC (Win) CD in Mac machine
A. Check the system requirements for the PC disc that you want to use. This information is found on the packaging for that program. If you no longer have the packaging, go to the software manufacturer's website to get the requirements. It may require a certain processor speed, graphics card or a certain amount of RAM. It will also require a certain operating system. Some discs can be used on both PCs and Macs, while some cannot.
B. Check that your Mac has those system requirements. You can do that by clicking the Apple, then "About This Mac" and "More Info."
C. Install Windows on your Mac if the system requirements will work but a Windows operating system is needed. There are a few ways to do this. New Macs come with Mac OS X 10.5, which includes Boot Camp. Boot Camp allows you to install Windows Vista or Windows XY with Service Pack 2 on your new Mac (see Resources). After installation, Windows will run a separate partition on your hard drive.
D. Install a software package like VMWare Fusion or Parallels Desktop if you have an older Mac that does not have Boot Camp (see Resources). These applications give you the flexibility to run both Mac OS X and Windows at the same time without rebooting.
E. Install virus protection on the Mac if you choose to install Windows. Norton and Intego both make dual virus protection software that covers the Mac and Windows operating systems at the same time.
