Walk 2021 Raises Over $100,000

Thank you to our students and their families for helping us surpass our Walk 2021 goal, raising a total of $101,313.

On Friday, Nov. 19, 2021, CCHS students, faculty and staff came together to walk a 1.8 mile loop around the City of Lawrence to successfully complete this year's walkathon.

After the Walk, students enjoyed snacks, and names were selected to win a variety of raffle prizes.

Special thanks to the CCHS Parents Guild for all of their hard work!

Every year level made their goal, earning the day before Thanksgiving off, as well as an additional Walk holiday that will be announced.

The money raised is used to help pay for initiatives that are not covered by tuition, helping to stretch the operating budget and keep tuition down while enhancing the educational experience of students.
