6:30 - 9:00 p.m.
CCLCS 8th graders only. The hope is every CCLCS 8th grader will attend. A light buffet, a DJ, and lots of fun! (Limos, dates, expensive designer prom dresses discouraged.) This is a dress-up affair: no t-shirts or jeans, please. Chaperones consist of school staff only. However, parents are invited for the first 10 mins to take photos (regardless of what your 8th grader tells you!) The dance is held at The Captains Golf Course, Freeman’s Way, Brewster. Tickets are $30 each, payable by check to ‘CCLCS’ or online below.
YOU CAN PAY FOR THE DINNER DANCE TICKET ON OUR SCHOOL STORE!

June 18 - 8th Grade Beach Day
A PARENT run event, the 8th Grade Beach Day is traditionally from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at a beach of your choosing. Students go directly to and from the beach and do not come to school that day. We'll hope for a beautiful day, but will still gather in sweatshirts even if it's cloudy and cool. Drizzle --yes, pouring rain ---no. This event requires many 8th grade parent volunteers to make it a success-for instance a beach permit will need to be procured, volunteers lined up etc.
June 18 - Early Dismissal Last Day of School!
6th and 7th will dismiss at 11:45 a.m., Lighthouse buses will run.
