CCSPD was featured in ABC57’s Beyond the Badge series! https://www.abc57.com/news/beyond-the-badge-concord-community-school-s-in-house-police-department Officer John Riddle described Concord as a close-knit community. “I think the students connect with us and it's just been a great opportunity and a great experience,” Riddle said. “If you show them who you are and you’re just a normal person, you know, I’ve mended some of those fences the short time I’ve been here with some of those kids that had bad experiences with police and that makes it all worthwhile.” Thank you, Concord Community Schools PD for everything you do to make Concord schools a safe place for all! #ConcordPride

Purchase a replacement stylus, case, or charging cord for your child’s Chromebook for just $10 each! Items can be purchased at your child’s school and cash payments can be made to the school treasurer. Please send exact change if possible! The cost of these replacement products typically ranges from $27 to $38, so we encourage you to take advantage of this opportunity. Reduced prices will remain while supplies last. We received grant funding to make this sale possible and in an effort to spread this opportunity to as many students as possible, families may purchase only one of each item.

A total of $51,270 was raised during this year’s Make-A-Wish campaign at Concord Junior High – the most money ever raised during the biennial campaign! CJHS has been raising funds to grant wishes biennially since 1995. Proceeds from this year’s fundraiser will benefit two local students who were identified as recipients through the Make-A-Wish Foundation – Jack, 11, and Reed, 14. Jack’s wish is to travel to California where he would like to visit an LA car experience to see cars of all types and visit Randy’s Donuts. Reed’s wish is to be a train engineer, and specifically to sound the train horn. The 2022 contributions bring the total raised to $481,514.10. Outstanding work to all involved! #ConcordPride
