    We are quickly approaching the end of another school year. These next weeks will be filled with a flurry of activities and events.

Here’s the schedule for those feedback sessions, which begin at 6 p.m.:
     
    • Tuesday, May 3 at Concord High School
    • Tuesday, May 10 at West Cabarrus High School

    We also are just a few weeks away from the end-of-year testing season and to celebrating our CCS colleagues who will retire from the district at a special event on May 11th and the Class of 2022 during graduation ceremonies on May 14th for our early colleges and on June 9th, 10th, and 11th for our traditional high schools. 
     
    This month, we also will celebrate National School Nurse Day on May 11th. Cabarrus County Schools is grateful for our long-standing partnership with Cabarrus Health Alliance and for each of our school nurses. Their value to our school system has been immeasurable during the pandemic.
