Annual Giving Fund

Please donate to the Canton Country Day School's 2017-2018 Annual Giving Campaign!

What is the Annual Giving Campaign?
The Annual Giving Campaign is made up of yearly gifts from parents, faculty and staff, the Board of Trustees, grandparents, alumni, and friends of the school. Each year is a separate drive designed to meet the operating needs of the current year. No donation is too small.

Bulb Planting Volunteers Needed!

On Saturday, November 11, 2017, from 1 - 3 p.m., CCDS will have a fall bulb planting in front of the school. Hot chocolate will be provided. Please bring your bulb diggers or hand trowels if you have any. If you would like to help, please RSVP by email to Mike Brown .

Hot Lunch Program

The "December Hot Lunch Menu" will be available to order November 15th. Deadline to order is November 29, 2017 .

We have added to the December menu Beefatoni , (ground beef with rigatoni noodles, red sauce or plain). This menu option will include french bread, fresh fruit, fresh vegetable, and a light dessert.

  • Please keep in mind when ordering and selecting your menu items for the month you must complete the ordering process.

  • Be sure that you have added enough "CREDITS" to cover the cost of your menu choices..

  • Be sure to "CHECK OUT" the order and "PAY INVOICE" and finally click on "PROCEED". Only when you receive an invoice marked as "PAID" will the order be confirmed.

  • Not completing the process will result in an "UNCONFIRMED ORDER". All unconfirmed orders that pass the ordering DEADLINE DATE OF NOV. 29th, will not process, which will result in your child not receiving the anticipated lunch item.

The online Hot Lunch Program is only for Kindergarten through 8th grade. For those of you that have not signed up for "Hot Lunch", you can do so at

Our CCDS Middle School ran a school wide food drive for the Stark County Hunger Task Force, which they called the “Hunger Canvention”.

They collected items from November 6-10. This was part of a county-wide food drive with a goal of providing food for holiday meals for the 25,000 people who are served by their pantries each month. They are hoping that the schools of this community can join together and gather food for their 31 pantries. The intent of this service project is to help students see that they can make a difference in other people's lives.

A member of the Hunger Task Force will be coming to CCDS on Monday, November 13th to collect the donations. Thank you for your support!

All of us at CCDS would like to extend our thanks and gratitude to Mr. and Mrs. Matt Williams for their generous donation of a brand new kitchen convection oven.

We also want to thank Mr. Mike Abbott of Abbott Electric, Inc., and his staff, for installing the oven.
