We can order so many things on Amazon now: from gifts to groceries to furniture to clothes! All you have to do to donate to the 8th grade class is make sure you log in to our Amazon Smile account before you shop. It's that easy! Amazon donates 0.5% of the price of your eligible AmazonSmile purchases to us. AmazonSmile is the same Amazon you know. Same products, same prices, same service. 


  • We will have school the week after Thanksgiving. School will resume on Monday, November 30.
  • Project Spark Studio is participating in North State Giving Tuesday. Their goal is to raise $5,000. Click on the North State Giving Tuesday logo to the right to donate on Tuesday, December 1 from 6 am to 8 pm. Thank you for your support!
  • Shasta County has moved into the purple tier. The tier status does not affect schools so we will continue our normal schedule. Thank you to all our parents, students, and staff who are working so diligently to follow all our COVID safety guidelines.
  • For the remainder of the 2020-2021 school year, U.S. fifth graders can bring their families to national parks, wildlife refuges and other Department of the Interior managed public lands and waters for free! See the video below for more information. 




About Our School

About Us

Cottonwood Creek Charter School is located in the historic town of Cottonwood in northern California. We are a kindergarten through 8th grade public school sponsored by the Cottonwood Union School District  and offer a quality, tuition-free education. Our family-friendly school schedules are independent study based and we offer two educational options: traditional classroom site classes and homeschool. Our site based classes are small (maximum of 24 students per class) to optimize learning and teacher/student interaction. We have a wide variety of after-school electives such as music, art, sports, science, ceramics, sewing, drama, technology and study hall to enrich learning. Our goal is to work with families to provide the best educational environment for every child.
