    Bible Verse: Quietness and confidence shall be your strength.  Isaiah 30:15

    Welcome back!  We hope you had a restful Christmas break and are looking forward to a new year. 

    January 11-12 our school will be engaging in our five-year accreditation review process.  This is a chance for the Dept of Education to review our school standards and academic outcomes.  The review process occurs every five years and includes our staff, parents, and students.  Most of the process will take place on Monday, January 11 and will be done remotely through Zoom meetings with staff.  Your child’s academic schedule may be adjusted slightly that day to allow for our elementary staff – who are on the accreditation committee – to participate in these Zoom meetings with the review team.  The results of the review team will be shared with the CCA community when they are completed.  Thank you for your help in this process! 

    THE SELFISH LADYBUG PLAY: Students K-6th grade can participate in this children’s theatre the week of January 25-30.  Please see the permission slip being sent home Monday for details.

    KEY DATES TO WATCH FOR JANUARY:

    • January 4: School resumes
    • January 8: Yearbook order forms due; permission slips due for “The Selfish Ladybug”
    • January 11-12: School-wide accreditation review process

    • January 25-29: Off-Week; Drama Camp “The Selfish Ladybug”

    SNOW CLOTHES: It’s that time!  Kids need ALL FIVE THINGS to go outside.  All five things means: winter coat that zips, hood/hat, snow pants, snow boots, gloves; kids who do not bring their snow things will have to sit in the preschool during recess (which is not is much fun as playing outside).  Kids can also prepare to bring sleds for recess.  All sleds need their name in permanent marker in BIG LETTERS.

    FOOD POLICY: Please note the following change regarding food policies: If your child will be at school during breakfast or lunch, please DO NOT send the following food/drink items: hot chocolates, Gatorade, soda, any colored drinks, pizza lunchables, cinnamon roll lunchables.  We have had bad experiences with these items in the past; as a result, they are no longer allowed in the building.
