Principal's Corner

Let each of you look not only to his own interests but also to the interests of others. Philippians 2:4

Dear Families,


With the pandemic mostly behind us, we rejoice that we are able to enjoy life without COVID restrictions. I love being able to see our children’s faces and smiles. That being said, we still face some significant health challenges.


RSV (Respiratory Syncytial Virus) has become prevalent in our very young and older populations. We have some flu making the rounds at school and in the community, and some cases of COVID are still popping up.


Though state mandates have been lifted, CCA still follows basic recommendations from the Tacoma-Pierce County Health Department. We ask that you read the following guidelines carefully and ask for your cooperation as we try to keep our students and staff as healthy as possible.


  • Please keep students home when they develop signs of illness (runny nose, cough, congestion, sore throat, headache, body aches, fever).


  • When ill, students should test for COVID and flu. If negative, they should not return to school until fever has been gone (without fever reducers) for 24 hours. If positive for COVID, they need to stay home for 5 days and mask for 5 days upon return to school, even if no symptoms are present.


  • Students should not come to school if they feel ill, even if no fever is present.


  • Once students return, they must mask if a cough or runny nose is present. If they cannot mask, they should wait until symptoms have mostly resolved before returning to school.


CCA will continue to encourage frequent washing and sanitizing in all classrooms.


Thank you for partnering with us!


In Christ,


Sherrie Gibelyou



Host Family Needed for CCA’s International Student Coming Second Semester

Truong is a 15-year-old boy from Vietnam. He enjoys playing football and badminton in his spare time. He describes himself as a cheerful, friendly, and hardworking person. His parents describe him as friendly and sociable. His favorite colors are blue, green, and gray. He says that he can adapt easily to new environments and that he is ready to learn about new things and cultures. He loves food, both Vietnamese and foreign food. He dreams of becoming an engineer in the future. He is excited to come to the United States to study, as he believes that the education here is excellent!


Truong says, “I wish to stay with a host family that is helpful, easy-going, friendly, and kind. They can sympathize with my embarrassment when I first come to a new country.”


ABC Education Group offers a monthly stipend of $900/month.

Each year, Prince of Peace Lutheran Church and First Baptist Church of Lakewood work together to provide holiday food baskets to families in our area.

We have designated our offerings during the months of November and December to support the Loaves and Fishes program. Because of the sponsors supporting the program this year, each basket costs about $25 to put together. So far, we have money for 25 baskets!


If you are able, please consider giving to this ministry through the chapel offerings we donate each week. We appreciate the servant hearts of all our students and families!



Thanks for your generous support of the Hygemas during this time of healing for Wayne.


We still have openings on November 29 and 30 this month.
