Principal's Corner

Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it. Proverbs 22:6

Dear Parents,

 

Can you feel it? The end of the school year is near! We are moving into the home stretch – only 16 days left before our closing chapel and assembly on June 13.

 

These days can be difficult for students as they glimpse the light at the end of the tunnel. They know summer vacation is near, but their last school days are important. Here are some ideas for keeping your students on track to finish the year strong.

 

* Provide healthy snacks and lunches to keep students fueled throughout their day.

 

* Encourage your children to go outside after school and on the weekends. Many kids prefer to stay inside and game or watch TV, but large motor activity engages the body and brain in healthier ways!

 

* Keep bedtimes the same. Lock devices away so they cannot be accessed. End the day with Jesus by praying together.

 

* Create a countdown calendar to mark off the days until school is officially out.

 

* Build in incentives for completing school work on time.

 

* Create home chores for your children and praise them for their jobs well done. Keep the routines going as you move into the summer.

 

* Keep your children connected to school skills while they are on break. Studies show that students can lose as much as three full months of reading and math skills without continued practice. If they don’t use it, they lose it!

 

Cindy Bowers, Libby Glasser, and I will be on campus during summer break. Call us if you have any questions. We are always happy to speak with you!

 

Enjoy your week,

10 Ways to Survive the ZOMBIE Apocalypse

It’s the end of the world and hordes of rampaging zombies are about to kill you. What do you do? Try your hand at kung fu against the undead? Attempt to reason with creatures that would rather eat brains than use them? Turn to this handy and hilarious guide to survive the apocalyse!


The high school drama department and directors Madelyn H. and Stephen W. chose this play for its flexibility and hilarity. Our actors certainly had a great time as they performed last Friday and Saturday evenings on our stage downstairs.

Please join our middle school drama class for the production of “The Legend of Sammy’s Swamp,” a mystery by Eddie McPherson, the same playwright behind our Blue Ribbon performance at L.E.S.T. Directed by 6th grade teacher Mrs. Cofield, our drama students will perform on Thursday, May 23, at 2 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. in the CCA gym. You’ll be humming ’Scooby Dooby Doo…’ when you see this spooky mystery comedy, because it feels just like an adventure from the favorite cartoon detective show!

Alumnus Mitch Pelissier has excellent basketball training sessions available in our own CCA gym this summer! Scan the QR code above to learn more.
