Box Tops Contest Completed - Pizza and Popcorn rewards!

WOW! 4684 Box Tops were collected, which is a wonderful result for our October Box Tops contest. Great Job Students!  All students earned the Pizza and Popcorn party reward, which will be held on November 11 during the lunch hour.  Congratulations to the Blue team - grades 3, 4, 5 and 6, who will receive a special reward for being the first team to 1000 and bringing in the most Box Tops overall.  Hold on to your Box Tops… another contest coming later in the year!!

Volunteer needed at CLA!

We are blessed by many volunteers, and have two opportunities for you to help on a regular basis:

  1.  The school cafeteria is in need of a regular volunteer to help with serving lunch on Wednesdays. If you are able to help, please contact the school office and ask to talk with Mrs. Barb Lawson, Lunchroom Coordinator. 
  2. The school office is in need of a substitute-on-call for the occasional Fridays when our Friday office volunteer cannot be here. If you are able to help, please contact the school office and ask to talk with Lori Horning.

From the Principal's Desk . . .

As the weather changes, sports seasons change and we move from baseball season (congratulations Cubs fans!) to basketball season (Go CLA Lions!), it is a great reminder that The LORD does not change. He is the same yesterday, today, and forever. How wonderful to be able to trust in our unchanging Savior. My hope is that each of us trusts more day by day.

In Christ,

Mr. Hornin
