Volunteer help needed!

As most people know, volunteers are crucial to the operation at CLA.  There are currently two areas where this volunteer help is most evident - the lunch room and the office.  We have many dedicated volunteers, but currently have a couple of specific needs:

  • Kitchen volunteer needed for Fridays - if you or someone you know would be able to help in this area, please contact Barb Lawson - blawson@clacademy.org.  Or call the school office 449-3346.

  • Office volunteer needed for Mondays - these could be full days or half days.  Lori Horning lhorning@clacademy.org is the contact for this, or call teh school office 449-3346.

  • Substitutes for volunteers are also important.  Those who are unable to commit to a regular weekly spot could be available to fill in.  Contact Mrs. Lawson or Mrs. Horning to become a sub!

Celebrating Christ’s birth together… another reason why I love our school!

It is with a grateful heart that I say “THANK YOU” to our students and teachers for the wonderful celebration of Christmas that we shared together last night.  As I sat and watched students share music and drama, then joined together with the CLA community singing “O Come All Ye Faithful,” I was filled with joy. I considered how different many schools “Holiday Programs” are when the focus cannot be on Jesus Christ, and was thankful that our celebration was in worship to our Lord.  This is one of multiple times each year that I am eternally thankful for the possibility of a school whose mission is to work side-by-side with families and the church to see Christian growth in our students. Praise the Lord!

In Christ,        

Mr. Horning
