Reminders about how we handle cold and weather at CLA:
- Outdoor Recess - we have outdoor recess as often as possible, but will keep students inside if wind chill is too cold. Please DO send students with hats, coats, gloves relative to the projected temperature for the day.
- Snow play at Recess - students will only be allowed to play in the snow if they have snow boots and gloves (of course, jackets and hoods/hats, too). We have outdoor hard surfaces free of snow, so all students do go outside, but they are restricted if they do not have snow gear.
- WEATHER CLOSINGS OR DELAYS - We will close school only if the majority of the districts where our students reside are also closed. In general, that means Olympia, Tremont, Delavan and/or DeeMack. If CLA is open, but your local district is closed, we ask you to make a safe decision about coming to school.
- CHRISTIAN LIFE ACADEMY CLOSING ANNOUNCMENTS are online at centralillinoisproud.com and displayed on WMBD/WYZZ TV. We also post on the CLA facebook page and send out a text to all who are a part of the REMIND app. In general, an announcement will be made by 7 am.

News from the Music Department . . . Musical!
Mark Thursday, March 22 on your calendars! CLA's students will be performing the musical Danny and the Shacks! for our annual Easter program. Danny and the Shacks embark on a thrill-ride of experiences as they encounter King Neb, his golden statue, some crazy Babylonians, the fiery furnace, and the infamous lions' den. Through it all, the powerful truth of God's Word and the importance of being obedient and faithful to His teaching comes through loud and clear!
- This year, students with non-character roles are asked to wear school-appropriate workout gear to the program! We are also looking for the following props:
- water bottles
- a toy (or real!) saxophone
- We are also looking for individuals to help with the construction of some barbells, weights, and kettlebells, created out of foam/cardboard, and to create a mini obstacle course! If you are interested in helping out, please contact Mrs. Stribling as soon as possible.
- Demo copies of Danny and the Shacks! are available to purchase for $6 each. You can order and download them straight from the Word Music website or have your child bring $6 into Mrs. Stribling and she will download them onto a cd for you.
Reminders from STUDENT COUNCIL!
- Please make sure that all K-10 students return the slip about the MYSTERY MEAL on Thursday, February 15th! Student council is treating all students to a FREE meal that day, but wants to have all students RETURN THE PERMISSION SLIP which explains the foods being served!
- On FRIDAY, MONDAY and TUESDAY, students can purchase SMALENTINES - scented pencils - to give to friends for Valentine’s Day. They cost $1 per pencil and proceeds will benefit Student Council activities. No reservations for pencils will be accepted without payment, so bring $$!
From the Principal's Desk . . .
The message of “Danny and The Shacks” reminds me that we are all called to stand for Christ in all that we do… And being a fan of the Philadelphia Eagles, I was so impressed to see many of their players standing for Christ in this recent Super Bowl run. What a platform for them to use for the glory of the Lord! May we all be so courageous in our individual platforms - to share Jesus and make disciples!
