  • Life Days 2017 will be held Friday, October 12 and Saturday, October 13. We ask ALL CLA families to participate in our Largest Event each year!!!

Reminders . . .

Please make sure students have TENNIS SHOES for Physical Education! PE schedules vary by grade level.  Students may choose to leave a pair at school (in locker/cubby).

Drop-off and Pick-up . . .

NOTE:  Please be sure to enter on the SOUTH drive (closest to the medical complex doctor offices) when you come for drop-off and pick-up each day. Follow the curve, pull up as far as you are able (not past the 4-square painted on the drive).  Be safe and drive slowly when in the school lot and drive way!  PLEASE DO NOT GET OUT OF YOUR CAR AND COME INTO THE SCHOOL WHILE IN THE DROP-OFF LINE…. if you need to come in the building, please park in a marked space.

At Pick-up time, please make sure you have your yellow “authorized” car sign visible for staff to identify your car so that your children can be safely picked up!  Two new signs for you to fill out were sent home last week.  PLEASE DO NOT GET OUT OF YOUR CAR AND WALK UP TO THE DOORS…. This slows down the line!  Thanks!

Student/Parent Handbooks and Health documents for students . . .

If you did not get one at back-to-school night or on the first day of school, please check with the school office.  Please read the handbook, sign and return the last page.

If your child is due for immunizations, dental, eye, or physical exams, please make sure the documents are turned in to the school office by the end of August.  If you have appointments scheduled after August 31, please send a note to the school office letting Mrs. Horning know of this appointment.

Email reminders will be sent to those who have not taken care of handbook and health documents…

Volunteers needed - for regular weekly shifts . . .

We appreciate parents helping in many ways.  Here are several specifics for this fall:

  • Office Volunteers have a regular ½ day or full day shift and are responsible for answering phones and doing miscellaneous tasks to assist Mr. Horning, Mrs. Horning, and the other staff.  A few regular shifts as well as fill-in/substitutes are needed.
  • Recess Monitors for various recess times are helpful to assist staff who operate these recesses.

If you are able to commit to a regular volunteer opportunity, please contact the office!!!

Before School Care Reminder . . .

We are glad to offer before school care to our families who are in need of this service.  Day care opens at 7:30 am.  It appears that we may have a large number of students needing this, so please remember this is specifically for those needing the service due to parent work responsibilities. We know it is fun to come and play before school starts, but we are only able to accommodate 20 or less students.   If you are able to use the regular 8:15-8:30 drop off time, please do so!

From the Principal's Desk . . .

One week under our belts!  My hope and prayer is that your family is getting into the routine of the school year once again.  Don’t forget in your routine to regularly thank God for the opportunity that we have to partner together in the education of our children.  What a blessing it is to be able to daily share Jesus with each one.  It’s a blessing that not all children and families have.  Thank you for allowing your children this opportunity!

In Christ,       

Mr. Horning
