From the Principal’s Desk . . .

CLA Family, it’s important that you know how vital philanthropy and fundraising is for Christian Life Academy. Did you know that the tuition paid by families covers only 60-65% of the costs associated with operating our school? I bring this to your attention because we are entering a vital time for raising funds for the school. Life Days, our signature event, is just around the corner. It’s easy to just push it aside and say “someone else will do it” when asked to donate, or volunteer, or attend this event. (Hi! - If you have read this far through Lion Tales, I want to say “thanks!” So, the first person to text me the words “Life Days” to 309-267-8781 wins a candy bar -  Mr. Horning) Please, I encourage you, jump in with both feet into this event, and into every part of the CLA Community!  In the past, Life Days (donations, auction, activities) has raised over 10% of our budget in most years. That means about $50,000 for this year’s budget. To keep CLA thriving and growing, we need EVERYONE to take part in LIFE DAYS… So I ask you…  please  get involved!

In Christ,       

Mr. Horning
