Life Days 2019 will be held Friday, November 1 and Saturday, November 2.  We ask ALL CLA families to participate in our Largest Event each year!!!

Reminder... Please make sure students have TENNIS SHOES for Physical Education! PE schedules vary by grade level, but are on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.  Students may choose to leave a pair at school (in locker/cubby).


Specifically for Christian Life Academy families, we have a closed facebook group called “Christian Life Academy Lions’ Den.” We encourage all of our parents who have a facebook profile to join! This is where we will be posting the weekly Lion Tales as well as information that is helpful for our school family. You can search for the group or go to the following web address:

Well done, everyone, on the first two weeks of school!

We are off to a great start with procedures such as lunch money, tuition payments, drop off and pick up of students, and so many other “beginning of school year” items that students, parents and staff are learning together!  If you have any questions about procedures, please don’t hesitate to ask!

From the Principal's Desk

As you have read in previous Lion Tales, our theme to start off the year is about how God is calling us and we are being “sent” to serve the Lord, right here where we are!  This week’s focus is knowing that God has a plan for us, and Jeremiah 29 tells us that He has a great plan! I was blessed this week in conversations with our teachers - a group who meets before school for prayer. We usually share a verse or a devotional that is meaningful to us.  Romans 12:12 reminds us to be “joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.” For us, that’s the plan God has for right here, right now! How great to share and live that plan with one another.  

In Christ,      

Mr. Horning
