Share a favorite recipe! CLA Cookbook Update coming

CLA published a cookbook in 2010 (wow, nearly a decade ago). An update of this CLA Cookbook is coming! If you were not here when the cookbooks were published, and would like to submit a recipe or two, please email them to Mrs. Hasty - before October 1st.  Questions, check with Mrs. Hasty!

Text or Phone call? Good Question!

To get a quick message to the school, many times a text message to a staff person seems the easiest.  A phone call to the school office, on the other hand, makes sure the message goes directly to the person that needs to know that information.  When it comes to “should I text or call?” we encourage a call to the school office. The staff person to whom a text is sent may not be in a good position to get the message where it needs to go.  Our volunteers in the school office can get the message where it needs to go.

**For messages that need to get to the school regarding late arrival, appointments, pickup, after school care, etc., we do request that you call the school office.  Please call 309-449-3346 for the school office! Our volunteer secretary is ready to receive your call.


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:

From the Principal's Desk

I was challenged at a recent Bible Study to pray Luke 10:2… “...Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into His harvest field.”  As I begin to pray earnestly for this, I encourage you, CLA families, to do the same. We are a part of the workers, but are we truly going out? Let’s GO!  We want all to know the saving grace of Jesus. Pray that we are sent, and that we respond to the sending.  

In Christ,      

Mr. Horning
