Dear CCA Families,
This new normal is starting to not really feel normal at all. My staff and I miss your children. We miss their hugs and smiles. Most importantly we long for the “teachable moments” that arise daily during a traditional classroom setting. Sometimes the best things that happen in a classroom are unplanned- the “ah ha” moments.
Our top priority continues to be to provide the best virtual learning experience for each student. We are blessed at CCA to have such devoted teachers who have gone above and beyond to do all they can to ensure their students continue to learn. I am grateful for their commitment to embrace this challenge and stretch themselves to learn more than they ever imagined possible.
CCA’s Board and I are focused on making the best decisions for the health of our students, staff and community. With the uncertainties our country continues to face we have made the decision to continue with virtual learning through the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year. Our last day of school will be May 15 th, 2020. We will waive administering standardized testing with the IOWA and there will be no final exams.
We are sensitive to the fact that this situation has been especially hard for our seniors. Information about our graduation ceremony for the Class of 2020 will follow as more unfolds. Please be on the look out for updates.
The first two weeks of virtual learning will soon be coming to an end. I am proud so very proud of my Eagles! Except for a few miner glitches everyone has begun to adapt to this new way of learning. Obviously we all would prefer going to school each day but in times like this it is so important that we all come together and do what needs to be done to succeed with virtual learning.
Each of you continue to be in my prayers. Prayers for safety, health, and provisions. I am thankful for God’s Word that continues to give me strength to keep moving forward. My hope is each of you will to cling to His Promises!
2 Timothy 1:7 “God has not given us a spirit of fear but of power and of love and of a sound mind.”
