CC Week 17

Hello families!

It's that time of year again! Time to start thinking about registration for next year. It sorta seems impossible doesn't it? Our community is likely to be full (48 students) next year. In the past, it really hasn't mattered when you turned in your registration forms and registration fees, but this year, in order to hold your children's spots for next year, you must have those turned in to me by the end of the day on Wednesday, March 2nd. I will start accepting registrations from new families on March 3rd.

Registration forms can be printed from this link. Just a reminder: registration fees are non-refundable.

This year, I am going to offer an installment plan, because I know how difficult it can be to come up with the total amount all at once in the summer. Once you register, I will give you a monthly payment plan you may use if you choose. The due date for completed tuition and fee payments is July 20th.

Have a great weekend!

This Week:

Family Presentation: Ortega

Clean Up: Thomas and Gatlin Families

This week, during our science time, we'll be talking about erosion

Some of the most beautiful things come from years of wearing away. Just look at the beautiful Grand Canyon and the rainbow bridge. They have been wearing away for years and it is so beautiful.

Sometimes things in our life may feel like they are wearing us away or tearing us down. However, there is always a plan and sometimes some of the most beautiful moments come from the trials in our life.

Foundations to Challenge

This week, your students will study the great Renaissance artist Michelangelo. They will revisit him again in Cycle 2 Foundations memory work. Then, in Challenge II, students will look at the Renaissance in depth during their Western Cultural History seminar. They will study specific works of Michelangelo and learn about his influence on artists who came after him. Learning about the art and music of the Western world is an important part of a classical education. If we want students to truly know and love truth, goodness, and beauty, we must present them with objects of beauty. Michelangelo’s art sets a standard of beauty and illuminates stories from Scripture.
