Christ Child Academy Newsletter

August 2018

Welcome to the 2018-2019 School Year!

Welcome back to the 2018-2019 school year at Christ Child Academy. We are excited to be partnering with you for your child's faith and educational development. The school is ready to go and the teachers are excited for the new year to begin.

Parent Orientation

We look forward to seeing you at our upcoming Parent Orientation on Wednesday, August 29. There will be a “Come & Go” from 4:00 - 6:00 pm for all parents and students (3K - 8) to meet your classroom teacher, tour the school, drop off school supplies and check in at the school office with any questions or requests you may have. If you will be enrolling your child in the Extended Day Program, forms may be picked up in the office. Once you finish visiting the classrooms, make sure you attend the free Back to School Cookout in the courtyard for supper. Enjoy some great food while catching up with friends. The "Balloon Lady" will also be there to make your favorite animal or toy. Make sure you get some free ice cream too!

PLAYGROUND IMPROVEMENTS

Thanks to the generous donations from Winter Extravaganza back in March, we were able to upgrade our playground by adding soccer goals, a Gaga pit, and also a volleyball court. New playground balls, volleyballs, footballs, and tether balls have been purchased for all the classrooms and middle school.

SAFETY GRANT UPDATE

In July, CCA was awarded a safety grant through the DOJ and the State of Wisconsin. With this grant, we were able to install window safety film on all the exterior doors. This 3M film is 6mm thick and prevents shattering of the window. A key fob security system was also installed on five exterior school doors. A 2nd round of safety grants were announced in July and the deadline for the application is August 31st. Look for additional measures to be taken for the

safety of everyone at CCA.
