Christ Child Academy Newsletter

September 12, 2019

From the Desk of Mr. Ruedinger

We celebrated our first school Mass on Tuesday and it was wonderful to 100% of the students dressed in their Mass attire on the first day! Thank you to all the new families that attended the "New Parent Meeting" on Wednesday night. These meetings are designed to assist in the understanding of our school's policies and procedures to allow for a smooth transition into our school community.

The middle school hallway has been kept cleaner this year by having the students in grades 6-8 partner with us in keeping their back packs, books, and clothes off the floor. Hooks have been hung on each locker where the back packs are hung when not in use. Thank you to the students for taking ownership of their hallway.

Unfortunately, the CCA Volleyball Tournament scheduled for September 20 & 21 has been cancelled due to not enough teams participating.

We have added a new "Parenting in the 21st Century" section. This section will include professional resources that I have come across in my professional development that might assist parents as they raise children. Hopefully, these will come in handy for your family.

The busing on Wednesdays will be delayed. The bus will pick up students from CCA at 3:15 pm even though the early dismissal is at 2:20 pm. Students taking the bus will be supervised in the resource center. Please plan accordingly.

MAP (Measures of Academic Progress) testing for grades K - 8 will be held the week of September 23. MAP is a computerized adaptive test which helps teachers, parents, and administrators improve learning for all students and make informed decisions to promote a child’s academic growth. All students in grades K-8 will be tested to track their academic growth. Please do not schedule any appointments for your children during this time. It is important that the students are in attendance and well-rested, so they can do their best on the tests. Thank you for your cooperation.

Accreditation Self-Study Update

During this school year, the teachers and staff at CCA will be going through an accreditation self-study in preparation for the official accreditation visit during the Fall of 2020. This process involves the reflection and evaluation of all the policies and programs at Christ Child Academy and will provide a road map of goals to strive for during the next seven years. We look forward to your feedback during the year as an integral part of our school improvement.


Christ Child Academy Bingo is an important Fundraiser that raised over $10,000 last school year! We need EVERY SINGLE FAMILY to contribute to continue this success.

This school year we will run 8 regular Bingo Sessions and 1 SPECIAL HOLIDAY Bingo Session.

Each family will be responsible to work one regular bingo session, donate to one regular bingo session and participate in some way for the SPECIAL HOLIDAY Bingo Session.

Each grade will be assigned the session that they are to work and donate. You will then have the opportunity to choose the time slot or donation item of your choice. All slots must be filled by September 15th, 2019. If at that time, you have not signed up or have not volunteered in other areas, you might be assigned a slot for bingo. Remember that volunteers need to be 18 years or older and can be members of your family or friends.

CCA Bingo Sign Up

We are looking to have 100% of our CCA families volunteer at CCA this year!

Safeguarding All God's Family

If parents or grandparents plan to participate in field trips, work in the lunchroom, coach, or help out at school, you must attend a Safeguarding All God’s Family training through the Archdiocese of Milwaukee. You must register on-line at and indicate you are associated with Christ Child Academy. If you have not previously been trained, now is a great time to attend a session.
