Hello CBA Community!

What an amazing morning! It was so great to see our CBA community back in the building for morning drop off. Some of our students felt otherwise, and we had a few more tears than normal saying goodbye to moms and dads, but overall we think it was wonderful. Thank you for following our procedures and for your help in making this such a great success. We look forward to doing this again in the near future. Stay tuned!


Welcoming families into the building was a nice way to wrap up our Back-to-School Night events. We truly appreciate you taking the time to join in on the classroom presentations. Sharing our program with our families is one of our favorite things to do, and we hope that the excitement for the year was evident. Classroom teachers have sent out their recordings, if you were unable to attend.


This past week we were able to practice our Lock Down drill. This drill is intended to secure students in their classrooms in the event of a weather or local emergency. Overall, the teachers and students did a fantastic job. If you have any questions, please let us know.


Finally, we understand that the new uniform roll-out has brought some frustration to many of our families, and we apologize for that. We encourage you to continue to use the uniforms that you have from previous years, and if you are in short supply, please let us know and we can check the PAC used uniforms. We are still accepting donations of used uniforms.


Thanks so much and have a great weekend!
