Words of Wisdom
"Aerodynamically, the bumble bee shouldn’t be able to fly, but the bumble bee doesn’t know it so it goes on flying anyway." ~Mary Kay Ash
Have you ever witnessed someone accomplishing what the world said he or she could not, like a bumble bee taking flight? With encouragement, people can take flight despite the challenges they face.
In the middle of the word encouragement stands the word courage. When we encourage others, we literally pour courage into them, prompting some heartfelt action toward their fuller potential, helping them fly even when the odds are stacked against them. To encourage means to hearten, embolden, inspire, advocate, and enliven. Encouragement is a gift we give others, an act of generosity. And when we encourage them, we ourselves are heartened.
Ethical Principle of the Month
highlights from last week at CPA
CPA students have been bonding with friends during recess.
8th graders planned for group survival in a Zombie Apocalypse!
High school health students practiced effective communication!
CPA first grade students were creative during class!
6th grade students learned about the pillars of health.
HS Science students used straws to build a structure.
The 2022-2023 athletics season is underway. Any students who are still interested in joining the soccer team can register online on the CPA website. Students must be registered before they can join practice.
Please note that there are ongoing scams from companies that claim to stream athletic events online, then ask for your credit card information to access it. CPA does not stream our games online, and you should not give your credit card information to these scam companies.
