Director's Notes

This week, Erica has arranged for us to learn self-defense from Norbert's karate instructor during lunch. Please check the email she sent out to us recently with the permission slips.

Tutors, please come a few minutes early each week for prayer at 8:45 am. You are welcome to work on your boards before and after prayer. Also, please be in prayer over how you can serve our CC Community if you feel led to set up field trips, Christmas shoeboxes, parties or get-togethers, etc.

Thank you all for your grace, patience and understanding! I couldn't do this homeschool thing without you and I am learning so much from you all. You are all doing a fantastic job! With God's grace I hope that I can serve you all well this year.
