K-2nd Grade with Ms. Hoque and Mrs. Waldon

Our Winter Program is approaching and we have begun practicing our songs during transitions. We will be sending home lyrics in Thursday folders next week so students are able to practice at home as well. Parent teacher conferences are coming up. We will send out a link for sign-ups next week so make sure to check your emails. In your child’s Thursday folder this week you should have also received an optional weekly reading log for any at-home reading your child does. They will receive a reward each time they fill up their reading log. Lastly, our class will be begin show and tell after Thanksgiving break so keep your eyes peeled for a calendar schedule that shows when your student will be sharing!

3-5th Grade with Mrs. Schnur and Mrs. Shelton

In the Thursday folders this week, students were given packets for extra optional work. Anyone who completes the packet and brings it back the first week of December will get a special treat from us. These packets are NOT required to be completed but continued practice over the break is always encouraged.

Our upcoming Winter Program will take place December 12th. Students were sent home lyric packets to practice their songs at home. It's been fun listening to them sing in the learning center. We are very excited to have them perform for families in just a couple of weeks.

Leaving Campus - Please talk to your student

Crater Lake Charter Academy is an established Focused Virtual School that provides online learning with the support of drop-in Learning Centers. As our Learning Centers offer drop-in support, we do not require students to remain on campus or attend specific hours. Students are required to check-in and check-out using their school ID while on the Crater Lake Charter Academy premises. Crater Lake Charter Academy takes all responsibility of student safety while students are on the campus of CLCA, however, once a student leaves campus they are no longer the responsibility of Crater Lake Charter Academy. We strongly encourage all CLCA families to talk to their student about their expectations on accessing and leaving the CLCA campus. We do not recommend any student walking or riding a bike on Nick Young Rd.

8-12th Grade - Qrt. 2 Ends January 23rd

With the introduction of our two Focus Study times our students increased their average activity completion from 5, 407 to 7,788! That is over 2,000 more activities done last week than in previous weeks. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!
