Patriot Press Information

The High School Publication class will create and send out a weekly email every Friday, which contains the Patriot Press newsletter. This newsletter is a great information tool that gives parents reminders, calendar dates, field trip information, along with pictures throughout the week at CCA. This newsletter can also be found on our CCA Facebook and Twitter pages. If parents have any pictures of CCA activities or sporting events that they would like to share with the Publications class, please email pictures to stownsend@clintonacademy.org. The Publication class will also create the CCA Yearbook, so the more photos we can get, the better our yearbook will be! Pictured below is the 2021-22 High School Publication Class.

September 3rd Chapel

Joey Conway, youth pastor at First Baptist Church, spoke today at our first chapel of the 2021-22 school year. He talked about love, the first fruit of the spirit, and our CCA character trait for the month of September. He explained how God, produces fruit in us when we know Him and by knowing Him, He produces love in us so we can love others. The verse used in today’s chapel was Galatians 5:13-26, which talks about all the Fruits of the Spirit: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.

Box Tops for Education

The process used to collect Box Tops for Education has changed. Instead of cutting labels out, labels must be scanned and submitted online. The first step is to download the app, which is called, Box Tops for Education. Then, scan your receipt, and the app will automatically choose which items are eligible to earn money for schools. In order for the app to work properly the picture of the receipt has to show the retailer name or logo, date of purchase, transaction total, and product information. Next, submit the receipt within 14 days of purchase. If you would like to help CCA earn money for supplies by collecting box tops you may start scanning now. Details are in the video below.
