Thank you for honoring that commitment and being role models of integrity and follow-through for our children!  Please save the date Thursday, March 1, 2018 for a special night of appreciation - more details to follow in February.

 

We would also like to celebrate our students who have already documented 15 or more community service hours.  Great work representing CCAA and helping out local organizations!

Please bring your family and friends to help out during any of those hours! This would count as parent involvement hours for parents who work AND student community service hours for students who help!

Common Vision is the company that helped us start the orchards several years ago and we need more help to keep the orchards going or the district may remove them. Last year they replaced many of our trees, put down weed block, and updated the drip systems. Let's show them that we care about our orchards and appreciate having their expertise by providing several hands to make the work lighter for all!

Parent participation is very important to the success of our school. One way to get involved is to serve on our School Site or Charter Executive Council. Both committees meet once a month in the evening at 4:45 pm on the second Tuesday of each month.

The purpose of these committees is to monitor the needs and celebrate the successes of many aspects of our school functions. These committees are made up of staff, students and parents.

 We have openings for parent members on both committees. If you are interested you can go to our school Website. There is a link to committee information. Nomination forms are also available in our school offices.  Nomination forms are due by 3:30pm on Friday, August 18.

Want to earn volunteer hours for talking about your job?  CCAA Walerga will be having a Career Day on April 6th from 9:00-11:00 for junior high and high school students.

We are in the planning stage and are looking for guest speakers to present to 3 different groups of students for about 30 minutes each, talking about your career with 10 minutes for Q&A.  Topics could include how you got into it that field, education or training needed, etc. Ideally, we would love to have a variety of professions included: Arts, IT, Healthcare, Service, Sports, really anything to inspire our students to start thinking about their future. If this is something you would be interested in or know someone that would be willing to donate a couple hours of their time to share information about their job or profession, please contact Ms. Hanson
