Builder’s Club/After Care

The Builder’s Club and After Care groups worked together to help beautify CA’s campus.  The beautification/flower planting project was inspired by the book “Miss Rumphius”, written by Barbara Cooney, they are reading in after care.  It tells of a woman who gave back to her community through sharing the beauty of flowers & plants.  Builder’s Club members not only helped by cleaning our campus but by being positive role models for the younger children to inspire them to give back to their community as well. Phase 2 of this project will begin this week as the children plant flowers!  Stay tuned!

Parking

A reminder that all spots to the left of the grassy median (with the fountain) are reserved faculty parking spots.  The spots directly in front of school are also reserved administration spots.  The first 3 spaces closest to the school are reserved for visitors to our campus.  Parents are encouraged to park in the spaces along side the hill leading up from the Batson (Extended Care) Building.  Parents should not park on Anderson Drive or in front of school during drop-off or pick-up.  Students should be ready to exit the vehicle prior to pulling up to the front of school during drop-off. This will enable us to keep the flow of traffic going.  If your child is not ready to exit the vehicle, please pull into one of the above mentioned parking spaces.  Thank you.
