NEXT WEEK  

UPDATE ON NEW BUILDING  

We were granted a second extension on our due diligence period that will end next Tuesday.  We appreciate your prayers and will send out an update next week!   

 

SENIOR COMMENCEMENT 

Please join us in celebrating our graduating class of 2024 on Saturday, May 11, at 10 am in the school auditorium.  You can join us in -person or online: https://www.discovercca.org/commencement  

 

CURRICULUM FOR 2024-25 SCHOOL YEAR 

The 2024-25 Curriculum and Supply lists are now available online at www.discovercca.org/curriculum-supply-list. If the lists are updated at any point, we will post the updated versions on Facebook.  Please remember to post all curriculum that you wish to sell on the “CCA Curriculum Board” Facebook page: www.facebook.com/groups/CCAcurriculumboard.   

 

Did you apply for the PEP Scholarship?  According to the guidelines, if you are buying from another CCA family or private seller, you need to use PayPal, Venmo, or similar to be sure the item is listed on the invoice. Families new to PEP should wait until after July 1st (the new scholarship year) to purchase the curriculum.  

 

PEP SCHOLARSHIP FAMILIES 

Funds are distributed through Step-Up quarterly.  If you are signed up to pay annually or semiannually next year you may want to consider changing to monthly.  The deadline to change your payment plan is May 31st without penalty.  After this date, there is a $100 change fee.  Please contact the Business Office to make the change at businessoffice@discovercca.org

 

SUMMER READING LISTS 

This summer, enjoy reading and earn dress-down passes for the 2024-25 school year!  Reading lists will be sent home with your student and can be found on our website:  https://www.discovercca.org/curriculum-supply-list 

 

This is a requirement for grades 3-12th and will be turned in to your teacher on the first day of school.  Optional lists are posted for rising K-2nd grade. A supplemental reading list is provided for all lower school students.  This list includes suggestions that can be family read-aloud choices and independent reading books. 

 

BIBLE CURRICULUM BUYBACK 

We are looking to purchase the 9th and 10th grade bible books, God’s Unfolding Kingdom: A Survey of the Old Testament, and Hope for God’s Kingdom: A Survey of the New Testament, from any family looking to sell theirs. We will pay $10/book. Please leave your book at the front desk with a label for Amanda White and your name. We will cut a check and mail it to you. 

 *This is the only buyback or donation of curriculum CCA is accepting at this time 

 

FUTURE UNIFORM REQUIREMENT & ONLINE STORE 

Starting the 2025-26 school year, CCA will transition to required uniforms.  Next year (2024-25 school year), the policy will stay the same, but as you are shopping over the summer you may want to consider beginning to utilize our new school store.  You can purchase the uniforms two ways, online at https://www.discovercca.org/schoolstore or in person by visiting All Uniform Wear in Fort Myers.  If you visit the store in person, they will embroider for free and make alterations for a $5 fee.  Please see the attached flyer with the available selections including PE uniforms.  The vendor will have a table at Maverick Games for you to look at the selections.
