NEXT WEEK 

********************************  

SEMI-ANNUAL TUITION PAYERS 

Invoices were sent, and payment is due on Monday, Dec. 5. Payment can be made by check or cash (preferred) to the Front Desk or Business Office.  


UPPER SCHOOL TEACHER GIFTS 

We will collect donations for the collaborative Upper School Teacher Gift until Monday, Dec. 5 at morning drop off. Once students start changing classes every hour it becomes challenging for families to recognize the teachers at Christmas. To help, we take a collection from Upper School families (6th-12th) who wish to give and combine the money to put together a gift basket for each teacher. Please place your cash donations, along with any cards or notes in the box at the Front Desk.  


RAISE RIGHT PHYSICAL GIFT CARDS 

Your gift-card order forms are due back by drop-off on the morning of Wednesday, Dec. 7. This is your chance to order a physical card - to use or give – and have CCA pay the shipping! A percentage of these cards goes to CCA at NO additional cost to you. This is our most profitable FREE fundraiser! Get a printable versions of the order form or order online. 


NATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY TOY DRIVE 

NHS invites your participation in a toy drive to support a Pine Island residents impacted by Hurrican Ian. FISH (Fellow Islanders Sending Help) is hosting a free Toy & Gift Store to give special Christmas cheer to those in need. New, unwrapped toys can be brought to school during drop off beginning through December 7. Please see our flyer with specific toy suggestions. 


GIVING TUESDAY 

Thank you for your support of CCA on Giving Tuesday last week. We appreciate those of you who gave.
