At Clear Water Academy, throughout the weeks of Lent, we have a special campaign happening to help us re-focus in prayer a few times throughout the day: to re-activate refresh, and recharge our lives of faith.

Here are some "APPS" that you may consider installing and putting into practice at home as your family journeys throughout the season of Lent.

2nd Annual 
Clear Water Academy Ladies' Virtue Party

Calling all ladies! Don't forget to register for the 2nd annual Clear Water Academy Ladies' Virtue Party to be held on Monday, April 3, 2017 at the Calgary Golf & Country Club.

Registration deadline has been extended to Sunday, April 2nd.

In preparation for our annual Mother's Day Tea at Clear Water Academy on May 3rd, we are looking for some mothers (or grandmothers!) who enjoy art and have artistic talents that would like to help create some art displays at the Mother's Day Tea.

Please contact Diane Belisle if you can help out!

Fried Fish and Fried Minds
A Huge Success!

We'd like to thank the approximately 200 people who attending our First Annual Lenten Fish Fry and special screening of "Screenagers" last Friday night. The feedback we received was overwhelmingly positive.

SAVE THE DATE! Fried Minds - Now What? Friday, June 9, 2017 @ 7:00 p.m.

Join Tech Talk Tuesdays!

Thank you to everyone that attended the screening of SCREENAGERS last week - it was a huge success!

The producers of the movie have recommended that parents sign-up for Tech Talk Tuesdays!

To help kids avoid unhealthy screen time, we have found that having weekly, short calm conversations with kids is key. So, each Tuesday we email you conversation starters about social media, research, tech tips and much more to incite a dynamic conversation with your kids or students. We call it "Tuesday" but of course any day is great. Scroll down to see dozens that we have already sent out to many families. 

Pray The Rosary With Us

Please join us on Wednesday mornings after drop-off in the Bessborough Hall Chapel to pray the Rosary. This is a beautiful way to start off your day.

We hope to see many of you there!
