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.

Elementary Literacy Week Starts Monday!

Wanted: Guest readers for your child's class during the week of March 20-24th.
