In order to ensure CCA has an accurate count for the next school year, we ask that you please take the time to complete this  Intent to Return   Form. Please note that if you indicate a child is not returning, this acts as a withdrawal form with an effective date of the last day of school. 

Please direct any questions or concerns to Caitlin Sullivan, CCA Registrar, at
Peer Tutoring for Students in K-4 :
Wednesdays from 7:30 a.m. - 8:00 a.m.

Peer Tutoring is now available on Wednesday mornings from 7:30 a.m. - 8:00 a.m. Tutoring is available on a first come first serve basis for students in grades K-4. Peer Tutoring is being offered by CCA's Peer Helpers. Students can come in for homework help or to work on AR goals. 

For Wednesday morning tutoring, please check in with Ms. Sadie at the front desk. We are able to help tutor 3 students per Peer Helper (about 6 students total). Peer Tutoring will be held in the conference rooms in the front office. Students who arrive for Peer Tutoring are expected to stay the entire 30 minutes. Once the student limit is met, any other student present for tutoring will be directed to the gym.

If your child will be attending Peer Tutoring, please have them bring 1-2 AR books, as well as any homework they would like to work on. There will be computers available for students to take AR quizzes.
4th Grade Medieval Festival

A great time was had by all!
