Student Council's goal is to raise $4,000. If Student Council reaches that goal, there will be a pretty epic all school event at the end of the year. This is our last week to raise money, so please get those donations in by Friday, April 12.

The class who raises the most money will get a free lunch from Olive Garden and a Pennies for Patients Swag Bag! Mrs. Tench's class is in the lead with $259.21 raised so far.

If Student Council exceeds their $4,000 goal, all CCA students will get a free dress day!

This year’s main fundraiser is the Flying Eagles Fun Run ! It’s a two-week program that kicks off with a Pep Rally on Wednesday, April 24 . Families will then gather pledges for every lap your student runs, and we’ll celebrate at the Fun Run on Friday May 3 . With
our big goal of raising over $20,000 for technology tools and instructional materials for CCA (including the gifted and talented program) , we asked the Fun Run experts at Boosterthon to power our Fun Run and make it easier, more profitable, and more fun.

Students will also experience an amazing character theme, Mindspark Mystery Lab ! Boosterthon’s most exciting theme yet combines S.T.E.A.M. skills (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) with character-building. While they're teaming up with the MindSpark Kids to solve mysteries, our students will learn five 21st-century character traits that will help strengthen themselves and our world.

So please help our school by reaching out to family and friends. Also, parents are invited to come out and cheer on your student at the Fun Run! Thank you for your support!

And a special thanks to our sponsors for helping make this day awesome!
