Middle School Trivia Night was a Success!
Thank you to everyone who joined CCA's First Annual Trivia Night! More than 100 students, staff members and family members competed last Friday as Student Council tested their knowledge on everything from Pop Culture to Geography.

Congratulations to 8th graders Alisa K., Nandini M., and Amelia G., also known as Team ANA, on their victory!

Thank you Student Council for hosting such a fun event and for creating a way for us to connect virtually!

Safety and Mask Reminder
We are so excited to have our Elementary students back in person. As we are settling back in, we wanted to send a friendly reminder to our families about wearing masks when you are near CCA. We are asking that when you are waiting outside of CCA or walking across the crosswalk that you have a mask on. We want to do everything in our power to remain in person and that means taking every health/safety precaution that we can. We want to thank you for your partnership during this unique time and for your commitment to a safe and healthy school.
