Christian Academy Schools
What is the Marketing Committee?
The Lord has provided our school with families and qualified staff invest in creating a community that is supportive and engaging for students. Christian Academy Schools equips and inspires the next generation of Christ-centered leaders. Christian Academy Schools has become a valued blessing to our Christian families.
The purpose of a Marketing committee will be to discuss and plan ways that will allow the mission and vision of Christian Academy Schools to be better known throughout the area targeting Christian families not yet enrolled at Christian Academy.
Help us get the word out….be a part of the marketing committee!

Don’t Forget to…
…Give Your Volunteer Hours to Mrs. McPheron
There have been many volunteer opportunities during the first few months of school. Many of you are already over your 20 hours a year or very close. There will be more opportunities available for you in the upcoming months. Don’t forget to call Mrs. McPheron to report volunteer hours. Mrs. Purple records these hours in RenWeb.
…Keep Your Permanent Files and RenWeb Updated
Please, keep records up to date. For example, RenWeb has a section to complete for emergency notification or who can pick up the child from school in case of an emergency. Also, if there has been a family court-related custody issue, the parent or guardian who has been awarded legal custody must bring a copy of the court’s legal decision. Please, help CAS keep records current.

Walk for the King
Walk for the King participants are located two miles short of Shade River Forest. Students, teachers and even parents are encouraged to find creative ways to be active especially during this crazy weather. Some winter activities could be built a snow fort, sledding or a winter walk while enjoying nature. Please be little descriptive when recording your activity – the log would show physical action. Keep up the good work if you are involved. If you are not a participant, join us! Remember the log is found in the box just outside of Mrs. Purple’s office.
Fit for the King
Fit for the King commenced with a grand start on Wednesday, January 10th. These students have a lot of physical ability and talent! Many great and varied activities are planned. We need the time learn the routine, so students are needed at each Wednesday practice. We plan to celebrate the Wednesday after the performance. More information is coming later.
Verse of the Week
Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights,
who does not change like shifting shadows. James 1:17
The world is filled with many good things for us to enjoy and fun things to do. Yet sometimes we become bored and unhappy with the good things God allows us to have. Do you sometimes feel like being naughty just to see what will happen? Of the thousands of good words, you know, do you sometimes find yourself saying a bad word? God knows that there are things that harm us, and there are things we may do that would hurt others. Because God knows what is good and what is bad for us, He clearly shows us in the Bible what we should and what we should not do.
