Series Begins Friday, Jan. 13
Join us for Learning About Learning, a series of information-packed discussions with Katherine Koonce, Academic Dean, exploring the amazing and sometimes complicated process of learning, and how our children’s learning affects our parenting. The series, which has an elementary and middle school parenting focus, includes seven sessions, each meeting on Friday morning in the Chapel. Join us for coffee at 7:45 a.m. All sessions, which are open to the community, will begin promptly at 8 a.m. and will conclude approximately at 9 a.m.
We hope to see you at the first session on Friday, Jan 13, as we discuss Creating a Learning Environment in Your Home: The Atmosphere and Attitudes of the Home. Our children are learning all the time—in school, in play and at home. Their learning is influenced by the relationship between their school, their home and their church. As parents, we have the privilege of setting the atmosphere and attitudes of our homes and of working together with the school to set the tone for learning with our children. In this discussion, we will consider which learning traits—curiosity, perseverance, cooperation, resourcefulness—we would like to see developed in our children and how we can encourage the development of these traits by the way we view and discuss learning in our homes.
Just a reminder to make note of these upcoming dates:
— TODAY is the deadline for new students seeking admission to apply to the Office of Enrollment.
— Re-enrollment forms will be mailed Wednesday, Feb. 1.
— Re-enrollment forms are due no later than Friday, Feb. 17.
Over the past two days, you might have noticed a large tent structure on the building side of the soccer/track complex. This is a temporary shelter to provide additional space for the Academy's wellness/physical education activities during the winter months (in light of how well-utilized our Event Center and Varsity Gymnasium are for sports, wellness classes and Fine Arts).
Third-Quarter Campus Prayer Walk
The first Campus Prayer Walk of 2012 will take place Monday, Jan. 9, at 8 a.m. in the Cross Garden. Join us as we walk the campus and pray for the Academy!
Pause to Pray Verse for Monday, Jan. 9
At noon each Monday, we encourage the CPA community to Pause to Pray. Monday's verse is from Psalm 121:7-8:
"Keep (child's name) from all harm. Watch over his/her life; watch over his/her coming and going, both now and forevermore."
