Mr. Messer's Message

The end for the first quarter is quickly approaching. Friday, October 6th is the last day of first quarter and students will be out of school on Monday, October 9th. This will be used as a professional development day for our faculty and staff.

This spring CHCA will be undergoing the AISA re-accreditation process. A large part of our professional development day will focus on re-accreditation. In preparation for the re-accreditation process we are asked to complete an in-depth self-study. As part of this study, we are developing an improvement plan, which lists goals in the areas of the Faith-Family-Future motto.

We are also adding a new opportunity for parents to stay informed. Next Friday, October 6th, we will hold our first FRIDAY FAMILY FORUM. The Friday Family Forum will meet at 8:30 a.m. in the Junior High Space of the church building. Administrators from each division will be present to share good news and inform you of upcoming events. Coffee and donuts will be served beginning at 8:00 a.m. We welcome all who can to attend as we strive to communicate more effectively with our parents.

God Bless and Go Warriors!
