Update for Families

Dear CCA Families,

What a learning curve we have had this week, thank you to everyone who has reached out to us with encouragement and letting us know how things are going!

This will continue to be a fluid process as we are learning new things each day, thank you for your patience with us. Usually I am walking through the hallways and into classrooms to see what students are up to and to see the great teaching our staff is doing. Instead I receive lesson plans for the lower grade students and for 4th-12th grades I am on Google Classroom perusing all that is happening. There has been amazing communication, excellent learning and fun interaction with students and teachers.

At this point in our week, everyone should have heard from either one of our teacher leaders (Ms. Rogers, Mrs. Saxby, Mrs. Savino) or from your student's teacher. We want to continue the communication with all of our families as to what is happening on our side. At the beginning of next week you will be able to go to our FACTS/Renweb Parent Portal and find the best way to communicate with your student's teacher. Teachers are also checking their email accounts frequently, so that is also available for you to reach out to them.

Starting Monday, March 23, the CCA office will be closed. Drop off and pick up of homework and/or packets will still be on Fridays from 7:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. in our cafeteria. If you are needing to make a payment, please do so at our childcare center at the end of Academy St. They are available to take your CCA payments. Please do not leave a message on our CCA phones, messages will not be picked up by staff members. Email is the best way to reach a staff member, unless they have let you know otherwise.

If you have Chromebook issues, please feel free to reach out to Warren Davis our IT Director. His email address is ithelp@ccawenatchee.org. If you are having internet issues, that is something that you would need to speak to your provider about.

We have seen a lot of success with families who have done the ideas listed below:

  • Designate a space for your child to do their schoolwork.
  • Set a schedule for your student to be doing "school."
  • Take walks with your children and just chat.
  • Find positives every day with your student, making a list that can be read daily.
  • Monitor the time your child is on their technology.

We are praying for all of you and know you are loved and thought of often!
