All students receive 2 thirty minutes of recess daily. The additional recess is beneficial for the development of children academically, socially, and emotionally. This is based in research and links to some of the studies are provided for you.
Monies from the fair fundraiser allow our students to take multiple field trips throughout the school year. CCA values field trips and opportunities for our students to explore new places, ideas, and have new experiences.
Other monies raised currently are being reserved to improve our gym floor. The support of the community and CCA families make a difference for our students. THANK YOU!
