CWAA’s HIKE-A-THON FRIDAY, JUNE 6:  This year our hike-a-thon will take place OFF school campus. At 10:45 a.m. on June 6, students, staff and parent volunteers will be bused (by Southland Transportation) from CWAA to the trail-head of the Bow River Pathway (at Valley Glen Heights NW). Students will hike by the Bow River to Baker’s Park, where they will be picked up by 12:45 p.m. Our students have chosen to raise money for a Calgary charity called “Kid’s Cancer Care” (70% will go towards Kid’s Cancer Care and 30% will go towards the CWAA Basement Project). Kid’s Cancer Care is a local charity that helps support kids fighting cancer by providing camps for children, community education, family support groups and cancer research and treatment (www.kidscancercare.ab.ca). Our Goal is to raise between $1,500 and $2,000 for the Kid’s Cancer Care! Please join us in hiking and showing kindness to our local neighbor, Kid’s Cancer Care. Parent volunteers are welcome and needed … if you’re able to volunteer please contact your child’s homeroom teacher. All students were given a Hike-a-Thon Pledge Sheet. Please help your child(ren) find donors to support this great cause!

Our students positively represented our school!  Great work!

Chaplain’s Message

“Jesus spoke to the people once more and said, “I am the light of the world. If you follow me, you won’t have to walk in darkness, because you will have the light that leads to life.”” (John 8:12 NLT)

Our world is full of darkness and pain, storms and sorrow. But according to the words of Jesus in John 8:12, it seems that if we follow Jesus, we will walk in light. What a privilege to be able to choose to follow Jesus and allow Him to light our path in life! Then we can be sure of our footing, even in the middle of the darkest storm!

Pastor Brent Wilson
