CWAA REGISTRATION UPDATE: Just an exciting update that we have achieved 186 students enrolled to date! A reminder to families that have not yet registered that there is less than 3 weeks left before the school office will close for the summer break.

POLICE INFORMATION CHECK FOR VOLUNTEERS: We’re very happy to announce that all parents now have the convenience of applying on-line for their Police Clearance Check with ePIC (the electronic Police Information Check online system). Applicants will be able to share their completed Police Information Check results with CWAA because we are a registered Agency with ePIC. Once you have given permission for CWAA to receive access we will be able to track applicant results. For more information and to apply on-line please go to www.policeinformationcheck.calgarypolice.ca Our Volunteer policy as stated in the CWAA Handbook reads:

Volunteer Program Volunteers compliment, assist and partner with our staff in virtually all aspects of CWAA. We value this contribution greatly and strive to offer our volunteers a productive and rewarding experience. It is our desire that all our families participate in some form of volunteering throughout the year. Volunteers are expected to have submitted a current (within the past two years) Police Information Check prior to volunteering. The Police Information Check will only be utilized for the purpose of minimizing the risk of harm to students. All information is kept strictly confident and will be used only for the purposes of this volunteer application.

CWAA keeps Police Clearance Checks on file for two years from the date of issue. If you’re not sure if you have a valid Police Check on file please contact the school office at 403-286-5686 or e-mail reception@nullcwaa.net.

Chaplain’s Message:

As we near the end of the school year, why not take a few minutes to reflect on how God has led and blessed over the past year! How has God blessed our school? How has God protected you and your family? How has the Holy Spirit spoken to you through God’s word? What are some moments of joy that God has blessed you with?

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good!

His faithful love endures forever. 

Give thanks to the God of gods.

His faithful love endures forever. 

Give thanks to the Lord of lords.

His faithful love endures forever.

(Psalm 136:1-3 NLT)
