CWAA OCTOBER CHARACTER VALUE: Self-Control
“Do you not know that in a race the runners all compete, but only one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may win it. Athletes exercise self-control in all things; they do it to receive a perishable wreath, but we an imperishable one.” 1 Corinthians 9:24-25
CWAA FALL FUN FEST: Plan now to come out to the school for good food, fun and games on the evening of November 21st. Fun Fest will be from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm. Bring family and friends … see you there! If you would like to have a booth at Fun Fest please open the button below for an application form.
APPLE SALES: The Music Department and the Grade 12 Class are fundraising for their tours in the Spring. Students on the Music Tour are going to Vancouver and the Grade 12 Class is going to Europe in 2016. We are selling apples fresh from the orchard in Oliver, BC. This is the last order this year and is due by Monday, November 2. The apples will arrive on Friday, November 6 around noon and can be picked up until 2 pm that day. Please contact a Grade 12 student or a music student that you know or e-mail email@example.com if you would like to place an order. Payments should be made at the CWAA office. Thanks for your support. Please use the button below to access an order form.
PRAYING PARENTS: Praying Parents will meet this Thursday morning at 8:45 a.m. in the lobby. All are welcome for a time of praise and prayer.

Parent Teacher Interviews will be held Thursday, November 12 from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. To schedule an appointment to meet with each of your student’s teachers, email the office at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 403-286-5686.
FUNDSCRIP GIFT CARD FUNDRAISER: March 2017 may sound like a long time from now. But it will go by fast! Plans are already being made for the 2017 CWAA Mission Trip. While we are not ready to share many of the specific details of the trip at this time, it is certainly a great time for students to begin fundraising! Because the Canadian dollar has such a low value right now, it unfortunately does not make financial sense for us to sell the Florida citrus this school year. So our primary fundraiser is going to be selling gift cards through FundScrip. Basically, we sell gift cards at face value and then receive a percentage of that amount back from FundScrip to go toward the mission trip. You can buy the gift cards to use for your normal everyday purchases (groceries, gas, home repair stuff, clothing, eating out, etc.). Gifts cards also make great gifts! It doesn’t have to cost you any extra, you simply need to plan ahead by purchasing gift cards ahead of time. Order forms are available. Our first group order will be placed on Monday, November 9. So get your orders turned in to the CWAA office! You can pay by cash or cheque made out to Chinook Winds Adventist Academy. You also have the option of ordering gift cards online – so you can even let friends and relatives living in other parts of Canada know about this great opportunity!

“This is the message we heard from Jesus and now declare to you: God is light, and there is no darkness in him at all. So we are lying if we say we have fellowship with God but go on living in spiritual darkness; we are not practicing the truth. But if we are living in the light, as God is in the light, then we have fellowship with each other, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, cleanses us from all sin.” (1 John 1:5-7 NLT).
May each of us allow God to guide the footsteps of our lives this week to walk in His light!
Pastor Brent Wilson
