The Breeze Newsletter March 13 – 17, 2017

CHARACTER VALUE OF THE MONTH: For the month of March our school is emphasizing the character value of Honesty.  Scripture verse: Tell each other the truth because we all belong to each other in the same body.” Ephesians 4:25 

2017-18 REGISTRATION AT CWAA IS OPEN FOR ALL NEW AND RETURNING FAMILIES: Please keep in mind our space is limited in some classes and we will be capping class sizes at 25 for Grades 1-12 and 20 for Kindergarten. Fully completed applications will be processed in the order that they are received. If you have any questions about registration contact the school office.  Thank you to all families that have already registered!

ELEMENTARY FIELD TRIP TELUS SPARK: On Thursday, April 20th, Grades 1-3 will be going on a field trip to the Telus Spark Science Centre.  Grade 1 will attend the Sensory Wonders Workshop, Grade 2 will attend the Magnet Mission Workshop and Grade 3 will attend the Building for Sound Workshop.  The students should wear their CWAA Polo shirts that day.  They should also bring with them a sack lunch that does not need to be warmed up.

Open the button below to find your permission slip to be returned by Friday, March 17th. We will need a few parent volunteers to come with us. If you are available on that day and have a police clearance on file at the office, we would like you to join us.  Please notify your child’s homeroom teacher if you’re able to come.

CWAA ANNUAL CONSTITUENCY MEETING: All parents, pastors, board members, church members and staff are invited to join us on March 21, 2017 at 7:00 p.m. as we celebrate the past, present and future blessings of God on our school. Come out and enjoy a time of fellowship and sharing as we plan for the future of Chinook Winds Adventist Academy!

CHRISTIAN BOOK FAIR COMING TO CWAA: For a number of years our school has run a Book Fair to inspire our students to read. We have utilized the Scholastics Book Club for our fair, as their resources are current, accessible and our students love the variety of books and toys! However, our staff and parents have routinely expressed concern that the content is non-Christian and have wondered if it would be possible to run a Christian book fair. When ABC Manager, David Toews, approached me last year and suggested that the ABC could come to CWAA to run a book fair, I was overjoyed and jumped at the offer! So we booked a 2-day Book Club Fair at the same time as our Constituency Meeting last March and we enjoyed an exciting time of increased focus in reading high quality, current, beautifully displayed Christian resources. At the end of the Book Fair, the ABC generously donated proceeds from their sales to our library program. We are excited to have the ABC return to our school on March 20 – 23 to provide our students with Christ-centered literacy resources! Come on out & share in the excitement!

Chaplain’s Message:

“When I think of all this, I fall to my knees and pray to the Father, the Creator of everything in heaven and on earth. I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will empower you with inner strength through his Spirit. Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.” (Ephesians 3:14–19, NLT)

May each of you experience God’s love in a powerful way today. And may His love empower you to live for Him and let His light shine today!

Pastor Brent
