The Breeze for the week of April 28-May 2, 2014

Re-Registration Continues! Thank you to all parents who have submitted Re-Registration packages! We are looking forward to seeing all re-registration packages return to CWAA by April 30, as this will enable us to plan for our 2014-2015 school year. (Please note: our Kindergarten program will be capped at 20 students and all Grades 1-12 class sizes will be capped at 24 students.) If you require any additional admissions forms, please visit our website or call the office.

2014-2015 Staff Changes : We are sad to report that three of our beloved staff members will be leaving us for the 2014-2015 school year: Mrs. Crews (Librarian/Elementary Educational Assistant), Mr. Bedford (Junior High Humanities) and Ms. Guet (Grade 4). Mrs. Crews is returning to university to pursue a teaching degree, Mr. Bedford will be joining his soon-to-be-bride in Edmonton and Ms. Guet is returning home to Edmonton to be closer to her family. We wish them God’s richest blessing as they depart from CWAA.

Chaplain’s Message

“A good person produces good things from the treasury of a good heart, and an evil person produces evil things from the treasury of an evil heart. What you say flows from what is in your heart.” (Luke 6:45 NLT).

“The heart is the well-spring of life. Therefore, parenting is concerned with shepherding the heart. You must learn to work from the behavior you see, back to the heart, exposing heart issues for your children. In short, you must learn to engage them, not just reprove them. Help them see the ways that they are trying to slake their souls’ thirst with that which cannot satisfy. You must help your kids gain a clear focus on the cross of Christ.” (Tripp, Tedd. Shepherding a Childs Heart (2nd Edition). Wapwallopen, PA: Shepherd Press, 2003.)

May we as parents and educators seek to direct young people to focus their hearts on Christ!
