have everything from Camp Creative to basketball

camps. Space is limited, so sign up today!

Best Wishes to CLA’s Ms. Ruby

Our Miss Ruby will be moving to Ohio at the end of this school year to be closer to

family. Ruby has been at CLA for six years. When she moved to Pensacola, she took

the job as After Care Coordinator at CLA. The next year she started the current format

of Camp Creative. “Ruby truly loves the environment that CLA provides for the

students” said Mrs. Ball. “She is caring, loving, and sensitive to the children’s needs.

She always wears a smile and truly enjoys working and being with children. She likes

for children to be engaged in age appropriate activities and to find success with their

learning.” Ruby says that she had lots of great memories of CLA that will keep her

warm on the cold Ohio nights. Safe travels, Miss Ruby. We will miss you!


Dr. H. Quincy Brown

Last week we tested our Parent Alert System. The test results revealed

a number of things about our system and a number of issues

about our database. When we send an alert, we receive a report of all

calls that were answered (human or machine), and all calls that could

not be processed. If you received a call on several sources, it is due

to the selections made in the preferences section of RenWeb. The Parent Alert System

defaults to calling the number entered in the cell phone box of the family forms.

Parents have the ability to modify the number called through the alert system (cell,

home, work). To change the default, simply enter Parent Web and from the left side

banner select School Information and Web Forms. In the working window you

need to select “Family Demographic Form”. Another working window will appear;

under Custodial Parents select one of the parents and a Custodial Parent Demographic

Form will appear. At the bottom of this page is a section called Preference.

You can select which method you would like us to use when we send a parent alert.

The “yes” column indicates the method of choice. Once you have selected your

choices, click on the Save button to complete the process.

Have you donated to the Annual Fund?

We need your support!!!

Every gift, no matter the size, counts!

We could list dozens of items that your gift, combined with others, helps

purchase. But how do you put a cost on planting the seeds of exploration

and personal discovery, nurturing intellectual curiosity, or inspiring

a desire to help others? Your gift makes all this possible.

When you give to the CLA Annual Fund, you help provide the exceptional education and

close community that has always made our school special. And you help us accomplish our

most important goal: inspiring a passion for learning in your child.

We need your support.

Our goal this year is to raise $80,000, we are $10,000 away from that goal!

Our financial strength is dependent upon participation of all members of our community.

Please join us; it is the best way to show your belief in a CLA education. Your support will

positively impact the present-day and future of our school. This year we have allocated

funds from the Annual Fund to paint the exterior of the school. Also, building ‘A’ will undergo

an interior renovation. Both of these projects will be done over the summer.

Every gift, no matter the size, counts!

To make your donation, simply complete a donation envelope and mail or drop off in the office

or click below to make your donation online. Please make your donation by May 31st.

Additional envelopes are available in the office. If you have any questions, please contact

Vicky Wonders, Development Director.
