Lower School Newsletter

Dear CBA Families,

Our CBA students are excelling at many different experiences and learning projects. All year, students have opportunities to participate in various social action projects. We want to encourage our students to work together and build relationships with each other. Working on social action projects for a common goal can help develop their confidence. Having our students participate in these projects teaches them ways to improve other people’s lives or solve problems that are important to them in their communities.

This quarter, students worked on social action with their grade levels. For example, kindergarten students learned about veterans, so they made Veteran’s Day cards and sent them to the Veteran’s Association. Our third-grade classes decorated a prom at Broadway Towers nursing home in Knoxville. They also made notes and cards for the residents. Fourth grade collected 487 pounds of food to create 406 meals for the Second Harvest organization.

These are just a few ways our CBA students demonstrated the LIFESKILLS of caring and initiative. Now that the Thanksgiving Holiday is approaching, it’s a great time to talk with your children about being grateful and showing gratitude for all the blessings we have as a family and school.

Thank you,
Mary Liford
