Families, friends, faculty, staff, and students are invited to attend Family Gatherings every Wednesday morning from 8:30-9:00am in the Family Center. Each grade level is responsible for hosting several Family Gatherings during the year to showcase the topics, projects, and activities their class is focusing on. These student-led programs can be video productions, skits, oral presentations, or other celebrations of learning.
Family Gatherings offer students the opportunity to gain confidence on stage, practice presentation skills, and share what they are learning with the CBA community.
Bobcat Buddies & Trail Mix
Our mentorship program that takes place every Wednesday and builds community across our campus. In the Lower School, Bobcat Buddies pairs younger students with older students and allows them to build valuable friendships and learning partnerships throughout the year together. In the Upper School, we call this program Trail Mix. Mentor groups enjoy team building activities, read together, or work on enrichment projects each week. As we place a strong emphasis on relationship building, this program is mission critical for our campus.
Our goal for Middle School Council Houses is to build community across the Middle School, drive positive behavior, and encourage student ownership of their Middle School experience. Students spend time with their Council Houses each week building relationships, as well as planning and participating in community service projects.
We love for parents to be involved in CBA. Along with opportunities to get involved in your child’s classroom directly, we encourage you to join other parents with similar interests and gifts to serve on various parent committees. Parents are also invited to tune into our livestream of Family Gathering and other events.
