    wellness meeting announcement

    Clear Creek Amana invites parents and community members to a meeting about the school wellness policy on Wednesday, February 28 at 3:30pm at CCA Middle School. We will be reviewing our committee action plan at this meeting.  Having healthy choices at school helps keep our children healthy and ready to learn. The school wellness policy helps our school create an action plan for nutrition and physical activity at school.  Parents can share their opinions and help make sure the policy is meeting the needs of our students. Clear Creek Amana’s wellness policy is available on our district website or by contacting Kathy Campbell at kathycampbell@ccaschools.org

    Parents who are unable to attend the meeting can email comments about the wellness policy or nutrition and physical activity at their school to:  kathycampbell@ccaschools.org.

  • Elementary Art Nights

    Date:  March 6, 2018
    RSVP Date: February 28, 2018
    Where: CCA High School Art Room

    CCAHS Art Club hosting their annual Elementary Art Nights for 3rd, 4th and 5th graders. Activities as follows: 

    Tuesday, March 6th: Lotus Floats Origami blossoms made with waterproof paper. Loy Krathong, the Festival of the Floating Lotus, is an annual event that is celebrated throughout Thailand, Laos, and Burma in mid-November. The Krathong is a bouyant lotus-shaped basket bearing flowers, candles, incense, and other decoration. Thousands are placed on the water and in larger cites there are parades, fireworks, and paper sky lanterns. In many cultures, the lotus flower represents new beginnings. Similar festivals in Japan and Hawaii are focused on remembering loved ones and honoring the deceased. Origami flowers that are created with a waterproof sheet of paper can be set on the water with candles and messages in a Western version of Loy Krathong. Mineral paper is created from calcium carbonate and a small amount of plastic — not trees. The paper folds and floats beautifully. 

    Tuesday, March 20th: Fabric Bookcovers for your favorite book 
    Who doesn’t have that favorite book that they want to keep forever. In this session we will make fabric book covers and decorate them with block printing and paint - designing a cover that will go with the book. Students are asked to bring their favorite book but it MUST BE A HARDCOVER BOOK and no bigger than 9”X7” 

    Limit of 20. First come, first serve. Please see registration form for more details.
