“Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord” Eph. 6:4.
As a support and extension of the family unit, Calvary Christian Academy considers the family to be of first importance to a child. God, through His Word, the Bible, indicates that the family is the most important human institution He designed, since He compares it to the relationship believers have with Christ and the Father. Therefore, at CCA we are continually seeking ways to actively involve the parents, siblings, and grandparents of our students in the programs of the school.
Below are just a few ways we do this. Please feel free to ask if you would like to try additional ideas.
- Visit the school/class at any time. (Simply call ahead out of courtesy to the teacher.)
- Assist in the classroom, regularly or infrequently. (Again, arrangements should be made with the teacher concerned.)
- Act as chaperone on field trips and/or library visits.
- Serve as a story-reader, song-leader (in K-3), guest artist or offer your special talents.
- With permission and arrangements with the teacher, present your vocation to the class.
- Share your experiences, trips, vacations, as they may relate to an area of study in a class.
- Volunteer your help in the preparations for the many tasks related to the annual fundraiser.
- Help host class parties at home or in the classroom.
- Attend all Parent-Teacher Conferences that are formally conducted each year. Informal conferences may be held anytime at the parent’s request.
- Closely monitor and praise your child’s progress by reading all teacher notes and student papers sent home!
- Teach an elective course.
