Director’s Message

Dear CSA Families, 

November is a great time to be consciously grateful for things and people in our life. At CSA, we are grateful for our beautiful school building, our amazing learners and families, as well as our wonderful facilitators and staff.  Gratitude can be thought of as small acts of acknowledging what and for whom one is grateful. For example, this could be as simple as calling up a friend and telling them how much they mean to you. 

This month at CSA, we will be encouraging our learners to express gratitude. Writing, speaking and reflecting on one thing you are grateful for each day can positively impact your health and wellness. Join us in sharing gratitude. Write a note to your learner and let them know how much you appreciate them.  Show your gratitude to a neighbor, a CSA staff member or facilitator.

This week, CSA facilitators will be sharing an academic progress email with each family.  This communication is to inform you of your learner’s current progress.  Please feel free to contact your learner’s facilitator with any questions you have.
