CCA Orientation and Copy Fees
Monday, August 28th:  Kingsway Community Church
We will meet in the Seminar Room. 
Once you enter the church and pass the restrooms, make a right and we are in the large room to the right in that hallway.

The times have been broken down by the grade level of your child.  If you have children in more than one grade area, please try to attend the session for your oldest age child if possible.  You only need to attend one session per family.  You will be able to drop off your copy fees during this time as well as pick up and pay for book leases: 
Algebra 1 ($10) and Mrs. Francis' Geometry ($5). 
Checks for these can be made out to CCA if that applies. 

TIME: 
10:00am - 10:15am   Copy/Supply Fee Drop off
10:15am  -10:45am  Orientation K - 6th Grade
10:45am - 11:00am   Copy/Supply Fee Drop off
11:15am - 11:45am  Orientation 7th - 12th Grades
11:45am -12:00pm Copy/Supply Fee Drop off

**PLEASE REMEMBER THAT ALL COPY AND SUPPLY FEES ARE PAID DIRECTLY TO EACH TEACHER. DO NOT MAKE THESE OUT TO CCA OR INCLUDE IN YOUR TUITION PAYMENTS.** 

You should have received an email with a list of copy and supply fees for your convenience.   When writing copy/supply fee checks to bring to Orientation, you should make one out to EACH teacher and not to CCA.  There will be labeled containers for each teacher to drop off your payment for them.  Please put your student's name in the memo section of your check.  If you choose to pay via cash, please bring the exact amount in a labeled envelope, one for each teacher.  Again, please be sure to put your student's name on the envelope.

Teachers will also be creating an assignment in each class entitled "Welcome Letter".  This will have an attachment of the teacher's welcome letter, materials needed, etc so be sure to go take a look!!  Many classes will be posting Pre-Class Assignments that need to be completed before the first day of class, so please be sure you are able to log-on to Engrade.


END OF YEAR TESTING
We will once again be offering end-of-year testing from May 31st - June 3rd. 

In order to meet the varying testing needs, this year we will be offering several options for testing.

For grades K-3, we will be offering the IOWA TEST OF BASIC SKILLS. According to HSLDA this is the top-rated national standardized test, similar to the Stanford Achievement Test, but takes less time to administer and offers greater flexibility to students who may wish to test out of the grade norm.  Everyone who will be involved with the testing process at CCA this year has gone through the testing administrator qualification process.  There are also many sites online where you will be able to fine preparatory materials if you are interested in studying beforehand.  CCA will offer this test to the students in a familiar, small setting atmosphere where we hope they will feet at ease and comfortable in taking the test.

Grades 4 - 12 will have two options for testing.  As in years past, we will offer the CAT SURVEY for those families who want to only test for what is requested by the county.

For those families who would like a complete battery of tests for grades 4 - 12, we are offering the STANDFORD ACHIEVEMENT TEST.  This too is a nationally recognized test and will provide parents with a full composite score.  It also includes a detailed section in listening skills.  Additionally, the test scores from this test can be used for application to the National Honor Society if anyone with qualifying scores is interested in applying. 

If you would like to register your student to take the test, please email cca4uinfo@gmail.com  with your student's full name, birthday, and grade level of test you would like them to take.

Cost
Grades K-3  Iowa Test: $45
          Grades 4-12 CAT Survey Test:  $45
          Grades 4-12 Stanford Achievement Test:  $60

A deposit of $25 per student is required by April 25th.
The balance will be due May 21st. 
You can drop off your check made out to CCA in the
