Half Days of School16 / May
Our last two days of school are half days. Penn Hills does not honor our half days, so other transportation will need to be made by you.
Last day of school – Elementary Picnic16 / May
As tradition, the elementary grades always have a picnic at 11:00 a.m. on the last half day of school, Friday, June 7th. Chicken and watermelon are provided by the school; other contributions may be made. If the weather is nice, blankets may be brought to eat in the field outside. If you plan to take your child home after the picnic, please notify bus transportation.
Fun Fair – June 4th16 / May
The annual K-6th grade elementary Fun Fair (and Bake Sale), run by Mrs. San Rocco and her 6th grade students, is scheduled for Tuesday, June 4th from 12:45 p.m. to the end of the school day. Parents may feel free to attend with any siblings. If you would like to contribute something for the bake sale, please package in small packages "to sell." Mrs. San Rocco requests 2-liter bottled pop to be donated to be used for a ring-toss game in the CCA gymnasium. There will be many games to play for the children, so we suggest you send them to school with some quarters. Again, if you are taking your children home after the Fun Fair, please remember to cancel bus transportation.

Cheswick Christian Fellowship VBS8 / May
CCF will hold its annual VBS from June 17th through June 21st @ 5:45-8:30 p.m. The theme this year is TO MARS AND BEYOND; Deb Caldwell is again our director! This event is free, but pre-registering is strongly recommended. VBS is for any student who will be entering a kindergarten class in the fall through those just finishing 6th grade. Flyers will be sent home with all elementary students several times before the end of the school year. If you pre-register by the last day of school, June 7th, your child/ren will be entered in a drawing for a prize.
Class of 2019 Commencement8 / May
Commencement for our class of 2019 will be held Friday, June 7th @ 7:00 p.m. at Penn State New Ken's auditorium (3550 7th Street Road, 15068). All are invited to attend. It's always an interesting event as each graduate is given a chance to speak about their days at CCA.
Unexcused Absences & Tardies4 / April
As stated in our rules, when a student is absent (either for a whole day or half day) or tardy, an excuse from the parent or doctor is required within 3 days. If an excuse is not received, the absence or tardy becomes unexcused. We have been informed of a new PA law, effective immediately, which states that as a non-public school we are not required to take action on unexcused absences or tardies, but we are to report them to the student's home school district once the number of unexcused absences or tardies passes three.

Cheswick Christian Academy presents, under the direction of Mrs. Brandy Blazevich, "Dorothy in Wonderland" on Saturday, May 18th.

Tickets are on sale in the Academy office or can be purchased at the door. Adults - $10; Students through 12th grade - $8.
Food Assistance Programs12 / December
Foodfinder.us is a nonprofit website that offers the location and contact information of more than 40,000 food pantries and similar food programs across the country. If you, or someone you know, could benefit from this program, please look into it.
General Mills Box Tops5 / December
Hello all. In case some of you don't know, we collect General Mills Box Tops and the elementary school has a contest each year for the class and individuals who submits the most. There will be an assembly in May to reveal the winners. If you have more than one child in the elementary, your total amount of boxtops submitted is applied to every one of your children's classes for the sake of the contest. Please clip, collect, and send them in with your family's last name on them. High school parents can send them in also; there's just not a contest for theirs. It is a great fundraiser for us because General Mills sends us cash for our submissions.
Giant Eagle, Shop ‘n Save, Goodsearch, & Printer Cartridges5 / December
If you link your Giant Eagle Advantage Card to our school (#0194), they will give us a percentage of your costs each time you shop.
If you link your Shop 'n Save Card to our school (#217), we can use points for Carnegie Science Center assemblies.
If you sign up to use the search engine, Good Search (also known as Good Shop) and link our school, they also send us a check each year.
We also collect used printer cartridges (small ones; not big ones). Please place in a sealed zip-lock type bag and send them in.
Thanks for all your help in these little ways.
Amazon Smile22 / October
When doing your online shopping at Amazon, choose Amazon Smile (https://smile.amazon.com) instead of Amazon.com. Then, select CCF as your charitable organization! Every eligible purchase will count towards $ for us. The shopping is exactly the same with the same products and prices. The only difference is Amazon sends us a portion of your purchase in the form of a check because we are a 501(c)(3) organization! Many people are already doing this, so we are getting frequent checks from Amazon. It is a great deal for us!
