General Mills Box Tops – now has an app to submit upc’s12 / July
We can still submit General Mills Box Tops the old way and receive cash for them, so please keep sending them in. However, they have notified us that they will gradually be phasing that procedure out in lieu of submissions by app.
For those of you who want to try something new...
Download the General Mills Box Tops app. You will have to register yourself and our school (you only need the name of our school). Then you just have to scan your receipt when buying the products and it will immediately register to our school. I just tried it and it does work, and ok,... it's a little bit fun! 😉 Ah, technology.
The downside for us is that we can no longer do the Box Tops contest in May because those people using the app will not be able to designate the student and class to which their submissions apply.
Clinton Blazevich Update9 / July
Clinton Blazevich, Pastor of CCF and teacher/bball coach at CCA, has had a bad heart for many years due to a virus that attacked it. On June 28th, he entered a critical emergency situation, and he will need a heart transplant. Temporarily, they have implanted an Impella pump in his left ventricle while awaiting the availability of a heart. There is a gofundme page to help with the Blazevich's expenses. If, however, you wish to give anonymously, please make checks out to CCF or CCA and mark Blazevich in the memo. We have a benevolence account where we can quickly move money to them for immediate needs. Most of all, please pray for the Blazevich family. Our Lord has already done miraculous things.
Final Report Cards – June’s Tuition Payment – Enrollment Fee 6/30 DEADLINE23 / June
According to our Policy on Tuition and Fees, tuition payments through the June tuition payment (11th of 12) must be received by the Academy for final report cards to be released and mailed. Final report cards are ready for mailing. We have released report cards of families current through their June tuition payments and will continue to mail report cards daily as the June payments come in and are processed.
Enrollment fee payments for 2019-20 were due on May 15th. There is now a $25 late fee assessed to those who missed that deadline. If not paid by midnight on June 30th, a second $25 late fee will be assessed. ($100 for first child in family; $25 for each additional)
There is a slot in the high school front door for payments. Postmarks are not considered.
Class of 2019 – CONGRATULATIONS!10 / June
Congratulations to our 2019 graduates! We are proud of you!
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.
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.
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!
