Keep up to date with our most recent announcements.
2019-20 CCA Calendar and Policy on Tuition & Fees6 / February
The 2019-20 CCA Calendar & 2019-20 Policy on Tuition & Fees have been posted on this website under "DOWNLOADS." FYI: There is no tuition or enrollment fee increase for 2019-20.
Revised Lunch Calendar1 / February
Please be aware that we have had to make revisions to the posted lunch calendar due to the weather closings and delays. The revised calendar has been posted on this website.
Snow Delays and Cancellations21 / January
For a complete explanation of how CCA handles snow delays and cancellations, see "SNOW DAYS" in the "DOWNLOADS" section on this website. In short, we don't call for delays because we serve too many districts. We ask that you follow the post of the district in which you live, which is why you will see our post "follow district bus schedule" on KDKA, WTAE, and WPXI if a lot of our districts start posting 2-hour delays. If enough of our districts close, we will follow suit. It's winter! 🙂
Also remember that if your child wants to order lunch and he/she will be coming late to school due to a delay, you will need to call the school (preferably the kitchen) by 9:30 a.m. to order your child's lunch. The kitchen numbers are on the bottom of the lunch calendar posted on this website.
Schwan’s – online grocery fundraiser – NOW!9 / January
As it turns out, Schwan's is terminating their Schwan's Cares fundraising program. The only way we could participate in it was to start it TODAY, 1/9/19. It will be shortened and will only run until April 30th with our largest profit margin (20%) between the dates of January 9th to February 23rd. From February 23rd to April 30th, our profit margin decreases to 5%. We also receive 40% on purchases of $25 e-gift cards (which is $10 - see below on how to obtain an e-gift card*), but they are only available one per customer during the campaign, and for maximum profit should then be used for an additional purchase after April 30th once the fundraising campaign ends. In addition, the Schwan's $ incentives they issue after each order would be better used towards an order after the campaign is over to maximize CCA's profit.
Schwan's has locations nationwide so out-of-state families and friends may participate. Our campaign ID is 44471. You can sign up online at schwans-cares.com/c/44471. Ignore the team member prompt.
*To purchase the e-gift card (e-gift cards only, not regular gift cards), go to https://www.schwans-cares.com/campaigns/44471-cheswick-christian-academy and scroll down to the bottom. Again, it is better for our profit if you wait till the campaign is over to use the e-gift card.
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!
