We had a great summer season, finishing 2nd at the state swim meet! Our team continues to grow and improve every season and we look forward to having your swimmer contribute to our great team!

We have an exciting season ahead! We have a couple new coaches this season and I am excited for you to meet them. We will also be having our first intersquad meet. More details to come.

From Katie Guthrie:

The Presidential Volunteer meeting for tonight at 6pm has been cancelled. If you have any questions about this program, please contact me at Thank you for volunteering and I look forward to seeing you at Presidential.


From Sharon Cox:

In case you didn’t know, CBCCA has 3 ways to earn money for our homeschooling group.  The first is Box tops for Education where each Box Top is worth 10 cents.  The more that you clip and turn in, the more $$$ we get.

The second is through Project A+ with Tyson Chicken labels.  These are worth 24 cents each.

The third way is through Labels for Education, where we don’t earn cash but earn points to purchase things from their catalog.

Please clip and turn them in to the Resource room located in the Children’s building.

Here are the websites so that you can see what products qualify:

You’re probably wondering what this money is used for??  The answer is:  field trips (entrance fees for students), physical fitness supplies for the Presidential program, lab equipment and supplies for CBCCA sponsored classes, etc.

Thank you for your participation, and watch this blog for important dates.
