Charger Kid’s Club

 

CTA’s Kid’s Club is back! The program runs Monday-Friday from 3-6:00 p.m. (1-6:00 p.m. on early release days) for students in grades K-5 and is administered by Sherry Fisk. Students will spend time making crafts, doing homework, working on team-building skills, playing games and participating in outdoor activities. Miss Sherry is married to Dan Fisk and mom to Nathaniel and Ethan Fisk in 7th and 4th grades at CTA. She has been active periodically in both the PTO and the CTA Creates program during the past three years and now serves as the PTO president.

She has also been an active member of the traffic safety program at CTA during the past year.

Sherry was a classroom parapro at their previous school. She is excited about being at CTA and working with the students. Contact Student Services at 616-696-4905 if you are interested in enrolling your child in Charger Kid’s Club.

CTA Receives Compliance Award

Arthur Willick, presents Dan George with compliance award.

At the regular board meeting for Creative Technologies Academy on Wednesday, September 13, field representative Arthur Willick of the Charter Schools Office of Ferris State University presented Superintendent Dan George with an award for the Academy’s 16th consecutive year of 100% Compliance. “Each year, the Charter Schools Office recognizes those Academies and their Boards who achieve 100% compliance in submitting documents to Epicenter as required by federal and state law and the charter contract,” explained Willick. “This is not an easy task, since compliance can entail hundreds of required documents, but it is a very important one and we congratulate those involved in this process.”
