CTA held its inaugural “Wall of Honor” induction ceremony on Thursday, October 23 in the CTA auditorium. Dr. DeWayne Coxon and Lexie Coxon were honored as the first inductees. The Coxons were co-founders of CTA in 1998. Dr. Coxon served as a consultant for a time after the school was started and Mrs. Coxon has served the school as Superintendent/School Leader, volunteer, and board recorder.

“I’ve always believed in the value of knowing our history,” said Superintendent/School Leader, Dan George.  “The Coxons’ vision and efforts in establishing CTA is an important part of that. I want our students to know about people that made sacrifices and dedicated time and effort to making this school a viable choice for them and their parents. We established the Wall of Honor to recognize those people.” It is anticipated the Wall of Honor celebration will be an annual event for the school.

October was a fun filled month for CTA Elementary; we experienced our first Spirit Week of the year.  Wow, the CTA Yearbook staff put together a fantastic week! Monday, the Crazy Hair theme was a hit. Tuesday’s PJ Day is always a crowd pleaser! Wednesday, who doesn’t enjoy a Beach Day in the middle of the week? Thursday was Inside-Out day; on Thursdays, we all feel a little inside-out.  Then to top it off, Charger Day on Friday, which led into a staff vs. students flag football game. The Staff came away with a victory, but the scores were close.

Also, we had our annual Halloween Parade on Friday, October 31! Superheroes, Elsas, and animals came out in spades.  Yes, it was snowy, but it is still fun! Everyone enjoyed showing off their costumes to the whole school. Pictured here (right) is second grade enjoying the festivities; Mrs. Krombeen and Olaf (Zachary Smith) were right with the weather forecast. The picture on the left is of the entire second grade class showing their Charger spirit on Halloween.
