Toys for Tots Campaign Huge Success


Boxes were located in each of the three campus buildings
 for donations to be dropped off.

This year Creative Technologies Academy once again participated in the Toys for Tots toy drive. Over the past two weeks, students and their families have brought in a total of 109 toys. In addition to that, the CTA staff usually pool funds to purchase gifts for the administrators and chose this year to do a donation to Toys for Tots on behalf of the administrators. The staff raised $225 for more gifts. “…it was such a blessing to shop and donate these additional gifts so that children can have a toy under the tree on Christmas day,” shared elementary principal Autumn Mattson. It’s part of the CTA way to believe that it is better to give than to receive.

NHS Supports All Students Through Tutoring Club


K-12 Students receive free tutoring support from NHS students.

This year, our chapter of the National Honor Society (NHS) is offering free tutoring and homework support for all students on Thursdays from 2:45-4:00 p.m. This opportunity is available to all of our K-12 students; students can sign-up or drop-in. This is the first year that this has been offered, and our NHS students are really excited about helping their fellow students.

The NHS members not only help with assigned homework, they also try to help students improve academically. With the younger elementary students, the NHS members sit and listen to younger students read and help them with spelling words. The students enjoy either typing them or writing them on a whiteboard. At the end of our time, the NHS members and the students play “Hangman” or Pictionary with spelling words. Through this, the students are able to get to know each other better and have something to look forward to. With the older students, the NHS members help them in whatever subject they are struggling with and try to make it easier to understand.

I asked some of our NHS members what their favorite part of tutoring students is. Danielle August, the president, said, “I really enjoy getting to know the younger kids and being able to help them learn. It is a way to make a difference in someone else’s life and hopefully make a lasting, helpful impact.” Willow Sidlauskas, a new inductee said, “Tutoring the younger kids gives me a sense of confidence in that these kids aren’t going through school feeling frustrated with their classes. We’re here to make homework a little less work and a lot more fun.” Lastly, I asked the NHS advisor, Trisha Rose, what her favorite part about tutoring was and she said, “I like watching the NHS students create relationships with the younger students.”

Tutoring Thursdays are making a positive impact on the school’s community. More and more students are coming, and NHS is excited to meet and help any additional students who decide to join over the course of the year.

Beacon’s Run Your City Tour Concert at CTA Oct. 30


Free community concert

On Tuesday Oct. 30 at 7:00 p.m., Beacon Light will be performing a free concert at Creative Technologies Academy as part of the Run Your City Tour with Kevi Morse. Beacon Light is an award winning hip hop artist who has landed multiple songs on the Billboard Top 30 Radio Charts. His music video, “Haters,” won Best Video of 2016 in the We Love Music Awards. His songs have been featured on the NFL, Netflix, FOX, and Starz. He has performed alongside Grammy winning artists and tours the United States sharing his music and message. Beacon will be performing and speaking at CTA earlier in the day for an assembly to secondary students. During his assemblies, Beacon connects to students through music and powerful stories. His message challenges them to change their communities for the better and treat each other with respect. As a survivor of abuse, he tackles the content of bullying in a way that is real and relatable to students. “Love your haters. Its that simple,” says Beacon. “Everybody has someone in their life who has done something to offend or hurt them. But each of us has a choice, are we going to choose to respond to those people in a negative way? Or will we choose to make good decisions regardless of our circumstances and emotions?” Come on out to hear Beacon at CTA and help stomp out bullying.
