Chargers Take It To The Hoop


 

The ladies fought but fell to the Algoma Christian Knights in their second game of the season, which was played at “home” at Cedar Springs Middle School on Dec. 9. Faith Watson led the ladies scoring efforts with six points and was supported with points from Brianne Calkins, Holly Fahling, Hannah Hofstra, Tori Wierda and Devin Slocum. Zoe Roesner and Autumn Watson contributed valuable defensive minutes and were key players in the game. The Lady Chargers showed growth in their confidence in their roles and are looking forward to their next challenge against Aviation Academy on Dec. 22. Everyone got in on the action and was able to gain game experience. The girls are making progress and are demonstrating a stronger grasp on their offensive and defensive roles. Creative Technologies Academy Boys Varsity Basketball won against Algoma Christian with a final score of 67- 61.

Creative Technologies Academy boys cross country team was awarded the Michigan Class D Cross Country Championship Team Academic All-State Award. Only the top five highest ranking combined GPA team averages are awarded “Team Academic All-State.” The Championship meet was held at Maple Creek Golf course in Shephard, Mich.

In order to be eligible, individual team members must have a 3.50 GPA or better, who finish in the top 25 percent of places overall in order to receive the honor. Athletes must be at least a sophomore and the GPA is based on a standard 4.0 grade scale with no weighted grades.

“The award is for all of the hard work, diligence and sacrifice the cross country athletes put forth in the classroom during the season,” said Coach Danielle Davies. “Fewer than 10 percent of all athletes in the Class D State Championship receive this team award. It is a high honor to have such a great team committed to both their education and cross country.”

Never Been Absent


 

The K-5 students at Creative Technologies Academy are competing for positive attendance! In an effort to promote the importance of attendance, teachers created the “Never Been Absent” program (NBA), a friendly classroom competition in which students receive a weekly in-school average on their attendance. At the end of each month, the class with the highest weekly average wins fifteen minutes extra recess!

In September, Mrs. Campbell’s third grade class won with a 98% attendance rate! In October, Mrs. Norman’s fifth grade class won with an average of 98% for the whole month.

“We feel the majority of our students find NBA to be a friendly competition,” shared Mrs. Norman. “It promotes positive attendance, and in turn helps prevent gaps of missed instruction throughout the school year.”

Elementary students gather to kick off the school year.

WOW! We have started another year at Creative Technologies Academy Elementary, we love having so many fresh, new faces in our halls along with the many returning faces! The hallways have been filled with laughter, kindness, and lots and lots of learning in these first couple weeks! One new face in the CTA elementary is Mrs. Mattson, the new Dean of Students, and CTA is very lucky to have her on board as we work on character development and what being a Charger is all about! We are so excited to experience all that she has in store for us this year!

The kids are ready and excited for this school year to begin. Zoey, a returning first grader said, “I am excited to make new friends!” These kids are ready to start receiving the knowledge the teachers at CTA are more than willing to give. “I am excited to read more books,” said Liam, another first grader. The staff and students are ready to have another GREAT year at CTA!!!

GO CHARGERS!!!

CTA Assists With GRPD Appreciation Project


 

cta-grpd-1CEDAR SPRINGS, Mich. – Creative Technologies Academy teamed up with a volunteer group to assemble approximately 200 bags for the Grand Rapids Police Department. CTA parents, Laura Wortz and Ruthanne Brinks, were asked to be involved and plan an appreciation dinner for the GRPD as their husbands both protect and serve as police officers.

“We wanted our school to be a part of this,” Wortz commented. “We wanted them to have the opportunity to give back to the men and women who give so much to all of us.”

cta-grpd-218 members of the CTA Cross Country team, along with their coaches, helped pack the bags with chips, granola bars, gum and mints. CTA’s elementary students and Charger Kid’s Club spent time decorating the bags before they were filled. The bags that were leftover from the appreciation dinner were given to the community officers to share with the youth that they encountered during their shifts.

Meijer was a major sponsor and provided a generous donation for the supplies for the event.

Asbestos Management Plan


 

The Asbestos Emergency Response Act (AHERA) requires all schools to have an “Asbestos Management Plan” and to make that plan available to all concerned parties. Creative Technologies Academy, an asbestos free school, hereby notifies all parents, building occupants, and the parent association that the Asbestos Management Plan for all buildings under the jurisdiction of this local education agency is available in the principal’s office of Creative Technologies Academy located at 350 Pine Street in Cedar Springs Michigan.

This notification is to advise all concerned parties that the Asbestos Management Plan required under the AHERA is available for review upon request. The plans can be viewed by any person during normal business hours. Those interested in reviewing the Asbestos Management Plan can inquire about the hours and times that the plans are available by contacting Mr. Dan Clark, Director of Energy and Maintenance, or the School Leader at 616-696-4905.

Creative Technologies Academy has followed all of the laws pertaining to asbestos in schools for the state of Michigan. Based on the findings, there is no asbestos on the CTA campus. Steps have been taken for a permanent exemption because there is no asbestos to monitor or remove.

Affirmed by the Board of Directors, August 10, 2016
