Cornerstone Academy Parents and Teachers
Mission and Vision
The mission of CAPT is ultimately to support the teachers and staff in educating the students while also helping the kids grow in knowledge and love for the Lord. CAPT aims to help add to the positive atmosphere of the school so that kids can learn at their best. The activities CAPT provides aid in fostering a loving community dedicated to the students’ learning.
CAPT should provide a friendly atmosphere for parents to voice concerns and solutions to potential problems as they arise, while also working towards solutions that benefits everyone. We will act as a bridge between parents and teachers to help communication and discussion flourish.
Throughout the year we run a few events that aim to advance fellowship and community in our school.
Three Family Fun Nights These are times to hang out together and get to know one another, or even invite a friend to see a little bit about what makes our community so special.
Teacher Appreciation Week The teachers at Cornerstone work hard to provide a wonderful education for out students. This is our way to thank them especially for what they do. We’ll provide lunches and little things throughout the week to remind them again of how much we appreciate them.
Dads and Donuts and Mother’s Day Celebration This is a chance for parents to interact and continue to foster community at the school, and to have a special time with their children at school.
Being a regular member of the team means that you’ll be connected with the school and know what’s happening there. You’ll be able to share ideas, concerns and experiences with other parents and teachers. Our CAPT meetings are opportunities to meet with each other, build a rapport and discuss issues that are on your mind. You can help make positive changes at the school, or help plan fun family events that only make our community stronger. We try to have a variety of events and very few small fundraisers throughout the year that could always use a helping hand, either at home or during the event itself. The more people that help, the easier the event becomes.
If you’d like to join you can email the school secretary or the CAPT president, ask on the CAPT facebook page, or just show up at one of the monthly meetings that occur the first Wednesday of every month from 9:00 – 10:15 in the school’s foyer.
Some of our Events
Family Fun Night at Jump, Rattle & Roll Nearly the whole school came out to get their wiggles out. Parents had fun chatting on the sofa while the kiddos from all ages jumped their heart out. It was a wonderful night to have fun together as a community and say hello to someone you might not have met before.
Family Fun Night: Movie Night We had a packed house munching on popcorn and celebrating a fantastic Read A Thon while watching Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day. There were concessions to purchase and prizes distributed from the Read A Thon, and lots of laughs from the movie as well.
Veteran’s Day Assembly We invited veterans to our assembly where we heard some of their stories, sang patriotic hymns, listened to poetry like “In Flanders Field” be recited, and had a reception afterwards.
Dads and Donuts Dads, or another family member, were welcomed to the school where they got to start the morning with our regular morning assembly, then eat a donut together, play some games, do an obstacle course, and complete a scavenger hunt for some neat prizes.
NFL Day Kids got to dress up in Seahawk colors, or root for any team they wanted. During recess there was also face painting to make the day just a little bit more extra special.
Moms Celebration Moms, or another family member, were welcomed to the school for a special assembly. Each student shared why they loved their mom and presented her with an art piece; it was very honoring. The kids then went back to class and the moms had a scrumptious brunch in the foyer.
