Grammar, Logic and High School students and teachers have chapel services once a month. The purpose of chapel is to bring students together for a time of corporate worship and a message that focuses on the greatness of God and His work in our lives in a way that would be applicable to Coram Deo students. This time is designed to heighten our awareness of Christ and integrate Him more into our everyday lives.
In Collin County we have several ways for parents to be involved and build community with the teachers and each other. The best way to do this is through the PTF, Parent Teacher Fellowship. The PTF serves CDA in three primary ways. First, they serve as a volunteer base for many of the activities that happen in the classrooms, such as Room Moms, class parties, and Hot Lunch service. Secondly, they help equip the school through fundraising. They strive to make our fundraisers fun for the students, but also easy on the parents. Our most successful is the Hot Lunch program. We use caterers, like Chick-fil-A, that the children like, and the parents look forward to not having to make a lunch one day a week! Lastly, and most importantly, our PTF organizes a monthly prayer meeting to pray for the school – students, faculty and administrators. If you are an enrolled family at the Collin County campus, you are already a member of the PTF, so come and join us!
Dust off the clubs and grab 3 friends or get the family together and come play as a foursome in the 5th edition of the Collin County Scramble Golf Tournament. This year's tournament will be played on March 31st at Firewheel Golf Club on the Lakes Course. There will be awesome food from Desperados Mexican catered in for lunch and lots of fun guaranteed.
This event is a great community builder and raises support for our athletics department and our teams. So, if you are interested in sponsoring the event or buying a foursome or individual spot, go to the link below and make it happen! All the funds raised go to support our amazing student-athletes!
I’d like to personally thank everyone for their help these past few months with event and games setup/tear down. The help I’ve received from our students and parents alike has been such a blessing to me. I am really impressed with your servants' hearts and attitude to bless our school with your service by the simple act of stacking chairs or folding up lunch tables, for example. The work I (and Coach Koop) do in Facilities is considered a support service position and is typically behind the scenes, but it is very important for any organization to operate efficiently. I like to think of my job as a good anchor holding up a beautiful piece of art for all to see. Few people think about the anchor, but if it wasn’t for the anchor, the art would be on the ground and could possibly get trampled on (especially in our hallways 😊). The anchor holds strong, day in and day out never wanting accolades or praise but desires to hold something else up for all to see. This school and her staff are beautiful. My hope is that I will continue to hold her up for the all the world to see her beauty as she (CDA) continues to serve our Lord. May God continue to bless you and your families as you serve Him with your whole heart.
For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many. Mark 10:45 ESV
