Electives… Educational and Fun!

At Classical Charter Schools of America, we value extracurricular activities as part of a well-rounded education. Electives provide many educational opportunities that allow students to learn skills, work together, and sometimes even compete. Our electives include the fine arts, life skills, and academic and athletic competitions. Each year our CCS-America Middle School students participate in at least two electives. During winter break, they have the opportunity to stay where they are or switch to a new elective. This allows students to partake in a variety of electives to explore their interests. If you have any questions about our elective programs, please contact our Dean of Resources and electives, Mrs. LaFave at jlafave@rogerbacon.net.

Employees Celebrate Good Times and Invite You to Join Our Team

The Roger Bacon Academy hosted, celebrated, and honored its 371 employees with a fun-filled night of dancing, dinner, and friendship March 26 at the Wilmington Convention Center. This tradition has occurred every other year since CCS-Leland’s opening in 1999. During the event, employees were acknowledged for their years of dedicated service and the growing list of names is a testament both to The Roger Bacon Academy’s commitment to its employees and the employees’ commitment to our mission and to CCS-America students. Teachers of high growth were recognized, as well as the schools’ Teachers of the Year. Not only were there drawings for gift cards throughout the evening; but each guest received a golf umbrella and polo shirt as a party favor to end the night.  “This is my fifth gala and each time it is fun to see the event grow in size, the same way our schools have grown over the years!” exclaimed, Dean Heather Greco.  Please consider joining our team for the upcoming 2022-2023 school year!

Staff Spotlight

All four CCS-America schools recently named their Teacher of the Year, Beginning Teacher of the Year, and Teacher Assistant of the Year, all of whom were honored at RBA’s Gala on March 26. The Teachers of the Year are nominated by their colleagues for embodying the high ideals of The Roger Bacon Academy. At CCS-America schools, we are fortunate to have a richly-talented group of individuals who serve as excellent role models for our students. This makes the awards highly competitive, and we are so proud to recognize these remarkable teachers.

I Pledge to Keep Myself Healthy in Body, Mind, and Spirit

Students recite these words every morning in The School Pledge. However, it is important to go beyond reciting and apply these words to daily life. Especially as students approach the end-of-grade (EOG) testing period, self-care makes all the difference in handling school and personal stressors. Keeping students and ourselves healthy in body, mind, and spirit is, as The Pledge states, staying physically fit, mentally awake, and morally straight. How can we do this? Follow these steps for a great start: Get an adequate amount of sleep. Eat a healthy breakfast. Have a technology “curfew”. Encourage students to talk to a parent, trusted adult, or friend. Have FUN! As stressful as testing and school can be, encourage your student to participate in activities that bring them joy.
