Wednesday is the final day of our re enrollment.  That means Wednesday is the last day to secure a spot for next year before open enrollment begins. We will process reenrollment applications received after April 27, 2015  along with new student applications on a first come/first served basis.  Currently, we have several new student applications waiting to be processed.  Additionally, as you may know, in the past we have had a wait-list, and there is a very good possibility that we will have several classes with wait-lists next year.  So, please do not forget to submit your re enrollment paper work as soon as possible.

So far, we will be having representatives from McMinn County Sheriff’s Department, Clearwater and McMinn Rural Fire Departments, McMinn Rescue Squad, LifeStar, AMR, and, TBI, Forestry, East TN Children’s Hospital and many more. We have tried to include everyone we can think of in the emergency profession. We have stations set up for each department so the students can ask questions and some departments have different activities the students can participate in. This is an all day, outside event. Students and families are able to get up close and personal to a lot of emergency equipment and experience how it all works and who does what in the case of an emergency. They get to look inside the vehicles, crawl in and out of obstacle courses, maze trailers, mock wrecks, etc.

Saturday, May 7th, CLA will be hosting the 1st Annual Block Party in Market Square, Downtown Athens. This will be a  Spring school fundraiser.

Tickets for the Pancake Breakfast will be going on sale soon. If anyone is interested in participating  in this event as a 5K  participant or a booth vendor, please visit the website under 5K and Vendor Info. We look forward to  a very fun filled day!

We now have pancake tickets ($5) and the regular event tickets!  Feel free to stop buy and purchase yours when it is convenient for you.  We will be set up in the Welcome Center on Tuesdays and Thursdays from now until the BLOCK PARTY for the presale items.  Presale tickets are sold 50 for $45 and 100 for $90.
Parents should have received 2 emails from Mrs. Dake  to sign up for the spots we need filled (working or donating).  This is the easiest way to know who is where and what you would like to do.  Once the spots are filled you will not be able to sign up.
