Don’t miss the Royal Theatre’s Fall Play – November 16-17
The Royal Theatre will present the comedy The Best Laid Plans on Friday and Saturday, November 16-17. This unusually hysterical spy-mystery-based comedy revolves around an aging author, Ada Westbrook, who is called upon to act as a liaison between our government and enemy powers while she is vacationing in Jamaica. When Ada, a spy novelist, is asked to recover a set of top-secret plans, chaos erupts as friends, foes, spies, and agents all converge on her Caribbean bungalow. Who is friend? Who is foe? Who will discover the hidden plans?
Tickets can be purchased at iTickets.com. A general admission preview performance will be held on November 15 at 6:00 p.m.

Our middle school will present The Pirate Princess on Wednesday, November 14 at 6:00 p.m. Princess Alwida is not happy. Her castle is lame and her parents are always telling her what to do. In search of adventure, Alwida runs away from home and runs right into Alf, the prince of a nearby country. Is this the adventure Alwida has been searching for? Is the grass greener on the other side? Come along on a journey of adventure, laughter, and sword fighting to see if it turns out to be true.
General admission tickets will be for sale at the door.

Workshops will cover many topics from Creativity in Worship, an Escape Room, Dance and Choreography, The Basics of Sewing, and much much more.
What is a C7 Day? The CVCA middle school program engages students through Christ-centered learning, challenging them to develop genuine Curiosity, strong Critical thinking, Collaboration skills, Creativity, effective Communication, and Gospel-focused Compassion. We collectively refer to these objectives as the C7 Experience and work toward them in our classrooms as well as on special C7 days scattered throughout the academic year.

Several students still have not submitted or verified their eight hours. Please talk to your student(s) to see if they have submitted any hours that have not been validated. (Several parents have not validated them electronically.) There is a one-day delay between when students submit hours on the app and when you receive the request. Sixth and seventh graders will earn four hours on their group trips this semester, so they will need at least four additional hours.
