New Service Hours Tracking App
CVCA students are now using a new digital method to track and verify their service hours. Parents/guardians will now receive texts (from a 734 area code) or emails (from Helper Helper) asking them to verify their student’s hours. They will need to review the hours the student submitted and select either “approve” or “reject.” Any questions about the hours should be addressed before pressing the approval or rejection buttons. The Helper Helper app automatically creates a running portfolio of a student’s service hours. Then, on each due date (December 5 for this semester) only hours verified by a parent/guardian on the app will be counted toward their grade. Students serving 8 or more hours between May and December 5, 2017 will receive a passing grade for this semester. Parents, please encourage your student to download the Helper Helper phone app. It is also available on their Chromebook at app.helperhelper.com. Students should log and verify their hours on the app each time they serve.

CVCA partners with several Christian elementary schools to offer our Admissions Entrance Exam in a convenient way.

The exam will be offered at these locations:

CVCA’s Christmas Outreach
Student Leadership Council is excited to lead CVCA’s annual Christmas outreach to provide items for Urban Vision, an Akron community ministry founded by a CVCA graduate. Neighborhood children who participate in Urban Vision’s programs and Bible studies have the opportunity to earn “UV bucks” for attendance, good behavior, and good and improved grades. The children learn responsibility and can use their “bucks” to purchase Christmas gifts for family and friends at the Urban Vision Christmas Store. Our Connections groups will collect items such as toys, household goods, and personal items. CVCA students will be assigned their gift item this week and should bring it to their Homeroom class on Friday, December 8. All gifts are in a $10.00 range. Questions about gifts or Urban Vision can be directed to Mrs. McMullen.
