As the Christmas program comes closer and closer (It’s on the 18th of December) I am presented with the job of decorating the stage. In past years the music department has sold poinsettias to make the stage look festive. This year our theme is giving gifts. In keeping with that theme I would like to decorate the stage with gift bags. As I contemplated what to put in the bags I was given the idea of care packages for our troops overseas. Although we will not be sending the gift bags themselves we will box up the contents with a letter from a child and they will be mailed to specific servicemen and women. Please look over the list below and try to find at least one item to bring in to put in the packages. It really makes a difference for someone far from home to receive a box and a letter from someone who cares. After last year’s mailing many letters came to say “thank you for the gift and the letters of encouragement.” If you don’t have a gift bag I will have some available at school. The items should be at school by Dec. 16. Thank you in advance for your generosity.
In Christ, Mrs. Rubel

Christian Liberty Academy was founded in 1968 by Dr. Paul Lindstrom (1939-2002) in order that children may have greater access to quality Christian Education. The academy programs, beginning at pre-school level and continuing through twelfth grade, are under the direction of board members from the Church of Christian Liberty. The Church of Christian Liberty provides oversight for the Academy as one of its ministries, though students and parents are not required to be members or attend the church. The student body at Christian Liberty Academy is made up of children who attend a variety of Christian churches from throughout the Chicagoland area.
By God's grace, CLA has been able to establish an excellent reputation over the last forty-four years, becoming a preeminent Bible-based traditional education Christian school in the northwest suburbs of Chicago. Christian Liberty Academy is an institution that is dedicated to equipping its students to face the spiritual and academic challenges that will confront them at college, their careers and throughout their lives.
The Academy possesses rigorous academic standards, and employs instructors who have the ability to ensure that each student reaches their full potential. All classes are taught from a biblical perspective, so students will understand how to apply God's Word to every area of life as they seek to build the Kingdom of Christ.
