Distinctively CHA

Even Better

2021 Black History Week

February 8-12 was the second annual Black History Week at CHA. Each One Reach One (E1R1) hosted the week. There were bulletin boards highlighting the accomplishments of Christian African Americans. There were announcements sharing stories of key individuals who God has used to impact our world for His glory. President Landon Crosby began working in the fall to have Mr. Andre Levrone as our guest speaker. Mr. Levrone was a former NFL player who is a bold believer in Christ. He spoke at the chapel on February 11 and reminded the students of where their true identity is found. He was approachable and wise. The entire week was even better than E1R1 could have ever planned.

God’s sovereignty and goodness are constant reminders that He has even better plans than what we can see. Our distance learning experience from the spring of 2020 allowed for CHA to establish a strong option for online learning when in-person classes are not an option. We are incredibly blessed by teachers and families who diligently worked to make last week a productive learning experience. The learning that occurred on those snow days was even better than any of us could have imagined one year ago. 

The first of the five Heritage Dinners at Hidden Trails Country Club was supposed to be on February 18. As the snow raged on, our plans were redirected. Isn’t it good to know that God’s plan is even better than our plan? There are four more dinners scheduled — March 4, March 25, April 8, and April 22. We would love for you to attend. As you know, we have always done a large Heritage Banquet. We are praying that once again, these Heritage Dinners will be even better than we ever prayed for or could have imagined. Our desire is for all to come and hear what God is doing at CHA and how they can be a part of this God-sized vision. When you register, if you would like to sit with your teacher, please make sure to select the date that your teacher will be attending and then click the teacher name in the “I was invited by” box.

We have been blessed to receive a donation to underwrite the Heritage Dinners in honor of the Bullard Family in remembrance of Mr. Ralph Bullard. This generosity allows for all ticket sales to be designated to the fund of their choice at the banquet and will be considered a tax-deductible gift. One option for giving is the Heritage Fund which goes towards the internal academic needs of the school. Ralph Bullard Training Facility Fund monies will go towards the building of a new practice gym facility. The Excellence Fund is for undesignated gifts. If you cannot attend one of the dinners but would like to give towards one of these funds, please use this link.

Generosity

Heritage Dinners 2021

Mr. Ralph Bullard, CHA’s patriarch from 1973-2020, annually read the story, “The Nickel That Laughed” to the elementary school. He was known for saying that “frugalness allows giving.” Whether it is time or money, resources are a limited supply. As Americans, we are blessed with many liberties from religious liberty to economic liberty. We have the personal liberty to give to those in need as well as support initiatives that align with our values.

We are hosting five Heritage Dinners at Hidden Trails Country Club on February 18, March 4, March 25, April 8, and April 22. Faculty members will be contacting their homeroom parents to invite them to sit with them at one of these events. When you register, if you would like to sit with your teacher, please make sure to select the date that your teacher will be attending and then click the teacher name in the “I was invited by” box.

One option for giving is the Heritage Fund which goes towards the internal academic needs of the school.

Lights, Camera, Action!

February 01, 2021

Senior Boys

Last week, CHA students celebrated homecoming. The theme was “Lights, Camera, Action.” From Star Wars to Toy Story, students adorned the halls with decorations and wore creative attire. Over the last year, so many things have been stilled. I am so thankful that the lights are on at CHA, there are people to pose for pictures, and there is action to enjoy. What a gift it is to be CHA!

During the month of February, the action continues. On February 16, from 7:15 AM — 7:50 AM, CHA is hosting a Pastor Appreciation Breakfast. The event will be held in the cafeteria. The event is free. Students are encouraged to invite their church's pastor (senior, lead, youth, children’s, worship etc.) to the event. We understand that there are several students who may share the same pastor. The first family to register their pastor will be allowed to attend the light breakfast with their church pastor. All siblings in the first family to register may attend the event with their pastor. Mrs. Dawn Pruitt will notify any families for whom a pastor has been previously registered. Following the Pastor Appreciation Breakfast, all guests are invited to stay for a simulcast of the Oklahoma Governor’s Virtual Prayer Event from 8:00 AM — 8:30 AM in CHA’s auditorium. If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Dawn Pruitt at 672-1787, ext 204 or dpruitt@cha.org. The deadline to register your pastor is Friday, February 12.

You may register your pastor at the following link: Pastor Appreciation Breakfast

All pastors, parents, and patrons of CHA are encouraged to register for the simulcast of the Governor’s Virtual Prayer Event.
