REMINDER: Register for Spring Sports Today!

As the spring season approaches, we just want to remind our CAI athletes that registration for spring sports is already open in FACTS Family Portal under Forms.

At this time, we continue to reevaluate each upcoming season and all signs point to having a spring sports season. So, we are moving forward with the planning and scheduling of the season. If you haven’t already registered and are planning to have a child participate, please be sure to complete the registration TODAY! It will help us with forming schedules, practice calendars and hiring coaches if we know how many kids we have planning to participate.

A couple reminders in order to participate:

  • All athletes must be registered for their sport in FACTS Family Portal as this step puts you on the coach’s roster where you will get more information specific to your sport.
  • All paperwork must be completed before participation (Contact Heather McDonner at hmcdonner@caschools.us if you need any of these forms. If your child participated in a CAI Fall or Winter Sport, these should already be on file):
    • Returners (those with a physical on file from last year) – Health History Update and Consent and Release, Concussion/Sudden Cardiac Arrest Form, COVID-19 Waiver
    • New to Athletics: IHSAA Physical Packet (all pages), Concussion/Sudden Cardiac Arrest Form, COVID-19 Waiver

While things may look a little different, we want to do our part so the kids can play this spring as well! We will continue to provide you with information as we finalize those details. We ask for your patience and flexibility as we do so.

Local Teen and CAL-Southwest Student Opens Self Care Business During Pandemic and Sees Big Success

We are so excited to highlight one of our own students as one of the youngest business owners in our area! Christian Academy of Louisville – Southwest eighth-grader Kayla Marie opened Bubbly Bliss Bar at 2110 Bardstown Road in December and has proved that nothing is impossible with faith and hard work!

Bubbly Bliss Bar by Kayla Marie features a wide variety of all natural bath, beauty and wellness products including candles, teas, cosmetics, bath bombs, soaps and even a men’s grooming line. The store aims to be a happy place for customers. It smells amazing and Kayla herself curates the store’s playlist to feature uplifting music.

After losing her father suddenly in 2015, Kayla was overcome with sadness and anxiety. She leaned on her faith and turned to the things she loved doing to find happiness – making and mixing things, baking and being creative. That’s how the business was born!

Check out this wonderful interview from WDRB and shop online at bubblyblissbarbykaylamarie.com or visit the retail store in the Highlands at 2110 Bardstown Road on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Ms. Richards is ALL IN!

Thank you for all you do for our school. As you have heard many times, the cost of tuition and fees simply does NOT cover the entire cost to educate our students. That is why we have an annual campaign called our ALL IN! campaign and this year has been like no other in our history. We need your help more than ever before to raise the resources needed to operate our schools. The reason we have a $400,000 need is because we strive to keep tuition costs reasonable and affordable to ALL IN! our community.

As you think about how your family will participate in this year’s ALL IN! campaign, please think about all the great teachers we have across all our campuses. Here is an example from our Indiana Campus, Kristi Richards.

“She has gone WAY above and beyond duty to make sure the students can benefit from special area classes. She comes up with unique ways and systems to make things work for the kids. Because of their traveling nature, they are exposed to more students and are at more of a health risk in these times. I really truly admire the huge effort she has made on behalf of our kids!”

You can give online or send in your pledge card when you are ready. Please help us meet the needs of our school. We are asking you to please be “ALL IN!

Thank you and God bless you and our school!

 

Christian Academy Installs New UV Air Purification System to Help Combat COVID-19

Christian Academy School System has just installed pūrGenix’s® advanced ultraviolet air purification systems in both their English Station and New Albany campuses to help fight the spread of germs and create healthier and safer environments for faculty and students to learn, work and collaborate.

Today, more than ever, people have realized that outdated, ill-equipped buildings impact their health and safety. Traditional building air systems were not designed with people’s health and safety in mind, nor were they designed to prevent the spread of germs and disease.

With the help of Lexington-based pūrGenix’s® state-of-the-art ultraviolet light technology, these new systems will purify air, helping kill dangerous germs that are normally left to circulate, untreated, within the schools.

Christian Academy is the first secondary school in the country to install the pūrGenix® technology. With this equipment, Christian Academy will be designated as a pūrBuilding™ – a building with air systems designed to help prevent the spread of germs.

pūrGenix® is one of the nation’s leaders in UV Air Purifcation technology. With over 10 years of experience and more than 600 installations, pūrGenix® has achieved dramatic results in the most demanding environments. Hospitals using the pūrGenix® technology, such as Harrison Memorial in Cynthiana, KY, have risen to be among the nation’s leading hospitals in infection prevention. Since installing the pūrGenix® technology in 2017, Harrison Memorial has seen amazing results, such as zero bloodstream infections, zero surgical site infections and zero cases of hospital-acquired pneumonia.

The key to the pūrGenix® technology is that it helps prevent dangerous germs from circulating throughout the building via the building’s air Handling Systems. Traditional air filtration systems allow germs to pass through – putting everyone at risk. Air handling systems are cool dark, damp places, making them the perfect breeding ground for dangerous germs. Air systems then spread these germs throughout the building, contaminating newly cleaned surfaces.

The pūrGenix® technology uses Ultraviolet C-band energy, which is a high-frequency energy (similar to what protects us in the ozone) that breaks down the DNA or RNA inside germs, killing germs and preventing them from replicating.

With this installation, Christian Academy will provide a safer and healthier environment for students to learn and collaborate.

According to Executive Director Moe Lundrigan, “We’ve always looked at ways to make our physical environment safer, but we did not anticipate this degree of a biological/environmental need. But God did. We hired Steve French as our facilities director, little realizing how important his background would be.”

Steve French brought almost 40 years of facilities management and 30 of those years were in hospitals, including Jewish and St. Mary’s healthcare. With a degree in Biomedical Engineering (from the UofL Speed School), he was indeed in the “right place at the right time.”

“I’ve been familiar with Purgenix’s success in the health field and they became the perfect fit for our larger campuses,” said French. “Combined with personal conduct of our students and staff (masks, social distancing, hand washing and contact tracing), this purification system adds to our levels of safety and precaution necessary in this challenging time. We’re excited and blessed to be able to offer this to our students and staff.”

“At pūrGenix® our mission is to create healthier, places to work, learn, collaborate, and heal. We are excited to help a forward-thinking school like Christian Academy get their students and faculty back in their building safely. Health, mind and soul are important for everyone and Christian Academy made the health and safety of their students and faculty a priority when they invested in becoming a pūrBuilding™” says Sam Perkins, CEO pūrGenix®.
