Keep Up With What's Happening at School
Parents and supporters of CAL, now you can keep up with what's happening at our school anywhere, anytime, right from your smart phone with SchoolWay (formerly School Connect). SchoolWay is a free mobile app that enables you to stay connected to your student's school and have school information sent directly to you, wherever and whenever you need it. Whether it's game day scores, updates on the school play, access to grade books, emergency notifications or even classroom reminders from your teachers' SchoolWay makes all this information available from one place. Anyone with a smart phone can download SchoolWay from the Apple and Android app stores for free. With the help of Jostens, our school is proud to introduce this helpful app to you.
