Summer meals begin on Wednesday, June 2 and end on Wednesday, August 11. We will distribute take-home meals in front of the CAL school every Wednesday from 4 pm to 5 pm. Breakfasts and lunches for five days will be distributed. Please note that if your children are going to attend summer tutoring, there will be NO HOT MEALS ON SITE. All food will be in take-home form only during distribution times. The meals are free for anyone from 1 to 18 years old. One bag of food per child, per pickup, please.
We look forward to the time when we can share our music making with you in person, but for now, here is the link to the 2021 K-6 Virtual Vocal Spring Concert! Please note, the band has been working hard this year as well, but due to copyright laws, the band portion of the concert will be shared with students via their Google Classroom accounts. Thank you for supporting CAL Music!! - Ms. Nannenga https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r5Wu5gs8UZA&ab_channel=ElizabethNannenga
