Dear CBA parents, I write this email with a full heart! God started this school 6.5 years ago in December 2014.

CBA's 3rd and 4th grade class is thankful to the DNR ACE Basin Estuarine Research Team and Water Mission for sharing their knowledge of natural resources and wildlife with them! The class recently visited the ACE Basin Estuarine Research Center on James Island as part of their project-based learning unit on endangered species, and friends from Water Mission also visited the class this spring.
CBA would like to thank Mr. Adair and Bugby Farm and Melissa and her team at the Goatery for a fun-filled family field trip last Saturday! It was a beautiful sunny day, and what a joy to take in the breathtaking views of the Lowcountry while learning about strawberries, goats, chickens, and all of the action that takes place on the farms. CBA students enjoyed picking strawberries by the bucket and collecting eggs from the hens! We are so grateful for all of the families who came to make this a very special day.
