Calvary Christian Academy principal Scott Norman said he was elated by the turnout at the institution’s yard sale, which drew a big crowd and sold out most of the school’s desks and furniture on its first week.
CCA shut down early this month due to the continued decline in enrollment. This prompted the school to put almost everything on sale in order to terminate all its remaining expenditures and obligations. The sale began on June 18 and will run through July 3.
Norman expressed appreciation yesterday to the support extended by families and community members who participate in the yard sale. On the first week of the yard sale alone, all filing cabinets, bookshelves, and tables were sold.
He said more school materials and supplies are up for grabs-a bunch of brand new schoolbooks and library materials, including the school’s overhead projectors, and other equipment. Norman said that items on sale may be used in homes, offices, and schools.
Norman hinted that the school may extend the yard sale to the week after the Liberation Day festivities.
He also announced that CCA teachers who will relocate outside the CNMI will set up a major leaving-island sale on Saturday from 7am through 12pm at the CCA campus.
Norman invited the members of the public to visit the school until the sales last. All proceeds will be used in closing out the institution.
Norman said many students are now in the process of transferring to other schools. CCA, he said, is providing full assistance to ensure a smooth transition.
The institution has been around for nearly 30 years.
