I posted the below message in the week before Irma hit our beloved SW Florida area. To update, Irma came ashore on September 10th, 2017 for her second time in Florida at Marco Island.  Please see my Blog Post for the details of how we fared. 

Cheerful Heart Academy is still in business. Please remember that this is a one woman show and that woman still homeschools her own child and has a family - I will get back to you as soon as I possibly can. If I don't get back to you within two weeks after you've contacted me, (unless it's an emergency) please try again. Some of our services are still not working properly here and it's very possible that I may have just not seen or heard your message. 

Again, thank you all for your patience - and please keep praying for all of us in the state of Florida. Many of us have a long road of recovery ahead of us.

Cheerful Heart Academy is in the current 'cone of uncertainty' of Hurricane Irma. The physical location of the school records is located in Naples, Florida, which is on the Southwest coast of the peninsula. All records have been backed up on a computer, an external hard drive, and a USB memory stick and will be taken with the owner if evacuation occurs. 

If you are trying to reach CHA, or have been trying to reach CHA over the past few days, we have been in hurricane preparation mode. Please understand that it may be next week before I'm able to get back to you, but I will get to every email and phone call at some point within the next two weeks. If you have contacted CHA via phone or email and have not heard from Lynda at CHA by September 21st, please contact again.

Thank you all for your patience.

Please pray with me for protection for all of us in the state of Florida.

A few years ago, someone enrolled their child in Cheerful Heart Academy and told me that they were referred by someone who was already enrolled. I was so excited to hear that!!

In fact, I was so excited that I decided to make it a policy that if you refer someone to Cheerful Heart Academy, and they sign their student(s) up with CHA (and tell me that you referred them!), I will give you $5.00 off your next year's tuition.

And, I am not limiting it to one time only. You can manage to get your next year free if you refer enough people (and they tell me that you've referred them). That’s $5 for each family that signs up and puts your name in the “other” box on the registration form!!

Please ask your friends to put that they were referred by you on their registration form in the "How did you hear about us?" part.

If you need some Cheerful Heart Academy business cards or flyers to give to people, just let me know and I will drop some into the mail for you. 

If you have any questions, or comments, please don't hesitate to contact me!
