Chatter Coppell Early Childhood Association Volume 18 Issue 2

Hello, CECA Parents! It’s that time! Summer is coming to an end, school will be starting again soon, and CECA will be having our annual Membership Drive. We hope you will join us to see some old friends and maybe meet a couple of new friends, too. Mingle and chat as your little one(s) run crazy around The Ark! Do you know someone who could really use a group like CECA? Pass the information along, everyone is welcome! There are many stages of parenting with equal levels of excitement and challenges. CECA is an organization where parents come together to build relationships in which we support each other through every stage. We hope you will join us again this year and spread the word!

Hope to see you soon!

Stephanie Branum

CECA President

Jennings Wyatt Reynolds

We wish to offer our heartfelt condolences to Kristin & Robert Reynolds and their family. Kristin delivered their baby boy Jennings Wyatt Reynolds via emergency C-section on Monday, June 25th, at 11:11am, weighing 2lbs 15oz. Unfortunately, due to complications related to his underdeveloped lungs, he earned his angel wings in the early morning hours of June 26th. Please join CECA in showing our love to Kristin and her family at this time. Please email Cassie at if you would like to provide assistance.
