We had so much fun at the C.A.R.E. Brunch!

C.A.R.E. is an amazing organization that gives back tremendously to the Celina schools and our community.
What are some of the projects C.A.R.E. is involved in?

C.A.R.E. provided Tumblebook Reading Software to CES
C.A.R.E. donated monies to CIS to be used for academic incentives
C.A.R.E. purchased iPods and iPads to be used at CMS for academic purposes
C.A.R.E. purchased graphing calculators for student use at CHS.

Last year C.A.R.E. gave over $60,000 in college scholarships to 84 graduating seniors.  This was a record number of applicants and it reflects that the Celina school district is growing and so is the needs of the students.

For more information or how to get involved:

John and Kelley Matthews
Nate, Jack, Maggie and Gabriel

The Mathews family was invited to Celina by the school board.  John is the new middle school principal. He has really enjoyed getting to know the teachers and students as he pursues excellence in Celina education. He also volunteers with the Texas State Guard as a chaplain. We met 18 years ago while both students at Dallas Seminary and will celebrate 17 years of marriage in May. I've worked in women's ministry but am currently an editor for, a new online social network that is kind of like a Christian Facebook but with a lot of content resources as well. I work from home most days and write book reviews in my "free" time. Our three older children have adapted very well to their new Bobcat identity (though they pled neutrality during the first football game against Melissa, their former school). Nate, 7th grade, is in his dad's building but doesn't seem to mind. Jack is in the 4th grade, while Maggie is at CES in the 2nd grade. Gabriel, our 4-year-old, is enjoying the Friendship Corner preschool at 1st Methodist in downtown Celina. We still commute from Anna but are doing our best to move to Celina. 



Breakfast and shopping at Sunny Paige and then to Decorator's Warehouse for some holiday inspiration

I had never attended an event with the Celina Newcomers until I heard about a cooking class being held by Nelson Carter.  The event started out with learning how to make a homemade Bolognese sauce.  Nelson is a talented cook who has lived in Italy and was taught by the locals how to create this amazing red sauce.  As we sipped our wine and let the sauce simmer, he went on to show us how to make the most delicious Tiramisu I have ever tasted.  He explained the many steps and gave us several "tricks" to make this dessert.  The company I enjoyed as we dipped our lady fingers into the coffee/rum mixture was wonderful.  I have lived in Celina for 6 years and had to ask myself where all these incredible women had been.  I guess I now know, they have been getting together for years as the Celina Newcomer group!  We continued on with making Limoncello, a delightful after dinner drink that takes 6 months to cure.  Also on the menu was stuffed zucchini with a balsamic vinegar reduction that was as fancy as it was delicious.  As the cooking instruction came to an end, we all sat down to an incredible meal and great fellowship...Paula Jowers
