Kite Day

Students were to use the Engineering Design Process to construct an original kite. Mrs. Goad provided the students with different websites, ideas, and designs to help guide them in designing a kite that would fly. On Friday, May 9th, the 6th graders walked to the large field near the river to test fly the kites.

CA Yearbooks

We are looking forward to seeing everyone at the Yearbook Celebration this afternoon during 7th period. As an added bonus to the 2014 yearbook, we have added a video element that can be utilized through the Aurasma App (many of you used this last week during the 8th grade Wax Museum exhibit). This free App (search for and download Aurasma) allows you to use the viewfinder once the app is opened to focus on various pictures within the yearbook and enjoy a moment from the school year. Please share the following instructions with your students so they can use their iPads/phones to experience the yearbook too!

FCA will be collecting used baseball and softball gloves until the end of the school year. These gloves will be used for a Sports Mission trip this summer in Jamaica. Please drop off with Mrs. Turnage.

 

Box Tops & Campbell’s Labels

This is a reminder that CA collects Campbell’s labels and Box Tops through our CAA. The money raised from this project funds various school improvement projects. Last year we raised over $2000 through the Box Tops program alone! Please turn yours into your child’s teacher or Ms. Turnage in the front office.
