Clarksville Academy - Promoting Academic Excellence, Moral Integrity, Physical Growth, and Civic Responsibility

Lower School News: April 30 – May 4, 2018

3rd Grade

The third graders held a bake sale to raise money for the Heifer Organization. After studying a unit on Africa, the students decided they would raise money  to sponsor a gift of a goat to help families in Africa.  They raised enough money to purchase four goats and a flock of chickens to send to Africa.

Third graders had the pleasure of having APSU students share a lesson on “beekeeping”.  Students learned about the history of bees, their specific roles, the process of how bees produce honey, and why bees are so important to us.

 

Science Lab News

First, Second, and Third graders planted garden seed this week as we focused on “CA Says EVERYDAY is Earth Day”.  We discussed ways we can Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle. We determined ways we recycle at school, and ways we help at home.

 

FUSE

FUSE students recently submitted entries to the 4H State Piggy Bank Pageant which is a program to promote saving money and spending wisely.  For Montgomery County, 5th grader, Sarah Dixon, won 3rd place in the Animal category and 1st place for 5th grade overall.  4th grader, Maggie Dixon, won 3rd place in the Piggy category.  Also, 5th grader, Katherine Black, was a top 6 pick for the Piggy category with her piggy bank, Reba.  Please go to the following link to vote for Sarah’s gray cat ‘piggy’ bank to win 5th grade overall for the state of Tennessee.  Vote at the following link through Monday, April 30:  http://voteforthepig.tennessee.edu/5th-grade/   Vote as many times as you’d like!  Great job ladies!

CAA

Clarksville Academy Association (CAA) is the parent volunteer association of Clarksville Academy. There are many opportunities throughout the school year for parents, guardians, and grandparents to get involved by volunteering your time and/or contributions. We certainly hope you will join us in making CA an even greater place for our children, faculty and staff!  Please contact Beth Mabry on how to get involved. bethfmabry@gmail.com.

 

Teacher Treats

Each grade level will have the opportunity one time during the school year to provide Teacher Treats. You may contribute snacks, treats, drinks or a monetary donation to help purchase treats. Please watch for your grade’s week and contact your representative.

 

Box Top Contest

The CAA invites everyone to participate in our Box Tops Contest this year! When you turn in your Box Tops please label the baggie with your student’s name, grade and teacher (Lower School). A tally will be kept of all box top returns and a Pizza party will be awarded to the class with the most labels returned!
