Lower School Science Lab
This week in Science lab, First Graders learned the words “classify”, “observe”, and “specimen”. Students examined nuts and seed specimen in ziplock baggies. We used goggles, gloves, and smocks. Then we classified plastic insects into groups with similar characteristics. We observed seeds that had been classified by type. Over the next few weeks we will be learning what a scientist does: observe, predict, measure, compare, classify, and infer.
After School Enrichment Program
CA is proud to announce our After School Enrichment Program. Throughout the year we will continue to add a variety of activities to the schedule. These may include (but are not limited to) courses in fitness, cursive writing, music lessons, art, and more. Be sure to bookmark this site and check it often!
To kick off our fall programs we have 2 fun offerings. Coach Danny Magrans will offer a twice weekly fitness program for our 4th through 12th grade students. This comprehensive program will strengthen your child’s body while teaching them the proper fitness techniques. For more information visit the link below.
Mrs. Marla Clemments will begin teaching a cursive writing course in September. This month-long course will offer second and third grade students an introduction to beautiful art of cursive writing and will strengthen our fourth graders skills. Cursive is a skill taught in our third grade classes at CA so this is a great way to reinforce those skills! For more information visit our link below.
Check the site often as updates happen weekly.
The third graders did an excellent job reading this summer.

Lower School Art News
Welcome back Cougars! I had a wonderful summer and I hope you and your family did too! As we start this new school year, I just wanted to remind you of a few things that are very important to our Art program. Even though we wear aprons in the art room, messes and stains still occur often, even for me! When your child has art as an Enrichment, be thoughtful about what they wear on those day. As always, we are looking for donations! Wipes , GermX, and Kleenex are always needed in the art room. Thank you for always supporting the Art program at CA and remember to ask your children what they are learning and doing in the art room!
We encourage you to download our mobile app from the App Store. We are currently only available on Apple products. This app will provide wonderful updates about what is going on at our school.
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.
