Kindergarten

This year the Kindergarten Classes are having fun learning to play hand bells. The Kristal Bell Method has allowed the students to play music chords using a color coded system. What an amazing way to instill the love of music in our students!
You can see the confidence grow as they learn to watch for their color and when to start and stop. Their hard work has paid off and they will be performing in the Lower School Christmas Production an arrangement of Jingle Bells.

Third Grade

Third graders have been studying food chains, food webs, ecosystems and plant/animal relationships. Students worked in cooperative groups in a game of survival. Students/teams were assigned a predator and had to work in teams to find specific prey (with a certain amount in mind to survive). They had to be stealthy, hunt and capture their prey. After capturing their prey, teams recorded all of their prey, location of prey and how many of each animal was captured. Students collaborated and recorded their findings on a predator data collection log.

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.
