Lower School News: February 26 – March 2, 2018

3rd Grade

Mrs. Williams’ third graders are dissecting Owl Pellets after reading “Poppy”.  A book about a Great Horned Owl and a family of mice trying survive in the forest.

 

Chickens

The eggs have arrived to Mrs. Williams’ classroom.  Twenty days from now we hope to have a pen full of chickens!  Each year this is a favorite lesson for our students!

 

Dr. Suess Week

Don’t forget this is Dr Suess week!  Today was silly sock day, Tuesday is wear a mustache day, Wednesday is Wacky Hair or Wear a Hat Day, Thursday we ask you wear black, white and red, and finally Friday, wear red or blue or maybe a shirt with a fish or two!

 

Help for Victims

United Way is working with our local community partners to provide support and resources to families affected by tornado damage.  Although it’s short notice, below is an immediate opportunity for those who wish to help.  Please share with your networks as this is a quick turn-around, but will be incredibly beneficial to those rebuilding/refurnishing their homes, clothes, food and belongings.

In partnership with American Red Cross of Tennessee River and LifePoint Church, United Way of the Greater Clarksville Region is collecting $25 Visa Gift Cards for local families whose homes were damaged or destroyed by this weekend’s tornado. Gift cards can be dropped off at the United Way office (529 N. Second Street, Clarksville) by 4:30pm today (Monday, 2/26/18) and will be presented to the families this evening at a dinner provided for them by LifePoint.

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!
