5th Grade Readers’ Theater

Fifth Graders became actors as they performed in our annual Reader’s Theater plays. A total of six plays were performed for parents and family members which enriched reading, math, history, and science skills. The students were responsible for memorizing their lines, creating their costumes and props, and choreographing their movements.

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!

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.
