Lower School News for May 6-12, 2013

Field Trip

Many of our lower school students will travel to Ft. Defiance in Clarksville this week to visit with none other than Honest Abe Lincoln! On Thursday, May 9 our students will travel to Ft. Defiance and hear from Abe himself and get a chance to visit the Fort. This will be a memorable experience for your child! Those who ordered school lunch will receive this box lunch style and others should bring a completely disposable lunch for mealtime on the grounds!

 

Third Grade

Third Graders have been working hard on their models of Native American Dwelling Places.  The models will be on full display this Wednesday the 8th.  Be sure to stop by and marvel at this glimpse of history!  We have such CREATIVE minds in 3rd grade! Here are a few examples of their work…

Field Day

Field Day is such an exciting day for our students. Lower School will have field day on May 16. Students will come to main campus and then be shuttled out to the field. Please dress your child appropriately with sunscreen, a beach towel for sitting on, a hat and a bottled water with their name on it.

 

Absentee Reminder

A reminder to all parents, if your child is going to be absent or is absent due to illness, we ask that you notify the school. Thank you.

 

Reminder

Please remember in the morning there is no entering campus from the main entrance on 2nd Street. All cars should enter on Anderson Drive or at the lower entrance on 2nd street. It is important to keep the traffic flow going in the right direction to avoid accidents. When visiting campus, we remind you that the row of parking directly in front of school and the first two rows near the Cougar Cruisers are reserved faculty/staff spaces. We ask all parents and guests to park on the hill to the right of the school. Thank you.

 

R.A.C.K.

This week your children have been introduced to a new program at Clarksville Academy, the R.A.C.K. Club. The Random Acts of Cougar Kindness Club is an opportunity for your child to be “caught” doing random acts of kindness! Teachers and staff will be watching for examples of good citizenship and character that go above and beyond. Students could then be rewarded with a ticket to be placed in a jar in the classroom. Once a month these tickets will be collected and small rewards will be distributed. Also, group pictures will be taken and displayed on the R.A.C.K. Club board outside the lunchroom. We can’t wait to recognize our Cougars as proud members of the R.A.C.K. Club!

 

Science Fun

Our lower school science classes are participating in an experiment of the week with Mrs. Askew. Throughout the semester she will video these and we will post them on our Clarksville Academy YouTube Channel. We encourage you to go out and watch these videos weekly.

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 $1500 through the Box Tops program alone! Please turn yours into your child’s teacher or Ms. Turnage in the front office.
