Clarksville Academy - Promoting Academic Excellence, Moral Integrity, Physical Growth, and Civic Responsibility

Lower School News: January 29 – February 2, 2018

1st Grade

First graders had a great time applying their knowledge of common vowel spelling patterns using CVCe with their QR code scavenger hunt. Students wrote the name of each picture, then they scanned the QR code to check their spelling. We have been working on the long i, long a, long e, long u, and long o sounds.


2nd grade

The students used their five senses to describe the hot chocolate they were drinking. The class collaborated together to compose a list of adjectives to describe the yummy drink. The students will use the adjectives to write a descriptive paragraph about hot chocolate.


3rd Grade

Third grade students have been studying the Associative Property of Multiplication using a variety of activities to include dry erase desk problems/drawings, board problems, individual and partner work, and the sharing of their strategies with the class.



The FUSE program had several students participate at the County level of 4-H Competition last week.

4th grader Hadley Hagewood won 1st Place in the County for her poster.  It is now being sent on to the State competition for judging!  Way to go Hadley!

Hadley also won 1st Place in the Montgomery County 4-H speech contest.

5th graders Zoe Brooks and Carmelita Roper participated in the 4H Speech Contest. Zoe placed 2nd and Carmelita placed 3rd! Great job ladies!

Fourth and Fifth grade FUSE students participated in Metric Measurement Labs each day last week. They learned about the importance of the metric system for scientific measurement and practiced using a triple beam balance and measuring volume in graduated cylinders using water displacement.



Kindergarten took advantage of the beautiful weather and enjoyed snack out since before some play time last week. They are looking forward to reaching their 100th day of school soon. Kindergarten students re really writing well. They are learning sentence structure and are writing to describe their mittens they colored. These mittens are displayed in our hallway.

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.
