FUSE

The 5th graders recently enjoyed the annual 5th grade trip to the Brandon Spring Group Center at Land Between the Lakes.  The group consisted of 41 students, 10 parent chaperones, and 2 teachers on a 3-day and 2-night adventure.  Students participated in tours of the Homeplace 1850 Farm and the Woodlands Nature Station as well as enjoyed various programs including canoeing, learning about beavers, hiking to a beaver marsh, a pond study, wilderness survival training, building survival shelters, and orienteering using a compass and a topographical map to locate specific points.  Students also showcased their talents at the talent show and finished off night two with a bonfire and smores.  The beautiful weather held off long enough for everyone to have a wonderful trip and experience nature and local wildlife while making a lifetime of memories.

Box Tops

This is a reminder that CA collects 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.
