Cross Country

Congratulations to Finn Shea, Abagale Hay and Myrtle Yates for making it to the Middle School State Cross Country tournament.  They will compete this Saturday.

Art

Our Intermediate School Creative Art class went on a field trip to the Frist Center for Visual Arts, to see the Ancestral Modern:Australian Aboriginal Art Exhibit. To get ready for the exhibit, we researched Aboriginal art and created a “dot” painting. The exhibit contained many different paintings on canvas, bark paintings, a woven grass sculpture and a short viewing about different influential Aboriginal artist. After touring the exhibit, the students got to participate in Art Quest, a hands-on exhibit where kids and adults get to experiment with a variety of art processes and techniques.

The Annual Fall Festival is right around the corner on October 28!  It will take place from 10AM-3PM on CA’s main campus.  The day is filled with a Fun Run, vendor booths, a silent auction, carnival games and more.  This year we will again have our Scarecrow & Pumpkin decorating contests.  We invite everyone to participate.
