Lower School News: February 27 – March 3, 2017

Science Lab

Second graders create a mock oil spill to see the effect on animal life. Using bird feathers and vegetable oil we attempted to clean the feathers after they were exposed to our “oil spill”.

First graders demonstrate planet distances using a Planetary Tape Measure.  They recognize the farthest planets from the sun and learn about Rotation and Revolution.

Lower School had a great week with our hockey unit. Nashville Predators watch out!



Officer Granderson talked to 5th grade about dealing with bullies, having integrity, and managing feelings like frustration and anger in positive ways. They had a lot of fun and also learned a lot!

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.
