Science Lab

Second graders have begun investigating the Engineering Design Process by:
Identifying a problem
Trying out the designs and Improving designs.

We began by creating Giant Marble Racers, and students will create their own smaller versions as we continue the EDP next week.



3rd Grade

Third grade students enjoyed a lesson on “Savings” presented by Cumberland Bank and Trust employees, Jessica Fussell and Steven Jones.  The students learned the importance of keeping their money safe, and having long-term goals to save for.  Everyone left with two fun prizes purchased with money used as part of the lesson.  The students reflected by thinking of things they were saving for in the future.



Art Magnets

It’s that time again for the Original Works Magnets and Art Merchandise sale. Through this company you have the option to order merchandise that has your child’s artwork scanned onto it. Please understand this is NOT mandatory purchase, it is simply an event that CA has participated in for so long that most parents and students see it as another CA tradition! You will be receiving packages this week that contain a large magnet and other ordering options. If you wish to keep the magnet please remember to send in your payment. As always you do have to pay for it and can always send it back to me. If you have any questions please email me at and I will get back with you as soon as possible! Thank you again for supporting the arts and traditions here at CA!
