Lower School News for December 3 – 9, 2012

1st Grade Pet Show

Join us Wednesday, December 5 at 8:30 a.m. for the Annual 1st Grade Pet Show.  This is a lifelong memory for our students and we invite parents and friends to join us for the exciting program.


2nd Grade

Dr. Chad Brooks, microbiologist at APSU and father of Max Brooks, visited our classroom for a lesson on germs which he tied in with ecosystems and our study of habitats.  The students learned how easily germs can be spread by using an ultra violet light to track the germs.



Chick-fil-A Night

CA Chick-fil-A Night at the new Wilma Rudolph location.

The Varsity Cheerleaders are hosting a Chick-fil-a night on Monday, December 3rd, from 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm in support of their trip to perform in the 2013 Capital One Bowl in Orlando, Florida, on New Year’s Day!  Please bring your family to Chick-fil-a for dinner on Monday!



This week your children have been introduced to a new program at Clarksville Academy, the R.A.C.K. Club.  The Random Acts of Cougar Kindness Club is an opportunity for your child to be “caught” doing random acts of kindness!  Teachers and staff will be watching for examples of good citizenship and character that go above and beyond.  Students could then be rewarded with a ticket to be placed in a jar in the classroom.  Once a month these tickets will be collected and small rewards will be distributed.  Also, group pictures will be taken and displayed on the R.A.C.K. Club board outside the lunchroom.   We can’t wait to recognize our Cougars as proud members of the R.A.C.K. Club!


Science Fun

Our lower school science classes are participating in an experiment of the week with Mrs. Askew.  Throughout the semester she will video these and we will post them on our Clarksville Academy YouTube Channel.  We encourage you to go out and watch these videos weekly.

Lower School Art

Like our Lower School Art Facebook Page! Mrs. Lawless is collecting bottle caps of all sizes and colors for an art project.  Please save your bottle caps and bring in a Ziploc bag to lower school art.  Towards the end of September, fourth graders are going to be designing and constructing scarecrows. We are in need of old Halloween costumes, old clothes, hats, gloves, etc. We will take anything that might make a scarecrow come to life. All donations will be appreciated! Send in with your child or leave at front desk with Mrs. Turnage for Mrs. Lawless.


Box Tops & Campbell’s Labels

This is a reminder that CA collects Campbell’s labels and Box Tops through our CAA.  The money raised from this project funds various school improvement projects.  Last year we raised over $1500 through the Box Tops program alone!  Please turn yours into your child’s teacher or Ms. Turnage in the front office.
