Junior Cheer

It is time for Junior Cheer again! The Junior Cheerleaders schedule is as follows:

Jan. 27 from 3:00-4:00 p.m. Jan. 28 @ Procter Court 6:00 p.m.


The Varsity Girls’ Basketball game begins at 6:00 p.m., and the Varsity Boys’ Basketball game immediately follows at approximately 7:00 p.m. The Junior Cheerleaders may perform during half-time of both varsity games. The cheerleaders are welcome to choose one half-time or both as it is a school night. After our half-time performances, the cheerleaders will return to their parents. Please assist us by coming to the sideline to pick up your cheerleader.

**Reminder: On Monday, January 27th at the conclusion of practice, CA’s Varsity Cheerleaders will escort the Junior Cheerleaders to the front of the main building for pick-up at 4:00 p.m.



Our Kindergarten students have done many activities based on the book The Mitten by Jan Brett. One of the activities was for the students to be the author and illustrator of a piece of work. The students were the illustrator by coloring their mitten with details. It may be in color patterns or have designs on it. Then, the students became the author and described their mitten with details and descriptive words. Some of the concepts we are concentrating on with our writing is using inventive “kid” writing when the students are unable to find the word in our room or on the word wall in the classroom. They have done a great job sounding the words out and spelling them with the sounds they hear. All of the students’ work will be displayed in the hallway.

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.
