The FUSE program is off to a great start! Social studies has 5th grade students working on a CSI Investigation about what happened to “The Lost Colony of Roanoke”. The 4th grade students have been sharing the Native American names they created as the Olmec culture did, which they are studying.





Design Thinking Lab

This wonderful enrichment is off to a great start! Last week both grades tried to Save Simon! This wasn’t any ordinary activity, saving Simon took critical thinking, group cooperation and time management. Below is a group of our 4th graders who Saved Simon!

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.
