Do you need poinsettias to make your home look festive for the holidays? Beginning November 9th, the Junior class will be selling assorted sizes of red or white poinsettias. These plants will be delivered right before the Thanksgiving break and will come straight from the grower. The Juniors appreciate your support as they fundraise for the prom!



Kindergarten had the Clarksville Fire Department bring a truck and educate our students on fire safety Wednesday, November 2. They learned the names of some tools that are carried on the fire trucks. One of the fire fighters even dressed in his “turn out gear” for us to see. This helps children to not be scared if they are ever to encounter a real emergency where a fireman has to report.   We appreciate the service and dedication of our local fire fighters.





Mrs. Clinard’s class had a special Halloween visitor!

Austin Reigle’s grandmother came dressed as a witch and read to their class. It was a special surprise and even her grandson didn’t recognize her! The children loved this special treat.



First Grade Pet Show

The Annual First Grade Pet Show was held last Friday and was a huge success. Thank you to the first grade teachers for planning and implementing a wonderful program. Thank you to our fine arts teachers Mrs. Baldwin & Mrs. Thomas for working with the students on wonderful musical and artistic additions to the show. A big thank you to the students and parents for bringing their favorite pets to school Friday and sharing them with all of us!



Sixth Grade

This week in Science, sixth graders created models of different types of volcanoes. Once each model was formed students went outside and created an eruption.  Students wrote lab reports describing the difference in each type of volcano and eruption.



Honors Anatomy

Honors anatomy tested the effects of temperature and fatigue on the force of a muscle contraction.  As you can see, they don’t care for the effect of ice on muscles.



Interact Club

On Thursday, Nov 3, CA Interact helped serve Manna Café’s Thursday meal. They had support from members of the Noon Club Rotarians, Dr. Adel Saleh, Dr. Bart Lynn, and Mr. Steve Kemmer. Many people enjoyed dinner and the Interact members enjoyed their service!
