Today in honors biology students dissected grasshoppers. They identified the body regions and internal organs, and discussed characteristics that make arthropods fit for their environments.
The Animal Science class took a field trip to Mr. Bratton’s farm where escorted the students out into the pastures to view his bulls, cows, and calves. Some of the calves were born just 2 weeks ago. He spoke to the students about the need for quality, nutritional feed for the cattle to bring the best price at market. They returned to the hay barn where students got first hand experience at taking core samples of hay. The samples the students took will be sent to the University of Tennessee for a nutritional analysis. Mr. Bratton will give the students a copy of the analysis to view later this semester. To end the trip Mr. Bratton allowed the students to have a little fun with the cattle shoot, and pretending to give vaccinations to cattle.
Congratulations to our Varsity Golfers on their journey to the State Tournament. Wyatt Samuels finished tied for 31st place individually and our girls team came in 5th in the state. This is a great accomplishment for these golfers. We are extremely proud of them!

This is a reminder that CA collects Box Tops through our CAA. The money raised from this project funds various school improvement projects. Last year we raised over $2000 through the Box Tops program alone! Please turn yours into your child’s teacher or Ms. Turnage in the front office.
