Clarksville Academy - Promoting Academic Excellence, Moral Integrity, Physical Growth, and Civic Responsibility

Upper School News: January 30 – February 3, 2017

FCA

The amazing support FCA saw last week from the students, parents, and staff at Clarksville Academy was staggering. The Humane Society drive in memory of Brock Blick was a huge success. The overwhelming response allowed us to give so many needed supplies to this worthwhile mission. Each grade, faculty and parents offering loving support to the Blick family signed memorial pages. Thank you to everyone who participated in this FCA led project.

Modern History

Upper School students in Mr. Christmas’s Modern History class work hard each week to prepare original articles on topics of their choice over the past 100 years of history. Their work is displayed on their own pages within the class website, which can be found here: https://sites.google.com/a/clarksvilleacademy.com/news-noteworthy/

Dual Anatomy

This week students in dual enrollment anatomy recorded their own electrocardiogram wavelengths following four treatments.

 

Honors English II

This week Honors English II is finishing up the long journey students have taken with Huckleberry Finn down the Mississippi River.  Reading Mark Twain’s classic novel, the class has followed the protagonist through one escapade after another, noting how, as Twain wisely wrote: ““Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one’s lifetime.”  During class, students have written creatively, using Huck’s distinct dialect in responses to the novel and will soon finish up critical essays that explore its important themes.  In addition, students continue to take ACT English practice quizzes in earnest preparation for those nerve-wracking ACT test days that are approaching for many students.

FCA

FCA meets weekly on Wednesdays at 7:15AM in Coach Williams’ room. We invite all US students to attend.

 

Box Tops

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.
