Interact Club

CA Interact Club attended the Sunrise Rotary meeting on Thursday, Sept 15. The meetings take place at 6:45am every Thursday at APSU’s Morgan University Center, and CA Interact will send about 10 students once a month. The Interacters enjoy meeting and connecting with the Rotary members and learning about the opportunities for community service in Clarksville and surrounding areas.

English

In freshman English, we are focusing on extracting relevant text evidence and inferring thematic statements. To reinforce our learning in a creative manner, students made their own “found poetry.” Using a course text as the original source, students used Google drawing and Google docs to make their own poem about hope.
