Mrs. Moore’s Atom Game

In this game, small groups used colored poker chips to represent electrons, protons, and neutrons. They roll the dice to find the element they will work with and then take a card to find how they need to modify the element. The team to correctly create the most isotopes, ions and neutral atoms by the end of class wins the game. Honors Chemistry used this game to review for an upcoming test.

Photos

Many of you take photos at various events and activities around school. We encourage you to share these with our Marketing/PR office as well as our yearbook staff by using the email photos@clarksvilleacademy.com. This email is designated for students and parents to send pictures taken throughout the school year. We encourage you to caption your photo or to write a sentence or two with the event name, students pictured in the photo and the date it was taken. We do not guarantee that every photo will be used, but we look forward to seeing your pictures.

 

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. 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.
