CA Update 5-22-16
Home of the Braves
This week is, of course, very busy. I believe I say that about every week in May and June! Wednesday evening we will honor academic, artistic and athletic achievements at our Awards Night. If your child is receiving recognition you should have received a notice in the mail. We hope you and your student will attend as we recognize CA students for their accomplishments. Friday we will have our field day, Spring Fling. The Academian will be dedicated and distributed, the student body will recognize the Class of 2016 retiring faculty and staff, and the Class of 2016 class officers will say their good-byes to the underclass men. We will also have an entertainer, comedian hypnotist Jack Hirsh, games and everyone's favorite - the faculty dunk tank! Somehow, my name got on the list!
Again, it is a busy week. Students in grades 9-11 are readying for state tests just around the corner. We have one test on June 1 for students in Algebra 2. The rest start on June 14. Athletetic teams are in sectional play and our musicians are rehearsing for end of the year performances. WOW!
As always, LET'S FINISH STRONG!
