10.4- 10.8 Fall Break
10.24 1C Book Fair at 9:30 am
For the third year in a row, the Elementary Division will break away from our regular schedule on October 2 and 3 to engage in two days of STEAM-infused learning!
This year’s Fall Breakaway is inspired by the work of Leonardo Da Vinci. Da Vinci was a man with extraordinary interests and talent. Our boys will explore Da Vinci as a scientist, engineer, mathematician, musician, artist, and dreamer (inventor).
As we prepare for the big event, you can help us by sending in the following items:
empty paper towel cardboard rolls, empty cereal boxes, small cardboard boxes, and blocks of styrofoam. Thanks for your help!
Crusader Café is back for another year!
“My first ever performance was at Crusader Café. Now I have performed at some very popular music venues in Memphis such as Young Avenue Deli, Overton Square, and Loflin Yard. Crusader Café was an inspiration to me and the beginning of an overall successful career in drumming.” -Alex Smith
Crusader Café is held during lunchtime and is a time where a boy can showcase his musical talents to his peers and others. We will be dining and entertaining in the Fellowship Hall.
