>Camperdown Academy’s drama department and teacher Ms. Jimmi-Ann Muse have been busy with several projects. Y Group students Henri C, Amy F, Colin F, R.H. R, Will S, Maddie S, and Cassidy V presented the Joke Show to students in A through M Groups. This annual event is an opportunity for students to begin the year with a good laugh, while gaining poise and self-confidence in the area of public speaking and performance.
>Camperdown Academy students are creating year-long organizational goals as part of a new art project. Those goals are placed into Japanese paper lanterns which they will hang on the "bottle tree" created to showcase student work by artist-in-residence Bob Doster. Along with the bottle tree, Mr. Doster and the students created a jaguar sculpture of the school mascot to show off their Camperdown Academy Jaguar pride. Both the bottle tree and the jaguar, visible immediately upon entering school grounds, inspire a sense of pride and student involvement to all who visit.
