By now you may have heard about our new language arts curriculum, Amplify's Core Knowledge Language Arts (CKLA) program. If not, you may wish to review a recent QPS Parent Academy program to learn more about this innovative platform.

Mrs. Lanham's 4th grade class recently explored catapults as part of a CKLA unit about the Middle Ages; they built and tested their own catapults!
