Community Christian School

This week, Mrs. Ashley Kelly encouraged her students to meld creativity into their science classes.

“They learn so much more when they actually do hands on versus reading from a book," Kelly explained. 

Kelly teaches both seventh and eighth grade science and ninth and tenth grade biology at Community Christian School in Orange, according to administrative assistant Kara Dewberry.

The middle school students wrote biographical articles about a scientist of their choice and dressed like their scientist for the day.


Every year, Community Christian School students take one week out of the school year to perform community service around the Golden Triangle. CCS’s junior high volunteered at the Salvation Army, Stable Spirit, the Sharing Station and Little White Crosses.
