Clarksville Academy - Promoting Academic Excellence, Moral Integrity, Physical Growth, and Civic Responsibility

Lower School News for August 26 – September 1, 2013

Important Update to Emergency/Medical/Demographic Form
in Powerschool

Because Clarksville Academy is streamlining data and requiring certain forms to be completed electronically, it is mandatory that you log in to your child’s PowerSchool account and complete the Emergency/Medical/Demographic section.  Our revised form has additional pertinent information that assists us in the safety of your child and follows state regulations.

You will find a portion that asks you to list any individual who is authorized to pick up your child and there is a drop down box asking “yes” or “no” to two new questions.

Any emergency card received prior to today’s date is no longer valid.  You must log in and complete the new form, and may do so by clicking the link below.  Your electronic signature and date is required to validate all information provided is accurate.


If you have any questions or concerns, please contact CA’s office.  If you have not received PowerSchool codes, please email Sheila Ragsdale at or Kari Turner at

PowerSchool accounts must be accessed and updated no later than Friday, August 30, 2013.  We understand that your time is valuable and appreciate your cooperation and assistance in this matter.

It was a very exciting week for Pre-K through 5th grade!  They received their iPad Minis that they will use for schoolwork this year.  After a brief introduction from Mrs. Cara Miller and Mrs. Piper Bell, the students took the iPad Mini pledge.

Box Tops & Campbell’s Labels

This is a reminder that CA collects Campbell’s labels and Box Tops through our CAA. The money raised from this project funds various school improvement projects. Last year we raised over $2000 through the Box Tops program alone! Please turn yours into your child’s teacher or Ms. Turnage in the front office.
