Absentee Reminder

A reminder to all parents, if your child is going to be absent or is absent due to illness, we ask that you notify the school. Thank you.

 

Reminder

Please remember in the morning there is no entering campus from the main entrance on 2nd Street. All cars should enter on Anderson Drive or at the lower entrance on 2nd street. It is important to keep the traffic flow going in the right direction to avoid accidents. When visiting campus, we remind you that the row of parking directly in front of school and the first two rows near the Cougar Cruisers are reserved faculty/staff spaces. We ask all parents and guests to park on the hill to the right of the school. Thank you.

 

Upcoming Dates

Below are some dates to remember….

  • March 8th—Lower School Conference Day—No School Lower School Students
  • March 29th-April 5th—Spring Break (return to school on April 8th)

 

R.A.C.K.

This week your children have been introduced to a new program at Clarksville Academy, the R.A.C.K. Club. The Random Acts of Cougar Kindness Club is an opportunity for your child to be “caught” doing random acts of kindness! Teachers and staff will be watching for examples of good citizenship and character that go above and beyond. Students could then be rewarded with a ticket to be placed in a jar in the classroom. Once a month these tickets will be collected and small rewards will be distributed. Also, group pictures will be taken and displayed on the R.A.C.K. Club board outside the lunchroom. We can’t wait to recognize our Cougars as proud members of the R.A.C.K. Club!

 

Science Fun

Our lower school science classes are participating in an experiment of the week with Mrs. Askew. Throughout the semester she will video these and we will post them on our Clarksville Academy YouTube Channel. We encourage you to go out and watch these videos weekly. http://www.youtube.com/user/cacougarstn?feature=watch

 

Lower School Art

Like our Lower School Art Facebook Page! Mrs. Lawless is collecting bottle caps of all sizes and colors for an art project. Please save your bottle caps and bring in a Ziploc bag to lower school art. Towards the end of September, fourth graders are going to be designing and constructing scarecrows. We are in need of old Halloween costumes, old clothes, hats, gloves, etc. We will take anything that might make a scarecrow come to life. All donations will be appreciated! Send in with your child or leave at front desk with Mrs. Turnage for Mrs. Lawless.

 

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 $1500 through the Box Tops program alone! Please turn yours into your child’s teacher or Ms. Turnage in the front office.
