Congratulations Ahauve

Congratulations to Ahauve Orusa, who auditioned and was selected for the Tennessee Mid-State Choir.  She was one of over 200 sopranos who auditioned and only 50 were selected for the choir.



A reminder that all spots to the left of the grassy median (with the fountain) are reserved faculty parking spots.  The spots directly in front of school are also reserved administration spots.  The first 3 spaces closest to the school are reserved for visitors to our campus.  Parents are encouraged to park in the spaces along side the hill leading up from the Batson (Extended Care) Building.  Parents should not park on Anderson Drive or in front of school during drop-off or pick-up.  Students should be ready to exit the vehicle prior to pulling up to the front of school during drop-off. This will enable us to keep the flow of traffic going.  If your child is not ready to exit the vehicle, please pull into one of the above-mentioned parking spaces.  Thank you.


Congratulations! Heritage Bank Player of the Week – 9/21 – John Ross Rudolph

Carla Allison from Heritage Bank and Head Coach Todd Hood presented Junior John Ross Rudolph with the Player of the Week Award. John received this award because of his defensive performance in the Portland game. John lead the Cougars in tackles with 10 and had one sack. “John is such a great player to coach,” said Coach Hood. “John has been starting on defense since his freshman year. John is a force on defense and teams are having a hard time blocking him. He is having a great junior year.”


Good Luck in the Regional Golf Tournament

We want to wish the following students good luck in the regional golf tournament beginning tomorrow at Montgomery Bell State Park.  Please help us root on these talented students!

Football Time

Friday, October 4th the Cougars will travel to Houston County with the kickoff at 7:30PM.  Though we are out of school the following week for Fall Break, the Cougars will play at home against Jo Byrns on October 12.  This will be our final home game of the season and will also be Senior night.  Please make plans to join us for both games.


Tailgating Alley

Tailgating has been wonderful this season and we want to keep it up for the October 12th game.  Please remember if you sign up for tailgating you are required to put up a tent at your spot.  For reservations of your tailgating spot please contact Theresia Burchett at tburchett@clarksvilleacademy.com.


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.


Emergency Cards

Please return emergency cards to the front office, your child’s classroom teacher, or your child’s class sponsor, by Wednesday, August 22.  State law mandates that we have this important information on file for every student who attends Clarksville Academy. You can find the form online at: http://clarksvilleacademy.com/newca/wp-content/uploads/CA-new-student-info-sheet-2012-2013.pdf




Please join Fellowship of Christian Athletes on Wednesdays for our meeting! This year Upper school FCA will meet in Coach Holt’s classroom #118 (under the gym) and Intermediate school FCA will meet in Mrs. Hinson’s classroom #128. We will be meeting on Wednesday mornings at 7:15 a.m. Please come and be a part of FCA, everyone is welcome! You do not have to be an athlete to participate in FCA.


Fall Festival

Fall Festival is right around the corner and a meeting will be held on Monday, Oct 1 at 2PM to discuss the class booths.  Below is a list of the class baskets.  We ask that each class/grade donate items for their basket.  Class baskets are auctioned off during the fall festival.  The money raised is donated to CAA, which has many school improvement activities throughout the year.  Please see your classroom with questions or email Tricia Wallace to register your booth: twallace@clarksvilleacademy.com.

Lunch Menu

We have gone completely online for lunch ordering.  The following link will enable you to order your child’s lunch online. Please remember that all students must pre-order when eating from the hot lunch line (this includes all those who have pre-paid for an entire year of lunches) and that students will be charged for a lunch if ordered unless they are absent.  These new online forms will go out on Monday and will be requested back by no later than Wednesday of that week. Please send hot lunch payments in a Ziploc bag or envelope clearly marked with your child’s name, grade and teacher.  We are so excited about this new process and hope you will be too!  Please contact Ms. Tooley at lunch@clarksvilleacademy.com.
