All School News for Tuesday, September 4, 2012

Magazine Sales

Magazine Sales kicked off last week with a fun filled assembly!  This is such an important fundraiser for our school and we know that each family will join us in our efforts to SELL, SELL, SELL!  We ask that every child sell at least 10 magazines to help us reach our goal of $52,000!  When we reach that school wide goal, we will receive FRIDAY, OCTOBER 5 as a FULL DAY OFF!  Fall break will begin a day early!  Along with this, your child can receive many great prizes, our classrooms receive additional financial support based on the percentage of magazines sold in their classes, and our school receives the much needed support of our families.  The library will also have a list of needed magazines posted on a board outside their doors for those who wish to donate a magazine for school use.  Magazines can be purchased online through the link on our website and both paper and e-copies of magazines are available!  Students who sell Combo issues (2 different magazines for a discounted rate) can count this as 2 magazine for the prize assemblies.  Families should email Theresia Burchett when this happens at tburchett@clarksvilleacademy.com.  This will enable those who are processing orders to review the submissions and mark the additional sale.  All students who sell 5 magazines will receive a new BLUE Cougar shirt which will be the perfect thing for Friday night’s game!  WEDNESDAY, September 5 is the first turn in day! 

 

Parking

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.

 

BLUE Out

Friday night will be our 2nd home football game!  We’ve gotten off to an amazing start with a 3-0 record!  This is turning out to be a season you won’t want to miss!  Join us at Simpson field Friday night as we take on Mt. Juliet Christian!  Gates will open at 5:30 and tailgating will begin then!  The Cougar Club (sports booster club) will host its second event by hosting another fabulous tailgate!  Their tailgate tent will be located in the middle of Tailgate ally and everyone is invited to come out and enjoy FREE BBQ Chicken, Baked Beans and more!  Thanks to Danny Kroeger for sponsoring this week’s tailgate!  Don’t forget to wear BLUE for the BLUE out!

 

Tailgating Alley

Tailgating was a HUGE success this past week and we’ve expanded our Tailgate Alley!  Tailgating at Simpson field will be done in the area between Wes Smith Baseball Field and Simpson field.  All spots must be reserved and will be on a first come first serve basis.  Over flow tailgating will be in the area facing Burchett Softball Field.  For reservations contact Theresia Burchett at tburchett@clarksvilleacademy.com with your name, email and family names of those tailgating in your tailgate spot.  (Each family can reserve one spot that can include multiple families if you prefer.) Special request for specific slots or neighbors are welcome, but not guaranteed.  Slots for all home games, can be made 2 weeks prior to the next game.  Reservations can be made now for September 7.  Many of the slots are already reserved so make sure you get yours today!  Reservations will begin on Sept 7 for the home game on Sept 21.  Once your reservation is made, you will receive an email confirmation and parking pass from Theresia Burchett.  Please make sure you receive an email confirmation.  If you have not, we may not have your reservation.  We encourage everyone to tailgate an support our Cougars!

 

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: https://clarksvilleacademy.com/tcg/wp-content/uploads/CA-new-student-info-sheet-2012-2013.pdf

Lunch Menu

We are working to go completely online for lunch orders.  The following link will enable you to order your child’s lunch online.  Please do this for the week of September 10.  This lunch order will be due no later than September 5.  This give you 3 weeks of lunch schedules!    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.
