Fall Festival

A big thank you to all the parents, teachers and students who helped to make our annual fall festival a huge success! This annual event benefits all our classrooms, as well as CAA (PTO), athletic teams, and clubs. It takes a lot of support from everyone and we appreciate it! Thank you to Candice Wall for once again chairing this event and making it the best yet!

Our first annual Scarecrow competition got off to a great start with some really fantastic entries! First grader Keith Gosa won first place for his Darth Vader Scarecrow, while Mrs. Baldwin’s Lower School Art Club with their Charlie Brown Scarecrow tied with Mr. Neitzke’s Van Gough for second place.





School Photos

Retake Day is Nov. 3 for anyone who did not have their photo taken during school photo day. Students in Lower School will also have their class photos taken on this day.



There will be no school on Monday, November 7 due to Teacher Inservice. All of our teachers are traveling to Chattanooga to take place in the TAIS conference. Also there will be no school on Friday, November 11 due to observance of Veteran’s Day.


Veteran’s Day

We will host our annual Veteran’s Day program on Thursday, November 10 at 1:30. All are welcome to attend.


Green Committee

Erica Smith, Gina Goostree & Karen Dirksen represented CA’s Green Committee at Clarksville-Montgomery County’s annual Green Banquet.  CA was recognized in achieving their “Green Recertification” for 2016.  CA continues to grow and improve our Green Program through new initiatives and the continuation/expanding of our recycling program.  Lee Smith (Mrs. Smith’s spouse), of American Snuff Co. works as our school’s mentor to continually look for ways to improve our program.




Do you need poinsettias to make your home look festive for the holidays? Beginning, November 9th, the Junior class will be selling assorted sizes of red or white poinsettias. These plants will be delivered right before the Thanksgiving break and will come straight from the grower. The Juniors appreciate your support as they fundraise for the prom!


After School Enrichment

We are pleased to announce that our After School Enrichment program will begin next week! We have two wonderful offerings—Cursive Writing with Mrs. Marla Clemments and Drawing with Pencils and Pastels with Mrs. Shelley Holt. Registration is online here.



Throughout the year if you take photos at various school events and would like to submit them for possible use in the yearbook or for marketing purposes, please send them to
