All School News: October 5 – October 11, 2015

Author Kelsey Timmerman

Author Kelsey Timmerman visited Clarksville Academy on Friday to sign student’s copies of “Where Am I Wearing?”. This book was read by all our upper school students as part of their summer reading program. The students enjoyed talking with Mr. Timmerman and hearing more about his thoughts behind his book.





Car Decal

All lower school students will receive 1 car decal in their backpacks today. We encourage every family to place this in the lower corner of their back car window. IS/US students will be given decals during assembly tomorrow. If anyone would like an additional decal please contact the main office. We would love to see every family have this wonderful new decal proudly displayed on their car window.

We would love to have pictures of you and your decal on your Fall Break happenings. Stop and snap a photo and let us know where you went & where you took CA with you on Fall Break! Send all photos to Safe travels!

School Photos

School photos will be sent home with all students on Tuesday. If you want to order your photos please return the order form by no later than October 20. Retakes will be made on Nov 4.

Fall Festival

The Clarksville Academy Fall Festival is quickly approaching! On October 24 from 10:00 AM-3:00 PM families can participate in variety of fun activities. During this annual event we will have carnival games, a silent auction, vendor booths, food and so much more! If you are interested in being a vendor for this year’s fall festival please contact Candice Wall at These booths are open to outside vendors and we encourage you to participate. Each grade will also have a carnival game booth. Check with your child’s teacher/sponsor to sign up for a time to work. Each class is also assigned a themed basket and we ask that items be donated for these. A complete list of baskets is below.

Golf Team

The Varsity Golf Teams have had an amazing season! Both the girls and boys teams have steadily remained on top throughout the season. Last week both teams competed at the Regional Tournament. Sadly, our boys season ended with this final tournament. However, our girls team will advance to the State Tournament for the third year in a row! Only either teams across the state in A-AA advance as a team! Bailey Foote, Mallory Saleh and Hunter Farrell will compete on October 13-14 at Willowbrook Golf Course in Manchester, Tennessee. Great job ladies!



FCA would like to thank everyone who join us at the pole, it was an amazing morning!
