Literacy Day

Literacy Day was a HUGE success!  The transformation of the library was magical and we hope you were able to join us.  Thank you to Lisa Wilson for all her help and leadership transforming our library into Christmastown.  The story of Rudolph truly came to life!  Thank you to Mrs. Procter, Mrs. Durrett, & Mrs. Goostree for their hours of planning and to Mrs. Amanda Pitt, her intermediate drama students, and Mr. Kyle Christmas and his guitar students for setting the scene.  Thank you to the Roxy Regional Theatre for lending us Donald Groves to play the part of our narrator.  This day was such a wonderful experience for all our students.  Stay tuned for an online album featuring some of our favorite photos.

Choir News

The Intermediate School Choir shared Christmas joy as they sang at the Dogwood Assisted Living on December 5th. The students had a wonderful time singing and interacting with all the residents.

Join us at 5:30 for some hot cider and dessert before the concert.

If you are not in the “Holiday Spirit” you will be by the time our Lower School Students perform for you their Christmas program, “In The Spirit”. The Performance will be held on December 19th @ 8:30 a.m. in the main gym. “Brio”, a string ensemble, will perform throughout the program along with special instrumental performances by some of our 5th grade students. A “big celebration” will take place at the end of our performance as we sing, “In The Spirit”. Don’t miss the fun!

Clarksville Academy is still very excited about our expansion plans! As you can see a new expansion is slated to open January 2015 and is adjacent to the main building. This expansion is really booming on the north end of our campus and we are thrilled with the process! In this expanded part of the main building we have the opportunity for a few more classrooms to be named. We have had a few families reserve naming rights on some of the classrooms, but still have a couple left. If you are interested in honoring or memorializing someone in this way, please contact Sally Allen at or 647-6311. These won’t last long.

Our hope is to have the new building shown below completed by 2020. We need your help do this! Contact Sally Allen at to find out what you can do to help us reach our goal.
