FALL BREAK

Reminder Fall Break begins this Friday with a full day of no school and continues through Friday, October 17. We will return to school rested, relaxed and ready to complete the semester on October 20. Enjoy your break!

 

Scheduling Information

We are currently updating the iCougar app and therefore some of the information contained in it is incorrect. Many of you have asked about your child’s daily schedule or the Lower School Lunch schedule. All of these can be found on the website under Daily Schedule. Please use this link when needed:

Thank you

We want to say thank you to all those who have been to the football games, tailgated and supported our team. The student section these past two weeks has been amazing. The overall support of our students, parents, faculty, and staff has been wonderful and we want to see it continue. Our next game is on the road in Cheatham Co. this Friday night. Make plans to join us! Mark your calendars for the final home football game on Oct 17. We hope to see record breaking numbers in tailgate alley and in the stands.

Prospective Students

Who better to talk to new families than those of you who have seen first-hand the difference Clarksville Academy can make in a child’s life? CA would like to invite prospective families to tailgate with us on October 3. We ask that you refer any families that you feel might be interested in CA to Tricia Wallace. Please share all information about prospective families with Tricia Wallace by Sept 26 at twallace@clarksvilleacaemy.com.

Cougar Bucks may be added to your Cougar Card any time day or night! We encourage everyone to take advantage of this easy way to pay for lunch, break, or even the Cougar Store! Payments can be made through our online Marketplace at the below link or by visiting Mrs. Kristi Truitt in the Cougar Café.

 

CA Marketplace

Expanding the Experience

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 sallen@clarksvilleacademy.com or 647-6311. These won’t last long.

Our hope is to have the new building shown below completed in the next 3-5 years. We need your help do this! Contact Sally Allen at sallen@clarksvilleacademy.com to find out what you can do to help us reach our goal.

News from the Cougar Café

Please remember to Pre-Order Lunch each week. This is very important even when you are on the annual or bi-annual lunch plan. Clarksville Academy now offers a Cougar Bucks Account option to better assist children with their lunch needs! This convenient option gives families the opportunity to deposit money into an account and this money can be withdrawn for miscellaneous items that are available at the express window or the hot lunch window. Payments can now be made via the new online marketplace!

If you have any questions please contact Kristi Truitt at lunch@clarksvilleacademy.com.  Thank you!!

 

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 $2000 through the Box Tops program alone! Please turn yours into your child’s teacher or Ms. Turnage in the front office.

 

iPad/iPhone App

We encourage you to download our mobile app from the App Store. We are currently only available on Apple products. This app will provide wonderful updates about what is going on at our school.
