Clarksville Academy - Promoting Academic Excellence, Moral Integrity, Physical Growth, and Civic Responsibility

All Schools News for Sep 1–7, 2014

Power School Update

A reminder to all parents that a new power school account must be created for your student. All addresses, emails and emergency contact information must be updated immediately. If you have questions or trouble updating this information please contact Shelia Ragsdale at sragsdale@clarksvilleacademy.com.

 

Magazine Sales

We had a GREAT kickoff to our event and many of our students met the challenge of selling 8 magazines by the first turn in! Our next turn in date is Sept 3 and our last date will be Sept 10. This is Clarksville Academy’s only school wide fundraiser all year long. We encourage every family to participate and sell at least 10 magazine subscriptions. The money raised from these sales funds many of our programs throughout the year. If the school reaches its overall sales goal, Oct 10 will be given as a day off and Fall Break will begin early! If you have questions regarding the magazine sale, please contact your child’s teacher or Sally Allen at sallen@clarksvilleacademy.com or Kari Turner at kturner@clarksvilleacademy.com.

 

Open House

Who better to talk to new families that those of you who have seen first-hand the difference Clarksville Academy can make in a child’s life?  Invite any new prospective families to CA’s Open House on September 5th from 8:30am – 4:00pm.  School tours and screening are available all day. Please share all information about prospective families with Tricia Wallace at twallace@clarksvilleacaemy.com.

 

Photos

If you take photos at any of our sporting events or campus events and would like to share your shots, please send them to Sally Allen at sallen@clarksvilleacademy.com. These can be used on our website, Facebook page, athletics site or even the yearbook. We ask that you send photos promptly following the activity. Thank you!

 

Student Directory

The Clarksville Academy Student Directory is now available online.  This directory allows you to search PowerSchool and view basic contact information for students.  It is imperative to access your child’s account, review and update any information listed, as this is CA’s central location for emergency contact information (for the school’s use only) and directory search information (for CA family use). This directory allows parents the ability to contact other families, but exclusive to CA families.  You must have a CA PowerSchool student/parent account to view this information.
To access Clarksville Academy’s Directory Search, visit the PowerSchool Parent Login page and log into your child’s account.  At the bottom left column of options listed on the main page of your child’s account, you will find Directory Search.  Once you select this option, you may add the person’s name that you are searching for.  When accessing another family’s contact, the only information for viewing purposes is the student’s name, parent’s names, mailing address, contact phone number, and parent email address. If you have questions regarding the Student Directory please contact the main office.

 

Cougar Bucks

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

To better service our families a new online Marketplace has been developed. You may visit the marketplace at http://marketplace.clarksvilleacademy.com/all-products/. You can pay fees, tuition, Cougar Bucks and more all in one place!

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.

On the south end of campus we are undergoing a restoration project. This project should last three weeks and will affect access from that end of the building. All foot traffic should enter through the main doors of the main building. Students in classrooms 128 & 129 have been relocated for this restoration. We appreciate your understanding and patience during this exciting time at CA.

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.
