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.

 

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!

 

iCougar App

We are currently updating our iCougar app. Please bear with us as we do this. Some functions may not work correctly during this update. The Lower School Lunch schedule an IS/US class schedule as well as Power School are currently not functioning properly. 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!

 

FCA

Please join Intermediate School Fellowship of Christian Athletes each Wednesday morning in Mrs. Hinson’s room 128 at 7:15 a.m. Our officers this year are Carson Caudill and Madison Hawkins-Presidents, Charlton Kelly-Vice President, Bailey Coleman-Communication Coordinator, and Addy Means-Recruiter.  Everyone is welcome!

Please join the Upper School Fellowship of Christian Athletes on September 3 for our first meeting! We will meet each Wednesday morning at 7:15 in Coach Chuck Holt’s room (under the gym). We invite everyone to attend!

 

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
