Intermediate School News for August 26 – September 1, 2013

Important Update to Emergency/Medical/Demographic Form
in Powerschool

Because Clarksville Academy is streamlining data and requiring certain forms to be completed electronically, it is mandatory that you log in to your child’s PowerSchool account and complete the Emergency/Medical/Demographic section.  Our revised form has additional pertinent information that assists us in the safety of your child and follows state regulations.

You will find a portion that asks you to list any individual who is authorized to pick up your child and there is a drop down box asking “yes” or “no” to two new questions.

Any emergency card received prior to today’s date is no longer valid.  You must log in and complete the new form, and may do so by clicking the link below.  Your electronic signature and date is required to validate all information provided is accurate.


If you have any questions or concerns, please contact CA’s office.  If you have not received PowerSchool codes, please email Sheila Ragsdale at or Kari Turner at

PowerSchool accounts must be accessed and updated no later than Friday, August 30, 2013.  We understand that your time is valuable and appreciate your cooperation and assistance in this matter.



Science Challenge

Clarksville Academy - Intermediate School News - Science Challenge Winners - August 27th, 2013Mrs. Jacobsen’s class kicked off the new school year with a science challenge.  Each quarter, students will be given a challenge that incorporates problem-solving skills. Students were paired up and given the same materials:  3 pieces of newspaper and tape.  Their challenge was to build the tallest tee that could hold a golf ball for 20 seconds.  The previous record was 154 cm.  This year two teams broke the record.

First place went to Taylor Norris and Morgan Crowley with a tee 163cm tall!  Fred Orr and Calvin Gray won second place with a 155cm tall tee.  Rhiannon Howard and Christy Zheng took third place with a 140 cm tall tee.  Congratulations to all the winners!!!
