Parents Night Out!

A Clarksville Academy, Challenge Based Learning group is hosting a “Parents Night Out” on Friday, March 27th, 2015 from 5pm to 10pm. All proceeds raised will benefit Relay for Life. The Parents Night Out is for grades Pre-K through 5th grade and will take place in the Clarksville Academy main gym. The price for this event will be a flat rate of $35 for one child and $50 for two or more children.

During the event we will serve pizza, juice boxes, chips, and fruit snacks and provide have multiple games. We will have a Toy Story marathon playing throughout the event for those children who would like to sit and watch. Adult sponsors will also be present during the event.

Reservations are preferred. Please contact Kaitlyn Halliday at khalliday@clarksvilleacademy.com. Feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns. Please provide the name and ages of your children, an emergency contact, name & number and any allergies your child might have.  We look forward to seeing you!


1st Grade Pet Show

Due to the recent winter weather we had to postpone the Annual 1st Grade Pet Show last week. The new date for the pet show is now March 6 at 9:00 AM on Procter Court. First grade teachers will email their students soon with more details. Everyone is invited.


Steak Dinner

With our recent days out of school and the inability to have weekend rehearsals on campus for this year’s performance at CA’s Annual An Evening with Friends Steak Dinner, the Steak Dinner committee has come to a decision that there is inadequate time for preparation to continue with our original March 7th show date.  Please make note that CA’s Annual An Evening with Friends Steak Dinner will now be on Saturday, April 18, 2015, at 6:00 P.M.  Tickets may be purchased through Mrs. Kari Turner in the front office.

You will receive a new RSVP card in the mail to replace the one you received earlier.  We apologize for any scheduling conflicts that this may have caused your family, but to have a top rate dinner and performance of this caliber, this decision was necessary.

Please mark your calendar and we look forward to seeing you there!


PreK Royal Processional

Our PreK students had a wonderful time on their Royal processional around school on Friday.






FUSE Social Studies enjoyed learning more about our nation’s government in an interactive, hands-on government station. Many students created bills and declarations of their own that they could either approve or veto!





Third Grade

Ms. Williams’ class now has 18 new “Egg-cellent” classmates in their classroom. They are hatching baby chicks which should be ready to hatch in 21 days.




We are currently undergoing re-enrollment here at CA. Families should submit their re-enrollment contracts before March 6. All returning families have their space secured for the 2015-2016 school year until March 6. After this date we will begin open enrollment for any student in our community. If you have questions regarding re-enrollment please see the Business Office.

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.
