Veteran’s Essay Winners

Congratulations to Wes Rugen who was named the Grand Champion of all entries for the county Veteran’s Essay Contest. We are so proud of Wes for his moving essay!




Mr & Miss CA

Congratulations to Hunter Galbraith & Evelyn Turner for being named Mr. & Miss. CA. This honor is bestowed upon the male and female student chosen by faculty who display the characteristics of someone who honors the Cougar tradition. Students are polite, courteous, a friend to all ages and someone who has pride for all that CA stands for. Congratulations to these two deserving students for this honor!


Thanksgiving Dinner

We will once again host Thanksgiving Dinner at CA. This annual tradition is a wonderful family experience for all. Parents, grandparents, siblings, and friends are invited to attend lunch with your student on Monday, November 23. Students should RSVP via the standard online lunch form. Parents and guests should RSVP using the card sent home last week. Meals are $6.50 per guest and we ask that all RSVPs be received by November 17. We hope you will join us!

**Please note that on Nov 23 there will be no breakfast or snack served due to preparations for Thanksgiving Dinner.




Veteran’s Day Program

We will host our annual Veteran’s Day Program on Tuesday, November 10, at 1:30 PM on Procter Court in the main gym. This moving program will feature music by our lower school students as well as our intermediate and upper school concert choirs. Please join us for this special program. 


Fine Arts Blog

The Fine Arts department has started a weekly blog of their activities! We hope you will check back often to see what your student may be doing in art, music, and drama. Important dates and performance information will also be posted. Bookmark this site for exciting information!




Many of you take photos at various events and activities around school. We encourage you to share these with our Marketing/PR office as well as our yearbook staff by using the email photos@clarksvilleacademy.com. This email is designed for students and parents to send pictures taken throughout the school year. W encourage you to caption your photo or to write a sentence or two with the event name, students pictured in the photo and the date it was taken.   We do not guarantee that every photo will be used, but we look forward to seeing your pictures.


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.
