Book Drive 

Our student representatives of the Mayor’s Youth Council will be hosting a Book Drive Feb. 19th – 28th to campaign for Child Literacy. Tennessee has one of the lowest adult literacy rates in the nation, and studies have shown that extensive attention to literacy in children has led to a decrease in adult illiteracy rates. The goal of this drive is to collect children’s books from grade levels 1-5 that will be donated to Elementary Schools around Clarksville. Please consider contributing to this campaign, and send in as many books as possible. There will be collections boxes located in the library and with Mrs. Turnage.

Annual Giving

Our Annual Fund giving has increased this year, but we still haven’t met our goal.  In order to cover the needs of our school, we continue to need annual funds.  This year annual funds are being directed to Security upgrades, Staff Professional Development, and facility improvements to name just a few.  As we continue to look ahead, we have a few projects on the horizon.  Our goal is to replace the metal doors at the entrances to our main building and Activities Center.  These new doors would include a automated locking system and card swipe entrances.  This comes at a cost over $200,000.  We would also like to add additional parking to the front of campus, which will require major dirt work and a retaining wall.  This would add approximately 20-30 much-needed parking spaces and come at a cost of $25,000.    If you are interested in supporting either of these projects or would like to contribute to annual giving, please contact Sally Allen at sallen@clarksvilleacademy.com.
