Don’t forget our deadline for Re-Enrollment is February 19.  Beginning in February, we will review classroom enrollment number and waitlists for grades could be created. Re-Enrollment must take place online through PowerSchool.  If you have trouble re-enrolling your child, please contact Cara Miller, at cmiller@clarksvilleacademy.com.   Financial Aid applications are due March 1.  Financial Aid will be awarded on a first come, first serve basis this year and review of applications will begin this week.  We encourage everyone wanting financial aid to apply now.

 

Kindergarten Preview

All current PreK students and parents are invited to a Kindergarten preview on Monday, February 4 at 3:00 P.M. This event will give you a sneak peek into our Kindergarten program.  Join us for refreshments, class tours, and important information about the 2019-2020 Kindergarten year.

 

White Columns

Our annual White Columns magazine is here!  It should arrive in your mailbox this week.  We have lots of extra issues and need your help!  If your place of business would be willing to display our magazine in their lobby, please contact us!  We would like to place 3-5 copies in a variety of businesses in town!  Contact Rebecca Beach, at rbeach@clarksvilleacademy.com to arrange for us to drop them off!  Thank you!

 

Engage, Embrace, Empower

Clarksville Academy is blogging!  Our new blog launched the week of Thanksgiving and will post twice weekly. The hope of this blog is to offer insights for parents.  We will discuss a variety of topics from technology, to parenting ideas, ways to prepare your child for testing, long breaks, etc.  We hope you will choose to subscribe and to encourage your friends to do so as well. These blogs will not be CA centered, but will offer insights for any parent at any school.  Subscribe at: https://clarksvilleacademy.com/category/engage-embrace-empower/

ColorCycle

We are excited to announce a new conservation program at our school called Crayola ColorCycle – an amazing program devised to repurpose used markers rather than sending them to landfills. All around Clarksville Academy, students and teachers will be collecting used markers, highlighters and dry erase markers in drop-off boxes. Please help support our efforts by sending in any used markers you may have around the house- even non-Crayola brands. Thank you in advance for participating and furthering our school’s conservation efforts!

 

Communication of School Closing

When inclement weather prevents us from coming to school or causes us to be late, school closing information can be found on News Channels 2, 4, 5, and Fox 17, the Leaf Chronicle and Clarksville Now.  We will also email and send text notification.  Our website will have any school closing information posted as well.  We will do our best to quickly assess the situation and make an announcement.  We do not follow Montgomery County School System in these closings.

 

Annual Giving

We have many ways to give at Clarksville Academy.  One area of giving is the Clarksville Academy Foundation.  The CA Foundation was created in the summer of 2018 and incorporates our endowed funds. Endowments like Procter and Dan Burden Scholarship are now part of the CA Foundation.  On January 12 we hosted a Leanne Morgan Comedy Show with all proceeds benefiting the CA Foundation.  I’m happy to announce that was raised $17,938 at this one event!  Foundation funds must reach a specific level, determined by the Foundation Board before any monies are spent.  Upon maturity, only the interest from these funds will be used.   If you have any questions about giving, please contact Sally Allen at sallen@clarksvilleacademy.com.
