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/

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

Over the course of our first semester one way we have used our annual funds is to purchase a much needed software system for our enrollment management offices.  This new system will help us track students as they inquire about CA and follow them throughout the enrollment process.  It will allow our admissions office to better serve our future and current students.  This is one of the many things that doesn’t merit a tuition increase, but is best served by our annual funds.

As you can see, we have already made strong use of the annual funds already committed, but we need your help to continue to improve our school.  We have plans for additional professional development opportunities, emerging needs like AED machines, technology needs, updating our library to be a Makerspace, and continuing to boost our security with upgraded cameras, mag strike doors and more.  If you have any questions about annual giving, please contact Sally Allen at sallen@clarksvilleacademy.com.
