Giving

Over the past few months, our teachers have been hard at work raising funds for the Africa Teacher In Residence program.  This summer, May25-June 6 thirteen Clarksville Academy teachers will travel to South Africa.  The UK International Tours partnered with Clarksville Academy to offer a once in a lifetime opportunity to share their expertise with township schools to support the educational mission by co-teaching in classrooms, modeling best practices, mentoring teachers, offering professional development by building a bridge to connect purposeful and progressive curriculum.  They will collaborate with South African peers as they celebrate their values, strengthen their teaching practices, and connect creatively and culturally.  To help teachers participate in this wonderful trip, a variety of fundraising has taken place.  In the fall the teachers sponsored a bake sale, the upcoming spring IS dance and Friday’s Sock Hop are just a few of the ways the teachers have worked to raise funds.  Friday’s Sock Hop raised over $1500!    If you are interested in supporting this trip, please contact Sally Allen at sallen@clarksvilleacademy.com.
