YAIPAKS Cold Weather Drive

Be Hope, Bring Joy. For kids by kids

YAIpaks Outreach is an amazing local organization that helps the homeless in our area. Next week CAPA and CA Interact will team up to collect winter items for needy children in our area. Items needed are coats, winter children’s clothing, and winter pajamas. We are also looking to collect NEW socks for both boys and girls (all sizes) and little girl underwear. We will take coats in all sizes, but need winter clothing items in children’s sizes. We look forward to your help in stocking their closets before it’s gets winter!! Donations can be brought to CA the week of November 12-15. More information will be sent via the CAPA email this week!

Intermediate & Upper School Head of School Search

Last week we posted the positions of Intermediate and Upper School Head of School. This will be a regional search for both positions. Our goal is to have the permanent positions filled before the end of the year. We have been fortunate to have Mrs. Denise Walker (Upper School) and Mrs. Alicia McQueen (Intermediate School) act as Interim in these positions for the past few months. Both ladies have said they will apply for the permanent positions. Job descriptions and information on how to apply can be found on our website under Career Opportunities.

Weather Postings

It’s only November and already we have had a snow day! As a reminder to all families, snow day announcements or late notices will be posted on our main home page (across the top as an alert), on all social media platforms (Facebook, Instagram & Snapchat), sent via email and posted on all Nashville area stations.

Model UN

We had 28 students travel to Murfreesboro to compete in the Model United Nations event sponsored by the YMCA. This year Clarksville Academy was fortunate enough to have two students serve as officers, Will Mabry served as VP of the General Assembly, while Lily Butler served as Justice on the International Court. The team of Garrett Burger, Shaun Patel, Elvis Smith, and Daniel Loos received the honor of Top 10 Outstanding Bill. Bella Allen, Caroline Johnston and Hadley Wilson’s bill was sent to the Summit and was recommended to the General Assembly.


Annual Giving is set to kick off very soon! We hope your family will support this important campaign. Annual Giving is used to offset the overall budget for those things not covered by tuition alone and is also used for focus areas. We’ve set aside 5 areas of focus this year and hope you will consider supporting them. Watch your mailbox for more information!

If you have pictures you’d like considered for possible inclusion in the 19-20 yearbook, download the Replay It app and send photos our way. Set up is simple. You can always email your photos to any member of the yearbook staff, but the app saves quite a few steps and makes our staff more efficient.

As always, every student receives a yearbook as part of their tuition and fees. This year, students are able to get personalization on their yearbook cover for a small fee. You can order this for your
student(s) at Jostens.com. From their website, search for our school and select yearbook. You should be able to order and pay for personalization there. If you have any questions, please feel free to email ldrake@clarksvilleacademy.com
