Boosterthon

This year instead of Magazine Sales CA will participate in the Boosterthon Fun Run!  This program kicks off Tuesday with an exciting Pep Rally for the students!  The pledging portion will run from October 16-25.  Our PK-5th grade students will participate in the Cougar Fun Run on Thursday, October 25 at the Sports Complex.  Grades 7-12 will compete in a Color Run the afternoon of October 25 also at the Sports Complex. Due to 6th grade traveling to Fall Creek Falls, they will have a special GLOW Run on Monday, October 29 in the gym! Students will get pledges for the number of laps they will run. All donations will be done online to make it quick and easy!   Intermediate and Upper School students must raise at least $50 in order to participate.  This exciting event is sure to be fun for all ages!  Watch your email for more information!  All students should register on funrun.com

Winter Carnival

The Winter Carnival will be held on December 1 from 10-2.  Reminder  that each grade or class will have a game in the Reindeer Games area.  More information is coming soon!  We also encourage organizations, clubs or athletic teams to use this as an opportunity to raise money for their group!  The Carnival will include Reindeer Games (grade/class booths), Mistletoe Market (larger vendor area), the Jingle Bell Jog, FaLaLa Food Court, Santa’s Silent Auction and more!  If you are interested in being a vendor at the Winter Carnival contact Nicole Williamson at 931-801-2488 or nicole.aquino615@gmail.com.

 

CAPA

The Clarksville Academy Parent Association (CAPA, formerly CAA) is getting a new name! This association will host a variety of events throughout the year for parents, guardians, and grandparents to get involved by volunteering your time and/or contributions. We certainly hope you will join us in making CA an even greater place for our children, faculty and staff!  Please contact Beth Mabry on how to get involved: bethfmabry@gmail.com.

 

Box Tops, Publix Cards, Kroger Plus Cards

Did you know that you that CA takes box tops for education labels from various products?  Last year CA was able to receive several hundred dollars from these labels alone!  Simply cut and keep labels and send to school in a Ziploc bag.  We also offer Publix shopping cards (a key tag to use when checking out).  If you scan this key tag at every visit, CA receives a portion of your purchase.  Kroger will also donate to CA for everyone who registers their Kroger plus with CA.  It’s quick and easy, just visit their website!
