FUN RUN

Clarksville Academy kicked off the 2nd Annual Fun Run last week! We saw an awesome first day of sales with 127/191 lower school students participating! We were blown away! We hope that all our students in PreK-12 will participate. Students are eligible for a variety of prizes suitable for all ages! This is a major fundraiser for our school and our goal is a big one–$35,000. Security Director Nick Williamson identified areas of improvement for to our security on campus. We felt this was a great thing for our Fun Run to benefit. Below you will find a list of items that all donations will go toward. Donations can be made through the Marketplace and that link can be shared online! The winning family is also eligible for a prize. We look forward to another great year of the run. Please contact Sally Allen at sallen@clarksvilleacaemy.com if you have questions or comments!

Security Director, Nick Williamson identified several areas where we would like to see upgrades, these are listed below for your information.

Speed Bumps ($314),
Radios ($4,000)

If we meet our school wide goal of $35,000 for the FUN RUN we will go HALF DAY—leaving at 11:30 on FRIDAY, OCT 11!!!! This is the Friday prior to Fall Break! We need everyone to participate in order to meet this goal!

**This will not impact the time spent at LBL for our 5th grade class. These students typically arrive back to campus by 1pm and will enjoy lunch on the bus in order to arrive back to campus by noon (allowing for traffic to clear).

School Photo Day

Retakes will take place on Oct 22. We will also photograph all Lower School Class photos.

1st Grade PET SHOW

This annual event will take place on October 10 at 8:30 on Procter Court. We invite everyone to attend.

Box Tops

CA has always used the box tops label program to earn extra money for our school. We have been so lucky in the past for all your support for the program. Over the years we have earned thousands of dollars for our school. This year it is even easier! Simply download the Box Tops for Education app from the app store, pick Clarksville Academy as your school and start scanning your receipts! It’s as easy as that! So start scanning!

Publix

Did you know that CA is a Publix Partner? It’s easy to help us raise money for our school by logging your shopping. Visit publix.com/partners and choose Clarksville Academy. Then enter your phone number each time you check out. It’s that easy!

Kroger

Did you know you can register your Kroger Plus for CA? Every time you use your Kroger Plus card a portion of your bill will be credited to CA! It’s that easy!

YearBook

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
