Upper School News: April 4 – April 8, 2016

Key Club

Fifteen members of the Clarksville Academy Key Club traveled to Franklin, TN on March 18th to attend the Kentucky- Tennessee District Convention. While attending the convention,  all members participated in keynote sessions, caucus meetings, officer training sessions, social mixers, service projects, and a dance. The service project focused on preparing goodie grab bags for the Ronald McDonald House at a local hospital.

Individual members participated in individual competitions, winning awards in most all events. Parker Rice competed in the Talent Competition playing the piano, he was on the finalist call back where he played in front of a crowd of 500 attendees. Parker also competed in the Impromptu Essay competition and won! Grace Pollard competed in the Video contest, she earned  3rd place honor with her production of a  DVD using pictures from our club events. Jenny Li and Christy Zheng brought home 1st place honors with their original drawing for the Poster Contest.

The club earned a 3rd place award for Achievement, this award is based on the number of service hours and monetary donations each club earns during the school year. Our club has earned over 1600 service hours and donated more than $1,535 dollars within our community.

Mrs. Moore and Mrs. Little, co-sponsors, are very proud of the individuals awards and club accomplishments!

Photos

Many of you take photos at various events and activities around school. We encourage you to share these with our Marketing/PR office as well as our yearbook staff by using the email photos@clarksvilleacademy.com. This email is designed for students and parents to send pictures taken throughout the school year. We encourage you to caption your photo or to write a sentence or two with the event name, students pictured in the photo and the date it was taken. We do not guarantee that every photo will be used, but we look forward to seeing your pictures.

 

Box Tops & Campbell’s Labels

This is a reminder that CA collects Campbell’s labels and Box Tops through our CAA. The money raised from this project funds various school improvement projects. Last year we raised over $2000 through the Box Tops program alone! Please turn yours into your child’s teacher or Ms. Turnage in the front office.
