Regional Shakespeare Competition

Madeline O’Connor (Freshman) represented Clarksville Academy the Regional Shakespeare Competition in Nashville last Saturday. While she did not place in the competition, she represented CA so well reciting the Fairy’s Monologue from A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Sonnet 12. Thank you, Maddy and Congratulations!

Full School Day Friday

An email was sent over the weekend detailing our change in schedule for this Friday, March 13.

The scheduled Friday, March 13 Professional Development day for Faculty and Staff will be converted to a regular school day.

All students will have school on Friday, March 13th

Teacher and staff development, which is very important and a requirement for our accreditation with SACS CASI, will be revised and conducted in smaller 30-minute sessions after school between now and the end of the school year.

Intermediate and Upper school students’ class schedule will be regular on M-F to provide teachers face-to-face instruction time with the students each day this week. 

Questions should be addressed either to Gina Goostree, Lower School Head, Tracy Burkhart, Intermediate School Head or Erica Coleman, Upper School Head or Kay Drew, Head of School.

 

Re-enrollment

We are currently undergoing re-enrollment here at CA. Families should submit their re-enrollment contracts before March 10. All returning families have their space secured for the 2015-2016 school year until March 10. After this date we will begin open enrollment for any student in our community. If you have questions regarding reenrollment please see the Business Office.

 

FCA

FCA will meet each Wednesday at 7:15 AM in Coach Chuck Holt’s room. We invite everyone to attend!

 

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.
