Clarksville Academy filmed for Channel 5

Clarksville Academy’s school year is off to a brisk start, with new programs, activities and announcements for families and the community. The school mission is to promote academic excellence, moral integrity, and physical and social growth.

News Channel 5 films Clarksville Academy classes

Photojournalist Charlie Woodward and an intern from News Channel 5 visited our campus last week to shoot a feature story for “School Patrol” which airs each Wednesday evening on the 6:00 P.M. news.  Two classrooms, Mrs. Frost’s fourth grade and Mrs. Huggins’ Honors Algebra II, were the focus of the filming.  These reporters were extremely impressed with our school, faculty, and students.  They commented off camera that from their observations while visiting schools across the state, Clarksville Academy is on the leading edge of blending technology with student learning. The scheduled times for airing are:  September 3 at 6:00 P.M. and September 4 at 9:00 A.M. In addition, the story may air on one of the Saturday newscasts.  Please note:  These are scheduled times and are subject to change.

School Photo Day: Individual fall photos for all students in grades PK – 11 will be made on Thursday, September 4.  The photographer recommends that students wear colorful clothing. Pullovers or tee shirts with writing on them do not photograph well.  In a few weeks, parents will receive a proof envelope to view with a selection of packages to order if you wish.  Questions?  Please contact the school office.

Seniors sell Smart Cards
: Members of the Class of 2009 are selling Clarksville/Montgomery County Smart Cards to raise funds for their class trip.  If you are interested in purchasing a Smart Card, please contact a senior or send $12.00 for each card you wish to purchase to your child’s teacher and the card will be sent to you.  Thank you for supporting our seniors!

Sports passes available
: Season passes for all home sports events are on sale in the Business Office for $50.00 each for students or adults.  This will allow the pass holder admission to all home, regular season games.  See Mr. Turnage or Mrs. Henson to purchase your pass.

Magazine sale underway
: Last year we had requests from parents to receive magazine sale packets early in order to allow extra time to contact out-of-town friends and relatives. Although the magazine sale officially begins on September 11, the sales packets were distributed early this year.  We hope this allows every family to reach the goal of $100 in sales per student by the final turn-in date of September 23.
