Inspiring innovation with STEM
Students created rockets at MakerMobile

CLARKSVILLE, Ind.— A 32’ long trailer, built to inspire innovation and help students expand their STEM skills, rolled over to Clarksville High School and Clarksville Elementary School on Monday, Aug. 20.

Students from both schools broke out into groups to visit the trailer. They used laser cutters, 3D printers, and more to create their own rockets and other items.

“Expanding our students’ exposure to STEM opportunities and how those relate to real-world challenges will help our students see how what they are learning in the classroom will apply to their lives and careers after school,” Scott Gardner, College and Career Readiness Coordinator.

The visit of the MakerMobile was funded by a grant to MakerMobile from the Community Foundation of Southern Indiana.

Clarksville Schools to offer FREE meals to ALL students

Clarksville Community Schools will be offering FREE breakfasts and lunches to ALL students, regardless of income, starting this school year. This program will be at all of CCSC schools: Clarksville Elementary, Clarksville Middle, Clarksville High, and Renaissance Academy.

Clarksville Community Schools has been chosen to participate in the federal Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) program, which provides federal reimbursement for the majority of the costs associated with offering free meals. The rest of the costs are expected to be paid for out of A La Carte (extras such as baked chips or extra entrees) purchases, which will still be for sale.

“We are excited to be able to offer this program to all our students,” said Superintendent Tina Bennett. “Now all students will be able to eat a free breakfast and lunch every day. When students aren’t worried about being hungry, they can focus in the classroom.”

Every student will be notified of these changes via mail. Families needing assistance with textbook fees will still need to apply for those via paper application.

Welcome Back Walk 2018

Welcome Back Walk 2018

About 50 teachers and staff members walked the neighborhoods in Clarksville on Aug. 1 to welcome students back to school.

The second annual Welcome Back Walk was started last year as a way to help ease the fears of those students who are starting in a new school building. Teachers and staff walked to the houses of incoming kindergarten, fifth and ninth grades to say hello, take a photo, and give each student a drawstring backpack filled with goodies for the new school year.

“We know that starting in a new school building can cause some anxiety,” said Tara Schmelz, communications specialist and event organizer. “We hope that by visiting with those students that we help ease any jitters and help students feel confident for their first day of school.”

Sponsors for the Welcome Back Walk include REALTOR Mark Ridings, CCSC Alumni Association, Kroger, Sams Club, Target and Krispy Kreme.

Update: Pack the Bus

4th Annual Pack the Bus Update

Clarksville, Ind.–The 4th annual Pack the Bus event was a great success, bringing in both school supplies and financial donations to help students start the 2018 school year off strong.

The event, organized by Clarksville Community Schools in partnership with One Vision Federal Credit Union, involved setting a bus up outside of One Vision, in Clarksville. Inside of the bank, people dropped off school supplies and/or financial donations.

Enough school supplies were collected to help EVERY student who requested help! Each teacher and counselor in the district also received a large bag filled with school supplies for their classrooms.

A total of $2,450 was collected as well to pay for additional school supplies– $2,000 of that from the Clarksville Police Department.

Thank you, everyone, for helping this important event be a success!
