The PTA Reflections Program is a wonderful opportunity for students to enjoy and share their artistic talents by creating original artwork that reflects on this year’s theme, “I Matter Because…” Students can choose to take a picture, write a poem or story, create a piece of visual art, choreograph a dance, compose a song, or produce a film that shares their ideas of who they are and how they view the world around them. Entries will be selected to advance to the county, state, or even national level. Details for getting started can be found on the PTA website at https://cespta.net/programs/

When you join, please also consider making a COUGAR PATRON DONATION. 100% of your donation will be used to fund programs at our school! Clarksville E.S. PTA is a 501(c)(3) corporation, donations are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law. Thank you for your support!
The Cougar Patron program is a fundraising drive designed to help defray the cost of the many activities and programs sponsored and run by the Clarksville Elementary School (CES) PTA.
We have heard from many families that they prefer writing one check to support their children instead of selling candles, gift wrap, cookies, etc. In fact, this program was so successful last year that we are eliminating all other fundraising.
In addition to your membership, we are asking families for a minimum donation of $50 per child (beyond the membership dues) to support our kids and maintain our current level of programming. The best part is 100% of your money stays at CES, your donation is tax-deductible and you don’t have to sell anything!
The money raised supports many important programs at CES including:
Back to School Welcome Ice Cream Social
Family Fun Run
