It's that time of the year again. Starting today, the Clarksville School District, as well as West Clark Community Schools, will be back in the classroom today to start the school year.

This year the Clarksville School District will be implementing a new robotics program thanks to a grant from the TechPoint Foundation. This program will give 3rd and 4th graders the opportunity to be a part of a robotics team, compete and gain useful STEM knowledge at a young age!

Clarksville Elementary has also been chosen as a Disney in Schools participant for the 17-18 school year. This is the only southern Indiana school chosen along with four other Louisville elementary schools!

Parents can contact the front offices of their buildings for any questions or concerns they have on the first day of school.
