Superintendent's Message

Welcome to our website! We hope it provides you with the information you are seeking. If not, please use the contact information on this site to call us or simply email us with your questions, comments and/or suggestions. We hope you have a fantastic day! 

Here at Clarksville Schools, we are very thankful, to live in a country where we are free to pursue our dreams and where we have so many educational opportunities to help us accomplish our goals, and live the dream! I hope you make today the day you rededicate yourself to your dream and take advantage of the opportunities this school district provides. There is no doubt that this school can provide you with the skills and knowledge needed to meet the challenges you will face as you strive to seize your dreams. 

Recently I was at an educational conference listening to a speaker discuss the increase in competition our students will face for jobs with nations in the Far East such as China and India. The speaker said something that really encouraged me concerning our nation and our future. His comment was that theses nations had become very good at copying American products. So much so that many of our manufacturing jobs had relocated to that part of the world. However, the one skill that these nations desire the most, yet it continues to elude them, is the creative genius behind the conception of the products they are copying. For you see, it is our freedom and our way of life that allows the human brain to develop in such a way that our creative thoughts cannot be matched by the individuals living in these nations. We have not maintained our monopoly of the exportation of manufactured goods but we do dominate in the global exportation of ideas and creative thought. If we are to continue this domination and secure this nation’s economic future and viability we must encourage our students to dream the impossible dream and strive to equip and support them as they forge their future and our nation’s future. 

As we move forward, I commit to work with our teachers, parents, school board, and community to insure this district is providing the best education we can muster for our children. I hope you all have a blessed and successful experience while here at Clarksville Public Schools! Please call on me if I can be of service. 

David Hopkins, Ed.D.

2015 Clarksville Panther Football Program Wraps Up

2015 Clarksville Panther Football Program Wraps Up

On Monday, November 9th, the Clarksville Panther Football Program wrapped up their 2015 season with a Football Banquet held at First Baptist Church.
The Banquet started with a meal and a highlight video. The video recapped everything from the Ouachita Baptist Team camp, to the Camp Caudle Preseason retreat, all the way to Senior Night.

Coach Cranor took the stage and listed some of the high points from the 2015 season. He explained that the Panthers led the 5A West in passing yards and passing TDs. They also ranked third in the conference in scoring offense. He then went on to list some of the record breaking performances from this year's Panthers. They are as follows:
o Mason Schucker 2,242 yds, 24 Tds, 7 Ints (led 5A West Qbs)
§ Pass Attempts in Game, 69 Vilonia (Old Damon Redmon, 47)
§ Pass Completions in Game, 36 Vilonia(Old Damon Redman, 29)
§ Pass Attempts for Season, 356 (Old Damon Redman, 349)
o Logan Wood, 61 receptions, 1 TD, 596 yds
§ Single Game Reception 15 Vilonia (Old Ryan Rogers, 13)
o Keonnis Graves: 971 yds, 15 Tds (Led 5A West Wrs)
§ Receiving yds in game, 247 Harrison (Old Pierce Curran, 199)
§ Td receptions in Season 15, (Old Ellis Foster, 10)
§ Td receptions in Career 18, (Old Wesliegh Foster, Ryan Rogers, Colton Smith 16)
The coaches went on to pass out Steel Panther awards. These were awarded to the players who made it to all 90 practices throughout the 2015 season. The Panthers practiced 6 days a week for 15 weeks. These boys were awarded a Panther Football helmet (they are pictured above).

The night culminated with the 1440>ME Man of the Year award. This award is nominated by the high school teachers. They are asked to nominate a young man who embodies the philosophy of 1440>ME, a true nature of selflessness. This year's winner was Joel Morehead. He was honored with a standing ovation.

The night was a success and is something the Panthers plan to continue in the future.
