Dear Families and Friends of Clinton Elementary:


                  If you haven’t already noticed, we have been extremely busy again here at Clinton Elementary.  The first item on the list was parent teacher conferences.  What a wonderful opportunity to get to know our families a bit better and discuss the accomplishments of your children! In addition, we honored our Students of the Month at our monthly assembly as well as discussing our Halloween plans to dress up like book characters and have our wonderful PTO members provide the students with a snack and some activities at the end of the day.  We included a parade around the building so the students could see all of the characters that were here with us on Halloween.  It was great fun for all!

Back To School.pngOctober also brought with it the celebration of Bus Safety Week.  Our bus drivers joined us for a presentation around bus safety.  The students and staff became well informed on this topic, and we would like to thank our transportation department for organizing this and to our bus drivers here at Clinton Elementary for keeping us all safe.  It was also Fire Safety Fire Fighter.pngmonth and we would like to thank the Clinton Fire Department for coming over and presenting to our students and also for welcoming some of our classes to the fire station.

Although I am not a “fan” of the winter approaching, I am brightened by the fall colors and the changing of the trees.  I am reminded that we all have something to give, even if in a small way, to our children in the community.  I am encouraged by the family feel I experience each and every day working with the staff and students here at Clinton Elementary.  In addition, I am so thankful to have found such a caring, energetic, professional staff to work with.  It is a pleasure to walk through the doors of this school every day. Thank you for your continued support of your children’s education.  Please know it is greatly appreciated!
