Back To School.png             Dear Families and Friends of Clinton Elementary:

Welcome back!  It was exciting to see so many families at our Open House evening and even more thrilling to see the students on the first day of school!  I was equally as excited to see how many students completed the Principal’s Challenge over the summer!  It was encouraging to see how many families made reading a priority over the summer, as I know you surely had many interesting adventures to fit in along the way. Thank you for your continued commitment to your children’s education!  

A new year is upon us and I’m happy to say that your children will learn so many things here at Clinton Elementary.  The staff is energized and ready to go after the summer break and quickly discovered their students are as well!  Our first days were filled with getting to know you activities, setting up routines and procedures in the classrooms, and learning our way around the building.  We also spent some time introducing our new staff members.  Ms. Munoz will be joining us as one of our 4thgrade teachers, Mrs. Werner joins us as our Upper Wing Resource Room Teacher, Ms. Hill will be our Speech and Language Clinician, and we have several new educational technicians:  Mrs. Greenlaw will instruct students needing our SPIRE program, Ms. Walcott will be working in our Lower Wing Resource Room and both Mrs. Bolduc and Miss Ferguson will be joining us in the Upper Wing Resource Room. We also have Nurse Ballou joining us for part of our week.  All of these new staff members are very excited about being a part of our Clinton Family!  Please be sure to welcome them as you meet and greet!

Finally, I would like to remind you that I am here to support you and your children in any way that I can.  I want each and every child here at Clinton Elementary to feel safe and successful each and every day.  If I can do anything to help you or your child, please feel free to contact me at any time either through email, with a phone call, or stop by and see me in the office.  I am looking forward to another wonderful year and hope to see you soon!                                                                                   
Educationally Yours,
Mrs. Gordon  J

    Just a few reminders:   

  • Please be sure to call the office when there is a change in where your child is going after school.  We would appreciate those calls to come in BEFORE 2, as it gets very busy in the office at the end of the school day. Thank you for your help with this.
  • All students need to wear appropriate footwear for both their physical education classes and also to play on the equipment outside.  No flip-flops are allowed when on the outdoor equipment or in PE class.
  • Please know that we are always vigilant about safety procedures here in MSAD 49.  Your child will be talking with you about how they are practicing both fire drills and lock down drills in their classrooms.  We also check in every visitor to the building through the front doors only. In addition, all staff, as well as our visitors, are identified with a district badge.  Please help us to keep your children safe by following all procedures. Thank you in advance for your kind attention to this matter.
