Dear Families and Friends of Clinton Elementary:

            Well here we are yet again at the end of the school year.  It seems almost unbelievable that this is the end of my fourth year here at Clinton Elementary!  It has been a pleasure getting to know all of you and your children.  I look forward to the summer months and the break, but also will be more than happy to welcome your children again in August for yet another year of learning!  It will be sad to see the 6th graders leave us and we wish them well at the Junior High!  The final two weeks will be packed with last minute activities, lessons, assemblies, field days, and field trips as the year comes to a close on Tuesday, June 20th.  The students will be dismissed at 11 on this day.  We will send them home with lunch if they take hot lunch.

            The month of May proved to be another busy month for us as here at Clinton Elementary School.  We took time to celebrate our staff during Staff Appreciation Week, thanking them for all they do here at Clinton Elementary.  I would like to thank the PTO for all they did that week for us!  They were truly amazing and we hope that more of you will join our group in the future! Our Kindergarten, Third and Fourth graders had a visit from the Planetarium, our Kindergarten students made a trip to the Flood Farm, and our 6th graders had their traditional trip to Boston at the end of the month. We also celebrated our Students of the Month at our monthly assembly, and we also gave away bikes to the students who read for our Bikes for Books program, sponsored by the Clinton Masons.  We thank them for doing this and are very excited for the students who received the new bikes and helmets.  We also registered our Kindergarten students for the upcoming school year.  It was a pleasure to meet them and their families and we look forward to having them with us in August!  Don’t forget about the PreK program as well!  If you haven’t already filled out an application for that and you have a child who will be 4 years old by October 15th, please consider our program.  It has been a wonderful addition to our school community and we would like to see it continue to grow!

            In our final weeks together, we will work hard to get in those last few important lessons as your child prepares to move on to the next grade level.  Staff members will also have conversations about how your child can keep up with their learning over the summer.  Reading, writing and a few math facts will go a long way!!  Speaking of reading, I have again issued a principal’s challenge this year. Remember, a bit of reading, writing and math over the summer will allow your child to maintain the skills they acquired over the course of the school year. In August, we will have a celebration of the learning that happens over the summer!  Also, to help with the challenge, I would like to offer my time to the students, as I am here working over the summer.  On Tuesdays and Thursdays, either before or after the lunch that is provided during the summer, I would like to take time to read with your child.  Not only can they have lunch here at school, but this would also be a great way for them to complete the challenge!  Please consider this as we go through the summer months! 

            Finally, I would like to thank you all for another wonderful year here at Clinton Elementary!  As always, please feel free to call, email, or stop by the office with any concerns or questions you may have.  A true partnership between home and school is what benefits each and every one of your children!

                                                   Have a wonderful, safe, relaxing summer!Illustration Of The Sun With Clouds.png
