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 fifth 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 them 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!  This 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 19th

            The month of May proved to be another busy one 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, 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 assembly and the Clinton Masons presented some of our students with new bikes and helmets to go with them!  We would like to thank them for their generosity and their support of our school and the importance of daily reading.  Finally, we welcomed our newest members of the Clinton Elementary family as we 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. 

            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 over the summer will allow your child to maintain the skills they acquired over the course of the school year.  There will also be a bit of math and writing included in the summer challenge folder as well.  When the students return in August they can give their teacher that work and we will have a celebration of that learning!  In addition, 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!
