Dear Families and Friends of Clinton Elementary:

                  I really can’t believe that the Christmas holiday is upon us!  Here at Clinton Elementary, it certainly is a busy time of year.  There is so much happening in our little school with the big heart that the three weeks before our Christmas holiday will just fly by!

                  The month of December will be very busy for us, as we have many activities planned for our students to celebrate the holiday, but also to celebrate them!  We will have our annual visit from the reindeer and the “Elf on the Shelf” as well as our trip to see the Festival of Trees.  We will be treated to an annual traditional wonderful musical celebration, as our chorus and band concert is on Wednesday, December 6th  (at the Williamson Center). We will have our Student of the Month celebration on Friday, December 15th.  The Student Council will sponsor another spirit day on Friday, the 1st  – wear a hat and/or donate a hat and donate a dollar (or whatever you can give) to the Hats for the Homeless day, and they will also sponsor a pajama/movie day on Thursday, December 21st. 

                  I would like to take this opportunity to wish you and your family a very healthy, happy holiday season.  Enjoy the time with your children.  Days, weeks and months fly by so very quickly that we need to take all the time that we can and spend it with family and friends.  Stay safe if you are travelling and rest, relax, and rejuvenate as we prepare for a whole new year!

                 Finally, thank you for all you do to support your children in their daily work, as well as their homework.  It takes all of us working together to make their school experience a memorable, rewarding one.  Remember my door is always open, should you need to talk with me about any concerns or ideas you may have.  A great place to start would be for you to attend the monthly PTO meeting, which will be held on Thursday, December 14th.  Hope to see you there!

                                                                                                                          Educationally Yours,
Mrs. Gordon  :)

PLEASE SEND YOUR CHILD DRESSED FOR THE WEATHER.  WE DO HAVE OUTSIDE RECESS IN THE MORNING AND AT LUNCH TIME.  IT’S DEFINITELY TIME FOR WINTER COATS, HATS, AND GLOVES.  I AM SURE WE WILL BE NEEDING BOOTS AND SKI PANTS IN NO TIME!

DROP OFF TIME IS 8:10.  WE HAVE STAFF ON DUTY BEGINNING AT THAT TIME.  PLEASE HAVE YOUR CHILDREN ARRIVE AS CLOSE TO THAT TIME AS POSSIBLE.  IT IS A SAFETY CONCERN FOR US IF THEY ARE WAITING OUTSIDE THE FRONT OF THE BUILDING WITHOUT SUPERVISION.  THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP WITH THIS!

JUST ANOTHER REMINDER THAT DURING THE WEEK OF DECEMBER 4TH, WE WILL BE ADDING AN HOUR ONTO THE END OF OUR SCHOOL DAY TO MAKE UP FOR THE THIRD LOST DAY FROM OUR STORM.  STUDENTS WILL BE DISMISSED AT 3:30.  THANK YOU!
