SPECIAL MESSAGE FROM MRS. FRENCH

We want to recognize the students who participated in the Perennial Math Tournament last weekend at Mt. Hood Community College.  They did a fantastic job!  Clarkes Elementary School sent two teams.  One team was made up of 3rd-5th graders and the other was 3rd grade only.  All students should be congratulated for participating and being so enthusiastic about math.  Also, thank you to their families for getting them to the tournament.  Our 3rd grade team came in 3rd place out of 5 teams at their grade level.  There were a total of 235 students and 51 teams over all.  Students came from all around the Portland metro area.  The competition is tough at this tournament.  All of our students should be commended for a great job.

3rd Grade Team:  Violet Bickford, Lea Souza, Lane Teerman and Jaimyn Burlachenko

3-5th Grade Team:  Joli Watson, Sequoia Dreilinger, Lawson Linder & Tillee Muffett

 

LOUD & CLEAR

This month, Oregon Children’s Theatre is in residence, providing their LOUD & CLEAR Workshop for grades K-5 every Tuesday for four weeks beginning May 25, 2017. Loud & Clear experientially teaches a series of exercises.  In the Loud & Clear workshop an experienced actor/teacher will lead students through a series of physical exercises that explain and demonstrate the techniques of oral presentation.  The four 45-minute sessions will provide an interactive, experiential and positive learning environment with clear, non-personal feedback.  Loud and Clear also includes a 90-minute in-service for teachers.  We are grateful to the Clarkes PTG for providing the funds that make this learning enhancement opportunity possible. Thank you, Oregon Children’s Theatre.

REMINDERS

  • Please call the office if your child will be late or absent.  The office makes safety calls each morning by 9:30 when students are marked absent without prior notice.  This is a safety issue.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      

  • When providing your own transportation, please drop off your child/children off no earlier than 5 minutes before the start time, (8:55 am – 8:50 if they are eating breakfast) and please pick them up promptly after school.  Also if you are picking your children up after school, please send a note with

    them or give the office a call before 2 pm.  For safety reasons we need to know if students are not riding the bus.  Any and all information regarding a student being picked up or a change of destination must be relayed directly to the office since we are responsible for students.  If we have not received a note to hold your child, he/she will be sent on the bus to their regular destination. 

  • When a student arrives late, parents please have him/her check into the office before going to class.  Students arriving more than 5 minutes after start time are Tardy.  Students leaving more than 5 minutes before release time are Tardy.
