Welcome to a new year at the ClarkeElementary
hope you have enjoyed a restful and rejuvenating summer as we prepare to kick
off the 2017-2018 school year. I feel
honored to work with such a highly qualified and dedicated staff. The students and families of Clarke are
fortunate to have such devoted and caring teachers who instill a love of
learning in every child.
Also, I email a weekly newsletter
to keep families informed of important dates and events. It’s called the Clarke
Happenings. Please be on the look out for this important information.
I also want to express how hard
the Clarke School Staff has worked over the past couple of weeks.
They have outdone themselves
getting their classrooms ready to welcome students to a new school year. The rooms and hallways look amazing and
vibrant; a beautiful learning environment for all. Also, a huge thank you goes
out to our custodians Ms. Walsh and Mr. Gatchell for spending tireless hours making
the school look organized, shiny and clean! Ms. Foucht has also worked hard
getting our school ready to welcome back our students and families for the
upcoming school year!
