Important Information for Kindergarten Families

On Friday, June 7th we will be hosting a Kindergarten visitation Day for our new incoming Kindergarten families.  On this day Ms. Morgan and Ms. Wheeler will also be screening our incoming Kindergarteners.  Therefore, there will be NO SCHOOL for our current Kindergarteners on this day. Please mark your calendars and Plan accordingly.

March Spirit Day
Legendary Literary Celebrities 
Friday, March 1, 2019
Come to school dressed as a famous character from a book you have read.
Harry Potter? Cat in the Hat? Abraham Lincoln? Amelia Bedelia?
We all enjoy a good story so bring a favorite one to life by dressing as someone from a book. It can be a real person, a fictional character or even an animal.
Be creative!!! And bring the book if you would like!!
We will also have a Clarke Shark Huddle that day and some students will be invited to share who they are dressed as and why they chose that character.


 

Read Across America and Community Reader Day

In honor of Dr. Seuss’s birthday, the Clarke School has planned a "Community Readers Day" on March 1st, which is also "Read Across America Day." We have invited members of our community to join us for coffee and refreshments at 9:00 in the Clarke Library.  Then 4th Grade Leaders will escort our readers to the classroom in which they will read.  Our classroom teachers have chosen their favorite picture books to be read. The Clarke PTO has generously offered to pay for them.  The books will then be donated to teachers' classroom libraries

Our esteemed Community Readers are, Superintendent Pamela Angelakis, SHS Principal Dennis Kohut, Director of Student Support Services, Martha Raymond, Town Administrator, Sean Fitzgerald, School Resource Officer, Det. Rose Cheever, Det. Candace Delano, Det. Ted Delano, PTO Member, Kim Martin Epstein, School Committee Member, Suzanne Wright, and Swampscott Human Resource Director, Julie DeLillo.

We are all truly looking forward to this exciting event!
