Week Ending August 27

Gratitude and Celebration!

Thanks for the over the top and amazing weekly staff breakfast provided by the family of Zachary Lehachi!


Thanks to the MANY parents who attended the parent volunteer meet and greet session this morning! A huge thanks to the following parents who have already been putting in hours at our front desk: Lorna Duplooy, Colleen Vansuetendael, Lisa Lehachi, Paula Crumpler, and alum parent Karen Bartnick.


Full circle celebration! Two Clark grads are now pursuing education degrees and chose to come back to be mentored by their outstanding teachers, Ms. Hutcheson and Mrs. Bartow. Great to see faces of our graduates and know how much they really did learn from our stellar teachers!

Take Care Tuesdays!

Clark student, Nevin Harwood, has been rowing for 5 years with Treasure Coast Rowing Club. Every year TCRC hosts an event to raise money for new boats through a 5K. Physical activity you enjoy is a GREAT way to take care of oneself, so we are glad to see Nevin active and would love to see many Clark students and family walk or run in this upcoming 5K. https://www.treasurecoastrowingclub.com/events

Fun Fact Fridays!

On August 27, 1955, the first edition of “The Guinness Book of Records” is published in Great Britain; it quickly proves to be a hit. Now known as the “Guinness World Records” book, the annual publication features a wide range of feats related to humans and animals.

Early Dismissal from a Scheduled Class (p. 11)


If the student must leave campus before the end of his/her scheduled school day, the following steps must be taken:


1. See Student Services in Room 218.

2. Student Services contacts parent/guardian to obtain permission to leave early.

3. Upon receiving permission, student and parent must sign out in the log book located at the front desk. Before a student can be released to anyone, authorization must be verified through Student Services.


Students scheduled to be in a class in the Clark building are NEVER to leave the building without the knowledge of a Clark employee.
