Gift Cards for Teachers!

Throughout the year, we like to reward our awesome teachers for all they do for our students. When teachers attend students' extra-curricular events or go the extra mile by helping a colleague, we enter their name into a drawing for gifts. Please help to make this possible by donating a $10 gift card or a gift certificate to our teachers and leave it with our receptionist in the front office; it can be to any place in town. Feel free to place your name on the back of the card so the teachers know which parents they have to thank for this kind donation. If you cannot donate at this time, you may donate a gift card at any time throughout the year. Anything you can donate will be used for the staff throughout the year. Please know that teachers are always thoroughly surprised and appreciative of your kindness toward them. Thank you in advance for helping us recognize our amazing teachers!

Clark Volunteer Core

They work in the shadows. Sometimes also in very public places. Men and women. United by one goal: to see their offspring THRIVE in middle school.

ARE THEY AFRAID? A little bit. Do they know everything? Not YET. BUT THAT DOES NOT STOP THEM from doing what needs doing. Together. For the good of students.

Contact Tiffany Battee to try serving with the Clark Volunteer Core.

Join us! It is your destiny!
