January 2023 - Clark Updates


December was a special month at Jeffrey Clark School. Report Cards were important to update families on student academic and social development.

The EG Tree Lighting, Festive Days, Holiday Concerts, and Classroom Parties were just a few highlights from the month of December. Joy, happiness, and a sense of community were felt throughout the building.

In January, we will return for 2023 with excitement and energy. The Great Kindness Challenge begins on January 23, 2023.

Students have an early dismissal, 12:55 PM, on December 22nd. The building is closed to our students from December 23, 2022, through January 2, 2023.

School opens for the New Year on January 3, 2023.

School is closed on January 16, 2023, for Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.
