Clinton Cougar Newsletter

September 2022

Dear Clinton Families,

It's been great to have the students back in the building. We already have some fun family events planned for September, so please watch for those in the calendar below.

Just as a reminder- school starts at 8:45. Students should not arrive prior to 8:30, as there is no supervision before then. Students coming for breakfast can come at 8:25.

The following parents will continue to serve on the Community Council this year:

Finishing the 2nd year of their two year term:

Tarrin Philpott

Alesha Chatterton

Rebecca Dastrup

These parents have volunteered to join Community Council this year:

Roslyn Petersen

Jennifer Merrill

If anyone else would like to volunteer, please let Mrs. Lundell know by Sept. 15th. If there are move volunteers than open positions, then an election will be held. Meetings are held after school about 5-6 times during the school year.

Thank you for supporting our teachers as we all work together to help your student be successful!

Friday School Spirit Day!

Our classes are having a school spirit competition each Friday to see who can show the most school spirit. Students should wear a school shirt, blue shirt, or grey shirt in order to be counted towards the class total for the most amazing school spirit. The winning class gets to display the spirit wreath for the following week.

Garden Area Update

We are so excited to have our Garden area updated. It's now being used as an outdoor calming corner, where students can read a book, or otherwise sit and enjoy a quiet, calm and beautiful space.

Counselor's Corner

This year the counseling theme is going to be focusing on gratitude. Students will learn how to flip the gratitude switch and learn how to find gratitude even in frustrating situations. Gratitude is more than just a feeling. Students will learn how to let gratitude be a verb by flipping their gratitude switch.

F= Find the Frustration

L=Look for What’s Awesome

I=Initiate Gratitude

P=Power Up With "Gratifuel"

Fieldtrip Chaperones and Volunteers

If you are interested in being a volunteer or fieldtrip chaperone, then you need to complete a Davis School District background check. These can take some time to get an appointment, and have completed, so earlier is better. There is a one time cost of $28. Please let Mrs. Lundell know if you need help with the fee.

You must call for an appointment with the Davis Human Resource Department for a background check. 801-402-5722

First Floor

45 East State Street

Farmington, Utah 84025-0588

Bring valid ID

Once a volunteer has successfully completed the background check, it is valid indefinitely, according to current state law. The background check will allow you to volunteer for any of your children for as long as they are in the Davis School District.

Waterford for Pre-Kindergarten

If you have a child that will be entering Kindergarten this year or if you have a 4-year old who will be entering kindergarten in 2023, we would like to invite you to participate in Waterford Upstart. Waterford Upstart provides four-year-old children access to the highest form of academic support in their early education at no cost to participants: The average Waterford Upstart graduate enters kindergarten reading at nearly a first-grade level and maintains their gains for years to come.
