Clinton Elementary School
April Bear Facts!
Dear Clinton Families,
Fondly, Jennifer Connors
My son and our dog Marlie.
Things your can control and things you cannot control!
These colorful bears are popping up all over South Orange and Maplewood.
A Special Reader
Essex County Freeholder Carlos Pomares had the pleasure of reading one of his favorite children's books, "Just As I am, The Story of Rusty Roy" to five classes at Clinton School. In celebration of Read Across America, he shared this story that featured his good friend Roy B. Yokelson and his car Rusty and Himself as Carlos the Cab. The story encourages acceptance for people who may be different than you. In this story, Rusty Roy was the only rusty car in the bunch of shiny cars. When Mack the Monster Truck ridicules Roy for being different, a fleet of shiny and restored cars (his pals) comes to his defense. It was great to see the students recognize the real-world application of the lessons taught in this story. In real life, Roy's car is very rusty...and, like in the story, beloved by his family and friends, including his pals at Bloomfield Cruisers.
