Wednesday, June 3 Fireworks!

We will have our annual 5th grade fireworks at 2:15 pm.

Students will need to bring a 2 liter of DIET COKE and a package of the BLUE MENTOS. This will create the "fireworks".

Friday, June 5 Clap-out

Friday will be an early release day and the last day here at Clara Love for our 5th Graders. We have a tradition of lining the halls and having the 5th Graders parade through the hallways while the rest of the school claps us right out the front door. We will begin our clap out around 12:00.

Look for another newsletter that will give you suggestions for your child during the summer...

Keeping your Child Safe Online


The monthly topic for guidance curriculum in grades K-12 is Internet safety. In order to address this topic, guidance lessons in k-5 will focus on grade appropriate lessons on Internet safety. This will address the skills of decision-making, communication skills, responsible behavior, and interpersonal effectiveness. Please talk with your child about internet safety.


The district will host "Keeping your Child Safe Online" with guest speaker Aisha Saleem, Assistant US Attorney for the Northern District of Texas. This will be held May 12, 2015 at 7p.m. at the Northwest ISD Central Administration Building.
