What's Happening In Grades 3-5

Clever Families,

We are off to a great start at Clever! This is the first monthly family newsletter for the 2019-2020 school year. Each month we will be e-mailing a monthly newsletter highlighting important events and celebrating our school! In addition to the newsletter, we will use Facebook and SeeSaw to communicate.

Thank you,

Kelly Hobbs, Principal

Be safe, be kind, be responsible

At Clever we are focusing on the three main practices of being safe, being kind, and being responsible. We are encouraging students to recognize they are in charge of themselves and ultimately control their own actions, attitudes, and moods. Ask your child how they are practicing these not only at school but at home too!

Attendance

Please ensure your child is in attendance at school. We miss them when they are gone! Anytime a student is absent is counts against our attendance percentage, even if it is an excused absence. Students who attend school regularly feel more connected to their community, develop important social skills and friendships, and are significantly more likely to graduate from high school, setting them up for a strong future!

Good attendance includes arriving on time and not leaving school early. Our learning begins each day at 8:00 a.m. and students are dismissed at 3:20 p.m. (1:20 p.m. on Fridays).


Below is the attendance per grade level for the month of August:

3rd grade-96.44%

4th grade-97.29%

5th grade-95.06%

3-5 total-96.31%

Our attendance goal is 96% or higher!



Transportation Changes

As a reminder, if you are needing to make a change in your child's daily transportation you must call into the office BEFORE 2:00 Monday-Thursday and BEFORE 12:00 on Friday. This ensures adequate time to communicate to our teachers and students any transportation changes.

The Leader in Me

Educators at Clever are beginning their first year of Leader in Me training. Leader in Me focuses on the idea that everyone can be a leader. Be on the look out for more information regarding the Leader in Me!

Communication

Be sure to "like" our new Clever Schools 3-5 page! Also, teachers and offices will be posting on SeeSaw. These are great communication tools we utilize throughout the day to keep you informed of the great things happening here at Clever!
