Clarks Creek students have PRIDE!

Ensuring that ALL students carry themselves with pride and confidence beyond our doors as honorable, skillful learners and thinkers, ready to enrich our world.

Dear Staff,

Tomorrow is Mother's Day! I hope you are able to spend time with the ones you love to celebrate! Whether you are officially a mother or not, each and every one of you fills that role in many respects when you work with our students each and every day! With that in mind, take some time to pamper yourself and enjoy the special day!

It's going to be a great week!

Welcome Back, Vicki!!

Vicki will return to her position on Monday! We are all so thrilled to have her back and so grateful to Kristy for filling in as treasurer and all of the office staff for helping to cover in her absence.

To-Do List

  • All of the end-of-year forms that will need to be turned in before the end of the year will be coming your way on Monday or Tuesday. Let me know if you have questions about any of them.
  • Let me know by Monday if someone from your grade level will attend the meeting at 2:00 on Wednesday with the Renaissance Learning rep in regard to STAR testing.
  • Check out the summer training opportunities that were sent in an earlier email. Please let me know by Wednesday if you will be attending any of those.


  • The correct cardstock came in, so if you do not already have your placement cards on hand, you will get those Monday or Tuesday. I will also put the stickers in your mailbox that you can use to mark the appropriate spots on the right side of the cards. Please be very careful in getting those stickers on there, as we use those heavily in organizing groups.
  • Be sure to let Randa know if you are expecting several parents for any upcoming events.
  • Kindergarten Screenings will be taking place in the main office all day on Thursday. If you need assistance, please call the office and request help with a situation rather than sending students up.
