Happy Sunday Eagles!

Welcome to Week 3 at Clyde Erwin!

We had many parents attend our Afterschool Arts Academy Registration Night. Thank you all for coming and completing the paperwork. Confirmation letters will go home this week.

This year we will be focusing on a character trait monthly. Students will nominate a classmate that demonstrates that trait in their class to be the Eagle of the Month. Those students and their families will be invited to our Eagle of the Month breakfast and their picture will be displayed in our hallway. This month we are focusing on respect. Please encourage your child to practice showing respect daily with their peers, teachers, and at home. They are excited for this new opportunity.

We are looking for parents to join our Strategic Planning Team! This team meets monthly and works together to set goals for the school, identify new initiatives, and sets the direction for the year. Parents may attend in person or virtually. Our first meeting is on Wednesday, September 15. Please let Dr. Howard know if you are interested. You may call the school, send a DOJO message or email at

Our first Fall Festival Planning Meeting will be on Wednesday, September 8 at 5pm. Please meet us in the media center, we'll have a Zoom link for those who are unable to attend face to face. We look forward to seeing everyone to plan a fun event for our students.
