October, 2015 - News and Notes to Keep You Connected
A Note From the Principal
We've had a remarkable first quarter of the 2015-16 school year! It was fun to end our day before break with our first PRIDE convocation of the year to celebrate the accomplishments of our students. Check out the picture collages below!
When we return from break, we will look forward to having an opportunity to have all parents in for parent-teacher conferences. This provides a great overview of where your child is at this stage of the year and allows a chance for you and your child's teacher to be sure you are working in tandem for your child's success. We are excited to have you in the building for these important meetings! Please take a minute to look at all of the great student work throughout the halls while you're here!
I hope that the week of fall break allowed you to spend some quality time with your children and to get re-energized for this next important quarter. I'll look forward to seeing you in the building this week!

UPCOMING FAMILY EVENTS
- Oct. 24, 2015 - Nightmare on Elm Drive
For those who are new to Clarks Creek, this event is a fun-filled family evening. Students are welcome to wear Halloween costumes (appropriate for school - nothing too "bloody" or scary!) to the event. There will be a costume contest for those who want to enter, a "haunted house" (with both "scary" and "friendly" hours), trick-or-treating, food, and numerous other activities for the children in attendance.
Special Event Parking and Dismissal
When leaving the building from end-of-day events, please be sure to use the same care in exiting the parking lot as you would at any other time of the day. While being able to leave before the "rush" of car-rider pick-ups and buses is nice, it's not as important as maintaining a safe environment for all of our students and those friends and family attending the events.
We appreciate your help in keeping our parking lots safe.
