"A" Honor Roll

As Clara Oliver Elementary School strives to increase academic achievement they developed an incentive program to reward students who have shown stellar academic performance. Atkinson Toyota partnered with the campus to recognize students who were listed on the "A" Honor Roll. Principal Freeman entered every student on the "A" Honor Roll into a drawing for two bicycles donated by the dealership. The bikes were presented during the Six Weeks Awards Assembly to well deserving students who have shown leadership around the campus and exhibit academic excellence. As a result of this partnership, the campus has seen an increase in the number of students listed on the 'A" Honor Roll and who carry out their school mantra as they Launch to Destination Learning.

Dr. Barbara Jordan ES

Uniform Donation

Students at Dr. Barbara Jordan ES received a new uniform shirt from the Buddhist Tzu Chi Foundation, U. S. A. Tzu Chi is an international humanitarian organization whose mission is to relieve the suffering of those in need, and create a better world for all.

Principal, Lucy Hopkins said, “The Tzu Chi Foundation’s generosity will influence our scholars to give back to the community".
