Happy New Year Patriot families!


I hope this holiday season was filled with many joyous memories and that your family was able to rest and recharge for the year ahead. I was able to spend time with family and friends that I don't often see and was reminded about how important those times can be. Although December went by quite fast, I did find a few moments to reflect on the past year and this quote came to mind:

"We do not learn from experience...we learn from reflecting on experience." John Dewey.


Wishing you and yours a wonderful New Year and the best of luck on all those New Years Resolutions.


Please see below for upcoming events and information.

Registration 2019-2020


If your student is currently registered at one of Rawlinson's regular feeder elementary schools or at Rawlinson, the students will register and select courses through on-line registration at school. Parents will receive notice of registration dates as we lead students through the process. Parents will also receive notice of courses students self-select for the following school year, whether at Rawlinson or at Clark.


Parents and students will be allowed to make changes until the end of the current school year.

Please look for information from the counseling department about course options. Counselors encourage family decision making, and are happy to answer any questions families may have about course selection options. We will send info home via Remind, parent newsletters, paperwork, Google classroom, and maybe even the school marqee.
