Educating Learners Today...Building Leaders Tomorrow
Our Clear Stream parents lined the fence to see the festivities and cheer their children on! It was wonderful to see the students outside and enjoying themselves again.
Board of Education Appreciation Night
Hooray For Valleywood
The screen above the Shaw Avenue auditorium read “Valleywood” as students set the stage for a big thanks to the board. Students put on a short sketch, and second and fourth grade chorus singers performed under the direction of Stephanie Cooke. A new song, “Hooray for Valleywood,” written by Clear Stream Principal John Singleton, celebrated the unique qualities of the students’ hometown. Student Emily Arias then took center stage for a dazzling dance.
The event culminated in the premiere of “Valleywood the Movie,” in which Clear Stream students took on the roles of the district’s board members and acted out a business meeting. After the showing, each board member stood on the stage with their actor counterparts to share their mutual thanks.
National School Psychology Week 2022
This year's theme, "Together We Shine" is derived from how we see hope after several challenging years. We have all faced difficulties created by the pandemic, social injustice and inequity, economic stress, and challenges to mental and physical health. For some, it has been a time of real darkness, and finding light is critical to building resilience and hope.
Though each of us has our own inner light-the strengths and attributes that shape our capabilities and dreams when we bring together our ideas and actions to uplift each other-we shine even brighter together, both as individuals and as a community. Feelings of isolation and disconnection have been challenging these past 2 years. Reconnecting with others and reestablishing the sense of being valued parts of a greater whole empowers students and adults to find purpose and possibility.
Our Learning Lab is open and ready for business. Mr. Carr taught our students how to create and design a Lego Propellor. Engineers use a process called backward design. They develop a sketch of what the final product is and then they create it. Our future engineers are definitely ready for take off!
American Education Week
American Education Week will be celebrated during the week of November 15-17. On this day, schools across the nation invite parents into the classroom to experience what the day is like for their child.
According to experts, parents need to take an active and assertive role in their children's education on a daily basis for optimal success at school. Ongoing research shows that parental involvement in schools improves student achievement, reduces absenteeism, and restores confidence among parents in their children's education. Parental involvement means reading to your children, checking homework every night, limiting television viewing or screen time on school nights, developing a relationship with your child's teacher, and simply asking children about their school day. Whatever the level of involvement, it is important to be consistent in order to make a difference in your children's lives.Parental response to this event has always been very positive. . We will be using a similar format as in previous years.
The teachers will be sending home RSVP permission slips. All permission slips must be returned to your child’s teacher by November 10, 2022 for entry into the building. Space is limited so only one parent per child will be permitted in the classroom. For security reasons, only parents who have returned this sheet will be allowed to enter the building. All visitors will be required to sign in at the main lobby and will be admitted based on the scheduled time of visits.
Please do not bring younger children to this visit. They will not be permitted into the classrooms. Also, no photos or video taping will be permitted.This is a wonderful opportunity for you to observe your child’s classroom experience. I look forward to seeing you during the week of November 15th for a visit to your child’s class.
Lee Denim Day
Lee National Denim Day is a one-day fund-raising event, that’s annually observed on the first Friday in October- this year, 2022, October 7th. This event was started in 1996 to contribute and support breast cancer research and wellness program.
Lee National Denim Day started when several Lee Jeans employees realized that they were affected by breast cancer in one form or another. During the conversation they came with an idea to start some kind of event, that could raise money to help all women suffering from breast cancer. Thus the event was shaped.
Clear Stream Teachers Celebrated the Day by wearing "Pink and Jeans" to spread Awareness.
