Dress Code Reminder

Parents, please remember as the weather continues to warm up that students must always be in dress code at school. Jeans and shorts must be school appropriate and no shirts are allowed that show bare midriff.

"See-through, bare midriff, halter type, shoulder bearing, or spaghetti strap blouses or any revealing or low cut clothing is not permitted. Pants and other articles of clothing that are torn, ragged, frayed, or pants with holes must be below fingertip length."

To get more information about our dress code, please see the student handbook here.

Destination Imagination Fundraiser

Clark is so proud of the 8th grade Destination Imagination team composed of Saraya Patel, Abigail Dutra and Max Hodes. These students have independently prepared and won first place at local and state competitions. Now they are headed to Internationals in Missouri at the end of May. They have designed the following fundraising efforts to help off-set the cost of travel, lodging, and food while at the competition. Please consider helping our Clark students as they strive for excellence! The T-shirt order deadline is 4/29.

Order a T-shirt here.
