Clifford School Halloween Costume Guidelines!
Students may bring Halloween costumes to school on Thursday, October 31, 2019. Students can change into costumes at lunch for students who choose to dress up. All costumes must adhere to the following conditions:
Clifford Dress Code – no bare midriffs or “revealing” clothing, short-shorts, all clothes should completely cover undergarments, appropriate shoes must be worn, etc.
You must be able to sit, walk, breathe, see and hear!
Costumes cannot promote the use of drugs, alcohol or weapons of any kind. No fake blood or gore.
No pretend “prop” weapons such as water pistols, knives or swords.
Costumes may not be offensive or inappropriate in any way.
Any costume that will disrupt the routine of the day or class, including PE, will not be allowed.
The final decision on all costumes will be made by the administration.
Please remember that this is still a full school day. Students are expected to fully participate in each class throughout the day. We are looking forward to everyone following the guidelines, coming up with creative costumes, and having fun!

School Site Council - Parents Needed
The Clifford School Site Council (SSC) discusses various aspects of our school programs, gives input to planning and votes on the school plan and categorical budgets. Council meetings last one hour and are generally held once a month from September to May. The SSC is an interesting and rewarding way for you to participate in the education of your child(ren). No prior experience is necessary and we welcome anyone who has an interest in learning more about the school and being part of decision making at Clifford. If you wish to be considered as a member of the School Site Council please email Jude Noyes at Jnoyes@rcsdk8.net at Clifford School. We hope to see a lot of parents at our meetings!

CHILD(REN'S) NAME :
Project Cornerstone! Stand Tall Molly Lou Melon...
In October we begin Project Cornerstone. This is our 3rd year having this wonderful program at Clifford. From the PTO website, “Project Cornerstone’s Asset Building Champions (ABCs) are caring adults who read books and lead discussions with students in class. Through select stories, we will help build a school-wide language for handling social-emotional and relationship issues and empower students to make good choices. What’s more, ABC readers will connect with students and make a difference in their lives all year long. You can visit their website www.projectcornerstone.org. We are looking for caring parents and adult volunteers who want to engage with students once a month in class (you don’t have to read every month! Any amount of time that you can contribute will be much appreciated For more information or to sign up, please contact Shabnam Moon at shabnam.moon.com.
Stand Tall Molly Lou Melon...
Molly Lou is a unique little girl with big confidence, bolstered by the support of her grandmother. This story illustrates how the support of a caring and loving adult can, along with the recognition of your own personal powers and self-talk, can make one strong and brave to stand up to bullies... and even create change in one's own world.
