Clarkston Community Schools has begun a Facilities Assessment process. In this process, all buildings and sites are being evaluated, providing both a snapshot in time and a look forward to the district's current and anticipated needs. This is where we need your input. A brief survey has been developed to gather your opinions, perceptions and thoughts regarding district facilities and infrastructure.
Please click on link below to take this quick survey - your input is extremely valuable in this process. Hard copies of the survey are also available at the CCS Administration Building, 6389 Clarkston Road. Thank you!
DRAWING CONTEST FOR CHS SAAD CLUB
The Clarkston High School SADD Club, (Students Against Destructive Decisions), would like your help again this year, with our Strive for a Safer Drive Grant Project. We are asking students to draw a picture about the hazards of winter driving. Our goal is to help new and experienced drivers be safe on winter roads. Too many people get hurt or die in car crashes due to hazardous winter driving.
This year we are holding a contest for drawings that depict hazardous winter driving. We would appreciate your help in encouraging your child to participate in this contest. The drawings should be sent to: Clarkston High School; care of SADD Club/Mrs. Carter. Please make sure that your child’s name, grade and school are listed on the back of their drawing. Drawings that are selected for use in the project, have a chance of winning a $25.00 gift card to “Pump It Up”, a $15.00 MJR Theater gift card, or a $5.00 gift card to McDonalds, along with other prizes.
We would appreciate your help by encouraging your child to participate in the contest.
*Children Kdg through 5th grade are eligible to participate in this contest. Drawings must be submitted by Friday January 15 to CHS SADD Club.*
If you have any questions about the contest or the S4SD Distracted Driving Grant Project, please contact Mrs. Carter at (248) 623-4025 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for your help,
CHS SADD Club
Thanks to the CE families for supporting our book fair. It was our best fair EVER. The total sales were $9314. We took all of our profit in Scholastic Dollars, which earned us a total of $5123 to spend on books for our Media Center. The children are going to be so thrilled with all of our new materials.
An extra special thanks to all who volunteered or purchased a book - we could not make the Book Fair a success without you!
