Scholastic Book Fair Coming Soon!

Our fall Scholastic Book Fair will be Nov. 15-19, 2021! Mark your calendars! More information to come, but check out the book fair flyer to see the awesome books we will have for sale!

Since this year's book fair will only be open to student shoppers, we encourage families to use theScholastic eWallet option. eWallet allows families to set up a spending balance for students that is easy to set up and secure for checkout. This way, families don't have to worry about money being lost between school and home!

Check out this video for more information about eWallet.

Visit our Scholastic Book Fair website to get your eWallet set up now!

Student Artwork Portfolios >

Click the link above to connect with your students' artwork portfolio! Parents can search by grade level and name to find their student. If you are unable to find your student, it is likely that your student has yet to submit artwork through the portal.

*Please note that currently there are only artworks for grades 3-6 available to view online as we are still trying to introduce and implement it to the younger grades. — Mrs. Leeper

Thank You to our Fall Conference Meal Donors!

Thanks to your donations of food, drinks, paper products, and cash, the Clive PTO was able to treat our teachers to meals on both evenings of fall parent-teacher conferences!
