Jason's Deli Fundraising Night: Wednesday, February 9 from 5PM to 9PM

Dine with us again, this time at Jason's Deli on University Ave in Clive. A portion of all sales (15%!) during this time frame will be given right back to our school! It's a no brainer...really, who doesn't love their free ice cream after your meal?!? Mention CLA or use the QR code on the flyer for online orders to ensure our school gets credit. Dining fundraiser nights are one of the PTO's biggest money-raisers this year as we did not have our annual Fun Run fundraiser.

Friendship Classroom Parties: Friday, February 11th

February is the month to celebrate love, friendship and camaraderie! To do so, classrooms will each have their own friendship party, with craft, game and snack. (Sadly, we still cannot welcome parent volunteers into the building.) Students are invited to bring Valentine cards to school to share with their classmates on the party day. The PTO is collecting Valentine cards for students in need as well as other party supply donations. To donate a supply, sign up here: The PTO greatly appreciates your support in making these fun activities possible for all students! All donations can be left in the front office, no later than Wednesday, February 9.

Playground Committee Update

The CLA playground committee had its first meeting late last month. Phase One of our playground enhancements will take place this summer and will be our blacktop/cement areas. This will be done in conjunction with the building construction addition. (As a reminder, our main playground remodel will be in summer of 2024.) This committee will meet again on February 17. If you have any ideas/suggestions/grant leads/etc to share, please email We'd love to hear from you!

Thank You Clive Fareway!
