Clara Love Family Newsletter
November 3, 2021
Calling all veterans! We are excited to host a ceremonial parade and celebration for Veterans Day on Thursday, November 11, at 8:00 am here at Clara Love. If your family (or friends or neighbors) includes a veteran, we would love to honor them at our celebration. Veterans are asked to arrive at 7:40 am on 11/11 to get lined up for the parade. The veteran will parade through our Clara Love halls with their Lil’ Texan(s) as information is shared about their service. At the conclusion of the parade, veterans are invited to a small reception. The event is expected to end by 9:00 am.
To have your veteran participate, please complete the Google Form found here by 11/5. If your veteran is unable to attend in-person, we ask that you still complete the form so we can recognize them on a bulletin board. We thank all veterans for their service!

PLEASE HELP US SHOW HOW THANKFUL WE ARE FOR OUR TEACHERS & STAFF BY STOCKING OUR LOUNGE WITH DRINKS & SNACKS. WE WOULD ALSO LIKE TO ASK FOR $5.00 GIFTCARDS FOR SONIC OR STARBUCKS TO GIVE AWAY AS PRIZES THROUGH OUT THE UPCOMING MONTHS. PLEASE DELIVER ITEMS TO THE SCHOOL FRONT OFFICE THE WEEK OF NOVEMBER 8TH - 12TH. THANK YOU!!

We’re continuing to see significant progress in the decrease of COVID cases in Northwest ISD and our campus! In light of this positive news, we’d like to remind you of the importance of regular attendance as we experience a more normal school year.
Being at school is the best environment for a child to keep pace with the academic schedule and ensure learning takes place. All students should achieve academic standards at or above the current grade level by the end of the school year, and regular attendance is the best way to accomplish that goal.
If your child is sick, please keep him or her at home! But healthy students should be at school. If your child has COVID, please be aware a doctor’s note is needed for any absences beyond 10 calendar days. For any students in this category, please keep our school updated so we can provide your child with appropriate academic materials in their absence.
