Student Drop Off

Parents should only drop their children in the lane closest to the curb—the right-hand lane. For safety purposes they SHOULD NOT drop them off in the left lane or on the street. We want to keep them all safe and kids crossing in front of moving vehicles in the parking lot is NOT safe.

Principals' Corner

Parents, we have just completed the second marking period of the year and grades will be posted in the Home Access Center next week. As we move forward, please remind your child(ren) to attend tutorials if they need extra help from teachers. Tutoring takes place each day before school at 7:55am and immediately after school which ends at 4:05pm. Our teachers also use Cougar Den time to pull students in for extra help or for extension activities. We hope this is helpful information as you review grades and discuss the learning that’s taking place with your children.

Academic Pentathlon Interest Meeting

Attention 7th and 8th graders:

Are you interested in matching your intellect with students from other schools? Are you interested in a theme-based, five-event competition?

The Academic Pentathlon interest meeting will be held on November 13th in room 708. There will be a meeting before school at 7:55am, and a meeting after school at 3:40pm. Snacks will be provided.

Are You Lost?

I can’t promise you will find yourself in our Lost & Found but you will find lots of lunchboxes, water bottles, coats, jackets, glasses and books. Feel free to come to the front office to take a look. Questions? Call or e-mail Mrs. Taylor at 469.633.4600 or

Cougar PRIDE System

Clark's positive behavior incentive system, or PRIDE, is an integral part of our daily routines. New this year, we are rewarding students using Class Dojo! Students will receive points when they exhibit our PRIDE expectations: Preparedness, Respect, Integrity, Dedication and Engagement. Points can be used to purchase items in our PRIDE store (coming in November). It is such fun rewarding our outstanding students!
