Clinton Cougar Newsletter
Dear Clinton Families,
I hope you had a wonderful Winter Break! We are so excited to see the kids, and get back to learning new things with them. We see a lot of growth in our students between now and the end of the school year, so it's an exciting time to watch kids progress.
We continue to have a high number of absences, and students just don't learn as much when they are not in school. If your child is ill, then please keep them home, but if they are healthy, then regular attendance needs to be a priority. To encourage regular attendance when kids are not sick, we are going to offer an extra fieldtrip to the grade level with the highest average attendance rate during 3rd term. Thank you for helping to get your healthy child to school everyday.
Our librarian, Mrs. Kirkman, is sponsoring a reading challenge for the month of January. Watch for a flier coming home with details, or see them below.
We have quite a few schedule changes this month, from early-out days, to holidays, to parent-teacher conferences. I have noted them in the calendar below, and you will want to put them on your calendar too.

Waterford for Pre-Kindergarten
If you have a child that will be entering Kindergarten this year or if you have a 4-year old who will be entering kindergarten in 2023, we would like to invite you to participate in Waterford Upstart. Waterford Upstart provides four-year-old children access to the highest form of academic support in their early education at no cost to participants: The average Waterford Upstart graduate enters kindergarten reading at nearly a first-grade level and maintains their gains for years to come.
