Clinton Cougar Newsletter

January 2023

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.

Friday School Spirit Day!

Our classes are having a school spirit competition each Friday to see who can show the most school spirit. Students should wear a school shirt, blue shirt, or grey shirt in order to be counted towards the class total for the most amazing school spirit. The winning class gets to display the spirit wreath for the following week.

Fieldtrip Chaperones and Volunteers

If you are interested in being a volunteer or fieldtrip chaperone, then you need to complete a Davis School District background check. These can take some time to get an appointment, and have completed, so earlier is better. There is a one time cost of $28. Please let Mrs. Lundell know if you need help with the fee.

You must call for an appointment with the Davis Human Resource Department for a background check. 801-402-5722

First Floor

45 East State Street

Farmington, Utah 84025-0588

Bring valid ID

Once a volunteer has successfully completed the background check, it is valid indefinitely, according to current state law. The background check will allow you to volunteer for any of your children for as long as they are in the Davis School District.

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.
