College, Career & Military Information - April 2021

Dear Buff Family-

Hello Buff Families-

It is hard to believe we are in the last 9 weeks of this school year already! As we get closer to the last day of school, please continue to encourage your students to work hard and finish the year strong. We hope that you and your student will continue to use TXConnect to monitors grades and attendance. Please have your student check at his/her Edgenuity profile to check for any credit and/or grade recovery courses that need to be completed. More info regarding Summer School will be available soon. Stay tuned to our social media pages, the Clemens website, and emails from the campus about how to sign up if needed. Talk with your student’s teachers if you need more info regarding your student’s progress in his/her classes. Just a reminder….students are required to have 6 credits to be classified as a Sophomore, 13 credits to be classified as a Junior and 19 credits to be classified as a Senior.

April is the Month of the Military Child. As a community with strong military ties, we recognize the sacrifices our families and students have made to serve. We have a Military Student Transition Consultant on campus that is available to help answer questions that either students or parents may have. Her name is Tina Barber and you can reach her at

As seniors receive acceptance letters from colleges or universities and/or scholarship awards, we ask that they submit them to their alpha counselors. Additionally, please make sure your senior has submitted this info which is required for him/her to participate in Decision Day on May 3. The deadline to submit and register is April 23. Additionally, we hope that your senior will participate in the Elephant Walk on May 21. The deadline to register is April 16. We are excited that we are able to have these events this year and look forward to celebrating with our students!

We hope that you are staying safe and healthy. We appreciate your continued support. Please reach out if you need assistance.

APRIL IS MONTH OF THE MILITARY CHILD posted this article that sums it up nicely.

‘Each year, April is set aside as a military child appreciation month, officially known as the Month of the Military Child. With its start in the mid-1980s, the Pentagon and other military support organizations and agencies use the month to recognize military kids for their sacrifice and bravery on the homefront.

The term "military brat" is a badge of pride worn by generations of kids who traveled the world with their parents, moving into adulthood with the knowledge that they have the strength to handle anything. Military children deal with separations, deployments, frequent moves and even their parents' injuries as part of the life they were born into or entered with their families.

Because purple is a color used to represent all military services, the theme "Purple Up" is used over the course of the month. Their strength and resiliency is inspirational. Especially this year, as many of them are facing new learning from home adventures, extended separations from a parent and delayed PCSes.’

Please help us in celebrating our Military Connected students at Clemens. If you have a picture of your Military Connected student that you would like to share with us, please email it to me at

Senior Elephant Walk

Our Senior Elephant Walk is scheduled for May 21, 2021. Elephant Walk takes Seniors back to their elementary schools as kind of a nostalgic trip to remind them where they've been and how far they have come. Teachers, students, and staff typically form lines on either side of the senior line to cheer them on and congratulate them as they again walk the halls they once walked in their more formative years.

Using your senior's SCUC login credentials, please complete the Google Form if you would like your senior to participate in this activity.

Forms must be completed no later than April 9, 2021. If your senior did not attend an elementary school in SCUC, then they can attend any of the schools on the list. Changes will not be made after April 16, 2021.

If you have any questions, please contact Stacy McWilliams at
