Sixth Grade Clearview Math Assessment

Attention 6th Grade Parents: The Clearview Math Assessment for 6th graders that has traditionally been administered in May will not be administered to 6th graders this year. The Clearview administrative team continues to believe that the ongoing health emergency has had a far reaching effect on students, teachers, continuous learning, and families during this academic year, and believes that the information that is historically gained from the Clearview Math Assessment results can be gained from reviewing other student assessments that are already scheduled and administered within our elementary district.

Picture Day Snaps at Home - Time is Running Out to Submit Your Picture

Lifetouch is offering an updated version of Snaps @ Home, a feature on their app that lets parents upload their own picture as a school picture. They add the school photo background in the app, and then can send the digital picture to to be used in the yearbook. Families will have to order a photo package. The packages start at $4.99, and we are asking that our families use the blue background to keep the photos uniform. Please email with questions.

If your student missed having his/her picture made and you would like them in the yearbook, please participate before the deadline.
