Clinton Elementary School

The Bear Facts!

January 8, 2021

Dear Clinton Families,

Happy New Year! We hope that this newsletter finds you and your family well. We are busy preparing for the return to school - Phase 3 of the SOMSD Reopening Plan. In order to prepare, Wednesday, January 13th will be asynchronous - no live instruction that day. Teachers will be returning to the building this day and will use this time to prepare their rooms. Please see our Busy Bears Bulletin featuring Nurse Harrigan with tips for our hybrid return.

Please stay well.

Until we are together in person again, we remain #Clintonstrong2020!

Fondly, Jennifer Connors, Principal & Zoila Correa, Assistant Principal

We now have Dragon Masters, I Survived e-books in addition to audiobooks, Amulet and Raina Telmegeier graphic novels, One and Only Ivan, Nate the Great, Geronimo Stilton and more. I also continued to diversify our collection with exciting new titles that tackle social issues. Remember that you can access them through Canvas, from or the MackinVIA app.
