Hope you are all enjoying the final weeks of summer. We have been busy preparing and planning for an amazing school year.

School starts in just 3 weeks. Some people have been asking about teacher assignments. Assignments are generally sent out a week before school starts; keep an eye on your mailbox.

Still need school supplies? Check out the list to the right for all supply lists.

Remember to stop by the cafeteria for the PTA Coffee immediately after drop-off on 9/7. Here you can sign up for PTA membership and volunteer opportunities.

Keep checking the website for more updates as we draw closer to the 1st day of school. Are you a facebooker? So are we, “like” us at Clinton Elementary.
