Help With Clinton School Garden Today/Wed August 29th

Posted August 29th, 2012 by PTA

Wednesday, August 29 is D-Day! Dirt day, that is. We’re taking delivery of some soil and need volunteers who can help shovel it into our raised beds. We’ll be working from 9 a.m. to noon, and Thursday, August 30 is our rain date, same time, same place.

Bring yourself, your kids, and shovels and a wheelbarrow if you have one. We’ll be toward the back of the school near the portables and the parking lot, and we’ll have a few materials on hand for young artists who would like to help make signs for the garden.

RSVP by email to Anne Harding or please call her at 973-763-3893 if you have any questions.

Clinton School 2012-13 Calendar/Back to School Events

Posted August 28th, 2012 by PTA

Hi All!

We hope you are enjoying the last couple weeks of summer! We are looking forward to seeing everyone on the first day of school, Thursday, September 6th at our PTA Back to School Gathering in the cafeteria at 8:05 am, right after drop-off. Bring your coffee and stop by to see old friends and make new ones. You can also join the Clinton PTA that morning, sign up for Class Parent duties, and buy Clinton t-shirts and car magnets.

Please walk around the school (outside) and enter directly through the cafeteria doors near the portables or near the parking lot. We want to keep the hallways quiet and orderly so teachers can get their students settled and comfortable right away.

2012-13 CALENDAR
Also, please visit the calendar page on our website to print out or download the Clinton PTA calendar for the entire year. This calendar lists all PTA events and will allow you to plan in advance. On the same page you will find a link to the South Orange Maplewood School District calendar which will provide dates of school closings, vacations, etc.

If you ordered a school supply kit, you can pick it up on Tuesday, September 4th between 4pm and 6:30pm in the Clinton School cafeteria. Please enter through the cafeteria doors as the front entry ways will not be open. If you have questions about the kits, contact Leah Gomberg.
If you can’t make it on the 4th, the kit will be brought to your child’s classroom on the first day of school.

Join us for our Annual Ice Cream Social on Thursday, September 13th at 6:00pm. This is a wonderful way to start off the year and teachers will be on hand to scoop the ice cream. Don’t miss it!

We look forward to a wonderful year!
