Can You Help with the Teacher Appreciation Luncheon?

Posted April 30th, 2013 by PTA

On Wednesday, May 8th at 2:40 pm, during Teacher Appreciation Week (May 6-10), the PTA will host our annual Teacher Appreciation Luncheon in the Clinton School Library. Would you be willing to help by preparing a dish or donating money for supplies?

If you can bring a dish, please contact Patty O’Connell or Janet Trzaska and let us know what you will be bringing. All kinds of dishes are welcome, from appetizers to desserts to beverages. Monetary donations can be sent to school in care of the PTA. Please mark “for teacher luncheon.”

When you reply, please be sure to give us your email address so we can contact you about delivery instructions for that day. Also, let us know if you are free to volunteer to help set up and clean up the lunch that day (from approximately 1:30 until 4:30). Thanks in advance for your help!

Important Street Parking Changes

Posted April 26th, 2013 by PTA

Please note that the parking regulations along the front of Clinton School have recently changed. Berskshire Road and Burroughs Way, along the front lawn, are now “No Parking Any Time”. Please find alternate street parking, even if you are running into school for a few minutes.

Please pay close attention to parking regulations to avoid getting ticketed.
