Hello Kindergarten Families!

Summer is quickly winding down and it is time for the final Kindergarten play date which will be held on Saturday, August 17th from 9 am -11 am on the Clinton School playground. This will be the last play date before school year begins. If you were unable to a join us in July, this is a great opportunity for your child to meet some new Clinton friends. For those of you who attended in July, feel free to join us again. We will also have Clinton School gear on sale to start displaying your Clinton School pride. Please be aware that the school building will be closed and we will not have access to the bathrooms or water fountains, so feel free to bring your own water bottles.

See you then!

Mourning for Clinton Family

Posted August 9th, 2013 by PTA

It is with tremendous sadness that we announce that one of our Clinton families was involved in the tragic and fatal accident on Essex Street Tuesday night. Tamir Harry, who was killed instantly, and Tahsir Harry, who is in serious condition at University Hospital, are the older brothers of incoming SOMS 6th grader and Clinton 5th grader. We are so deeply heartbroken for our Clinton family and neighbors.

On August 14th, counselors (including Clinton School’s Lindy Rollo) will be available for Clinton, SOMS, and CHS students and parents in need of support. Counselors will also open a discussion on how we can provide support to the victims’ families. The event will be held at the Columbia High School cafeteria on Wednesday from 5:00 – 6:30 pm.

HK Community Fund is organizing a campaign to help the families of the victims. Please take a moment to read more at http://us4.campaign-archive2.com/?u=90aec300758db5dc3a64ad902&id=6dbdd50797, and please contribute if you can.
