Can You Help the Clinton Garden Grow?

Posted May 17th, 2013 by PTA

Help Our Garden Grow!

On Saturday morning, starting at 9 am, we’ll be filling up two brand-new beds with soil for our kindergarten gardeners. We’re hoping to get the job done before the Renaissance Fair starts at 11 am, so if you’re up for a little dirt moving grab a shovel and come join us! Wheelbarrows welcome. Just email Anne Harding or call at 973-763-3893 if you have any questions. Thank you!

Memorial Day Float — Volunteers Needed

Posted May 15th, 2013 by PTA

Help Build the Clinton Float!

Clinton is building a float for the Memorial Day Parade! Our theme this year is “Sailing into the Future.”

Our float-building will take place at Erica and Mike Dussman’s house, 16 Highland Avenue, on Saturday, May 25, 10:00-3:00 PM. If we don’t finish the float Saturday, we will also work Sunday, May 26, from 10:00 AM until done. There will be tasks for both children and adults, but parents must accompany their children the entire time they are working. Come for an hour or come for a day. All are welcome! Please RSVP so we have an idea of how many to expect. Email Jackie Lahey or call 973-313-9757.

The Clinton Float Needs Your Blue Bags!

Our wonderful float is created from re-used and recycled materials. We need BLUE PLASTIC BAGS. Bags from The New York Times are perfect, but all blue bags are welcome! You can drop them off inside the school entrance or at the Maplewood Main Library near the main desk. Clinton students: Collect them from your neighbors!

March with the Clinton Float!

Please plan to march in the parade, Monday, May 27. We will assemble at the Columbia High School Student Parking Lot at 8:15 AM. Every child must be accompanied by an adult. One adult can take responsibility for more than one child, but children may NOT be dropped off alone at the point of assembly.

Every child is encouraged to march a Clinton School shirt, or a red shirt. Go Clinton!

Send in your Box Tops!

Clinton PTA is asking that you send in your boxtops this Wednesday, February 6th, Thursday, February 7th & Friday, February 8th.

Please put your teacher’s name on a bag of boxtops or sheets of boxtops you have collected and turn them in to your teacher or the boxtop collection bin in the front hall. We will be counting them by class, and will announce what class has collected the most. I will be collecting the boxtops at the end of the day on Friday.

Please Help with Outdoor Beautification Saturday, October 20

Posted October 19th, 2012 by PTA

Dear Clinton families:

This Saturday, October 20th, is our scheduled fall Outdoor Beautification day. We will be at Clinton School weeding, sprucing-up, and spring bulb-planting, and would love as many hands as possible. We’ll get started at 9am, and appreciate any time you can give. If you have a wheelbarrow, please bring it…and if you happen to have any leftover bulbs from your own garden, Clinton would appreciate those, too! For more information, please e-mail Keli Tianga at
