It's going to be a fantastic new year for the students, staff and parents at E. P. Clarke Elementary
Our focus will be high levels of learning for all students. Together, with our parents as partners, the staff and I are committed to working collaboratively to help our students academically, socially, and emotionally. The generous support of our Parent-Teacher Organization and St. Joseph Public Schools Foundation will ensure students have access to 21st century learning tools and robust learning experiences all year long.
We look forward to partnering with you in your child's education. Four great ways you can support your child's learning this year:
Designated learning time every night. Establishing clear home expectations and routines for homework, nightly reading, and self-directed learning activities helps to ensure a terrific school year. With busy fall sports schedules this can be difficult, but starting the year out right will make learning a priority all year long.
Prioritize family time. Set aside time each week for family fun that's focused on relationship building, communication and well being. Happy and healthy learners are easier to grow.
Attend PTO meetings and school events. These special networking opportunities provide support for you as parents.
Get Connected - stay informed! School news and information is published to parents through itsLearning and our school blog. Important reminders and schedule changes are sent via School Messenger, Facebook and /or Twitter. Please be sure your email address on file with the school is correct. News and announcements from the school office and your child's teacher can come right to your inbox.
Thank you for all you do at home and at school. Together we make a huge difference for our students!
