Parent/Guardian Forum: Conversation with Principal Anna Monaco

Clarke's Cafeteria

All Clarke parents and guardians are invited to an evening of conversation with Principal Anna Monaco, sponsored by the Clarke PTO. This event is your opportunity to ask questions and offer suggestions about any aspects of life at Clarke (except class-specific or child-specific questions, which should be addressed separately with your child’s teachers or counselor). Basic questions about logistics and resources are welcome, but so are more in-depth ones about school culture; social-emotional learning and support; technology; homework; the school schedule; teaching and learning; school safety; building effective parent-school partnerships; and more.

The Clarke PTO hosts forums on a variety of topics throughout the year. Stay informed about all of our upcoming forums through the PTO's weekly emails or by visiting clarkepto.org.
