8th Grade Social

Reminder to parents:  The Fall 2018 8th Grade Social is Friday, November 2nd, 6:30-8:00pm, Gymnasium.

This event is a terrific opportunity for kids to hang out with their classmates in a relaxed, familiar environment.  In this age of social media and smart phones, school events like this can be a great way for kids to socialize in person. The PTO will provide plenty of snacks, a DJ spinning tunes, fun games, and a movie. Encourage your 8th grader to attend with their friends and have a fun time.

Permission slips will be provided to students to be submitted at the door.  Please contact Emy Goldsmith (emy.goldsmith@gmailcom) if you are able to volunteer.  Thanks!

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.
