Notes from the Administrators:


The last day of school before winter break, Dec. 19, also marks the end of first semester.  The teachers will report back to work on Jan. 6 to prepare student report cards and IEP goal updates.  Students will return to school on Tuesday, Jan. 7, 2020 and they will be bringing home their report card information Jan. 9. Please let your child’s teacher know if you have any questions once you receive this important paperwork.



On behalf of the entire Mike Clemens Center team, we wish your family a wonderful winter break.  Whether you stay in the area, or travel far, may you have a safe, relaxing and enjoyable time with family and friends.
