Notes from the Principal:

Our MAP testing is underway and are scheduled to continue until May 13, with make-up sessions available until May 22.  Please help us by avoiding appointments during this testing window when possible.

We are currently making plans for our Extended School Year (ESY) for two weeks in June and two weeks in July.  We have a large portion of our current students who will be attending. Please let me know ASAP if you are needing transportation to/from a location other than your home address.  We want to make sure the correct transportation arrangements are made. I also want to remind you that breakfast and lunch are not served during ESY, so please make sure your child has breakfast before they leave the house each morning.

Our Fine Arts Night is fast approaching!  Please return the form to let us know if you will be attending.  We hope you can join us for this family-friendly event!

Clemens Center Spotlight - Technology

Ms. Grau teaches students technology skills they will need for their future. Her classes focus on communication, collaboration, creativity, and critical thinking. Throughout the school year students practice keyboarding, learn about proper digital citizenship and being safe online, learn how to use the toolbars in Google apps such as docs and slides, and coding. We recently did some exploring using the VR glasses.

MCC Fine Arts Night

The Mike Clemens Center will be hosting a Fine Arts Night starting at 6 pm, May 13. The students and staff are thrilled to provide the opportunity to show the skills they have learned this year! - Please return the form at the end of this newsletter if you plan to attend!
