Cougar Communication 4-8-18

Cougar Families,

I hope everyone is enjoying this first week back from Spring Break!  I am certain we all wish the weather was a bit more cooperative. However, we can still indulge in some brisk outdoor fun! Please dress our scholars warm we will try to go out for recess whenever we can. 

Father Daughter Dance:  Do not miss out!! Forms and picture submissions are due on Monday!! 

LSC Election Judge: Clissold is in need of an LSC Election Judge.  Those individuals interested must complete an application as soon as possible. Applications are located in the main office, please see Ms. Walker.  Candidates running for the LSC cannot apply to be a judge at a school they are on a ballot for.  

Creative Computing:  Thank you PcW!  We had a wonderful first of seven sessions for our 4th graders!  Our scholars began a coding program!  

April 18th:  Report Card Pick Up, New Kindergarten Registration, PTA and LSC Elections

Times for Report Card Pick Up: 11:00-3:00, 3:00-3:45 (Staff Lunch) and 3:45-6:00 PM

Clissold Online Store:  Please check out our new online spirit wear opportunity.   


The free shipping will be from April 13th to the 30th.  Otherwise, there will be a $7.00 flat rate charge on all orders.

Ridge Run:  Mark your calendars for Memorial Day run and festivities. CK took the trophy from us last year and we will need everyone's support to regain our community dominance! Our team/ school code will be CLISSOLD2018.  Here is the link to begin registering:  Ridge Run

FoodWise Newsletter: Attached is the  Parent University opportunity on healthy food.

Parent Portal:  If you haven't registered or have an account, it would be a great idea to open this or get back up to speed as a great way to monitor your child(s) grades and attendance.

Attendance:  We have fallen under 95% attendance on the year and are missing our mark of 97% as a yearly goal.  Please make sure our scholars on on-time and present daily.  Our attendance rate is vital to our ability to maximize points for our school report card.  More importantly, it is essential for our ability to best meet our scholar's educational success.   

We are a Montessori and IB Middle Years educational community who believes in the gift of every child to inspire and empower the future of our humanity.
