Cougar Families,

I hope you have enjoyed a nice weekend!  The weather is looking like we are headed in the right direction and will finally have warmer weather this week!  As the weather warms, please remember to keep dogs off the peaceful playground during school entry and dismissal. Also, it is great to see some of our scholars riding bikes or boards, but please remind them to walk with them once they get to the peaceful playground to avoid any accidents.  Speaking of arrival and dismissal, we need to keep our community safe, do not pass cars or student crossing guards.     

Here are a few reminders.

Clissold Online Store:  Please check out our new online spirit wear opportunity.   Final day to order without paying a shipping charge is Monday!   


The free shipping will be from April 13th to the 30th.  Otherwise, there will be a $7.00 flat rate charge on all orders.  There are two example items near the main entrance to check out the quality of a t-shirt and sweatshirt.


Ridge Run:  Join our CLISSOLD2018 Team today! Last day to guarantee a shirt is May 3rd!!

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

Attendance: Clissold needs everyone’s daily support to get our school attendance rate back to 96%!! Currently, we are under 95% and could jeopardize our opportunity to maximize scholar’s learning time and our points toward the school report card(SQRP).  Please have our scholars here on time daily and know understand that early dismissals count negatively against our attendance rate.  We are running weekly attendance incentives and pizza for homerooms that have 10 perfect attendance days.

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.

Here are a couple helpful videos on the parent portal:
