It's Book Fair Time!! This year it will look a bit different, but it may actually be better!! Now you can shop from the comfort of your own home and have the books delivered directly to your home!! If you want to purchase books for gifts, your kids will never know! Any purchase, big or small, helps support the school library. The Elementary Book Fair starts next week, Oct. 26th and runs through Nov. 8th. The website won't be live until then. Here is the link. https://www.scholastic.com/bf/clarkeelementaryschool

Familias con Estudiantes Virtuales, Nosotros pediremos que todos los estudiantes K-12 tomen el examen de diagnóstico llamado i-Ready antes del 6 de octubre (10/16). En la escuela primaria ya empezaron el examen y en la secundaria el examen será la semana del 5 de octubre. Nosotros hemos creado dos videos para ayudar a que usted guíe a su estudiante virtual en completar el examen i-Ready . El primer video explica que es el examen i-Ready y como nosotros usamos la información que el examen provee. El 2do video le enseñará a las familias como tener acceso al examen para sus estudiantes y como ustedes pueden ayudarlos antes y durante el examen. Los dos videos pueden ser vistos aquí (letras azules): https://tinyurl.com/clarkeiready

Virtual Learner Families, We will be asking all K-12 students to take the i-Ready diagnostic assessment before 10/16. Our elementary building has already begun to test and our secondary building will test the week of October 5th. We have created two videos to help you support your virtual learner in completing the i-Ready assessment. The 1st video will explain what the i-Ready test is and how we use the data it provides. The 2nd video will walk families through how their student will access the assessment and how you can support your student before and during the test. Both videos can be accessed at: https://tinyurl.com/clarkeiready

Good Afternoon, It's going to be even more important this year to have access to the most updated calendar for school activities. The Clarke Activities Department uses something called rSchool for scheduling. The hard copy of athletic schedules is only accurate the minute they were printed. We are strongly encouraging you to use our web-based system to be able to have access at your fingertips to the most updated calendar. When events change, I change it within rSchool and it updates the calendar automatically. Please go to the URL below to get direct access to calendar information. https://www.southcentralconf.org/public/genie/664/school/6/
