CELEBRATE EARTH DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Clara Barton Presents
To help celebrate Earth Day 2014 (April 22), Clara Barton School is holding a “Junk It” contest for all students. We are asking students to do some early spring cleaning and turn clean, household junk into a unique art treasure! Let your imagination run wild! Your creation can be a work of art worthy of occupying space in an art museum, an amazing musical instrument, or it can even be a one-of-a-kind invention. Before you throw away that empty milk bottle, think again, it can be used for an award winning creation. Just be sure you use your junk for your masterpiece.
Prizes will be awarded to students in each grade level based on creativity and originality. Judging will be done by members of our community. All entries must be brought in to school by Monday, May 5. Please be sure the student’s name and home room number are either on the project or on an index card attached to the project.
This project is voluntary.
We’re looking forward to seeing how creative you can be.

Clara Barton School
Future half days across the District are as follows: Tues March 11th, Tues March 25th and Tues May 6th. On half days, we will begin dismissal at 12:00 and lunch will not be served. Please be sure to send a snack to school with your child. Our After-School Program is open on all half days.
Attendance and Start Time
One of our school wide initiatives this year is student attendance. Student absenteeism, tardiness and dismissals have reached a level of concern as they directly impact student success in school. There is no replacement for instruction when your child is not in school. As we certainly understand there are many valid reasons that contribute to students not being in school, we are concerned for the situations that fall outside of being valid.
School opens at 8:35 and students begin Morning Work that is designed to reinforce basic skills as soon as they arrive. Please work with us to ensure your child is here each and every day, on time, and ready to go. If you are experiencing difficulties getting your child to school in the morning, call me and we will help.
Help us help your child succeed; bring him/her to school on time every day!
We have new hours for the preschool and a new drop-off and pick-up location. The drop-off and pick-up will be to the far right corner of the building's main entrance near door #10. Please pull up close to that door and park to side of the driveway. Do not enter or go through the driveway that takes you to the back playground.
The new hours are as follows:
*AM Session (1/2 day): 9:15-11:45
*PM Session (1/2 day): 12:45-3:15
*All Day Session: 9:15-3:15
