2016-17 Clopton Elementary Staff

Letter from the Principal

Activities are springing up in April!


Welcome Back!

I hope you enjoyed your Spring Break and sharpened your saws with family and friends!  Students seem rejuvenated and are working hard!

            We have activities springing up all throughout April at Clopton!  Kindergarten Round Up will be held on Wednesday, April 5 and Friday, April 7.  The screenings will be held from 8:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m. in the Multi-Purpose Room. Please call the elementary office to set up an appointment for screening and enrollment for the 2017-18 school year!

PTO and PAT are springing together on April 8. PTO is hosting MoCHIP (Missouri Child Identification Program,) a free event for all ages, in conjunction with the PAT Spring Fling. There will be a variety of activities for children birth through 5 years of age at the Spring Fling.  PTO will have sandwiches, chips, drinks, and dessert available that day.  The event is from 10 a.m.–2 p.m. in the Clopton Cafeteria and Multi-Purpose Room.

By now students in Grades 3-6 should have received an invitation to MAP ENRICHMENT NIGHT which is April 11 from 3-4:30 p.m.  Invitations were sent home with your student on Friday, March 31 and were emailed to you as well.  See the article on page 5 for more details!

        The final PTO meeting of the year is on Thursday, April 20 at 6:30 p.m.  Kindergarten and 1st grade will both be presenting. The Title 1 Team will also be presenting that evening.  Refreshments will be served.  With the new Pre-K playground area now in use, we have some older playground equipment that will be available through silent auction.  We will begin the silent auction at the PTO meeting and it will continue through the end of the day on April 21.  The equipment is Little Tykes brand including items such as a swing-set, climber w/slides, log cabin, smaller climber w/slide, teeter totter as well as a couple of various riding cars/wagons.

Springing up last will be the 5th grade D.A.R.E. Graduation on Friday, April 28 at 2 p.m. in the Multi-Purpose Room.  Chad Perkins, D.A.R.E. Officer, and Pike County Sheriff Stephen Korte will both be present to hand out certificates and awards.  Chris Grote, Missouri Department of Conservation, will be here to speak as well.  Parents are welcome to attend. Refreshments will be served.

        April and May bring numerous opportunities for the students, staff and parents to come together and celebrate accomplishments and participate in special activities.  Please watch for updates in your child’s classroom newsletter each week and on Clopton’s website http://www.cloptonhawks.com
