April Brings a Shower of Activities!

Welcome Back!

We have been hit with showers of rain and even surprised with snow on April Fool’s Day! As we head into April, we will be “showered” with activities and, with any luck, no more snow! Hopefully, students have sharpened their saws with family and friends over break and are ready to be back at it!

We have a shower of activities all throughout April at Clopton! Our MAP Activity Day “The Amazing MAP Race” takes place our first day back on Wednesday, April 4 for grades 3-5.

Springing up next will be the 5th grade D.A.R.E. Graduation on Friday, April 6 at 1:45 p.m. in the Multi-Purpose Room. Chad Perkins, D.A.R.E. Officer, and Sheriff Stephen Korte will both be present to hand out certificates and awards. Our guest speaker is Chris Gamm, Pike County Presiding Commissioner. Parents are welcome to attend. Refreshments will be served.

Grades 3 and 4 will be MAP testing April 11-19. They will test over Language Arts April 11-13 and Math on April 17 and 19. Grade 5 will test over Language Arts April 30. Fifth graders will finish up with testing over Math on May 2 and Science on May 4. Grade 6 will be testing over Language Arts on April 23 and will finish up with Math on April 25. Please make sure your students get plenty of rest the night before testing and a good breakfast on the day of testing.

The next “shower” of activity is Kindergarten Roundup, which will be held on Wednesday, April 11 and Friday, April 13. 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 2018-19 school year!

PTO will shower us with activities in April and May. The final PTO meeting of the year is on Thursday, April 12 at 6:30 p.m. Kindergarten and 1st grade will both be presenting. Please mark your calendar for this event to find out what is happening with PTO, as well as enjoy the entertainment and refreshments with your child! PTO will be hosting two new events in April and May. The first event is “Donuts with Dudes” on April 24 followed with “Muffins with Misses” on May 8. Parent/Guardian/Grandparent/Aunt or Uncle may come enjoy donuts or muffins with their student (7:00 a.m. - 8:00 a.m.). Watch for more information to come home with students closer to the dates!

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

Thank you,
