2018-19 Elementary Faculty & Staff

Marching into Spring!

As we MARCH into spring, we are anticipating warmer weather. We have had a long, cold winter this year. According to the weather man, sunny days are just around the corner! Fingers crossed!

Congratulations go out to the following students won top honors at the Clopton Science Fair this past week and will proceed on to the County Science Fair: In grades 6-8, Rileigh Kuntz & Lauren Blackwell (partners) ranked highest, John Cook & Jayden Baker (partners) ranked second highest in that division. Grades 3-5, the highest score (over entire fair) was Kyle West; Justin Umfleet ranked second highest for 3-5. In grades K-2, Danika Martin tied with Bryson Vanbebber for top rank in K-2. The Pike County Science Fair is March 7 with Louisiana School District hosting this year.

At Clopton Elementary we are celebrating Dr. Seuss’ Birthday with activities on March 1 and a visit with one of Clopton’s own, Stephanie Paasch, an author of two books! See Mrs. MItchell’s article inside.

Many students have MARCHED right along and have achieved their reading goal for the year and many more intend to achieve their goal by the end of the year as well!

Please encourage your child to read every night to help them reach their goal and find their place on the Reading Bulletin Board at school!

Students and staff in grades 3-6 will be MARCHING right along in preparation for the MAP test in mid-April. In preparation, students will be taking practice assessments on the computer. In addition, MAP Day is in the making for students in April. Watch for

more details coming soon in your student’s Friday newsletter.

Spring Break is just around the corner! Students are eager to MARCH into fun

activities with friends and family from March 28 through April 1. With a quick peek at April, we have Early Childhood Screenings scheduled for April 10 and Kindergarten Screenings on April 11 from 8:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m. Call the elementary office to schedule an appointment at 242-3546.

With spring just around the corner, additional activities will be as well! Keep a close eye on your student’s classroom newsletter and the Clopton website for fun activities yet to come!

As always, if you have any issues or concerns, please contact the elementary office.
