    How can you support the Clark PTO?

    We've got a lot of different ways that you can support the Clark PTO and have put together a new Support the Clark PTO page that lists out all the ways you can help ensure we can fulfill our mission to make Clark the best place for all children.

    Did you know the Clark PTO spends approximately $165 per child per year thanks to your generosity! And we are able to do this without asking you to sell pizza's, wrapping paper or any of the traditional fund raisers schools typically use. How can we do this? It's through your support of the Annual Fund and our yearly Trivia/Silent Auction.

    Now is the time to give to the Annual Fund! Our goal this year is to raise $9,000 by December 1, 2019. Any size donation is appreciated and will help push us closer to our goal. Also, remember that ANYONE can donate so be sure to share this information with friends and family. Many companies also match charitable donations so be sure to check with your employer too! The Support the Clark PTO page has a link to all the information you will need to setup your employer matching donation.

    How can you contribute to the Annual Fund?

    • Donations can be made via Venmo. Just send your donation to @ClarkPTO and be sure to note "Annual Fund" in the description field.
    • To make a credit card donation, visit the Donate to the Annual Fund link and you will be taken to the Annual Fund site where you can make your donation.

    Clark Equity Cooperative

    Give me a C, Give me a E, Give me a C - what does that spell? Clark Equity Cooperative. What is that you ask? CEC is a parent led group that believes that growing ourselves and our community is a necessary step towards ensuring all Clark students and families have what they need to feel valued and be an integral part of our school community.

    During our gatherings we strive to think deeply about the systems, structures and practices currently in place and how we might improve those to create a community that emanates awareness, inclusiveness and equity for all.

    Interested? Come to our first meeting September 25th 7-8:30p in the Clark Library
