Chess club begins Friday, January 25 and will be held from 7:30a- 8:15a in the library. If your child is interested in participating please complete and return the registration form by January 18th. The format will be parent-led instruction/parent-supervised free play.

Parent volunteers are needed and appreciated (no chess experience necessary). Please come help when you can. If you have any questions or if you are willing volunteer to help please contact Kira Geile or Rick Dunn (Kira.geile@gmail.com or rick5418@gmail.com ).

Spring chess club registration form - registration is required even if your child participated in Chess Club during the fall session.

After School Enrichment (ASE) - SEEKING VOLUNTEERS!

We had a great response when we asked for Clark families to teach ASE classes. THANK YOU!!

Now we are hoping to get a similar response when asking for volunteers. We need volunteers for ASE to be a success. They are an extra set of hands and eyes in each class.

Sign up for the week or weeks you are available to volunteer at ASE Volunteer Sign-Up. Free childcare will be provided for preschool-aged children. As a thank you to volunteers, we will have an early sign up period for volunteers to select their child's ASE class.

ASE is a free program offered by the PTO to all students at Clark. Classes are held from 3:15pm - 4:15pm on 4 consecutive Wednesdays. The dates for this school year are 2/6, 2/13, 2/20 and 2/27. If you have any questions, please contact Jenny Crawford at jzcrawford.2008@gmail.com

NOTE: The ASE dates were finalized after the Buzz Book publication. Therefore, please note the dates above are the correct dates for ASE.

Read, Right and Run

We will be having an after school rally this Friday, Jan 11th. Remember to help your child fill out his or her tracking sheet or bag tag and bring it on Friday. We will meet afterschool until 4:15. You may pick your child up at the gym doors.
