Join the PTO Executive Committee

It's that time of year where we need to start looking for our future PTO Executive Committee members. We will be looking to fill several positions - Co Jr. Presidents, Jr. Secretary, Jr. Treasurer and Jr. Communications. If you are interested or have questions about any of these positions, please reach out to the 2018-2019 PTO Executive Committee members for details. PTO Executive Committee members serve two-year terms, first as junior and the second as the senior. This ensures a smooth transition between members and allows new members a year to learn the position. Additional information about each position will be provided in the near future.

PTO Meeting - Guest Speaker

The next PTO meeting will be on April 1st, and that's no joke! We will be hearing from a guest speaker on childhood anxiety. Mark your calendars for this important discussion from 6:30-8:00pm in the Clark Library. Child care is provided. More details on the guest speaker will be provided in the next Eagle Eye.

Proposition E - FAQ

On April 2nd, Proposition E will be on the ballot requesting approval for funding to make safety changes and address overcrowding in the WGSD schools. The District has provided a Frequently Asked Questions for more information.

Clark Night at the Ballpark

On Wednesday, April 10th at 6:45 PM, the Cardinals will be playing the Dodgers and our own Clark Soaring Singers will be singing “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” during the 7th inning stretch! Please join us for a “Clark Night at the Ballpark” and support our 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade choir members! Tickets cost $15 each and can be ordered through Mr. Schwartz. Also, all tickets purchased through Mr. Schwartz will be entered into a drawing for 2 passes to a Cardinals Nation Pre-Game party! The party starts at 4:15 and includes all you can eat food (hot dogs, brats, nachos, salads, and desserts) and drinks (both adult and kid friendly). If interested please fill out the Cardinals ticket order form and return it Mr. Schwartz with payment (cash or check – Clark Elementary) in a sealed envelope. The order deadline is Monday, March 25th (return from Spring Break) or until supplies run out!

5th Grade Fundraiser - Firenza Pizza

Shout out to all the families that enjoyed delicious pizza and ice cream at Firenza Pizza and Ziggy's Ice Cream on Feb 27th. Your support raised $271 for the Clark 5th Graders. Thank You to Tracy Brangle, the other volunteers on the Fifth Grade Events committee and the 5th Graders who volunteered and served pizza that night.
