Dear Members of the Clark Community,
As I say each year, the most remarkable aspect of being an educator is that each September we get to start anew, building on the strengths of the past but making the necessary adjustments to become even stronger as we move ahead. For that reason, the opening of our new school year is accompanied by excitement for me. I would be remiss if I did not thank our twelve-month and ten-month/two-week administrators and support staff for all of their diligent work this summer. Their efforts, as always, are a central reason why we will be ready for an outstanding beginning. Our maintenance team led by Mr. John Pingor is deserving of a special acknowledgement for their preparation of our buildings and grounds. They engage in projects throughout the year so that our students and staff are provided with enhanced facilities. The importance of this physical upkeep of our schools should never be devalued. Let us be certain not to forget the strong support from our Board of Education. Their unwavering commitment to our students and staff makes what we do possible.
Schools reopened for students on Wednesday, September 6. This first day of school is always a most special one and one that we, as a school district, are excited for. This year is no exception. Getting to see a large number of our parents and guardians at our various Back-to-School Nights will be equally rewarding. CPA’s is scheduled for Monday, September 11; CHK’s for Thursday, September 14; VRS’s for Monday, September 18; ALJ’s for Tuesday, September 19; and FKH’s for Wednesday, September 20. Please know that we, as an administrative team, have an open door policy and are here to address any concerns that you may have. It is our sincere hope to continue to “inspire greatness” through our work.
Superintendent of Schools
