Dear Lower Lab Families,
On Friday, October 27th, we will commence with our Tenth Annual Storybook Character Day. Weather permitting, we enjoy a parade as part of our celebration. We will visit all the classrooms celebrate literacy and words. Students are invited to dress as their favorite character from a book and students must also bring the book to school to present to their classmates. Students can also dress as a much-admired vocabulary word. For example, if your son or daughter would like to dress as the word parallel, you could take two longer rectangular pieces of construction paper. Punch holes at the top. Loop together and hang around your neck. Write the word “parallel” on each strip. Extending on our celebration in this way allows us to learn new words and open up the experience for additional students to participate.
Storybook character day is about the celebration of literacy and the love of words during the school day. Treats, pumpkins and other celebratory items are reserved for the PTA sponsored Halloween Party.
Dear Fifth Grade Families,
After a comprehensive review, the Clinton School has changed its admissions process. The school will no longer administer a school-based assessment to prospective students. In addition, it will rank more than first choice applicants. These changes will take effect immediately for prospective 5th and 8th graders.
The updated information on the Clinton School’s process and rubric can be found on its website at theclintonschool.net.
