Dear Clarksdale Students and Parents/Guardians, 
The year is quickly flying by. So much has happened and we have really enjoyed sharing in the learning successes of our students and all of the exciting extra-curricular activities in place. 
We have continued to see engaged students, both academically, as shown in the fabulous work displayed and presented throughout the school, and socially in events such as our Mural Painting with ArtHouse, the preparation of our Musical and our recent Multi-cultural cooking night. We have also enjoyed 
wolf pack assemblies and are looking forward to our next one on April 11th, in support of International Day of Pink. Inquiry-based thinking and learning continue, guided by dedicated and professional staff and we continued to use wellbeing, MindUp and community building strategies with our students. We also introduced Unlearn to our staff in support of our focus on belonging and inclusion for all students, staff and families. 
Extra-curricular activities continue at a busy pace! From intramurals to book clubs, team tryouts, robotics, Battle of the Books, clubs, including chess, beyblades, Ecoclub, Colour Me Calm, skipping and even a new coding club, there seems to be something for everyone here at Clarksdale! Coming in April are more exciting activities including skipping club and Jump Rope for Heart Kick-off. 
Our biggest news for April is the presentation of our 2nd musical, "Wonka". We are excited to see so many students involved in this fabulous production. We hope you will be able to join us at one of our shows. There is no admission cost for audience members; however, donations are welcome. Proceeds will be going to support our "library refreshment fund" in order to provide new and increased books in our library. 
An important source of support for many of our students and families is the Halton Learning Foundation. On April 10th, we will be hosting a Toonie Tuesday, collecting Toonies, as part of our "Give a Little, Help A Lot" campaign. Funds collected are used to support families in need within our own community, so please remember to bring in a toonie to help out this important organization. 
Je suis aussi tres fiere du niveau de franc;ais que j'entends chaque jour ici a Clarksdale et j'aime pratiquer avec mes amis en immersion ainsi que le programme cadre. Bravo a taus! 
Many thanks for your ongoing partnership in our students' learning. 
And Remember to Imagine, Believe and Achieve! Imaginer, Croire et Atteindre!
