April 2017

Dear Clarksdale Students and Parents/Guardians,

The year is quickly flying by. 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 Movie Night, Corners of Kindness, ArtHouse and guest speakers. We have also enjoyed bi-monthly assemblies led by our students, focusing on our school values of Imagine, Believe and Achieve. -based thinking and learning continue, guided by dedicated and professional staff and we have introduced MindUp thinking to all of our students.

Extra-curricular activities continue at a busy pace! From intramurals to book clubs, team tryouts, robotics, Battle of the Books, clubs, including chess, skipping and even a hair Club, there seems to be something for everyone here at Clarksdale! in April are more exciting activities including

participation in the Halton Showcase, We Are Silent Day and Jump Rope for Heart Kick-off.

As you know, outdoor education and respect for our environment are an important part of our school culture and the activities with our Eco Club, Eco Challenge Weeks, Wonder Does Wonders and Outdoor classroom continue.

An important source of support for many of our students and families is the Halton Learning Foundation. April, we will be hosting a Toonie
Tuesday, collecting Toonies, as part of our "Give a Little, Help A Lot" campaign. 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 fière du niveau de français que jentends chaque jour ici à Clarksdale et jaime pratiquer avec mes amis en immersion ainsi que le programme cadre. Bravo à tous!

Many thanks for your ongoing partnership in our students' learning. And Remember to Imagine, Believe and Achieve!
