Dear Parents and Guardians, 

It's hard to imagine that the current school year is coming to an end. As we finish our year and look forward to the summer months, we congratulate the students on their successes and accomplishments. We wish all the best to the students who will be moving to different schools in the fall. We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for a fantastic learning-filled year at Clarksdale. Your ongoing support at the school is appreciated and is what makes Clarksdale such a wonderful communi­ty. A special thanks to the staff who have worked hard all year to ensure the chil­dren enjoyed a happy and rewarding year. 

As the year ends, we want to thank and wish a fond farewell to some staff who are moving on to new adventures. Mrs. Caldwell, Ms. Edwards, Mlle Clutterbuck, Mlle Bochek, Ms. lannaci. We also wish Ms. Nunes all the best in her maternity leave. We would like to thank Ms. Ruplen, Mlle Allan, Mr. Slater, Ms. Bozz, Ms. Vandenberg, Mr. Scott and Ms. Dawson for their hard work this year as they move onto new opportunities in the fall. We thank all of these staff members for their contributions to our Clarksdale community and we wish them all the best. We wel­come Ms. Plas back from maternity leave in September. We also welcome back Ms. Robertson, and Ms. Wetselaar, who will be re-joining us in the new school year. 

A special thank you and farewell go to Ms. Braunberger, our treasured Vice Principal, who will be joining the staff at Boyne Public School in September. We have been so fortunate to have Ms. Braunberger's leadership, kindness and support and we wish her every success in her new school. We would also like to welcome Ms. Rhodes-Foley, who will be joining us from Alexander's. We are delighted to have Ms. Rhodes-Foley join our Clarksdale family and I know we will all make her feel the "Wolfpack" spirit in September. 

We still have lots of learning and fun in June. We are looking forward to seeing everyone at our Fun Fair on June 13th. Students are also participating in the Track Meet on June 14th, school-wide Amazing Race on June 26th, and of course our Grade 6 Farewell celebration, which will cap off an exciting year. 

We wish everyone a safe and restful summer and we look forward to seeing you in September. 

Mrs. Reesor, Principal Ms. Braunberger, Vice Principal
