What is going on in the Den - June 18th

posted Jun 18, 2018, 7:42 PM by Neil Hammond

Good Afternoon Clarksdale Families,


Hope everyone enjoyed a fantastic weekend and a Happy Fathers’ Day to all of our Clarksdale Dads!


Only 2 weeks left in our school year!  Hard to believe we are so close to the end, but still lots happening in the Den.


Bee Stand Continues

Due to popular demand, our “Bee-autiful” bee stand sold out quickly on Friday so will continue this week.  Our students in Class 3/4-1 FI and 4-1 FI are buzzing to make additional bracelets and magnets to drive awareness of the importance of bees to our ecosystem.  Proceeds from the sale of these items will be going to “The Humble Bee” in Hamilton, whose work supports the preservation and protection of our bee population.


Volunteer Tea on Friday

A reminder that our volunteer tea is scheduled for this Friday, June 22nd at 10:45. Please join us in the library for some treats and coffee/tea.  We would love to be able to take this time to thank you for all of your hard work in supporting our staff and students.  If you plan on attending, please return the form or contact the office.


Staff Appreciation Luncheon date has been changed

The staff appreciation luncheon date has been changed to Monday, June 25th.  The team will be sending out an invitation for donations of food, gift cards and/or volunteers.  A lovely way to show our appreciation for our awesome staff.  Many thanks to all for helping out!


Running Club final week

Please remember to bring a water bottle, as it is already hot at 8:15am!


Breakfast Club final week

The Breakfast Club resumes this week, 8:45 in the gym.  This will be our final breakfast club for the year. 

Every Friday morning this year, our students have been enjoying healthy breakfast options, prepared by our Breakfast club team.  This dedicated team comes every Thursday to prepare and then each Friday to provide this service for our students.  Over 100 students enjoy it each week, and many others enjoy the items as snacks later in the day.  In doing this each week, we are helping to ensure our students start the day on a healthy and positive note, which has also been proven to help their learning.  So a tremendous appreciation to our Breakfast Club Volunteers and to Halton Food For Thought for making this possible for our students.


Final Spirit Day

Join us this Friday for our final Spirit Day:  Beach Day!  Wear tropical colours, sunglasses and hats (no bathing suits please!).  Perfect for our Year end Wolfpack play day, which will take place period 5 and 6!

End of Year Reminders:

Please remember to return all library books.  Also, please ask your child to bring home clothing and other personal items asap, so that they are not loaded down on the last day of school!


JK Registration:

PLEASE come in to register if you have not already done so.  We have heard that there are young brothers or sisters out there who have not yet done so!  We are building the classes now so please come in asap to register.


Important Construction Notice

Clarksdale will be undergoing some renovations/construction over the summer.  In order to get the work underway as quickly as possible, the construction is set to begin the week of July 9th. This means that the school will not be accessible until August 19th.  We ask that students take all of their belongings home before the end of the year. We also ask that if you are registering your child for next year, please make sure to do so this week as the school will not be open after July 6th.
