Happy June Clarksdale Families! 


It is hard to believe we are beginning our final month of the school year!  That said, there is still lots of learning and activities are going on in the Den.


Here is What’s Going On In the Den this week:


This week is Ride to School Week

Starting tomorrow, Monday June 4th, Clarksdale is participating in Bike to School Week!  We are celebrating all the fun ways to roll to school!   The Clarksdale Health Action Team (CHAT) will be outside by the bike racks before the bell rings every morning to give out stickers to those who bike, scooter or skateboard to school.  CHAT will also put your name into a draw to win fun prizes.  Don’t forget to wear your helmet and lock your bike up!


Grade 2 French Immersion Information Evening

If your child is registered to be attending Grade 2 French Immersion next September, please join us on Monday evening, from 6:00pm-7:00pm.  The meeting will be reviewing the program and plans for next year.


Reminder: Talent Show


Grade 5 students in the Talent Show your rehearsal is Monday June 4th at the first nutrition break in the Gym. Bring your lunch and music.


Grade 6 students in the Talent Show your rehearsal is Tuesday June 5th at the first nutrition break in the Gym. Bring your lunch and music.



Election Day – Thursday

A reminder that election day in Ontario is Thursday and Clarksdale is a polling station.  As such the gym area will be closed to students and staff all day and the YMCA will be relocated to the kindie classrooms and library.


Fun Fair is next week!

Mark your calendars --- our 32nd Fun Fair is just a week away, on Tuesday June 12th!  Please join us for fun, games, bouncy castles, food and fun!  A wonderful way to end the year as a great big Clarksdale Family!  We hope to see you all there:  5:30-8:00.


Final call for volunteers.  We appreciate all those who have signed up.  And we still need more!  We'll also need coolers to be dropped off by Monday June 11th (labelled with name and oldest child's class code).  There is a newsletter coming home early this week with more details.  The next fun fair meeting is Tues June 5th at 7:15 in the staffroom.



Lost and Found Items

Our lost and found is overflowing!  We have many tables full of clothing etc.  Please come and take a look.  Thank you!
