Happy Thanksgiving Clarksdale Families,

We hope everyone enjoyed a wonderful weekend with friends and family.

This week brings many activities, as we continue our learning together

Mrs. Parker and Mme Dodgson would like to thank over 100 Clarksdale students in grades 3-6 that represented our school at the Cross Country Meet at Kelso last Thursday.  All the students tried their best and made us very proud of their efforts. Congratulations for working hard and being part of the team! Thank you also to the parents that offered to volunteer, as well as those who came to cheer the team on.


QSP Magazine Fundraiser continues this week.  A great way to support the school and take care of some people on your gift lists or offer fun and interesting reading opportunities for your family.  Please send in your paper order forms for QSP by October 11th.  Please remember ordering is available all year long on their website at


Kids4Kids begins nextThursday, October 18th, after school. Students who are participating will join Scott Graham in the library from 3:35-5:00 for great team building, self-confidence strategies and fun with friends!  Spots are still available.  If you would like to register, please drop by the office and pick up a form. 

Darksdale is coming to Clarksdale on October 26th!  An annual tradition is returning soon and we need your help.  Volunteers wanting to help with this year’s event can join us for a planning meeting on Thursday at 7:15 in the staff room.  Adult and grade 6 volunteer sign up forms will be sent home this week.

Breakfast Club Thursday at 8:40 in the gym.  All students are welcome to join us for a healthy breakfast to start their day.  Bus students are welcome to partake in the “Grab ‘n Go”.  Volunteers are always needed to help set up and serve.
