Peachjar eFlyers

button-orange-stacked_sm.png

The paper flyers we have been sending home will now be sent electronically to your email inbox. These e-flyers can also be viewed by clicking on the Peachjar button on our school’s website homepage. You may find it on the left column of our page under school newsletters.   Once the Peachjar button is ready, you will be notified.
 
This “green” initiative will save our schools tons of paper and reduce copy costs by thousands of dollars. On top of that, paperless delivery of school flyers removes a significant administrative burden from teachers, office staff, and volunteers.
 
No action is required on your part. You will receive a welcome email from the service provider (Peachjar) that includes a username and password. This is provided to give you the opportunity to manage your account and flyer delivery preferences. You do not need to login to receive or view e-flyers.
 
To ensure smooth delivery of this communication, we suggest you add “
school@peachjar.com” to your email contacts. Note: add “school@peachjar.com” to your contact list just as written; do not change it to the name of your school @peachjar.com. When you receive your first e-flyer, be sure to click “always display images.”
 
This system is used exclusively for distribution of school-approved flyers. Your email address will not be shared or used for any other purpose. Thank you for helping us save time, money, and lots of trees!

Reminder: Clark Elementary Birthday Policies

Although we recognize that birthdays are a very special time for children and they deserve recognition, school district guidelines and board policy (BP5030) prohibit bringing food or drinks to school for birthday celebrations. These guidelines and policies are in place to support the consistent educational message of student wellness and healthy lifestyle whether in the classroom, cafeteria or at home. Additional impacts include:

  • Loss of instructional time.
  • Logistical constraints placed on teachers.
  • Concern for our many students with food allergies.
  • Added strain on the office and custodial staff. 

If parents choose to provide items to classmates in celebration of birthdays, some alternative items may include pencils, bookmarks, stickers, or perhaps donating a book to the school or classroom library. 

Teachers may elect to honor students as they see fit by giving special recognition, singing of songs, special classroom duties, etc. 

Also, balloon bouquets can be distractive and/or disruptive to instruction and therefore parents are reminded of the school policy that balloon bouquets will not be delivered to classrooms during the school day. We want to thank you for your support of the school and district policies. Working together we can maintain our focus on providing a safe and productive environment at Clark School.

Please leave all toys at home

Please leave all toys at home, especially Kendamas. When children bring in toys from home, they become distracted and the other children do as well. Some toys get misplaced or broken, and then little ones get sad.  Toys will be confiscated and will need to be picked up by the parents if they are seen on campus.

Celebrating Carolyn Clark 2015

Fill the Shelves Fundraiser

Click on the picture below to watch the video of these incredible Clark Cubs present at the EESD Board Meeting:


 

In a time when e-readers and other screens seem to be taking the place of good old fashioned books – you know, the kind you can hold in your hands, where the spine cracks satisfyingly, and the pages can either embody the smell of fresh new paper or that satisfyingly musty scent of a much loved tome – our kids can sometimes surprise us with not only a love for old school paper and ink books, but also with a commitment to go above and beyond to make sure there are enough of those books to keep our library shelves filled to the edge.

Four students at Carolyn Clark Elementary – Nikhita Arun, Rebecca Dang and Rohan and Rahul Prabhu – approached Maria Moreton, a sixth grade teacher at Clark with an idea. They realized the number of books in the school library was glaringly low. There were empty shelves and lots of in-demand titles weren't available to Clark students. They researched and found that Carolyn Clark had the lowest number of books in the District, as well as badly outdated non-fiction. They further calculated that (by a large margin) their school had the lowest ratio of books-to-patron. They knew something needed to be done and these four were the ones to do it. They launched the idea to "Fill Our Shelves", which would become the name of the fundraising campaign to do just that.

The idea started with Arun, but all four – big readers, all – jumped in with both feet, meeting in Moreton's classroom before school, during recesses, and lunch time. "For the last few months, unless I was on duty, we were in my room working on the project," says Moreton.

Their goal was to raise $4000 - $5 each for 800 students. It was a big goal, especially for four young people with no real fundraising experience. In the end they raised $5000.The books are starting to arrive and get shelved now.

They leaned on parents of Carolyn Clark students, of course, but also reached out to the wider community, successfully soliciting support from individuals and companies like EOK Technologies, Freeman Orthodontics, and Vice Mayor Herrera. They offered prizes for fundraising goals reached to incentivize students (offering flashlights, bookmarks, books and other items for those who reached their goals). They worked their audiences, educating them on the need for these books and the difference they would make to Clark students, until their goal was first reached, and then, surpassed.

Library Media Assistant, Diane Hobbs and another sixth grade teacher, Grace Gonzales, were also instrumental in supporting the project. Gonzales' class raised the largest amount of money for the project; Hobbs assisted with research, acted as treasurer for the project and opened her office to be the center of operations. As the person occupying "book central" at the school Hobbs has a unique understanding of the need. So much so that when the fundraising totals were announced she did what Rahul Prabhu described as her "happy dance" (we regret our cameras were not on hand to witness said "happy dance" so faithful reader – you will need to simply imagine it...).

All the work these students put it isn't a one-time deal either. The school is committed to carrying on their important work. Hobbs points out that this project was "an inspiration to all of us." Sixth graders at Carolyn Clark will now be charged with living up to the extremely high bar set by Arun, Dang, and the Prabhu brothers.

"In our electronic age, it is refreshing to notice that a book still brings pleasure to a child, providing endless knowledge and wings for the imagination," says Moreton. "Never underestimate the power of our students! I am in awe of the humility of these four students. They humble me, they inspire all of us, and they validate the work we do as educators. They have made such a difference at our school, of which, they have yet to comprehend the extent."
