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 “email@example.com” to your email contacts. Note: add “firstname.lastname@example.org” 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!

Walk and Roll News
The Walk n' Roll Committee would like to announce that after countless meetings, the city has granted us an ALL WAY STOP SIGN at the intersection of Rue Mirassou & Mosher to be installed in the next three to six weeks. Thank you to the Walk n' Roll Committee for all their hard work and persistence and effort in helping to make this school a safer environment for our students.
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.
