Notes From The Nurse

As we begin the school year it is important to remember a few things:         

Please be sure your child gets a good night sleep and eats breakfast.

Do not send medication in your child’s backpack.  All medication whether over the counter or prescription must have a written authorization from your physician.   If your child requires the use of an EPI-PEN for severe allergic reactions, please be sure to have a current medication authorization for this school year and bring in the medication to the Health Office.

If your child wears glasses, make sure they bring them everyday to school and the prescription is as current as it can be.  Let your child’s teacher know if they need special placement in the classroom.

Do not send your child to school if they have a fever of 100 or greater.  Children recovering from an illness should be fever free for at least 24 hours without medication before returning to school.  Students taking antibiotics should be on the medication for at least 24 hours before returning to school.  The CDC recommends that everyone 6 months and older get a flu vaccine when it becomes available.

If your child has a specific health concern please be sure to contact the School Nurse assigned to your school so that the proper accommodations can be made to insure your child’s safety.

If your child has any changes in their health during the school year please be sure to update this information with the school office as this feature is not yet available in parent portal.  

Remember – Healthy Children Learn Better.   We look forward to a great year!

PTA Advocacy Update

Screen Shot 2015-11-06 at 1.35.20 PM.png

PTA is Advocacy – Who Knew?

Welcome!  Do you know PTA does more than raise funds for programs and supplies at your school?

Do you know your PTA, just a generation ago, did NO fundraising for schools because California schools were the model schools for the U.S. ranking in the top five in funding and academic performance?  Now statewide, California (outside of Palo Alto) ranks near bottom in per-student funding (cost of living adjusted) and academic performance.  So, PTAs shifted to incorporate fundraising.

Some moms started PTA over 115 years ago, as an advocacy organization for children.  Their primary mission was to get children out of the factories and into the schools.

PTA is now the largest and oldest all-volunteer advocacy organization for children in California.

Because of CA PTA advocacy, we have Kindergarten, a Juvenile Justice system (so children aren’t tried as adults), mandatory immunizations, bicycle helmet laws, hot and healthy lunches, a minimum forty percent state general funds level for our schools, and so much more.

California PTA current advocacy goals are:

  • Increase per-pupil funding by $3000 to move California toward the national average
  • A full curriculum which eliminates the opportunity gap and ensures all children succeed
  • One billion dollars of one-time funding for family engagement

What can you do?

1.      Join Carolyn Clark PTA.  More voices means more power behind PTA advocacy efforts to improve Carolyn Clark and the schools in our communities and statewide.  Pick up the PTA membership form at the Carolyn Clark main office or print out the form:

2.      Sign up for CA PTA Legislation “Action Alerts” – alerting you to timely email from Sacramento on behalf of our students:

Upcoming PTA Advocacy Events

Join us at the annual Sixth District PTA Legislative Roundtable, November 12, 2015, 7 p.m. – 8:30 p.m., to share your views with our locally elected representatives.  FREE.

Mrs. Marcias Named ‘Symetra Hero in the Classroom’

Symetra, Wells Fargo and the San Francisco 49ers honored Carolyn Clark Elementary School teacher Bernadette Marcias as a “Symetra Hero in the Classroom” on Oct. 27, 2015 during a surprise school assembly. Marcias teaches sixth grade at the K–6 school, located in San Jose, California.

“Bernadette Marcias is an amazing teacher who has the ability to connect with children at all levels. She has brought a number of programs to Carolyn Clark Elementary and helped students understand the importance of arts, culture and giving back to the community,” said Arthi Aiyappan, the parent of a former student. “Mrs. Marcias made a big difference in my daughter’s sixth-grade experience — her confidence blossomed as she got more comfortable trying new things.” Aiyappan nominated Marcias for the Symetra Heroes in the Classroom® award.

Mrs. Marcias has a gift for connecting with her students’ varying academic levels and integrating it with hands-on learning,” said Aiyappan. “She gives every child in her class a chance to speak-up and participate. I believe school is not just about academics — and in her remarkable classroom my daughter grew in more ways than I can articulate.”

Marcias is one of 16 K–12 teachers in the San Francisco Bay Area who will be honored for educational excellence in the Symetra Heroes in the Classroom program during the 2015 NFL season. Teachers are recognized in front of their students and peers at surprise in-school presentations, and they receive a $1,000 donation for classroom books and supplies. In addition, they receive tickets to a 49ers home game and a special pre-game experience at Levi’s Stadium. Marcias will be recognized at the Nov. 8 game against the Atlanta Falcons.

Teachers may be nominated by their principal, district staff, student or student’s parent. The winners are selected based on their ability to make a real difference in students' lives; to go above and beyond in their day-to-day responsibilities; and to help students build life skills.

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.
