Principal's Message

Welcome to Carolyn A. Clark Elementary School where “Our Mission is Learning!”  To learn more about our wonderful school please read on!


Our learning community at school is filled with excellent students and professional teachers who work hard each day in a warm and challenging academic environment.  The primary focus of our school is student achievement and student learning—particularly in the core academic areas of reading literacy, mathematics, science and social studies.  In addition to our standards-based academic program, students have the opportunity to participate in a wide variety of enrichment programs, assemblies, field trips, dramatizations, and hands-on activities.  Students will experience deeper learning through problem and project based learning.  These opportunities are made possible by our dedicated and passionate staff, and our generous and hardworking PTA.


Technology is a focus at Carolyn Clark.  We integrate technology into the core curriculum.  Computers are readily available in classrooms and the library.  Mobile devices, such as ipad, laptop and chromebook carts are accessible to students and staff.  Student learning is enhanced by our ability to reach out to the world through our Internet access—available throughout the school.  This extends our learning beyond the traditional classroom.  Students and teachers alike utilize technology for research, presentations, I-Movies, Power Point presentations, etc., as well as for traditional word processing needs.


Finally, we welcome all of you to be involved in our school community whether it is through volunteering in your child’s classroom or working on a PTA committee, being an ABC parent, an Arts Attack Docent—or just by helping here or there when you can.  We are part of one big school community and we are proud of our students, parents, and staff!
