Phone message for the week of 9/9...

This information is for the week of September 9th.

Tutoring is in full effect! See the information our website and posted around campus! Tutoring is
offered Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays from 3-4pm. Signing in and out is required so you can monitor your child’s attendance.

All students have received a success presentation from their Social Science teacher. 8th grade classes were accompanied by a Clifton administrator. Talk to your kids about the presentation and discussions in classrooms on what it takes to have a successful middle school experience free from distractions and issues focused on respectfulness, responsibility and safety.
Tuesday is our first day of mindfulness for those that opt in. Students have the ability to sign up to
attend this class during their PE or elective class. This opportunity will occur once a month with our mindfulness teacher, Ms. Rachel.
As a reminder, IDs are required to be in the possession of students and will allow for expedited food lines and access the field and blacktop at lunchtime. If a student loses their ID, a replacement must be purchased from the librarian for a minimal cost.
We are still looking to recruit parents willing to volunteer on campus as Parents on Patrol and
currently we only have “4”. Please let me know if you are willing to serve in this capacity to support our kids.
Thank you to those who attended Back to School night last week. We appreciate the investment in your child’s future and to partner with Clifton in support of their success.
Our after school musical theater program is set to begin Sept. 17th. Applications due TOMORROW!  The program takes place on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:15-4:45.
PTSA is sponsoring our legacy tile wall located in our center quad on campus. We will be hosting one more painting day in September before our next installation day. You can choose to bring $20 and paint at lunch or simply visit Paint N’ Play on Myrtle Ave to paint your tile.
Tomorrow is our huge PTSA fundraising assembly, Step It Up. Expect your child to come home with information how to participate for awesome prizes and activities. Proceeds help to support our school with opportunities, equipment, and technology! Help us make this year the biggest event yet!
There is a School Board meeting on Wednesday night at 7:00 p.m. at the District Office.
Thank you to our September sponsor of the month Centre Stage Dance Academy. Check them out at
If you need to sign your student out of school early, please allow ample time for the process. We must check ID and verify the adult picking up. We cannot call students out of class ahead of time for safety and security purposes.
