Highlights from Mrs. Hill

April 23, 2014  


Dear Parents,


Calling all walkers and bikers to ClarkstonJunior High School on Sunday, May 4th!! It’s Clarkston’s annual Walk for SCAMP. Join the fun by walking or riding your bike to help raise money for special needs children to attend this great summer camp.  Please note it’s a new venue this year. To participate, be sure to bring your permission slip to Mrs. Comp’s room and pick up a pledge form.  Invite your parents, sisters, brothers, grandparents, and even your pet dog can walk with you.  Come enjoy some snacks and get some exercise for a good cause!


We have many boys and girls in our class that have summer birthdays.  If your child’s birthday is during the summer and he/she would still like to celebrate at school please choose a date in May to bring in a treat to share with the class.  Drop me a note to let me know the date you’re planning to have your child celebrate.


Many children have returned from spring break without their gym shirt.  A gym shirt is needed for participation in gym and is also needed for other special classes as well.  Please help your child this weekend to make sure that their gym shirt is in their backpack and back at school on Monday.  Thanks so much for your help with this. J


As always, I welcome your comments, concerns or questions.  Please feel free to call or write.


Enjoy the rest of the week and our warmer spring days!
