From the Superintendent: Thank you for a great year!

A message from Dr Ryan

Dear Clarkston Community Schools Families,

As we reach the final day of this school year, I want to extend my heartfelt gratitude to all of you. This year has been filled with achievements, challenges, and countless memorable moments.

To our dedicated teachers and staff, your unwavering commitment to our students' growth and well-being has been truly inspiring. You have gone above and beyond, creating a nurturing and stimulating environment that fosters learning and development. Your passion and professionalism have made a lasting impact on our students' lives, and for that, we are deeply grateful.

To our amazing parents and guardians, your support, trust, and active involvement in your children's education have been instrumental in their success. Your partnership with our school has created a strong foundation for our students to thrive. Whether it was helping with homework, volunteering at school events, or simply being there to cheer on our students, your contributions have made a significant difference.

To our incredible students, congratulations on a fantastic year! Your hard work, curiosity, and enthusiasm have been the driving force behind our success. You have demonstrated resilience, kindness, and a willingness to learn, and we couldn't be prouder of all you have accomplished. 

I hope that all of you take the time this summer to relax, recharge, and enjoy the break—you've earned it! 

Again, thank you for being such an integral part of our school community, and I wish you all a safe, restful, and joyful summer break.


Dr. Shawn Ryan
