Strong parental and community support is vital in achieving Clark’s mission to "seek the highest and most complete academic environment for each student" and "form a human community that nurtures an atmosphere of caring and sets a thoughtful social climate." Our goal is to have all Clark families do the following at least once a year:
- Attend 1 Meeting
- Volunteer 1 Hour
- Attend 1 School Event
- Make 1 monetary donation
Here are a few ways that you can get involved in supporting Clark's mission
Partners in Education
We are looking for organizations to partner with Clark in ways that will benefit both the organizations and Clark. As the Clark budget gets ever tighter, it is essential that we tap into the resources of organizations who will support us with donations of time, products and/or money. These are win-win partnerships! We receive your help and you are recognized as a supportive organization in the commmunity.
Contact the Clark Office at 363-7100 if you would like to be a Partner in Education with Clark.
Announcements sent via email - Get all the latest Clark info by receiving Principal Dean Blase's weekly email announcements; contact Lead Secretary Monika Hines and ask for your name to be added to the email list. (NOTE: as of October 22, 2015, there seems to be a problem adding new people to this list; the District is working to resolve the problem, but let Monika know if you are not getting emails.)
Announcements posted to the "News"/"What's Happening at Clark?" section of the website - each week, the announcements sent out by Principal Dean Blase are condensed and posted to the homepage under "What's Happening at Clark?" and under the main menu tab "News."
