Principal's Letter

Dear Clark families,
Congratulations to our Clark JH Swim Team!  They won the league championship this season. Many thanks to Coach Faith, our junior high swimmers and parents for supporting the team.  In other Junior High news, our student resource officer, Matt Simon, and Assistant Principal Eric Higgins, visited each community to teach students about being good digital citizens and how to be safe internet and social media users.  Parents, please ask your students about these lessons and help them use their cell phones and computers safely.  There are several great articles about Montessori and digital citizenship available.  Please see here for an overview provided by our friends at the Maria Montessori Academy in British Columbia. 

“Free choice is one of the highest of all mental processes.” Maria Montessori
