Happy Summer and Thank you from the PTO!

Dear Clifford Families,

Thank you to everybody who volunteered their time in class, outside of class (e.g. prepping for teachers), and at all Clifford events, including the Casino Night Auction, Winter Family Event, Daughter’s Dance, Lap-a-thon & Carnival, Read-a-thon, Fun With Your Son event, Lego Night, Alice In Wonderland Production, Movie Night and more.

Thank you for all your work as room parents, Art in Action docents and assistants, party and field trip organizers––and thank you to those of you who provided classroom supplies and/or donated funds to teachers for materials.  Thank you also to Clifford families and students who volunteered as Healthy Cities Tutors.
Thank you to all of you who served on the PTO Executive Board and other committees and positions. And thank you to everybody who donated money to the PTO throughout the year.

We appreciate all our teachers, staff and administrators for their hard work to educate every child in our school and for making our school a wonderful place to learn and grow.

We also want to extend a warm welcome to Leslie Crane, Clifford’s new Principal for 2017-18!  We look forward to next school year!
