We’re on the Bus… Oh the Places We Will Go!

Our theme for the 2017-2018 school year is “We’re on the Bus… Oh the Places We Will Go,” based on the book The Energy Bus by Jon Gordon. Gordon provides ten rules to fuel your life, work, and team with positive energy. The Energy Bus is a great reminder of the impact a positive attitude has on an individual, a team, and organization.  As leaders, teachers, staff, students, and families, we can jump on board the bus and have a positive impact on learning and growing for our students. Together, we are better!

Please don’t send birthday invitations to school unless you are inviting the entire class. Students get their feelings hurt by being left out. We cannot give out addresses of families due to privacy laws.
The Clear Lake School District has a policy that requests all classroom treats be purchased from a store and brought to school in the original store package. We are not allowed to serve homemade treats for celebrations.

If you have any questions, please contact your child’s teacher or the school office.

You are always welcome to eat lunch with your child. However, if you plan to eat school lunch, we do ask that you call the school office before 9:00 a.m. to be sure that we have enough food prepared.
  1. Students must sit with their parents or in the Clear Creek section (south end) of the football stadium. Please be respectful and do not block others’ views.
  2. Students must stay on the CL side of the football field.
  3. No footballs or other throwing-type toys are allowed. Footballs cause the most problems with supervision. Kids get rough and want to play “tackle” football. Please don’t allow your child to bring a football to the game.
  4. If students don’t follow these guidelines, they will not be allowed to attend the next home game.
  5. Students must have their activity cards or they will have to pay to get in.
Just a reminder that the front doors are locked and you will need to push the doorbell. The secretaries will allow you to enter. After entering, please be sure you sign in and out of the office. You will be given a visitor’s badge.

It’s for the safety of our students. We appreciate your willingness and cooperation.

If you would like to be notified about school cancellations and other important school information, sign up for our parent notification system. Stop in the office to sign up.
