Principal's Message

Principal’s Message


 Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year!


We would like to welcome you to Clegg Elementary School. The staff and I are looking forward to working with you and your children this year. I am very excited to be the Principal at Clegg Elementary School again this school year. We will strive to continue to provide an exciting and rewarding educational program for each and every child that attends Clegg School.


I know the end of the 2019-20 school year did not end the way we had all hoped.  I also know that this school year will be starting virtually due to COVID-19.  Please know the district and the Clegg staff have worked very hard to ensure that students will receive the best possible virtual learning experience until we are able to get back to learning at the school site.  Please make sure to contact your teacher or the front office if you have any questions throughout the process.  We are all in this together!


The Clegg staff is very excited about moving into our eighth year as a STEAM Magnet School. STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics. The program focusses on problem based learning through the integration of all subjects. It promotes learning through activities, experiments and projects. Students are challenged to think critically and develop skills that they will carry with them long after they leave Clegg Elementary School. I am very excited that this school year we starting our partnership with Project Lead The Way which will greatly enhance our STEAM program here at Clegg!  PLTW provides transformative learning experiences for students and teachers.  It will provide a hands-on classroom environment and empower our students to develop in-demand knowledge and skills they will need to thrive in the classroom. 


Our goal is to encourage as many parents possible to become involved with our School Site Council, PTA and to volunteer either in or outside of the classroom. As you know, it takes a team of parents, teachers, and administrators to ensure the academic success of your child. Make sure to let your teacher or the office know if you are interested in volunteering.


I am looking forward to seeing and working with you all this school year!
