Principal’s Message

 

Welcome to the 2019-2020 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.

We are all very excited about moving into our seventh 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 about the opportunities this has brought, and will bring for all of our students. The program is offered to all students enrolled at Clegg grades K-5.

Parents will continue to be informed of their child’s achievement through parent/teacher conferences, progress reports and report cards. At any time during the school year parents may request information regarding their child’s progress. Please note the following parent/teacher conference dates:

Trimester #1-     October 14-18, 2019

Trimester #2-     March 26-27, 2020 for “At Risk Students”

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 on campus.

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