Current Principal Communiqué

  • February 2020

    Dear Clemens Family,

    We are mid-way through the 3rd nine week period. The end of this grading period will be March 6th.

    As we work our way to the end of the third nine-week period, please continue discussions with your child about remaining focused on academics and attendance. Both are crucial to earning the credits necessary to move forward to the next year.

    Also, if your child is struggling to make adequate academic progress, please encourage him/her to reach out to teachers for tutorial opportunities. Teachers are available before or after school to support students with academic challenges.

    Lastly, the deadline to complete the Parent Satisfaction Survey has been extended to February 3rd. If you have not completed the survey, please take a minute to provide us with feedback.

    I hope you enjoy reading the February Parent Bulletin and discovering the amazing things are Buffs are doing!

    Have a great February!


    Missy Sosa
