September 13, 2014

The arrangements for Carson Perry have been finalized.  The family has announced that visitation will occur on Monday,  beginning at 4pm.  The funeral will be held on Tuesday,  at 11am.  Both the visitation and the funeral will occur at the Cicero Christian Church in Cicero, Indiana.  

Students intending to attend the funeral on Tuesday, are welcome to go and those absences shall be exempted (not count toward their total number of absences allowed).  Please contact your childs school office to report that absence to the office as you normally would. In situations like these, it is imperative for the students to be involved in their normal routines as much as possible.  To that end, we will run our normal schedules, routines, and after-school activities.  

All of us at Clinton Central School Corporation wish to extend our heartfelt thanks to all of those individuals who provided services to our students and staff on Friday.  Counselors from our high school, Frankfort, Rossville, Clinton Prairie, Western, Carroll, as well as Cummins Behavioral Health Services all helped our students and staff  get through a very difficult day.  In addition, several pastors from local churches were in the buildings helping as well.  

In the coming days, we will continue to have extra counselors from Cummins Behavioral Health Services at the elementary school.  As on Friday, if as a parent you do not want your children to work with our counselors, please contact our office at 249-2515.

Thank you for all of your support during these difficult days.

Sincerely,

Dr. Jeff Studebaker

Bulldog Award

We will be awarding "Bulldog Awards" again this year to those students that demonstrate one of our 'life skills'. The 'life skills' were introduced to our students as a part of C.L.A.S.S. and we are continuing to emphasize them. They are clearly visible throughout the building. If your child receives a "Bulldog Award" you will be receiving a positive phone call and the award will be posted outside the office throughout the school year.

Summer Reading



Dear Clinton Central Elementary Parents,

    Our elementary teachers and students have worked very hard all year; your children are leaving school this year as better readers and writers. As you know, good readers and writers read and write DAILY. Recent brain research shows us that practice is necessary in order to master strategies that are critical to the success of the reading and writing process. The more students read the more proficient they become at reading and writing. Summer is a great time to read to your children! It is also a wonderful time of year for students to read books for pleasure and to nurture a love for reading.

    Reading aloud to our children also has tremendous educational benefits and can be a source of much enjoyment for students and parents. We strongly encourage parents to read aloud daily to and with their children. Read-alouds are not only enjoyable for beginning readers but they are just as essential for students in the middle grades. Reading comprehension improves as students listen to and discuss events, characters, and motivation. They learn to predict what will happen and they increase their vocabulary. In addition, the read-aloud time generates further interest in books. There are a wide variety of high quality read aloud materials available at our local bookstores and the Michigantown, Kirklin, and Frankfort Libraries.

    Your support in promoting literacy skills is especially critical during the elementary years. It is recommended that students continue to write and reflect on their readings in a summer journal or diary as often as possible. A specific list of suggested summer reading activities is included. We hope that you and your child have a wonderful time enjoying many great books this summer!

Happy reading!

Mr. McKinney

Mrs. Cripe
