Welcome back!

Welcome back, Clarkdale families and staff! We’re off to a great start for the 2014-2015 school year! I hope you all enjoyed your summer and are refreshed and ready to be champions for our students.

I’m very excited about this year for the PTA. There will be lots of changes this year and lots of new faces on the board. We’ll be bringing back some of your favorite events from last year, like Movie Night, and adding new ones, such as International Night and a community outreach service project this spring. Our first event will be on September 9th with a general PTA meeting followed by Open House, so be sure to join us then!

Our first big fundraiser will be this fall with our very popular (and yummy!) Otis Spunkmeyer cookie dough sale. Our goal is to raise enough money over this school year to send each grade on a field trip of their choice next year, including an overnight trip for our fifth graders. We can't accomplish this without YOU! Look for more information this fall!

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me any time. Our email is You can also leave a message at the school: 770-919-2422 ext. 76.

Have a great year!
