Welcome to a New School Year!
At Clarkston Elementary, our Stories of Learning matter. We will work to find our voices so we can inspire others to find theirs. We will take full advantage of our abilities and opportunities to be leaders who think deeply about life and learning. We will utilize our passions, grit and growth mindsets to be thoughtful leaders who connect with the world around us.
This time of year, it's easy to be distracted with the things that demand our attention. Seven hours on the road yesterday reminded me that the things that bring us the most joy are the relationships in our lives and those who we are fortunate to know and celebrate.
All schools (including Early Childhood Education) are closed today, Monday, November 26, due to dangerous driving conditions this morning and predicted deteriorating conditions throughout the day. All afternoon and evening activities for Monday are canceled as well, unless otherwise indicated.

Clarkston for Life and Clarkston Community Schools invite the community to join us as we continue the conversation about anxiety that we began with the screening of the documentary Angst in October.

We will also share a storehouse of local resources with attendees. This is just the beginning!
We invite you to share your thoughts, ideas, and hopes for Clarkston Community Schools at a moderated Community Conversation at the district Board Office on November 13 or December 12.
