We are looking forward to welcoming Clarke parents and guardians to the building for our Back to School Night events next week. In order to accommodate the large number of attendees, Back to School Night is split into two events:

  • 6th grade Back to School Night –  Wednesday, September 28, 2022 / 6:30-8:00 PM
  • 7th & 8th grade Back to School Night  – Thursday, September 29, 2022 / 6:30-8:00 PM

On Tuesday, September 27, 2022, students will bring home a schedule for you to follow during the event.  If students are absent on the 27th, you may pick up a copy from the main office when you arrive for the evening event.  We will have extra copies available.

During the evening events, parents/guardians will be following a typical  “Day 1” schedule for their children, visiting some of the rooms and teachers they would see on that day.  Clarke teachers who teach multiple grade levels will be in attendance for one of the two evenings, but not for both. As a result, we have a few staffing conflicts that may or may not affect the schedule for attendees.  In some cases, a department representative will lead the class.  In other cases, an “OPEN” block will appear, allowing you to visit an alternate class or area of the school.

As a reminder, Back to School Night is an event intended for parents and guardians only. In addition, the evening is an opportunity for them to visit your child’s classrooms, meet the teachers, and get information about expectations and curriculum for the year.  They also may have a chance to meet some of the specialists who also work with your children.

Lastly, parking at Clarke may present a challenge; if possible, we ask that attendees walk or carpool to the event. Doors will open at 6:10, but attendees are welcome to arrive early and meet with other parents/guardians on our front patio if they wish.
