This is a BIG year for Clover Ridge! Many new faces will be joining our community of learners and we couldn't be more excited! More than 450 students will be experiencing Clover Ridge for the very first time. We have hosted some events to help with that transition last spring and have additional upcoming events that will help as well.
Please note that Back to School letters will be sent the week of August 14th with important information regarding the year including class placement, important forms to be completed, and useful information.

School Supplies
The Clover Ridge School Supply List can be found on our website under NEWS or OUR School. There is also a program offering support for back to school supplies through Love INC. Please see flier for details.
In addition to individual student supplies, community supplies for the classrooms are needed. Several years ago, our district asked that we remove general supplies from each student's supply list.  Unfortunately, this has created a need for additional supplies.  These are supplies that teachers use throughout the year.  Please consider sending some of the following supplies to your child's homeroom teacher: tissues, Clorox Wipes, paper plates, Zip Lock Bags (gallon/quart/sandwich), plastic utensils, and paper towels.  Your participation is completely optional.  Thanks for your consideration and generosity.

Parent Teacher Organization (PTO)
We have a very strong and active Parent Teacher Organization at Clover Ridge! They plan fantastic family activities and raise money that directly supports your child's educational experience. Historically, they have financially supported technology initiatives, field trips, personalized learning initiatives, and supplies that teachers couldn't otherwise afford. Your child benefits directly from the work that the PTO does,  but it takes the time and talents of parents to make it all possible. Your support and active participation is needed! Please see the attachment for opportunities and areas of interest! We would be happy to get you connected and involved!
