Culture Night 
We have begun preparations for our Annual Culture Night on January 25th from 5:30-7:30.  This is always a huge event that celebrates the many cultures represented in our building and community. The event includes a fashion show, food tasting, cultural gallery walk, dance and other presentations.  The culture that you choose to share about can be your own family culture or the culture of someplace that you have traveled.

This event can not happen without your participation, so please consider sharing your gifts and experiences.  We are lucky to have such a diverse community and this is one way we can celebrate!  Please join us!

We are looking for your help for CRE Culture Night.


Our school Culture Night committee has started planning for this wonderful event. In addition to the programs that we will offer that night, this year we would like to invite all the students who speak a language other than English or who are from an ethnic heritage to film a short clip for 3 to 5 minutes.

When your child is absent from school
Please call the Clover Ridge Office when your child will be absent from school.  It is very important for us to have each child accounted for.  It is greatly appreciated when a parent/guardian calls the office to let us know when your child will be absent.  Thank you for your help!

Parking Lot Procedures Reminder  
With over 100 cars and multiple pedestrians that use the parking lot and enter in the front of the building, the safety of our students, staff, and community members continues to be a priority.  The attached letter was handed to each car that exited the parking lot before winter break.  Please review it for guidelines that will help to make drop off effective, efficient, and safe.  Thank you for your assistance!

Reminder: School BEGINS at 8:00 so all students should be entering the building by 7:50.
