First, we'll list general announcements that are for everyone!
Then below, we list announcements specific to each campus - for instance PIZZA DAY!
Parents, Reminder of Tech Policy
Please remind your children of the behavior agreement they signed at the beginning of the semester and what is expected of them while on campus.

Especially remind them that there should be no earbuds, headphones, or phones are allowed except for in their study hall time. Even then, they are not to share their devices.
Clarkston Community Schools Mentors
For those using Clarkston Funding:

We are so pleased with how Count went this first week with our new CCS mentors! The Clarkston Community School mentors' desire is to become a resource to our students and families. Have you had a chance to talk to them on the phone or on campus yet? If so, you will notice their earnest desire is to help. Your children will have weekly opportunities to connect with the campus mentors over the count month. We are excited to have such a great team of mentors meeting with our students!

Questions the mentors are asking the students on Count Days
  • What is your favorite class?  
  • What are you learning in that class right now?  
  • Can you tell me one thing you are working on this week?

What is Count?
Count is how Clarkston Community Schools counts attendance for Homeschool Connections students. It is a series of two-way content specific interaction with students and CCS Mentors.

Please arrive 5 - 10 minutes early to meet with a CCS Mentor.
