Volunteers Needed
We need some help to ensure that our Back-To-School Events are a wonderful success!  Please consider sharing some time with us! We understand it is also important to share these events with your families, so if you can stagger your time between both attending the event, and helping out, we would be very appreciative!

Kindergarten & 1st Grade Assessment Days (Sept. 4&5)
On Sept. 4 and 5, students in kindergarten and grade 1 will not have a full day of school but will meet their teachers for an assessment conference. Teacher assignments were shared in back-to-school information from our school. An online sign-up for assessment conferences also was part of our back-to-school communication. If you still need information about where to sign up for a conference, please contact the main office.
 
Remember the first day of school for kindergarten and grade 1 is Sept. 6.

Sign-Up Links are posted in the back to school letter.  

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! 
 
CRE Spirit Wear
Our PTO has generously offered to provide a free Clover Ridge T-Shirt to all new students!  This includes all Kindergartners and students new to the building.

Similar t-shirts will be for sale in the school store during building events for those students interested and who have outgrown last year's shirt.

If your shirt is in good condition, but no longer fits, we will be collecting them in the office for students in need.

CRE Apparel will also be available for sale in the school store.

Show your CRE Pride!
