Preparing for the 2017-2018 School Year
The summer continues to fly by and we are greatly looking forward to launching the 2017-2018 school year! Two separate mailings went out on Monday, August 21, to our incoming students and families. One included bus passes. The other included information regarding students' class placements and other important content. If you have questions about any information, please contact our Main Office at 856-241-1552 ext.3000.
The Clifford School's Open House & Orientation will be held on Friday, September 1. Families will hear a brief welcome message from the superintendent and principal before going to see their classrooms and meet the staff members. After visiting their classrooms, students are also welcome to visit the school buses that will be located in the parking lot and parents may assist them in demonstrating how to properly wear the seatbelts. This time is intended to ease the anxiety of our young learners (and our parents!) and build confidence for the first day of school on September 5.
The times for the Open House & Orientation on September 1 are as follows:
10:30-11:00 will be AM Preschool & Kindergarten classes of DiTonno, Meddick, Hannold/Pace, Rooney (Klitchko), Bitterman, and Morgan
11:15-11:45 will be PM & Full-day Preschool & Kindergarten classes of Cicchini, Sermabeikian/Maholik, Moore, Rosas, and Taylor
If you do attend the Open House, please bring the Dismissal Procedure Form (describing how your child will be dismissed for the 2017-2018 school year) as well as the sheet that specifically lists the dismissal procedures for September 5-15 (do NOT cut apart the strips on this form). Bins will be available upon arrival at the Open House in which to place both forms. If you will not be attending the Open House, please return the forms to the Clifford Main Office prior to this date.
Also, please mark your calendars for our Back to School Night on Tuesday, September 12, from 6:30-8:00pm. Please note that this is an adult-only event and we kindly ask that childcare arrangements be made in advance.
We are greatly looking forward to seeing all Clifford students and working with them this year to go, "To infinity and beyond!!!"
Continue to enjoy your summer :)
