The Clintonville Elementary School Community is dedicated to encouraging our students to become lifelong learners who respect themselves and are sensitive to the differences of others. Through the arts and physical education, students will develop, appreciate, and express their own individuality and creativity. By promoting critical thinking, responsibility, and self-sufficiency, students will become active citizens of our community. Together, we will not only make a difference in everyone's day but make a difference in everyone's life.
It is a privilege to be your principal. Please contact me with any concerns, comments or suggestions.

Helpful Parent Tips:
Please make sure your children arrive to school on time every day. The school day begins at 8:30 and ends at 3:02.
Please help your child achieve a full day's attendance throughout the year. If they aren't in class, they are missing instruction.
Be sure they are well rested and have had a healthy breakfast and bring a healthy snack.
Check backpacks each evening for notices and assignments. Arrange for them to complete their own homework in a designated area.
Read with and to your children nightly when possible.
Be a role model. You are your child's first teacher. They watch how you respond to situations and they will imitate that.
