Principal's Message

Dear Families and Colleagues,

I hope this message finds everyone recovered from the effects of our recent March storm. Icy walk-ways and high mounds of snow have become the norm this week. Many of us have certainly reached our limits for shoveling, snow-blowing, and plowing, while the vast majority of children continue to love playing in the snow and can never seem to get enough of it. Before you know it, green grass, perennials, and budding leaves will dot the landscape and the snow will be a distant memory. As we wrap up the month of March please note that second trimester report cards will go home with all students on Friday, March 24th, and that recent NWEA results will also be included in the report card envelopes of all students in grades Kindergarten through four.

The Amherst PTA is holding the “Sportin’ the Sports Night”, targeted towards sons and their invited guests, in the Wilkins School multi-purpose room on Saturday, April 1st, so please mark that date and event on your calendars. Given that this date coincides with April Fools’ Day, I wonder what surprises the night might hold. Like the Daughter’s Choice event, the focus of this event is to bring children, family, and friends together to enjoy some fun. 

The deadline for interested applicants to apply for the position of Associate Principal at Clark-Wilkins School is Tuesday, March 21st, and shortly thereafter all members of the Round One Interview Committee will review applications and make decisions about which candidates to bring forward for interviews. From that stage of the process, the committee hopes to recommend selected candidates to move on to Round Two, which would require candidates to visit Clark-Wilkins in addition to having members of the interview team visit the “current schools” of the finalists. Ideally, we hope to have a candidate in place by July 1, 2017, so that the associate principal can become a full member of the Clark-Wilkins School community for the entire upcoming school year.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day,

Gerry St. Amand
