Principal's Message

  • Dear Families,

    While only sixteen days are remaining in our current academic year, there will still be plenty of instruction, some assessments, and many special activities. On Monday, May 20th, author ­­­­­Marty Kelley will be visiting Clark-Wilkins School as part of our “Celebration of Learning.” On that date, all Kindergarten students will join us at Wilkins School for a special presentation by Mr. Kelley. Kindergarten students will walk to Wilkins for the program following the regular drop-off procedure at Clark.

    Despite our best efforts, the number of clothing items in our “Lost & Found” areas in both buildings continues to “multiply.” If you have the opportunity to check things out for yourselves, you may be amazed at the treasures you might locate. Mrs. Cordts recently decluttered and organized the items in our “Lost and Found” areas, and it has never been so easy to take a quick peek to claim what is yours. After the school year ends, any clothing items that remain in “Lost & Found” will be donated to Goodwill or the Salvation Army.

    Earlier this week, Clark-Wilkins hosted the Fourth Annual Give Tough American Red Cross Blood Drive. A staggering 77 units of blood were donated, saving a whopping 231 lives! The Amherst and Clark-Wilkins communities have once again shown great care, compassion, and selflessness we came together to donate the gift of life and celebrate the memory of Carter Mock. Thank you to everyone for the contributions of time, delicious snacks and treats, and of course to the staff that organizes and supports this event each year. It takes a village.
