Principal's Message

  • Dear Families,

    On Wednesday evening, members of the Clark-Wilkins community came together to honor and celebrate Mrs. Liz Alexakos as she was presented with a Red Cross Everyday Hero Award at the Grappone Center in Concord, NH. Mrs. Alexakos received this award because of her selfless and caring spirit and the actions she took when she began The Give Tough Blood Drive, a blood drive that began to support Carter Mock, a CW student when he was diagnosed with a life-altering condition. This year will mark the fourth anniversary of this wonderful tradition, and we are hopeful that you will join members of our school community to give blood, giving the gift of life. The Red Cross Blood Drive is scheduled for Monday, May 13 from 2:00-7:00 PM. Please click on the link below to schedule a time to save a life.

    When students and teachers return to school on Monday, April 29th, we will begin our administration of the New Hampshire State Assessment System (SAS) in the areas of English/language arts and mathematics with our third and fourth graders. Our students in Kindergarten, grade one, and grade two will take their final administration of the computerized NWEA assessment in literacy and mathematics. All of these assessments will be administered, with make-ups included, through much of May. Field Day at both buildings will also be upon us before you know it and Mr. Donohue at Clark School and Mr. Holt at Wilkins School depend on a large number of volunteers to make both of these days resounding successes. If you enjoy outdoor activities, you will find Field Day right up your alley. The more hands at work, the merrier the day will be.

    May marks a month of many events: fourth graders will be visiting AMS, incoming Kindergarten students and their families will attend screenings and an information night, our visiting author and our “Celebration of Learning” will take place in late May, and our first graders will perform, under Mr. Allwarden’s direction, in the final music program of the year. When we return to school on April 29th, only thirty-one days will remain in the school year. How quickly time flies by!

    Best wishes for a fantastic break!
