Evening session: Thursday, Oct. 26, 7:30-8:30 pm in the Clarke cafeteria
You have questions: we have answers! How does lunch work at Clarke? What is WIN block? How is the new LPS homework policy being implemented in middle school? How can students become involved in after-school clubs? Who should students and parents contact when they need help? These informative Q&A sessions with principal Anna Monaco are especially for parents who are new to Clarke (returning parents are also welcome). Come ready to ask questions! The morning and evening sessions will have the same format: attend whichever one is best for you.

Hurricane Harvey Relief 

Thank you from Principal Monaco – We are overwhelmed by your generosity. Jonas Clarke Middle School and the Clarke PTO would like to thank you for your incredible support for the Fred Roberts Middle School in Texas, a community severely impacted by Hurricane Harvey. Thanks to you, Clarke has collected over $5,500 in online, gift card and cash donations.

Quote from Principal Thomas who received the funds: “I am humbled by the generosity that your school community has demonstrated. The story that Clarke Middle School wrote is amazing. What your community has done for us will be forged in our story forever. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for being willing to help. Because of your school community’s kind donation, our school is planning to support three feeder schools that were also hit hard.”
