Professional Day at Clinton -May 13, 2016
Clinton teachers took a closer look at how big ideas flows from primary to intermediate grades. This day together helped us feel more comfortable and familiar with the curriculum itself and understand how skills, strategies and processes transfer and build through all grade levels.
Important Message: Burnaby Schools Summer Session 2016
Thank you for your interest in Burnaby Schools for your child’s summer learning experience. We will be resuming registration this Thursday, May 5, with a staggered schedule dependent on the grade your child will be entering in September 2016. Courses for other grades will not be available until the scheduled date (next week)
Please see the front page of the District website for the dates scheduled to register your child.
Caring for the environment is a community goal at Clinton School. Over the past few years we have promoted environmentally friendly practices which have included the three “R’s” – reduce, reuse and recycle. Keeping in line with this philosophy, Clinton is now implementing the next stage of the process.
The staff at Clinton is encouraging families to pack a “litterless lunch” at least three days a week. Our ultimate goal is to implement the program on a full time basis by mid-April culminating in an Earth Day celebration. The purpose of this initiative is to reduce the amount of garbage collected at the school (i.e. plastic wrap, foil, wrappers, pizza boxes, etc.).
Some suggestions for packing a “litterless lunch” include cut up fruit and/or vegetables, cheese sticks, crackers, granola bars, etc. in a reusable container with a thermos of juice or water which can be quickly washed out a home.
Please note, Clinton will no longer be recycling juice boxes. As a result students will be asked to drink or empty their packets before bringing them home at the end of the day.
Taking care of our environment is a community affair. The Clinton staff would like to thank the parents for all of the support they have provided in helping our school become a more environmentally friendly place to be!
