Summer Communication to Families

July 2022

Hello Clinton Families,

Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year.  We look forward to our Clinton Comets “Soaring to Success” this year.  Your support means the world to us and positively enhances our outstanding learning environment.

I am honored to be serving my seventh year as Principal of Clinton Elementary.  Prior to being Principal, I was the Assistant Principal and teacher at Clinton.  I just completed my 26th year at Clinton.  I love this school and the students and families we serve!  Our mission is: “High expectations for every child to succeed in our changing world.”  Our high-mission, dedicated staff members look forward to teaching your students each day.

This year we welcome our new Assistant Principal, Monique Ruiz to Clinton.  Mrs. Ruiz has been a teacher at McPhee Elementary for the past ten years.  We are also excited to have Dr. Amanda Ault as our Special Education Coordinator.  Dr. Ault was an instructional coach at Clinton last year and a teacher at Riley Elementary in previous years.

At Clinton, we honor the diversity and strengths of each student.  Our vision is for every student to achieve at high levels to become productive, successful citizens.   Through LPS Multi-tiered Systems of Support for Behavior (MTSS-B), our school is an orderly, productive learning environment.  Students follow the guidelines “Be safe, be respectful, be responsible” and “It’s never okay to be hurtful or disruptive.”  Our common area expectations and school-wide routines and procedures promote a positive, safe and orderly learning environment.  Our teachers are dedicated to planning and delivering engaging instruction to our Clinton scholars each day.  They collaborate with each other and celebrate student growth and success.

Enjoy the rest of your summer.  If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to call us at 402-436-1132.  We look forward to seeing everyone at Open House on Thursday, August 11 from 4:00 – 5:30.
