Each classroom teacher has a basket in order to collect items until Tuesday, December 18th. Please send any non-perishable food items or canned goods in with your child; this is a great way to help our Johnson County families who are in need this holiday season!
If you did not receive the 2-hour delay notification please make sure you have re enrolled your student in Synergy. Please call the office with any questions.

Reading for pleasure unlocks the power of information and imagination and helps children discover who they are. Here’s what you can do to help children develop stronger reading skills and a love for reading: • Set the example. Let children see you read. • Have a collection of books in your home. Update this collection routinely to keep up with changing tastes and reading skills. • Support our school’s Book Fair. Allow your children to choose their own books to read. Our Scholastic Book Fair is a reading event that brings the books kids want to read right into our school. It’s a wonderful selection of engaging and affordable books for every reading level. Please make plans to visit our Book Fair and be involved in shaping your child’s reading habits. Book Fair dates: September 17-20 Special activities: Family Learning Night and Book Fair – September 20 5:30-7:30 pm Dress as your favorite enchanted forest character for the photo booth.

Dear Families: On Tuesday, April 18, 2017, the Clark Pleasant Community School Corporation Board of School Trustees approved partnering with Honey Grove Educational Center to provide before and after school care programming for our CPCSC families. Honey Grove will replace our current provider, the YMCA. This will begin with the upcoming 2017-18 school year. The YMCA will continue to provide the before and after care for the remainder of this school year as well as 2017 summer camps. While we have been pleased with our partnership with the YMCA, we had the opportunity to save families significantly off their current monthly expense and offer a variable attendance punch pass system for before and after school care with this transition, while maintaining a similar level of service. Honey Grove currently provides quality before and after school programming at other elementary and middle schools in Johnson County and we are excited to announce this new partnership. We will provide additional information in the near future and rest assured that your children will continue to have before and after care and opportunities for camps during school breaks. Sincerely, Clark-Pleasant Schools
