“I am of the opinion that my life belongs to the whole community and as long as I live, it is my privilege to do for it whatever I can. I want to be thoroughly used up when I die, for the harder I work the more I live.”

 George Bernard Shaw


Word of the month is Persevere                              Tool of the month is Breathe


Hello Clarendon Families and Friends,


OPEN HOUSE – Any group or organization that is interested in reaching our community, please join us on September 26 from 6:00 to 7:00 PM. Other groups that will be attending are:  Clarendon’s PTO (Parent Teachers Organization); Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains; Cub Scouts; MRUUSD Board Member(s); The CES Intervention Team (activities); – Your organization??


The purpose of our Clarendon Community Complex and Walking Trail has been, from the very onset, a philosophy;

A message to children of all ages to live a healthy life; 

A life that is active, positive in thought and deed, and free of substances.


Phase One of the Clarendon Community Complex and Walking Trail is nearly complete.   It would not have been possible if not for the generous donations of Russ and Karen Edwards, Vermont Governor’s Council  on Physical Fitness & Sports, Carris Reels Inc., Donna Wilkins Photography, CES Parent Teacher Organization (PTO); and the volunteer work of Dave and Becky Chambers and Chambers Farm, Aaron and Allison Cota, Ron Fabian and Fabian Earth Moving, and Brian Hathaway.  There were many other volunteers that helped along the way, we thank them very much as well.


Speaking of the Clarendon Community Complex and Walking Trail, Aaron Cota and David Chambers (and helpers) finished the walking trail last Sunday.  Kevin, our super maintenance man, has put together our delivered workout stations.  We have so many people to thank for their support!  Our plan is to celebrate the first phase of the community complex by recognizing our CCC heroes before the Color Run.  If you can make it to our “Grand Opening” on Saturday, October 5th at 9:30 AM, that would be wonderful. 


Youth Cheering:  Anyone with a  child in 3rd -6th grade interested in being part of the Mill River Youth Cheer please attend the parents information meeting Monday September 30th at 6:00 pm at the gym at CES. If you are unable to attend and have an interest please email Carolyn Behrendt at silycb@gmail.com


Message from Coach Brett M:  We had a very nice game on Monday at Middletown Springs for our district 4th, 5th, and 6th grade soccer team.  We mounted quite a comeback, but fell short with a 4-3 loss. The boys and girls played their hearts out and are looking forward to playing the same team this Thursday at our home CES field.  Jake Richardson, Isaac Smith and Evan Corey had goals. Trenton Webster & Conner Myhre had assists. Jacob Richardson and Collin Mclean played fantastic in the goal for the team.


We could always use more parental supervision in the lunchroom and on the playground.  Would you like to volunteer for one or two days a month?  Please call the office or email Kristal or me.


CES has delayed starting our day outside until the walking trail is complete – we are nearly there.  Are you interested in walking the trail with our kids?  One day a week, two days a month?  Let us know and we will be happy to schedule you.

Welcome to Hannaford Helps Schools 2019!

This fall, we celebrate 20 years of the Hannaford Helps Schools program! Since the program’s inception, we’ve raised more than $12 million to help schools and school kids reach their goals. We appreciate your continued partnership!


Between 8/25 and 11/30, with the purchase of 4 participating Hannaford Helps Schools items, a customer will receive a printout for 3 School Dollars at the register. You can place that printout into your school’s slot in the Hannaford Helps Schools collection tower which is located at the front of the store that your school is registered with.


Customers who shop with Hannaford To Go can give their School Dollar printouts to the associate handling their groceries and let them know which school slot to put them in.


This year, Hannaford will also donate $1,000 to the highest earning school per store.
