“Normality is a paved road: It’s comfortable to walk, but no flowers grow on it.” 

Vincent van Gogh, artist

Hello Clarendon Families and Friends,

Thank you for your kindness to our staff as we all work out the kinks and get this program started.  It means a lot to all of us that you are understanding and patient as we work to get everyone up and running.  Please continue communicating with your teacher and all of the team so that we can ensure you are all getting what you need.  The routine should help tremendously.

The entire staff gets and deserves a big thank you, from me, for the hard work in preparing for and implementing our remote model.  It has been a challenge at times and is much easier with the help of our partners at home.  24/7 seemed to be the norm for a little while. Everyone, please enjoy the weekend!!!

As we all navigate this “anything but normal” time, I happened upon this quote from Vincent van Gogh and it made me think about our opportunities.  Yes, the paved road is easy, comfortable and familiar – However, we now have a chance to grow flowers.  Together, we will be perfecting our remote learning which will enhance the independent skills and self-motivation of our kids. This will be needed, very much so, in the working world of the future.  Our children will be the beneficiaries of this unusual time as they grow their own individual flowers and make this world a better place for all of us.  With the help of our learners, let us ALL come together today, Patriots Day, in peace and with pride.

A reminder to all of our bus riders now and in the future.  We must screen all of our riders (children and adults) and deny entry to those that may be ill.  That means that our children will have to return home immediately.  Please stay with your young children until they are cleared to board the bus.  Thank you!

Clarendon Elementary PTO – Family Scavenger Hunt

Welcome Back Clarendon Coyotes! Your PTO has missed you all! With the Color Run unable to happen this year, we decided to have the same fun, but a little differently! Introducing the CES Family Scavenger Hunt!  Oh, there will be prizes!!  For the winners – gift certificates to Phoenix books, Vermont truffle company, Wonderfeet, and more!  See attached for details. 

If we love our country, we should also love our countrymen.” Ronald Reagan

Messages from our community:

The Clarendon Girl Scout Troop has been together for over five years.  They have done a lot of community service and continue to help our neighbors.  They are most excited about their recent donation of a little free library to CES. “Although we weren’t able to build it together as planned, a local carpenter built it for the girls to stain themselves. It comes at a perfect time with remote learning, and the Troop hopes that students enjoy the library to exchange books with each other.”   See more here

A note from Ian Akin (one of our community members):  We are pleased to announce that the Mill River United Soccer program will return again this year. There will be protocols in place to ensure, to the best of our ability, the safety of all participants.  All of the information you will need regarding registration, training schedules and protocols is outlined in the “MRUN Registration & Safe Return to Play” attachment.   Please do not hesitate to contact me directly at imxfc1@gmail.com or by calling 802-353-2729. We look forward to making the most out of our opportunity to return to the game in a safe and responsible manner.  Sincerely, Ian Akin
