Principal's Corner

Dear Parents and Friends of St. Clare School,

Happy New Year! I hope your holidays were filled with family and friends, peace and joy, adventure and rest. May the year ahead be filled with blessings!

Over the break, new windows were installed in the seventh grade and sixth grade homeroom classrooms. Many thanks to Mike Clark and the Clark Foundation for their generous gifts, which made this much-needed improvement possible.

Additionally, new lighting was installed in the gym. My sincere thanks to Kieran O’Brien and Current Electrical for their support in providing us with a “light and bright” gym.

Even though he was supposed to be on vacation, John McCracken spent many a day at school over the break to oversee these projects. Thank you, John! What would we do without you?

January is filled with events and activities. We look forward to the Geography Bee, the beginning of Drama Club rehearsals, mid-year STAR assessments, Book Club, visits to OMSI and the Oregon Children’s Theater, time with our preschool and Providence friends, family groups, and a kindergarten cooking experience. The month will end with our annual Open House on Sunday, January 28, from noon-2:00pm, and Catholic Schools Week. We look forward to these busy days!
