Welcome back to Clarence Middle School for the 2017 – 2018 school year. Our teachers are anxious to greet their new students. The building has been cleaned thoroughly and all systems are go.
Much work was done during the summer break here at the middle school, but not the kind of work that is readily apparent. Miles of cable were strung through the ceilings in all parts of the school to improve wi-fi access and to establish video camera connections throughout the building. New servers were added to the building. At this point there should be no “dead zones” for the purposes of internet connection. A camera surveillance system has been added to enhance school safety and security. Rugs and old tiles were removed from many classrooms in the 8th grade wing and replaced with gleaming white floors. Both gymnasiums have resurfaced floors, and new lighting and backboards systems. Major work continues on the school pool with much of the plumbing and filters replaced and tile work to follow.
Of special note are some minor changes to this year’s Open House schedule. Each evening will start at 6:30 p.m. The meetings will occur as follows:
Grade 8 – Monday, September 11Grade 6 – Tuesday, September 12
Grade 7 – Wednesday, September 13
Please note that the altered order of the meetings with the 8th grade meeting first, followed by 6th and then 7th grade.
Despite the cool and wet weather this summer, I trust your sons and daughters have rested enough to feel recharged and excited about the new academic year. I’ll be glad to see to them in the coming weeks. Enjoy the waning days of summer.
As always, feel free to contact any of us to discuss any issues involving the school and its program.
