The Clinton PTA Gets Things Done

The Clinton School PTA prides itself on being a committed, proactive, and creative force. We work rigorously to provide valuable resources and services to Clinton students, parents, and staff, and we are dedicated to reaching every family in our wonderfully diverse community. Whether we are volunteering in classrooms and at school events, fundraising, creating enriching programs for our students, maintaining an awesome cultural arts assembly program, purchasing items‚ both big and small, or advocating for our school, our students, and our staff, our work has a major impact on many aspects of the Clinton School experience.

When we see an opportunity, we take it. When we identify a need, we satisfy it. Here are just a few examples:

  • We take advantage of all kinds of ways to enrich the learning experience for Clinton students, such as hiring a Garden Educator to teach students using our school gardens, filling the school year with diverse cultural experiences through assemblies and artist-in-residence experiences, and supporting field trips for all grades within the school.
  • Our auditorium was in desperate need of updating and we raised $30,000 to undertake a complete audio-visual renovation and to install new lighting throughout.
  • Clinton School needed new playground equipment and the PTA raised $25,000 for brand new state-of-the-art equipment that will entertain and challenge students of all ages.
  • We wanted to do a better job of communicating with our non-English speaking families, so we wrote and received a translation grant and instituted a bi-monthly newsletter for our Haitian Creole and Spanish-speaking families.
  • To assist our teachers/students in the school district’s technology initiative, the PTA purchased MacBooks and iTouches to pilot a learning-centered technology program in our 3rd grade.
  • Clinton School is a warm and inviting neighborhood school, with a committed faculty and staff, and a spirited, active, and talented parent community. Please join us as we continue to work hard for our school and our children. Join the PTA, volunteer at a PTA-sponsored program or event, spend an hour helping out in the library or the art room, pick one of our annual fundraising campaigns and go crazy with it, communicate your ideas to the PTA Board, become a class parent, and most importantly, let your child see first-hand the importance of getting involved and making our school (and our world) a better place.
