Breagha Kilpatrick won the county and regional Soil & Water Competition and will be competing at the State level.


We are so proud of you!


Happy Spring!! It is hard to believe that we are in the final weeks of this school year. It is our goal that all Ronda Clingman Students show growth, experience success, and end their school year strong. This is possible when we all work as a team for the benefit of the children. I observe teachers teaching, students learning, and parent involvement on a daily basis. This is why our Ronda Clingman students are so successful in so many different ways academically and socially. It truly is the BEST school in the WORLD.  Let us continue to work as a team and make this the best year yet.


Some of the ways to help your child be successful  and confident in school is to make sure homework is completed every night, encourage your child to read at least 20 minutes nightly, ask questions, have conversations about their hopes and dreams, and set attainable goals.  Children need plenty of sleep and to arrive to school on time in order to feel alert and ready to learn.


With everyone  working together, I have no doubt that our students will learn, build self-confidence, and show tremendous growth this school year.


A few gentle reminders:

        Please have your child/children’s name tags visible when picking your child up in car line. If you need more tags, please let the office know.
        If your child is going home with another parent, we need a note giving permission from you and the other parent that is picking up your child.
        For safety, please stay in carline. Do not pass other cars while car line is dismissing students.
        If you are volunteering, visiting, or have a scheduled meeting, you will need to sign in at the office for a visitor pass.

Thank you for all you do!
