Dear St. Clement’s School Community:
The fall semester is now behind us. The end of 2017 was filled with exciting events showcasing our students' talents. On November 29th, our orchestra and choir, under the direction of Ms. Ida Steadman and Ms. Robyn Pelking packed the house for their Christmas concert. The house was packed again on December 5th for the Lower School concert under the direction of Ms. Mahrla Manning. On the 14th our kinder program hosted "Dinner Around the World". On December 14, 15, and 16th our eighth grade speech and drama class, under the direction of Ms. Robyn Pelking, entertained us with their dinner theater production of "Singin' in the Sun". Rounding out 2017, the December 19th Pre-Kinder Nativity Chapel and December 20th Lessons and Carols Chapel were beautiful Christmas services for our students and families. It has been a blessing to share in our students' activities.
We are excited for the start of the spring semester. I will continue hosting a parent coffee each month to listen to our parents and share information. My student advisory council will also continue to meet. Our student representatives have brought forth several excellent suggestions, several of which we implemented before Christmas break. We now have a new electronic marquee on Yandell that scrolls important information for the school. New shade coverings have been installed in the playground area to protect our students on hot, sunny days. Finally, we have just launched a one-semester “Foundations of Geometry” elective class which is open to seventh and eighth grade students. Starting during the 2018-2019 school year we will add a Geometry course for high school credit. The class offers one more opportunity for our students to excel in middle school and prepare for the start of their high school experience.
We are here to support you and your children. I am always available to answer any question or concern you may have. Do not hesitate to either call or come in to see me.
Dr. John T. Roskosky
Head of School
