READ ACROSS AMERICA DAY - MARCH 2, 2017
On Monday, February 13th, retired teacher, Karle Warren, along with third grade students from Heights Elementary, recited the Read Across America Oath with the District's Board of Directors.
National Education Association's Read Across America Day, which
celebrates Dr. Seuss's birthday and the joys of reading, expects more
than 45 million readers, both young and old, to pick up a book and
read. Please help show our children the joy of reading and build a
nation of readers on March 2, and every day!

District is changing their enrollment practices to require all students
to have proof of a physical address within the Clarkston School
District. This change was made to get on level with most other school

2017-2018 school year which starts now with the yearly registration
Any new student to the district will be required to verify residency
prior to being enrolled. Acceptable forms of proof of residency include a
utility bill, lease agreement, or other documentation that you live at
an address in our school district. Current students will need to provide
proof of a physical address during the registration process.
Registration is open now through March 3, at your local school. Please
remember to bring your proof of residency when turning in your forms.
