Congratulations, Clinton Science Olympiad team!
Dear Clinton Parents,
It is with a heavy heart that I inform all of you that this year will be my last as your principal of our school. It has truly been an honor and a privilege to be a part of this community for the past nine years and I will always have a special place in my heart for the staff and students of this wonderful school. I cannot thank you the parents enough for your support and for trusting us with educating your beloved children. This is something I never took for granted and I feel blessed to have called Clinton home for so many years.
Over my time at Clinton, the staff has made great strides in regard to educating the entire child and this will continue on next school year. The new principal, Beth Cusimano, is coming to Clinton after twelve years at Eisenhower Elementary and I am certain that she will continue to keep our school charting in the right direction. In addition, our current Assistant Principal Mrs. Jean Camp, will be here to support the transition to Ms. Cusimano. As for me, I have been named the new principal of Riverdale Elementary and I look forward to doing the best I can for the staff, students, and parents there.
Once again, I cannot thank all of you enough for such an amazing and successful nine years and I look forward to hearing about all of the progress the students will continue to make over the years to come.
Welcome to Clinton Elementary School where we face our academic endeavors as a united community!
Clinton provides all students with support to reach high academic standards. Students engage in innovative technology use as part of daily instruction, with a Chromebook or iPad for all second through sixth grade students. Clinton has launched a variety of after school programs to enhance students' educational experience. Our Boys & Girls Club is as active as ever, commencing everyday after classes. Intervention is offered by credentialed teachers before or after school to help all students succeed. Students receive extra support with math fluency and literacy skills during intervention sessions. Clinton Elementary School students take advantage of free after-school programs in math and reading, academic support for English learners, computer coding, and folklorico dance.
Clinton Elementary School’s robust College Mentoring Program pairs elementary students with college students who serve as positive role models, provide help with school work, and promote positive self-esteem. Clinton is the first Garden Grove elementary school to launch a Friday Night Live program, providing students with a variety of exciting leadership opportunities. Clinton offers the award-winning Orange County GRIP program. This unique partnership with law enforcement provides tutoring, counseling, mentoring, scholarship incentives, and field trip incentives.
Our school is proud of our active PTO and all the work they do for our 560 students. Our hard working parents have helped organize ELAC meetings with assistance from the OC Grip program. They will work together this school year to coordinate several exciting events.
As a school, we send a warm welcome to all students and families. We hope to have a productive and marvelous school year together!
