Principal's Message

Principal's Message

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Welcome back to school!  I am the new principal at Clinton School and am looking forward to meeting you!  After students head to class at 8:00 AM, please stop into the multi-purpose room to say hello and have a doughnut and coffee with me.

We have a special schedule for just the first day, that I wanted to share with you:

7:40 – 8:00    School opens.  Parents are invited to come to the blacktop with students.  There will be first day of school  photo opportunities, music, our Chloe the Cougar, and all teachers and staff will be available to say hello.  Walter Muneton, our Board President, will also be there.  

Once parents have had a chance to take pictures and visit, students will line-up on their classroom number, which is painted on the black top.  Teachers will take students to class at 8:00.

For Parents of TK and Kindergarten Students only:  TK and K students will be dropped off at the entrance of their classroom, instead of on the blacktop.  Feel free to first walk around the blacktop and use the photo opportunity, “First Day of Kindergarten” backdrop or the other backdrop with props, before dropping off your child at the entrance of his or her classroom.  

8:00 - Students will go with their teachers to their classrooms.  Parents will leave the blacktop at this time.  

8:05 - Meet and Greet with the Principal - Coffee and doughnuts will be served in the MPR.    

The entire staff and I are looking forward to seeing you tomorrow!

Our School

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!
