At Clark Elementary We Strive to Reach for the Stars

Clark Elementary School has a tradition of 75 years of "Excellence in Education." Our faculty and staff strive to provide the best possible educational environment for each of our students.

We strongly believe that the result of our students' success is a combination of interactions among the school's teachers, staff, parents, and community. Clark School is fortunate to have all of these in place, with support from our parents, an active PTO, Kid's Company I, and the many companies and individuals throughout our community

Tilghman football players (l to r) Elliot Bickerstaff, Darrius Spivey-Nunn, Tre Coleman, and Jordan Tyler celebrated with Karen Armstrong's fourth grade class on November 4. Mrs. Armstrong's class was winner of a pizza party with the football team after they raised the largest contribution of any class in the district for "Change for a Cure", a breast cancer awareness fundraiser.   

All the money collected during "Change for a Cure" will be added to the donation to the Susan G. Komen Foundation on behalf of the Tilghman Football Team.

Mrs. LeNeave's second grade had language arts and math centers related to pumpkins.  Students had a blast measuring pumpkins and guessing the names of some very unusual looking pumpkins, squash, and gourds!

Fourth Grader’s Generosity Boosts Breast Cancer Coin Drive Contribution
Two donations by Clark Elementary fourth grader Ella Wainscott have led her classmates to follow her example.

Karen Armstrong, Ella’s homeroom teacher, said the first donation was made to help a fellow student with the fee for the Brandon Spring field trip that was taken by the fourth grade in September.

“I had some birthday money that I was using to pay for the trip, so I paid my fee, and then Mrs. Armstrong used what was left over to help another student who needed some help so they could go on the trip,” said Wainscott.

A second donation came shortly thereafter when the Tilghman football team began a coin drive in support of breast cancer research.  Ella found out that one of her favorite teachers at Clark had breast cancer and was having surgery at about the same time. Ella was inspired to support the coin drive, so she raided her piggy bank and donated $26.

“I usually save my birthday money to see if there’s anything else I want, but I would do it again because I really like helping people,” Wainscott said.

After Ella's donation inspired her classmates to bring donations, and the class ultimately gave over $100 to PT Football Coins for Breast Cancer.

“Ella has been a role model to all my students all year long,” said Armstrong. “And she continued to lead by making this donation in honor of a teacher that was dear to her. I’m very proud.”
