We Want to Hear From You
The online survey “grades” various areas of the school district, providing insights into what residents think about the district’s strengths, challenges and priorities.
“This survey will give us an opportunity to hear from our patrons their opinions’ about our performance, and what our priorities should be for the future,” said Destry Brown, Superintendent.
The entire survey should take no more than five minutes to complete, but please be certain to set aside enough time to finish the survey before you begin. If you exit the survey in the middle, you will not be able to return later.
Community members can access the survey at this link.
If patrons do not have access to a computer to complete the survey, the school district has printed surveys available in the district’s administrative offices, 701 S 8th Street. Please stop by during school district business hours, 7:30 am to 4:30 pm. to complete a survey.
Responses are limited to one per device (smartphone, tablet, computer, etc.). The surveys are being tabulated by a third-party firm from Kansas City and all responses go directly to them. The district will receive a summary report but will not see any individual responses.
“We really want to hear from you,” said Destry Brown. “Please access the survey link and let us know what you think.”
The survey will close February, 6th.
Literature Knows No Boundaries
How do 7th graders in Mrs. Hetherington's ELA class make a scene from a recent literature study come to life? By becoming actors and actresses of course!
To better understand the characters and the events that influenced their actions in the novel, "Fever 1793", students took on the part of the book's characters in a recent class play.
CTS Welcomes New Nursing Students
Clinton Technical School recently welcomed a new cohort of Practical Nursing students.
These students will spend 4 days in the classroom through May. Starting in May the students will then have the opportunity to apply their knowledge and skills through a clinical rotation schedule. Students will graduate in December of 2019.
We are very excited that these students have chosen to begin their nursing journey with us.
Makerspace Coming to Henry Elementary
Students at Henry Elementary are excited for their new STEM items that have been purchased with Walmart and Donors Choose grants.
These items will be part of the school's new Makerspace classroom. This classroom will be a collaborative place where students will engage in hands-on activities that focus on science, technology, engineering, art and math.
7th Grade Inventors
Creativity, imagination, critical thinking and problem solving.....all 21st Century Skills that students in Mr. Shomaker's 7th grade social studies class are being given the opportunity to practice.
Students are taking part in the "2019 Colonial Invention Convention" in which they are thinking outside the box to develop solutions to historical problems.
Student inventions included: A plate laid down before planting tobacco that the plant would grow through with an automated blade to cut the stalks quickly and a pedal-powered wheat thresher. To increase farmable land in New England, students created a push-powered rock remover as well as many steam-powered rock-removing contraptions. Students also created gunpowder-powered fish net launchers, steam-powered wheels attached to boats to collect fish while sailing, and an actual, working (and nice smelling!) mosquito repellant to try and eradicate the threat of Yellow Fever.
