C-Red student Alexander Schild participated in the 2015 Destination Imagination regional and state tournaments in March. The goal of Destination Imagination is to give students the chance to learn and experience the creative process while competing against other teams across the region with the chance of advancing to state tournaments. Alex's team chose a service learning project called "Brand Aid" in which his team was to use the creative process to identify, design and carry out a project that addresses a real community need. They were also directed to use graphic arts and sound to create an effective brand and present a live presentation that highlighted the project.
Clark High School is proud to announce that our students will have the opportunity to play interscholastic sports beginning in September 2015! We have been approved as members of the Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association and have worked closely with Sean McInnis, Triton Regional High School's Athletic Director to form a co-op; both schools are excitedly awaiting final approval. This allows all Clark High School student-athletes to try out for their choice of the athletic teams Triton has to offer.
Information about Triton's athletic programs can be found at http://www.trsd.net/athletics/.
It is not too early to sign up for summer clinics. The benefits of interscholastic athletics are many. This is an exciting time for our school!

High school art students were recently given an assignment to research a charity they were interested in and create a piece of art related to their charity. Junior Izzy Sleeman created and donated a piece of art for the American Brain Tumor Association because of her personal connection with the organization's mission. Here's what Izzy told us about her piece:
"I chose to research the American Brain Tumor Association because my family has a personal connection with them. My mother has an non-malignant brain tumor and in the past has had two surgeries to remove it. I wanted to support this cause to raise awareness for other families that have been through similar experiences, and to hopefully find a cure. My art piece is inspired by the inside of a brain, and the neurons that send and receive signals throughout the body. Part of the assignment included emailing our charity. I emailed the ABTA, and within the next day I received a personal reply. I offered to donate my piece to their organization and she gladly accepted."
Here's a list of schools our current seniors have received acceptances from so far:

Building on Success: A $64,000 Campaign
Clark School’s 2014 Spring/Summer Capital Campaign enabled our campus relocation to 14 Forest Ridge Drive. More than half a million dollars and over 6,500 man hours were provided by companies, faculty, families and students to make our new campus ready for classes to begin in September.
Now, a new opportunity has presented itself available which will allow us to build on our success at our new home. The 1,600-square foot space next to our current building is being added to our campus spaces, maximizing its use beginning December 1st.
Expanding upon our proud educational history, we are making the next logical step to grow our educational offerings in the arts in this new space.
Open houses at Clark School are a great way for prospective families to learn about our educational philosophy, ask questions, and see our beautiful new Rowley campus. Open houses are held throughout the school year.Upcoming open houses are scheduled for March 26 and April 30. Please click here to send us your RSVP. We look forward to seeing you!
