Hello Harvey Clarke Families,


I hope you are enjoying the last part of your summer! At the present time we are in the midst of kindergarten Jump Start. We have welcomed 69 of our newest community members into the building for a "head start" on their school year. This program is new to Harvey Clarke as well as 5 of the other elementary schools in the district. Students are learning how to navigate the school, cafeteria and the playground as well as getting to know staff and fellow students. If you are a kindergarten parent, I want to thank you for participating in this program. We hope the efforts of many will help us to build balanced classes and allow our youngest students a better chance at school success.


The building has been cleaned and is ready for our students to return. Thanks to our PTO, and their fundraising efforts, our hallways received a fresh coat of paint this summer. It looks great! Thank you PTO!


Our first family newsletter has gone out in the mail. Access this link (Spanish version) if you would like to take a look at the information and view the upcoming important dates.


The school office is open M-Th 8am-4pm. Please feel free to call us at (503) 359-2478 if you have any questions. We look forward to seeing soon!


All my best,


Pete Moshinsky
