Yesterday morning, 7th and 8th grade students had the opportunity to hear about the importance of education from two prominent figures. First, 16th District State Representative, Lou Lang was at Clinton to meet Principal Cesario and gladly spoke to students for a few minutes about the importance of doing well in school and valuing education.
Mr. Jim Mills, a Clinton alumni, then spoke to students with similar sentiments. Mr. Mills spoke with students about the One Year Older, One Year Smarter Program and emphasized that no matter where you started, what language you speak, or what your individual circumstances are, there is always room for growth and improvement. Thank you to both our guest speakers for inspiring our students.
Clinton held its first school-wide science fair during the month of December. Students and teachers worked hard to answer inquiry based questions using the scientific method focused on this year’s theme: STEM. Students presented their results to their peers, teachers, and a group of community members. The following eighth grade students had the most impressive projects and will represent Clinton School at the network competition.
Haroon Hussaini: “Eco Charge”
Shazaib Mukhi: “The Perfect Hit”
Trish Le: “Reinventing the Shopping Cart”
Michael Tang: “Let there be Light”
Congratulations to all students and teachers who participated in the Science Fair. We can not wait for History Fair later this year!
