All Aboard! January 14 District Bus Tour (Photo)Clarkston School Dist. - 12/29/14
CLARKSTON, WA - Kick off the New Year with a seat on the next Clarkston District Bus Tour, scheduled for Wednesday, January 14 from 9:30 AM to 12:30 PM. The January 14 Bus Tour will visit Parkway Elementary and Lincoln Middle School as participants are shuttled from the District Office to each of the schools aboard a Clarkston school bus.
What exactly is a District Bus Tour? Clarkston School District offers three free bus tours each year as a unique opportunity to look at what's happening in our schools. Tours allow those who may not normally have the opportunity to visit schools a chance to see first-hand what learning looks like today.
Observe and interact with students and teachers inside classrooms, visit with district and school staff, and learn more about what is needed for students to succeed in school today. The bus tour begins and ends at the Clarkston School District Office. Each tour concludes with a free lunch and question and answer session with Superintendent Tim Winter.
Space is limited, and anyone wishing to attend must register first. Community members are encouraged to reserve their spot by contacting Communications Director, Molly Curtiss, at CurtissM@csdk12.org or at 509.544.5787.
