Students worked through the writing process from start to finish, and were expected to fill out a self-assessment rubric. Here are just a few!

Thank you to all of our volunteers from this year! We have had parents, family members, and community helpers who have given their time and support to everyone at Clifton Hills, and we wouldn't be the school we are without them!

Here are some pictures from the Volunteer Luncheon that was held this past Tuesday.

*Special thanks to Ms. Williams, Mrs. Smith, and Ms. Toles for working so hard on the place mats and flower pot center pieces!*
