NCES Retires Old Glory
When the United States flag becomes worn and faded, it is time to replace it with a new flag with all the dignity and respect befitting our nation's flag.
On Tuesday, November 10th, the Clinton High School Air Force Jr. ROTC held a special ceremony to retire the American flag that has flown I front of North Clinton Elementary School for many years. Major Carl Pittman of the CHS Jr. ROTC explained that the proper way to dispose of the old flag is to burn it and give it a proper burial. Mrs. Harb entrusted the old flag to Major Pittman and the ROTC cadets for disposal. North Clinton students learned a lot about American flag etiquette and respect for what our flag represents during this solemn ceremony.
Through the generosity of Congressman Chuck Fleischmann, North Clinton received a brand new flag that now flies in front of the school.
New Aspen Parent Portal Open
We are pleased to announce that the Aspen Parent Portal is now available! Apsen is our Student Information System where all student data is stored, including grades. Each student has a unique username and password that is available to parents. Once logging in, parents are able to view information regarding their child including demographics, parent contacts, student attendance, assignments, and grades. It is our goal to increase the transparency of your child's academic progress. It is through effective home/school communication that we will see students make great academic gains.
If you need another copy of your child's username and password, please contact the front office or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Due to security measures, we will not give out username and password information over the phone. However, we will make another copy of of the individualized student information sheet and ensure that legal parents/guardians get the information that they need.
Please direct Parent Portal questions to the following people:
