-Summer Math- Continuing to practice and maintain math skills that were learned this year is an essential part of being prepared for the next school year.  This summer every CMS student will be given assignments to complete in Khan Academy.  Khan is a great tool because it provides students with immediate feedback on their work as well as providing videos and articles that will reteach any material students need help with.  Please go to: or the CMS website for complete information.

-Clark Memorial Library is excited to announce that we in collaboration with Beanstacks are announcing our new 2020 summer reading program, "Imagine Your Story."  The Beanstacks program allows our students and adults to log and participate in our challenges online.  Students are challenged to read daily for 15 minutes per day and once they reach 2 hours of reading they will be awarded with a ticket that is placed in our online raffle.  The more hours you read the more chances you have to win our prizes.  Adults must register their children via this website:  Our program begins June 21st but pre-registration is accepted beginning today.  Our program will continue for 8 weeks until August 15th.  If you have any questions please contact the library at:
