Principal's Message

Dr. Fine

Welcome to 4th Quarter Clark family,

We are extremely proud of the progress and successes to date with respect to our school, students, and staff.  We have implemented various programs, which have been accommodating the social, emotional, and academic needs of our learners.  We want to thank the board, district office, and community for their vision, support, and remaining part of the solution.  Michael Fullan has stated, “change is a process; not an event.”  Our focus on therapeutic interventions and conflict resolution allow all stakeholders to individualize our approaches and system.  

The student leadership has been a part of many initiatives including but not limited to social activism, program ideas, trips, and community outreach (check out this video as well: Our robotics program has been a success as we are working on numerous projects and three-dimensional activities.  Our honor roll continues to increase each quarter as our focus on student-centered instruction highlights much of our professional development.  

The design of our professional learning communities has allowed the professionals to collaborate on student needs, clinical intervention, curriculum, and instruction.  Thank you to St. Christopher’s for their partnership and wrap-around service we provide our youth, every day.  Our senior class has done an amazing job regarding applications to higher-education opportunities. These post-high school experience include Mercy College, University of Buffalo, Corning, WCC, and Manhattanville, Iona, Dutchess, Delhi, Sullivan, Pace, Elmira, and many others.  Our “mantra” this quarter is to, “finish strong” and remained focused on individual successes.  

Below highlights some important dates to remember (see calendar for additional information):

Global regents:  June 5th
Prom:  June 7th
