Principal's Bio

Welcome to Clinton Elementary School 2021-22

Welcome to the beginning of a wonderful year of learning at Clinton Elementary School.  We are excited about the opportunity to guide your child for this upcoming academic journey. This is my tenth year as an administrator at Clinton Elementary and my nineteenth year as an educator.  We wanted to inform you of several staff changes/ additions at CES. 

  • Taylor Bailey, 5th Grade- Mrs. Taylor Bailey has joined the 5th grade team this year, teaching reading/language arts. Taylor is a local Clinton resident.  She has previously taught at North Clinton.   Mrs. Bailey replaces Mrs. Denton, who is now teaching intervention/enrichment at CES!

  • Chesney Bowling, Kindergarten- Mrs. Chesney Bowling has joined the Kindergarten team this year.  Chesney interned with Mrs. Shoemaker at CES.  Some of you may remember her father, Officer McBroom, who was the SRO at CES for many years.  Chesney is looking forward to joining the Clinton Elementary School family.

  • Kaylee Houck, 3rd Grade – Mrs. Houck will be joining our 3rd grade team this year.   She interned with us last year in 2nd grade. Kaylee did a phenomenal job with our students, and we are glad that she will be with us this year.

  • Mindy Wilson, CDC- We are excited to have Mrs. Wilson on staff this year.  Mrs. Wilson will be teaching/leading the integration for special needs students at CES.  She has experience at both North and South Clinton as a general education and special education teacher.

  • Kami Morgan, Instructional Assistant, CDC- Mrs. Morgan will be an instructional assistant in our CDC classroom.  She has two children, one of which attends CES.  You may know her mother, Mrs. O’Dell.  Kami is going to be a great addition to Clinton Elementary School.

Morning Drop Off

Parents may drop students off in the back of the school in the car rider line. Students will also be able to enter through the front door by the office. Students need to exit the vehicle through the door closest to the school for safety purposes. PLEASE do not use any parking areas for drop off points and do not pull into the second lane of traffic in the back to drop your child off. This places your child in great danger of stepping into the designated oncoming flow of traffic. 

Pick-Up

We will send home cards with each student in all grades the first week of school. Please take note that all children will be bringing home two pickup cards with the child’s name on it. Parents and guardians are asked to please display these cards in the front windshield of your car. This will help us load students more efficiently.  After the first few days of school, students will not be allowed to be picked up without these cards and parents will be sent to the office to sign the student out. Students in grades K-1 will be picked up in the back of the school through the car rider line, and students in grades 2-6 will be dismissed and are to be picked up in the front of the school.  All parents/guardians are asked to use the proper procedures for picking up students.  You will need to fill out the “beginning of the year dismissal form” with your signature/permission indicating that your child is to walk home if that is the desired dismissal plan for your child. 

We are looking forward to a wonderful school year. Please plan to join us on August 5th from 3:00-6:00 PM for Open House. Our annual Title 1 Meeting and beginning of the year PTCC meeting will be on August 17th, beginning at 3:15.  You are always welcome to contact me with any questions that you may have.  You can also contact your child’s teacher with any questions that you may have via our website at www.clintonschools.org  I am looking forward to a successful school year!

Sincerely,

Jenna Sharp
