Thank you so much to our wonderful PTA! Your kindness and generosity has made the Clyde Hill staff feel loved, valued and supported. One of the many reasons I love teaching at Clyde Hill is the amazing home support from families, whether that’s families reading at home with their child(ren) or volunteering at school. All the hard work you do at home has a positive impact here at school. Thank you for providing us with goodies for this special week!
