Welcome back to Clairmont Community School for a new year! This year looks to be as interesting as last year with the world finding its way through COVID and schools adjusting to best educate our kids. I feel privileged to work with the outstanding, professional staff of CCS and feel that very few groups can handle the upcoming challenge as well as this team. The upcoming year is going to continue to push everyone to be flexible but I feel that this school and community will continue to work together to find great outcomes for all of our students.
This coming year will be my 4th at CCS and first as the principal. I am very excited for this new role and hope that I can fill the large shoes of the principals that have come before me. This school has a great legacy of developing relationships and a feeling of belonging that I want to continue. My educational philosophy is that students learn best when they feel a connection with their educators. This school brings that idea to life and will continue to focus on relationships moving forward.
For our returning families, welcome back. If you are new to our school I hope you find this school to be as awesome as I do. This school year is certainly going to be different then what we are used to but I have no doubt that we can find success in whatever model education takes.
As the year begins please do not hesitate to reach out to the school if you have any questions. We will continue to keep our school community informed through Facebook, our school webpage and letters home but if you ever need clarification please call. I look forward to continuing to work with everyone in the CCS community and can’t wait to get rolling.
Scott Bowen, Principal
