Dear parents and guardians:
Welcome to another exciting school year. This marks my first full year as Principal of Cleary Elementary School. We have a great staff of teachers and paraprofessionals who do an excellent job of serving our student population.
Our teachers are committed to delivering thorough and outstanding instruction in the classroom. Please get to know your child's teachers and stay in regular communication with them to track their progress and clarify any questions or concerns you may have.
We also have some great events lined up for the school year including a trip to The Philadelphia Zoo, a Talent Show, a 3 on 3 basketball tournament and a field day.
Please do not hesitate to contact me at any time during the school year. I have an open door policy and I always welcome your feedback. I encourage all parents and guardians to get involved in our P.T.O. and to have your voice heard.
We look forward to seeing you in September.
Due to recent changes to Powerschool the login and password for parents must be recreated. Some of you have already completed this process so you will not need to do it again. For those of you who have not yet created a new account since the start of the school year please follow these directions.
1. Letter sent home earlier is the information for the parent access id and parent access password that you will need to create your account.
2. Please go to the Cleary homepage onto the Parent Rescources.(left side)
3. Click on the Powerschool link then click create an account.
4. Follow the simple steps, remembering to fill in YOUR parent access ID and PW under your students name in link student accounts.
It is Case Sensitive. If your child is a Jr. or III please make sure that is also put in when you enter the student's name.
Type Last name, First name Generation code. (Example: Jr.)
5. Fill in the information for each of your children and hit the return button.
This is a time delayed process so once you complete the process please allow the system time to update. Once the process is done it will follow your child each school year.
Any questions or concerns please reach out to your child's guidance counselor.
Once you are logged in to view your child’s teacher quarter grades, comments or assignments for any marking period will be displayed.
To find these for each quarter, go on the left hand tab called Navigation, then click on grade history. You can see your child's grades that have been archived, then click on the percent in blue you will see the teacher’s comments for that class.
Another way you can see your child’s comment is under the navigation tab, click on the teacher comments tab, then changed the reporting term to the Quarter you wish to view. The comments will appear for the quarter you have chosen.
If you are looking for the current marking period information just click on the grade that appears on the main PowerSchool Page when you log in. When you click on the grade you will see your child's assignments for the marking period that you have chosen.
Students gave a short speech of their abilities and why they should be elected as President!
Grand Event! Where Books are the Treasure!
Students invited a Grandparent or Someone Special into School to shop at the Book Fair.
The box tops trophy will go to Mrs. Endres' class, they collected a total of 297 box tops.
Mrs. Russell's class was close, they collected 242 box tops! Great job!
I would like to recognize our TOP collectors, each bringing in over 100 box tops. Our top collector is Ethan Ennis who brought in 169!
Lincoln DuBois collected 150, Tanner Innis, 142, Jake Harris, 133, Dominic Longona, 125 and Jenna Ewan with 114!

Demonstrating exceptional character, service & scholarship!
I promise to read and do math
each day and each night.
I know it’s the key
to growing up right.
I’ll read to myself,
I’ll read to a crowd.
It makes no difference
if silent or loud.
I’ll solve my math problems
at home and at school,
I’ll try my hardest to make math cool.
Each book that I read and problem I solve
puts smarts in my head,
because brains grow more thoughts
The more they are fed.
So I take this oath
to make reading and math my way
of feeding my brain
what it needs every day.
