Supply Fee

Hello Clear Lake families!

We are requesting a $25 fee that will go towards classroom supplies and other items that are needed throughout the school year. Please pay this as soon as you are able. Make sure you purchase a backpack or a bag for your child and we will provide the rest! If you have any questions please call our office.

***Edited to add: Sorry for the confusion. There is no supply list this year. Instead we’re asking for a $25 supply fee that will cover the cost of student supplies in the classroom. All your student needs is a backpack. We do have a limited supply of backpacks in the office for students who need one. If you paid this fee during online registration, you are all set! THANK YOU!  If you would rather pay in person our office hours are 9am to 3pm.

Thank you for your patience while we roll out this new program.

News For Incoming Kindergarten Students

Now in its 5th year, the Kindergarten Smart Start program is a carefully designed process intended to ensure a successful transition into kindergarten for your child.

During the first week of school, your child will attend school one day. During the second week of school, from Monday through Thursday, your child will attend school on a staggered start, a half-day either in the morning or afternoon. This will enable kindergarten staff to:

  • Introduce your child to school in small groups with a supportive team of educators
  • Teach expectations and routines as they learn about recess on the playground
  • Teach cafeteria procedures as they eat lunch
  • Assess students in academic areas and school readiness activities in small groups
  • Meet with families to learn more about your child
  • Determine classroom assignments to best meet the educational needs of every child

Smart Start also allows time for you to meet with your child’s kindergarten teacher before the school year begins. At this meeting, you can help the teacher get to know your child and ask any questions you may have about the upcoming school year.

During registration, you will sign up for a time to meet with your child’s classroom teacher on Thursday, September 5th or Friday, September 6th and indicate a preference for either the morning or afternoon for staggered start the second week of school (September 9-13).  Your school will notify you of the exact time of your parent/teacher meeting and confirm your staggered start time.

Hello and Registration

Hello Clear Lake Families!

I wanted to take a moment to introduce myself. My name is Karyn Bayer and I am so excited to be your new principal at Clear Lake Elementary! I am originally from Oregon; born and raised in Salem. I started my teaching career as a bilingual 1st grade teacher in 1998. The majority of my career has been in bilingual and Dual Language classrooms ranging from grades K-5. After that, I spent four years as an Instructional Coach before becoming an Assistant Principal. For two years I served as the Assistant Principal at Nellie Muir Elementary prior to moving back to Alexandria, Virginia to be closer to some family members. I had the pleasure of working in two elementary schools while I was back east. However, I kept feeling the tug of the Pacific Northwest and decided to move back.

I am excited to begin this journey with you and your children. We will have registration on Thursday, August 8th from 12-7pm. If you haven’t had the chance to register your child, please feel free to stop by, introduce yourself and we can help you get registered.

All the best to my Clear Lake families!

Farewell and Thank You!!
The last day of school- June 18- marked the end of my 14th year at Clear Lake. I’m so proud of the staff, students, and families who have passed through the school and supported Clear Lake and Bethel. Remember that education and knowledge are the keys to attaining whatever you wish in life- it just takes hard work and follow-through to make it happen. And it starts with the first day of Kindergarten…

The Grade 1-2 P.E.T.S. Music show


Grade 1-2 P.E.T.S. Musical Was Purrrrrfect!
Students from grades 1 & 2 performed a variety of songs and played instruments for their families in the P.E.T.S. Musical (People Everywhere Treasure Snuggles). Whether four-legged, two-legged, or no-legged (those wonderful reptiles!!), students celebrated the love of having pets that typically are part of the family. It was a packed house and another great show created by our fantastic music teacher- Lori Kelley.
