John Clark Elementary School was built in 1936 as a Works Progress Administration (WPA) project. Before additions were made to the school it was known as the only “all-granite” school in the country.
Our school practices Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) which is the practice of teaching and reinforcing the positive behaviors that we want to see in our students.
Each month our 5th graders group up with a student from every other grade and teach a short lesson on character education. We always start the year with lessons that focus on our PBIS tenents of being Respectful, Responsible, and Kind.
We want to thank all the staff that are retiring. Combined the 7 people retiring have given 191 years of experience/service to ROCORI students, staff and community. Your service is appreciated!
