As we gear up for the forth week of school, I want to express my sincere gratitude for the warm welcome I have received from the St. Clement Community. I send a heartfelt thank you for your continued support, patience and understanding as we work together – parents, parish, teachers, staff and students- to foster the hopes and dreams for your children’s learning. I hope you are as excited as I am for a great year! ~ Mrs. Dafoe

- Rowan’s Day – Rowan Stringer loved rugby. A competitive and keen athlete, she was captain of her high school’s team. Tragically, in May 2013, 17-year old Rowan died as the result of head injuries she sustained while playing rugby. In the week before her last game, Rowan was hit twice while playing, likely sustaining a concussion after each blow. Her concussions went unreported, and she continued to play. Rowan suspected something wasn’t right—she texted a friend about her condition and used Google to search for information about concussions. When she was hit again in her final game, Rowan suffered what is known as Second Impact Syndrome— catastrophic swelling caused by a second injury to a brain still healing from previous trauma. Rowan collapsed on the field on May 8, 2013, and died four days later. On Rowan’s Day, students will receive messaging about concussions from their classroom teacher.
A reminder that if you would like to order a hot lunch, your order is due at noon on Sunday.
