We are excited for the Clearwater school-wide choir performances scheduled for tonight. Please be reminded that choir is not the only activity scheduled at Clearwater this evening and there will be increased traffic and congestion. For those that have attended our programs in the past, you are more than likely to be aware that parking and traffic can be troublesome.
We are strongly encouraging able bodied family members to make use of overflow parking areas. Overflow parking spaces are available at the Waconia High School and the north side of the parking lot at Waconia Ice Arena. If you arrive and see that there is congestion on Community Drive, it will be faster to park in one of the overflow lots and walk the block and half to Clearwater. Please also budget additional time for traffic and a walk from one of the overflow parking areas. We look forward to seeing you at the performances tonight.

Greetings to Clearwater Parent and Guardians:
As we head into the very busy holiday season, we wanted to take a moment to thank you for supporting your student’s academic accomplishments. We are off to a great start and our first quarter honor roll is burgeoning with success. Please remember that Clearwater is operating on a four-quarter calendar this year instead of the three-trimester calendar in place in the other District 110 schools.
December offers performance opportunities for our student band and choir groups. If you have not been to a middle school choir or band concert recently, they are magical. Even though our performance space can be described as less than ideal, our students create an atmosphere of fun and excellent musicianship. Please join us if you can.
We ask for your continued patience with our busy traffic pattern during the student drop-off and pick-up times. We can expect that the eventual snowfalls will extend the time it takes to make your way in and out of Clearwater. We would encourage you to continue to focus on student safety as no amount of saved moments could ever compensate for an injured child.
On a personal note, my wife and I will be traveling to Singapore to participate in the wedding of our youngest son. The trip will require me to be absent from Clearwater for the two weeks immediately prior to Christmas break. Assistant Principal Shane Clausen and Administrative Intern, Dr. Timothy Berry will continue to respond to your questions or concerns as they arise.
