Clippard Boot Camp

Clippard recruits National Guard for important life lessons
Posted on 08/21/2018
The new school year means new expectations and goals, and the staff at Clippard Elementary recruited some very important guest teachers to help set the tone for 2018-19.

Members from the National Guard volunteered their time to talk to students about how to be safe, respectful and responsible.  They also gave students the opportunity to try exercises from boot camp.  

"Our theme for the district this year is superheroes and we wanted to honor real life superheroes here at Clippard,"  said Amy Emmenderfer, the school's principal.

Emmenderfer says this special partnership will continue through the year as Clippard will include members of the military in a number of scheduled events.
