Principal's Message

Dear Clark Families, 

It gives us great pleasure to welcome you and your child(ren) to the 2023-24 school year at John S Clark Elementary School.

We are excited to have students return to campus and fill our classroom with the energy and enthusiasm to learn about themselves and the world around them. This year we look forward to introducing new and exciting learning experiences with a special focus on sparking student individual curiosity through thematic units connecting multiple subject areas. 

Our teachers and staff stand committed to working together, going above and beyond what is expected to make sure that our academic programs align to the launch of our school’s journey as an International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Year Programme (PYP) Candidate School. We will continue to embed our love of languages and cultures into all aspects of who we are as a school community, and we believe that this will enhance our strong connection with our families and the greater Waukegan community.

We will continue to count on you to add to our positive energy and contributions to what we’re striving to accomplish as we prepare students for another exciting school year. 

Thank you for all you do for the Clark School community!

Principal Gladys Rodriguez 

Assistant Principal Rosanna Cardenas Ortiz
