We are off to a great start in CLIC! Classes are beginning to come during the school day. I am busy meeting with teachers creating hands on projects for your children's science, social studies, and language arts learning this month.
For those who don't know me, I created CLIC Program for Proctor School in 2011, and was the CLIC teacher until 2016. I took some time off, and educator, Kristen Cahill taught CLIC until 2019. I am happy to be returning to Proctor School as the CLIC teacher once again. I have always enjoyed working with the community of Topsfield. I am looking forward to getting to know all of you and have an exciting year with your children.
CLIC Clubs have begun this week of September 23rd. You can get CLIC Club permission forms on the Club Forms link on the website as well at the school. I ask that everyone have patience as we transition to the paper permission form this year. There will be no online sign up. I will do my best to get all children into the clubs. There are:
Please consider making a donation to CLIC Program. CLIC is unique in that it is supported through both private and public funding. The entire materials budget for CLIC comes from families, companies, organizations, and grants. If you love what CLIC does for your child's creativity, education, and sense of community, please support it! Every donation makes a difference. and you can donate at any time of the year.
Please make checks out to Town of Topsfield with CLIC on the memo line. Thank you!
I am also looking for material donations. If you have something that you think the children would enjoy working with please let me know. Some of the best materials in CLIC come from families cleaning out a craft closet or donating left over materials from projects. We especially need large pieces of cardboard or plywood for theatre sets. I also would love to teach the chidren how to sew on sewing machines so that's on the top of the wishlist.

Thank you! Jen LaRussa
