Clark Shark Choir

The 2021-2022 Clark Shark Choir is a group of 3rd-5th graders. This year we had 88 students show up to our weekly rehearsals before school. On June 7, the choir performed outside for families and second grade students. We hope to continue to have these performances during the 2022-23 school year, as well as a PTA sponsored national anthem singing at a sporting event.

Principal Christy Otley

Meet Principal Christy Otley!

Hi, Shark families! My favorite part of being a principal is the learning and growing that happens among students and staff. A few fun facts about me: One of my favorite children’s books is “Lilly’s Purple Plastic Purse.” I hope to someday climb Mount Kilimanjaro, and I once filmed a commercial in the Czech Republic!
