Welcome to the PowerSchool Parent Portal!
Studies have shown that parental engagement in a child’s education is the single most important factor in student achievement. As part of Stamford Public Schools continued effort to improve communication and engagement with our families, we are happy to let you know that we are launching our PowerSchool Parent Portal for all middle school and high school parents beginning on November 20, 2014.
This portal will provide you with secure access to information about your middle school and/or high school children’s grades and attendance records through a single account. You will need a computer with internet access to create your account. If you do not have access to a computer, you may visit the public library nearest you.
You can get started right away by following the steps in this document. Please click HERE for English. Please click HERE for Spanish.
Cloonan’s Cardboard Challenge
Cloonan’s SEA4 Buddies began participating in the 2014 Global Cardboard Challenge. The Stamford Education “4” Autism (SE4A) Buddies is a club at Cloonan Middle School that was created by students to help all children develop stronger social skills and spread the awareness of Autism to their peers attending the Stamford Public Schools. These students get together with students within the Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) class to do fun and educational activities. The club benefits all its members by building kind, caring, empathetic, and social members of society. Please click HERE to read more information.
We are in need of “gently used” or new children’s COATS (sizes 10-18 Boys & Girls). Any and all donations are to be dropped off in the front office. Please, refrain from Adult or newborn/toddler sizes and clothes due to limited storage space.Thank you for all of your support.

Dear Cloonan Families,
It is with great sadness that we write to inform you of the death of Mr. Sal Buchetto, a Cloonan teacher who retired in 2010 after gracing our halls and Science labs for over 35 years. He was a friendly and popular teacher who touched the lives of generations of Cloonan students, parents and teachers. He will be greatly missed.
In this time of sadness, please know that we are doing everything possible to support our staff and students as we deal with this tragedy. The school district has provided counselors for staff who needed to talk through the situation.
Here is a link for parents to talk with kids about death: http://www.nasponline.org/resources/crisis_safety/deathgrief.pdf. You can find out more information through the Families Centers website at http://www.familycenters.org/. We also want to share some guidelines for how you can help your child cope with his or her grief. Please look to http://www.joshrojas.org/guidelines.asp, http://www.recover-from-grief.com/grieving-children.html, or http://www.thealcove.org/grief_guidelines_for_parents.html for some helpful suggestions. There is also local resource called The Den for Grieving Kids.
Please let us know if there is anything else that we can do for your child. The grieving process does not have a timeline. Reactions may be delayed or come in unexpected ways. Be assured that whatever support is needed will be available whenever it is needed. Thank you for your support and prayers. Please do not wear anything black. Donations to help the family can be made here http://www.gofundme.com/fwkpws
