4-H Information

Hello Clinton County Schools!

I have heard amazing things about what a great job all teachers and staff are doing in our Clinton County schools during these trying times and know you are all working long hours to offer your students the best you can.  All of us parents are grateful.  I know you are super busy and have lots of curriculum to cover in a much shorter period but I just wanted to say, that 4-H misses your classrooms as well.  We are here and whenever you are ready, just reach out, we now also have virtual for lessons.

In the mean time I would appreciate it if you would share our exciting virtual opportunities with your students via a classroom newsletter or your school website or facebook page.  We have some great events planned next week to celebrate National 4-H Week!  All the details are below to include or simply share the graphic attached.

Fall is a great time to join 4-H!
