INDRA SIGNS WITH COLLEGE OF SAINT MARY:
Faith Indra, current senior at Clarkson Public Schools, has signed to play softball at College of Saint Mary in Omaha. Faith is the daugther of Adam and Chay Indra. Congrats to Faith on signing to play collegiately and best of luck! To follow Faith in the future, here are CSM social media links: Facebook post (College of Saint Mary Athletics) or Twitter post (@CSM_Flames)
News release from College of Saint Mary:
"CLARKSON, Neb. – College of Saint Mary Softball Coach Carolyn Todd Bray is excited to announce the signing of Faith Indra. Indra signed her letter of intent Friday to continue her education and softball career with the Flames in the fall.
The daughter of Adam and Chayann Indra is currently a senior at Clarkson High School. The 5-3 utility player plays softball for Highway 91 and also plays basketball and runs track for Clarkson/Leigh.
“I’m super excited for Faith to join our team,” Bray said. “She’s so versatile. I can see her playing some middle infield for us, but she could also easily get some time in the outfield because the girl can fly. She’s extremely fast and dangerous at the plate and on the basepath.
“She knows the game and is a little spitfire out there. She comes from a great family and I really think she’s going to fit in well at CSM.”
Indra has racked up the honors with Highway 91 including all-state honorable mention, all-conference (twice), all-conference honorable mention and all-district. She owns several program records including runs in a season and career assists.
She considers Jenny Finch her favorite sports hero and her favorite part about high school sports has been having her dad as her coach all four years of softball. Outside of sports she enjoys hanging out with friends.
Indra plans to pursue a nursing degree at CSM.
“I chose CSM because they have a beautiful campus, the college has an amazing nursing program and they have given me the opportunity to play softball,” Indra said.
Ms. Julie from the Colfax County Extension Office came to talk to Mrs. Cropp and Mrs. Kabes PEP class 4 times about DNA. The students were able to make strands of DNA with licorice, marshmallows, and toothpicks, they were able to remove DNA from strawberries, and they were able to find their own fingerprints. The students thought they were detectives when they were able to find their fingerprints with cocoa powder. We can’t wait to have Ms. Julie back for our next lesson!

Seniors & Senior Parents,
The journalism staff is responsible for collecting photos for the yearbook and newspapers. The following photos are due BEFORE THANKSGIVING BREAK. (If we do not receive your pictures at that time, the school picture from Digital Solutions will be used.)
Headshot for the senior page of the yearbook.
Baby picture for the senior page of the yearbook.
Headshot for Colfax County Press.
Headshot to be used for BOTH the Columbus Telegram and for the alumni board
A headshot is a vertical photograph of just the head and shoulders. Pictures of the entire body are too far away to be used.
Please LABEL your photos with your name and what you want it to be used for. We need FOUR separate pictures (even if you’re using the same pose, we need four separate photos to mail and scan). Pictures can be mailed, hand-delivered, or emailed to email@example.com.
Families also have until Thanksgiving break to buy a baby ad in the back of the yearbook. Please send the following if interested:
$20 (payable to CLARKSON PUBLIC SCHOOL).
Baby picture of your child.
A short message of congratulations and encouragement.
Again, we must have all pictures BEFORE THANKSGIVING BREAK! Thank you for your cooperation! If you have any questions, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at the school (402) 892-3454.
Mrs. Lynn Morfeld Journalism Co-Advisor
For the 2021-2022 school year, all Leigh and Clarkson students have free admittance to high school athletic events. This is a change from last year (grades 7-12 were admitted free). An adult must accompany an elementary age student. Due to the change, we will not be selling family activity passes. Individual activity passes are $45 for the year. If you have any questions, please contact the main office at 402-892-3454.
Free Senior Citizen Activity Passes are available for sporting events for those who qualify (65 years of age or older). If you have a Senior Citizen pass from last year it will still be honored. There is no need to get a new one.
Physical Forms will be available in the school office or on the website.

Nebraska law requires children entering Kindergarten, 7th grade, or transferring from an out-of-state school to provide proof of vision evaluation within 6 months prior to school entrance. This evaluation is to include testing for ambylopia, strabismus, internal and external eye health, and visual acuity. This basically means: 1.
