Fostering Student Success by Partnering with Educators and Our Community

The Foundation exists to foster opportunities that strengthen student success through partnership with our educators and our community. It is our belief that every student be given the opportunity to thrive in an environment that provides academic enrichment  and the necessary tools to help them become the best of the next generation.

Through partnership we can begin to bridge the gap between the needs of the school, the opportunities provided to the students and the resources available to the educators in order to have a strong and positive impact on the community.


Our vision is that every student has an opportunity to meet their highest potential and be prepared for the global marketplace.


All students regardless of ability, race, ethnicity, gender or socio-economic status deserve the best education the community can deliver.

In the transformational power of education for students at all levels of readiness, ability and achievement.

In educating the whole child including a focus on physical, social, emotional and intellectual development.

Education should be challenging, enriching, inspiring and fun.

In community involvement, volunteerism and investment in public education.

– Arts

– Academics

– Leadership

– Technology

– Wellness


Dana Carlton is the principal of McClure Middle School. Hear her heart regarding the need of the school and the purpose of the Foundation:

Thank you for your interest in the McClure Middle School Foundation. In order to make our students successful at the middle school level and to prepare them for high school, many resources are required beyond those currently available on a daily basis. The McClure Middle School Foundation is the vehicle by which parents and community can contribute directly to maintaining the high standards we demand for our children.

Our goal is to transform traditional classrooms into digital age classrooms. We strive to create and support effective learning environments that empower digital-age learners, teachers, and administrators to use technology tools to enhance rigorous, relevant, and engaging learning experiences. It is very important that our students be able to compete on a global level.  Through ongoing use of technology tools we will engage them in enriched practice for lifelong learning and success.

We truly appreciate your support of the McClure Middle School Foundation and investing in our students’ success. We strive to provide the highest quality education to each and every student as they “Dare to Dream for the Success that Awaits”!


Dana Carlton, Principal
