Clark Elementary School mascot, the Clark Bee

Clark Elementary School opened in 1931 in the Belmont-Carlton neighborhood and is named for American frontiersman George Rogers Clark. Their school mascot is the Clark Bee. [1] Clark Elementary School students abide by the 5 Bee's, based on their mascot, the bee.[1]

Historic status

The Charlottesville School Board is considering seeking individually protected property status for the construction. [2]


The Five Bee's

  • Be Kind

  • Be Respectful

Clark Elementary also hosts a 5K Fun Run/Walk that raises funds for the Clark Educational Opportunity Fund.[1] The Fund supports fourth-grade scholarships for Clark students and classroom grants for Clark teachers.[1]


Community Partnerships

In February 2012, University of Virginia students worked with Clark Elementary to implement a schoolyard garden. The garden is intended to work in-tandem with Clark's nutritional education classes.[4]
