Principal's Message

Dear Clayton Community, 

We are at the start of another fantastic school year at Clayton Middle School. My name is Kate Arch, and I am the new principal. I am excited to join our Clayton educators in their mission to create an engaging middle school learning environment, which is designed support academic achievement, fun, and focus for our students.  

This is my twentieth year in education. I was a teacher here at Clayton for six of my 12 years as an english language arts and social studies teacher. I have spent the last three years as an assistant principal at West High School in Salt Lake City School District, and I am looking forward to being back in middle school – the best age group! 

Middle school is a highly impactful time for students, and we understand this at Clayton. We create a space to ensure students are safe and that they thrive throughout their time inside our school. Our teachers, counselors, staff members, and administrators are committed to serving your students. At Clayton, we are focused on building an inclusive space for all students.  

This year is going to be incredible as we learn, share, and grow together as Clayton Cougars. Keep climbing, Cougars.
