Congratulations Are in Order
Tara Schwartz, our ESE Specialist was selected as the Ida S. Baker recipient this year. This award is for those who work closely with At Risk students. Mrs. Schwartz is an asset to our school and she runs around supporting everyone. She too is someone that stops what she is doing to help everyone in our school.
Our Instructional Support Person for Claywell is Luz Gomez. Luz is a custodian on our campus that simply works hard and takes great pride in what she does. Luz too is someone that is proactive in our school and gets the job done. We are fortunate to have Luz on our campus.
The above people characterize our school. We have a staff of hard working, caring people that don't define themselves by the title the work. If they see something that needs to get done they get it done. We have a wonderful staff and I am happy these three get the recognition they deserve.
Conference Night and Instruction
Our instruction has been tremendous this year. We are focusing on high level student discussion in every subject. We are able to determine between discussion and writing how accurately your child is learning. It is incredible the level of discussion we are hearing in the classrooms.
We are also working your kids hard. Our staff understands that we are constantly enriching and accelerating our students. Your child should be coming home tired and excited all at the same time. Our teachers continue to amaze me with the level of lessons they are giving to each child.
Volunteers on Campus
We need people to help out in the Media Center. Please click below for the days and times you are available to help check out and shelve books. We would like to keep a consistent schedule so if you or a friend would like to alternate times it would be appreciated. The link is below.
Car Line Improvement
Our new system is working out very well. We are getting roughly 150 students safely in their cars in about 22 minutes. If we have no lull or late pick ups we can get even faster than that. Our car line is ending at about 2:22 each day again when everyone comes on time. Our goal is to get everyone home quickly so our teachers can get their many tasks done, and get home to their families at a proper time.
