I cannot impress upon you enough how important it is for your child to stay academically active through this break and our Winter Break. Our students need to read 40 to 50 pages everyday if they are in intermediate and our primary students should be reading three to four books a day. When your children see you reading they will read too. Take time out of your day to drop everything and read during the holidays. Ask your child questions about their books. Myon will also be available over the various breaks. There are hundreds of thousands books available virtually.
October Service Learning Project
The food donations that were made during our Trunk A Ween supplied our Fill a Backpack Program. We are able to replenish our food pantry to help those families that need some extra assistance.
Mr. Gries is also working with each grade level in our gardening area. The students are learning so much and we hope to produce docents for our environment I have personally never seen corn grow from a seed, and I am enjoying the process myself.
Micah, from Mrs. Sosa and Mrs. Giesking approached me about raising money to help organizations clean our oceans. He told me about an organization that is creating robots to go into the rivers to take all the garbage out so it can be destroyed. He also told me that every dollar we raise will eliminate one pound of garbage. I love his initiative and we are working together to send out information to families. He is very passionate about the project and I will help support the cause. Great job Micah.
You can purchase your child's shirt on Mypaymentsplus.com. This is a life hack for those of us who are busy. Set up your account and you can pay for just about everything online. Thanks everyone.
Fourth Grade is Going to Kennedy Space Center
You signing up and paying for PTA makes you a member and contributes to the PTA budget. We should have 640 parents signed up as a PTA member. We have about 180 parents and all of our staff are members. This is a small thing that contributes greatly to our school. Send in your money or sign up through PTA. Thank you for addressing this.
Our PTA does wonderful things on our campus and they support so many initiatives at our school. Every PTA member is valued and we would love to see you for volunteer opportunities moving forward. One of those opportunities is volunteering in the Media Center to help shelve and check out books to our students.
Great American Teach In
Thank you Benjamin Bell
Thank you for speaking to our students about the dedication and discipline it takes when you were a guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. I am amazed at the level of commitment of the guards at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. At Claywell we have great respect for those who serve, have served, and will serve our country.
