Welcome back!

Welcome back Clever Bluejays and families! We are excited to get another year started and look forward to partnering with you as we navigate together through your child's educational journey! Through our mission statement, we are committed to promote Purposeful learning, college and career Readiness, and Innovation in education. We will embrace Diversity and encourage Excellence in all we do. We take PRIDE in all we do as we strive to inspire and empower EVERY learner. We are firm believers that all students can learn, and are dedicated to reaching each and every student who enters through our doors. We can't wait to see, hear, share and celebrate each other's genius this year. Let's root for each other, celebrate with each other, spread kindness to each other, and watch each other grow! Clever Bluejays are going to MOVE MOUNTAINS this year!

Open House

We are excited to bring back in person open house August 19th from 5-7! In effort to keep everyone safe and allow for comfortable social distancing the Open House format will look a little different. The following protocols will be in place during Open House. Thank you for your cooperation.



  • One adult may accompany students
  • All visitors (adults) must wear a mask
  • We ask that you please follow the schedule below to ensure time for each family to meet their teacher, drop supplies off and not overcrowd classrooms.



5:00-5:45 Last Name A-M

6:15-7:00 Last Name N-Z

Class lists

Class lists will be posted inside the EleMiddle FEMA shelter during Open House. We are currently working on setting up parent portals in our new student information system, Lumen, and hope to send out information on how to gain access to your student's account very soon. Once you receive your account credentials you will be able to view your child's classroom teacher assignment as well as many other features beneficial to you. We thank you in advance for your patience as we get set things in motion with our new system.

Transportation Form

If your child is a walker, bus rider, or car rider please fill out one form for each child in your family. Responses will help us prepare arrival and dismissal procedures for each student. If you have any questions please contact Transportation Director, Teresa Butler at 743-4800.

PTA

We are blessed to have a small group of parents who form our local Clever PTA. PTA plans activities for students and families including classroom parties, Super Hero Dance, Christmas Shop, skate parties and more. They also hold fundraisers throughout the year to raise funds that directly benefit students, teachers and classrooms. Please consider becoming a member of PTA and help our organization grow. One misconception parents have is the assumption that becoming a member equals a huge time commitment. There are multiple opportunities for parents to volunteer, however it is an optional component of membership. Be sure to stop by their booth during Open House in the FEMA shelter to learn more.
