May the 4th be with you
Mrs. Travaglino's chorus and band concert is May 19th at 6:00 PM in the cafeteria. Mrs. Travaglino always puts together a great show. In other news we had two students selected for the Hillborough Young Songwriter's contest. They both wrote and sang their songs at Sparkman's Wharf, and we were very proud of them. Mrs. Colucci, Ms. Hurman, Mrs. Travaglino, Officer Hogue, and myself enjoyed the program. All the kids truly have guts to get up there and sing something they wrote from their heart.
We are culminating our year with our Clap Out for our fifth graders. We are going to do our clap out around our Shillington car loop like last year. Last year our parents decorated their cars and it was a lot of fun for everyone. The event starts promptly at 11:00, and our gates to the car line close at 10:45. You can park at the golf course if you would like to join after that. This is for our fifth grade students and it has always been a nice tradition to end our year at Claywell.
A special thank you to all those who were able to volunteer. We appreciate all the PTA support and those who were able to serve on our School Advisory Committee. Have a wonderful summer. We will be looking for your support next year too. Please make sure your kids are reading and doing life enriching activities so they can continue to gain experiences.
Science Camp, Saturday, May 14th
Opening Up to Volunteer Opportunities Next Year
We are going to allow parents to come on campus the first few days of school to walk your child to class. After that we will continue with our normal procedure of dropping your child off a the exterior door. We found through Covid that our kids gained a lot of independence and were able to get to class very well. This also helps us to keep a more secure campus. Again, if you would like to volunteer in a specific way we would love to have you on campus. We will also resume our night events to create the community we have always had at Claywell.
