This year is moving by quickly.  However, everyone had a great 1st nine weeks and we look forward to an even better one this time.

 

Clay Elementary will have an awards program on November 1 at 8:00 for 3rd-5th grade and on November 2 at 8:00 for K-2nd grade.  If your child will be receiving an award, you received a letter home on Monday, October 22.  Please read the letter carefully for instructions.

 

PTA has kicked off their Fall Fundraiser.  They are selling popcorn and goodies.  The money and order forms are due on November 5. Thanks for supporting PTA and our students.

 

TAG will have 3rd grade parent meetings on November 6 at 4:00 in the lunchroom.

 

We will have our Fall Dance on November 8 for 3rd – 5th grade students.  The cost is $5.00.  It is from 3:00 – 5:00 p.m.  Students must have a permission slip to attend and must be picked up promptly at 5:00 through the carline in the front of the school.  We will also be selling refreshments for $1.00 each.  All permission slips should be received by November 7.  We will not allow students to call for permission slips on the 8th.

 

We are selling Friendship Pictures on November 8.  The cost is $5.00.

They will be 5x7 prints.  Students can have their picture made with a friend in their grade level.  We will have a Fall background.  We will have them printed at a photo center and get them to you within a week.  Just complete the permission slip and return with $5.00 by the 7th.  This gives us time to construct a schedule for pictures.

 

School is closed on November 12 for Veteran’s Day.  Take time that day to do something nice for one of our Veterans.

School will be closed November 19 – 23 for Thanksgiving Break.  If your child is registered with Clay Community Education, they are taking a poll of how many students need child care during that week.  If they have enough students signed up, they will open for part of that week.

 

Hope everyone has a Safe and Happy Thanksgiving!
