Clay Elementary Fall Fundraiser - 2016

The Clay Elementary Annual Fall Sales Fundraiser raised approximately $10,000 for our school by selling cookie dough to help buy supplies, awards, and party supplies; promote field trips; support the accelerated reader (AR) program, and allow the students to attend selected movies. 

Students who sold at least ten (10) items participated in the pig races on Dec. 1.  The top seller was Zeth Wentz.  He received a $100 Wal-Mart gift card for his effort. The Pig Race overall winner was Noah Steele. He won a $50 Wal-Mart gift card.        

Students selling twenty (20) or more items earned a limo ride and lunch.  Students selling thirty (30) or more items earned a limo ride, lunch, and could also invite a friend to ride in the limo with them.

Read more: Fourth Grade Conducts Mock Election 
The fourth grade recently conducted a mock election in conjunction with the OneVote 2016 Mock Election project. The students discussed important topics concerning the nation (e.g. civil rights, environment, gun control, immigration, national defense, terrorism) and voted on their Presidential choices.  Students believed gun control and terrorism were the two leading concerns that faced the nation, and they gave Trump a nod over Clinton and the other candidates in the mock election.
