Elementary Summer Reading Fair

Grades 1st-5th have an opportunity to enter into the Clay Elementary Summer Reading Fair on the evening of Open House: August 21, 2023.
Click below for each grade level's list of suggested books from which to choose. Students will choose ONE book from the list and create a poster project on the book. Be creative on your poster! Include a summary of the book, characters, and what you liked most about the book. The reading fair will be optional, but we encourage each student to participate. You have the whole summer to read one book and create a poster!
Winners for best poster will be chosen for each grade level and prizes will be passed out. We are excited to encourage reading over the summer! :)

Third Grade Collects Art Supplies for Orphanage


Each year the third grade participates in  a project called, Hearts Around The World to learn about the states in the USA and countries around the world. The first Valentine for 2021, came from an orphanage in Iraq. The young lady who sent the Valentine made it with what little she had. Her act of kindness inspired the students to collect art supplies for the children who have no supplies. The supplies were sent, and they soon received an appreciative response:

Thanks to you and your class!  The art supplies are in my office, and I will hand carry them to the camp on the 27th.  So I should have pics by the 28th, which I will send via this email.  Thank you so much.  You are all of you so very generous, and the gift will be a huge benefit to kids in a refugee camp.  They have lived there for 6 years now, and it is not an easy life.  But Yazidis, as I am fond of saying, sparkle.  I don’t know how else to describe it.  They are positive, optimistic, and throw themselves into each new day, each new activity.  They could be depressed and morose, but instead they sparkle; with hope and a belief in the future.   Thank you, Brenda, and all your kids!
