Clay Elementary Students Take the Lead
Mrs. Owens Presents Clay Elementary's Students Take the Lead Projects to the BOE on December 12, 2016.
Buddy classes learned about childhood hunger. The learned about healthy foods, local hunger problems as well as world hunger, ways they can help, and why some people have more food than others. They created fall food boxes for 10 students to take home during fall break. The students created posters or powerpoints to present what they learned.
Fourth grade students paired up with a K-1 student. They researched veterans and make a Veteran’s Day booklet. They completed armed forces research and learned about 4 branches of the military. Students chose a branch and researched uniforms and made pictures of themselves as a member of that branch. They created a military man based on their research. Fourth grade students led the K-1 students in making cards, artwork, letters, or a computer based project of student choice to send to members of our active military.
The buddy classes compared America and Central America focusing on the country of Honduras. The students discussed and participated in activities comparing languages, foods, art, flags, explorers, holidays and weather. The students made different items like flags, masks, posters, etc. The 4th grade presented a powerpoint to the first grade, helped them make mini books and demonstrated how to make masks.
The 6th and 2nd grades teamed up to do a community service learning project, "Everyone Deserves a Home." The students read about animals, especially dogs. They created dog toys to donate to Molly’s Mutts and created adoption posters for the Webster County dog pound. Molly’s Mutts provided a guest speaker and a furry friend to come talk about proper care, adoption, and how to work with your dog. Students made dog treats to give to the Webster County dog pound. The project culminated with groups of students creating presentations on topics learned throughout their course of study and sharing them with other classes.
The buddy classes studied the 3 three R’s (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle). Students researched and became “experts” on their topic. They were divided into groups to teach the other students what they learned. The classes had a guest speaker from S&S Recycling and they plan to set up a recycling program at Clay School as their local service learning project.
Clay Students Take the Lead

WC "All Day, Every Day" Attendance Initiative
A recent study shows that students who miss more school than their peers consistently score lower on standardized tests, regardless of their age, demographic group or where they live. Improving student attendance is an essential, cost-effective but often overlooked strategy for school improvement, closing achievement gaps and ensuring all our students are on-track to learn and succeed.
Clay Elementary had 94.37% attendance for JANUARY 2017.
“Ultimate Warrior” Presentation Kicks Off KPREP
Mr. Myers gave his “Ultimate Warrior” presentation to students and staff as part of Clay Elementary's KPREP kick off. He discussed focusing your body and mind, setting goals and developing a plan to reach them. He also introduced Japanese culture by telling them about the Japanese Samurai. He also taught how to count and say several words in Japanese.
