Clays Mill's Guidelines for Success:
Cooperate with Others
Always Show Respect
“The mission of Clays Mill Elementary School is to create a collaborative community that ensures all students achieve at high levels and graduate prepared to excel in a global society.”
SBDM Parent Minority Election
The Special Minority Parent Election will be helf on Monday, Nov. 23rd, 2015 and Tuesday, Nov. 24th, 2015 from 7:00 am- 3:00pm. Ballots will be available in the main office at Clays Mill Elementary. Plurality will be used to determine the winner of the election. In other words, the nominee who recieves more votes than anyone else will serve as the minority parent memner on the Site Based Decision-Making Council.
The Giving Tree
Each year the Special Area team hosts a holiday service project with the students and families at Clays Mill called the Giving Tree. We collect new cold weather items for children and families that normally go without during the cold winter months due to family hardships. Some items we typically collect are: gloves, mittens, scarves, thick socks, ear muffs/warmers, winter hats, etc. We will also be accepting new or extremely gently used winter coats. This year we are excited to be able to donate the items collected to our partner school, Harrison Elementary. This school year we have been matched with this school in Fayette County based on the student and family needs there. When opportunities arise throughout the year our students and staff are sharing the overflow and extras that we are fortunate enough to receive. This school (and family) wide service project is a great opportunity to shop and discuss the joy in giving to those who truly have a need during this holiday season. The Giving Tree will be set up in the CME Library Media Center for students and families to drop off and hang their smaller sized donations to decorate our tree or larger items can be dropped off in labeled collection containers in the main entry hallway.
Donated items can be dropped off anytime during the school day between 7:15am - 3:00pm from November 30th - December 11th.
All items donated to the tree will be packaged and taken to Harrison on Monday, December 14th in order to distribute to students before they leave for winter break.
