New Bell Schedule
The bell schedule for 2016-2017 all Austin ISD students will change this fall because of a new state law measuring the school day in minutes instead of days.
To comply with this new law, AISD must extend the elementary school day. Because of the size of our district and our transportation system, change affects schedules for our Clayton Cardinals.
After taking into account the feedback from numerous surveys and outreach efforts to families and teachers, the district created the following bell schedule:
Elementary schools: 7:45 a.m.–2:57 p.m.
Middle schools: 8:25 a.m.–3:40 p.m.
High schools: 9 a.m.–4:30 p.m.
- August 30 - Back to School night
Pre-K, PPCD, Kinder, 3rd, 4th grades
- Sept 1 - Back to School night
1st, 2nd, 5th grades and Life Skills
Looking for a fun and challenging way to involve your child in mathematics, check out Math Pentathlon! Using a game format, students with a broad range of abilities develop logical, computational and spatial reasoning skills. Within each division, children will learn 5 different games. To learn more about the National Math Pentathlon program and games please visit their website. Clayton Elementary School has a strong history in the Math Pentathlon program.
Last year we had over 150 students actively participating on the team with over 25 kids on the waitlist. Due to the size of the program, parent/family involvement is required. Pentathletes meet each Tuesday from 2:57 pm - 3:57 pm. Students are required to attend tournament in the spring. Please visit the Clayton Math Pentathlon Website for more information. Please feel free to contact the Director, Angi Menell, with questions or concerns. Please contact Angi Menell at email@example.com if you have MP questions.
