TOP NEWS

  • Teacher Appreciation Luncheon - Help us honor our wonderful teachers at the Teacher Appreciation Luncheon on Thursday, Sept. 18th.  Please CLICK HERE to sign up to bring a dish, help set up or take down.  Contact: Lisa Williams, lisapwilliams4@gmail.com.

 

  • Dudes of Cardinals (DOCs) Meeting on Sept. 19th @ 7:15am - Join us along with your Cardinals on Friday, Sept. 19th starting at 7:15am in the Clayton Cafeteria.  Spend a few extra minutes with your Cardinal in the morning having a doughnut and juice/coffee. Students and DOCs will all be in the cafeteria together to start where we'll talk about creating and building games and tools with your Cardinal.  These skills will help our Cardinals increase their "software literacy" - critically important for high school and beyond.  We will talk about "coding to learn" rather than "learning to code" and previous adult experience with programming isn't required.  Our Dudes who have no prior coding/programming experience can easily learn alongside our Cardinals in low-stress and fun ways that will strengthen Cardinal problem solving and critical thinking skills and also provide a creative outlet. Presenter will be Sumeer Arya.  All Dads and Dudes (Grandfathers, Uncle, etc.) are invited.  By attending, you automatically become a member, no obligation! Participation in the DOCs program is one small gesture to show your Cardinal how much you care, plus you can meet other DOCs and connect with some of the things the school has to offer.  Hope to see you there.  For more information on DOCs CLICK HERE Contact: Jim Farrell, farrellj25@yahoo.com.

  • Austin Empty Bowl Project at Clayton - The Austin Empty Bowl Project is gearing up for the 18th annual event in November.  Last year, Clayton Elementary's art teachers answered a call for more bowls by offering a series of bowl making and bowl glazing workshops to support this worthy cause.  We are proud to participate in that way again. Ms. Hallmark will hold workshops on Monday afternoons from 3-4pm. Students in 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades are invited to sign up with an adult to make and glaze bowls that will be donated to the Austin Empty Bowl Event on Sunday, Nov. 23, 2014.  Space is limited to 20 participants per class.  Students must bring an adult to work together on the project.  This is a nice way to share quality time and explore an art form while helping a worthy cause.  The workshops will run on the following Mondays (9/22, 9/29, 10/6, 10/20, 10/27, 11/3).  You must sign up in advance to participate.  CLICK HERE to sign up.  Sign up is on a "first come, first served" basis.  Contact: Nancy Hallmark, nancy.hallmark@austinisd.org
