CLAYTON COMMUNITY SUPPORT COMMITTEE
Clayton's Sister School - Perez Elementary
The Clayton Community Outreach Committee’s mission is to foster a community between the families at Clayton Elementary and Perez Elementary Schools, and build a community of giving and service within the Clayton Community. Perez and Clayton have always had a special connection. Both schools opened in 2006 and have a long history of ties between their principals.
The Community Outreach Committee accomplishes our mission through several cross cultural events, including a joint school march for the Austin MLK day parade, Clayton Choir singing at Perez, Band Folkloric performance of Perez students at Perez, and Clayton’s many resource raising efforts to assist financially disadvantaged families at Perez, including: Coats for Kids, Thanksgiving Basket Drive, Angel Tree, book donations and other fundraising efforts.
This year we are working to partner with Care Club to utilize the amazing compassion of our students in our community service efforts, organize a reading program that brings students at Clayton and Perez together (virtually) and we have added a Back to School Drive to support Perez families impacted by the COVID pandemic.
