Clay County Schools is seeking input from parents as we look toward the 2015-2016 school year. Parents, please complete the survey below by Friday, May 29. We want to know how the schools are doing from your perspective. All surveys are completely anonymous.
Dear Parents and Families,
You are invited to our Scholastic Book Fair, a reading event packed with excitement for students and families. Join us from Monday, May 18th to Friday, May 22nd, any time between 9am – 2pm to support the super student in your life, and to promote literacy! We will also hold a Family Night on Tuesday, May 19th from 5pm – 7pm and Moms and Muffins on Thursday, May 23rd from 7:45am – 8:25am.
A Book Fair gives students access to books at affordable prices and makes reading a positive experience. Children are more likely to read the books they personally get to choose. It’s one of the best ways to motivate kids to read more. The more time children spend reading, the stronger their reading skills are. And strong reading skills are the pathway to succeed in school and in life. Reading is the most powerful skill of all!
Please join us to make this Book Fair the BEST our school has ever seen, while helping your students choose books for the long hot summer afternoons. If you are unable to visit during the book fair you may also shop online at http://bookfairs.scholastic.com/homepage/tyneselementaryschool. I look forward to seeing you!

The Clay County School District is committed to the use of person first language. According to the article, “A Few Words About People First Language”, by Kathie Snow, “People First Language puts the person before the disability, and describes what a person has, not who a person is.” To read her full-length article visit http://www.disabilityisnatural.com/explore/people-first-language.
